Quotes about Time


Who controls the past, [...] controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.

George Orwell

Neil Gaiman

If you live to be eighty, you’ll have slept thirty years away, gone to school and sat with homework for nine, and worked for almost fourteen. Since you’ve already spent more than six years being little kids and playing, and you’re later going to be spending at least twelve cleaning house, cooking food, and looking after your own kids, it means you’ve got nine years at most to live.

Janne Teller

Stephenie Meyer

Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life.

Eckhart Tolle

Time past and time future
Allow but a little consciousness.
To be conscious is not to be in time
But only in time can the moment in the rose-garden
Be remembered; involved with past and future.
Only through time time is conquered.

T. S. Eliot


It is a happy thing that time quells the longings of vengeance and hushes the promptings of rage and aversion.

Charlotte Bronte

Time is all you have. And you may find one day that you have less than you think.
