Lost time is never found again. 
You may delay, but time will not.

~Benjamin Franklin

Yesterday’s the past, tomorrow’s the future, but today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.

~Bil Keane

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent.  Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

~Carl Sandburg

 

If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?  Patience and time do more than strength or passion.

~John Wooden


Waste your money and you’re only out of money, but waste your time and you’ve lost a part of your life.

~Michael LeBoeuf

Time has been transformed, and we have changed; it has advanced and set us in motion; it has unveiled its face, inspiring us with bewilderment and exhilaration.

~Khalil Gibran

 

We must use time as a tool, not as a crutch. 

The great French Marshall Lyautey once asked his gardener to plant a tree. The gardener objected that the tree was slow growing and would not reach maturity for 100 years.

The Marshall replied, ‘In that case, there is no time to lose; plant it this afternoon!’

~John F. Kennedy
