Passing Time

“The timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness.

And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory

and tomorrow is today’s dream.”

Khalil Gibran

“There are moments when I wish

I could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away,

but I have the feeling that if I did,

the joy would be gone as well.”


  Nicholas Sparks

“The cost of a thing

is the amount of what I will call life

which is required to be exchanged for it,

immediately or in the long run.”

Henry David Thoreau

“Until you value yourself,

you won’t value your time.

Until you value your time,

you will not do anything with it. ”

M. Scott Peck

“And therein lies the whole of man’s plight.

Human time does not turn in a circle;

it runs ahead in a straight line.

That is why man cannot be happy:

happiness is the longing for repetition.”


Milan Kundera

“Time isn’t precious at all,

because it is an illusion.

What you perceive as precious

is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now.

That is precious indeed.

The more you are focused on time

—past and future—

the more you miss the Now,

the most precious thing there is.”

Eckhart Tolle

    Beautiful thoughts on Time with the human desire not to run out of

  2. Great quotes! My favorite is the one by M. Scott Peck. It really spoke to me because I can waste quite a bit of time. 🙂 But as they say, “Time is relative.”

  3. A lovely post, WG. The Milan Kundera quote is quite the thought-provoker.

We always appreciate your comments. Thank you for adding your insight to the conversation.
