Eternal wisdom on the beauty and brevity of time

A simple and heartfelt dedication to a humble man, my uncle, whose time on Earth came full circle in the small hours of this morning. May your still heart be at peace.

"Day, n. A period of twenty-four hours, mostly misspent."

- Ambrose Bierce

“Only put off until tomorrow what you are willing to die having left undone.”

- Pablo Picasso 

"Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can't buy more hours.  Scientists can't invent new minutes. And you can't save time to spend it on another day.  Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow."

- Denis Waitely

"If you are not doing what you love, you are wasting your time."

- Billy Joel

"I will prepare and some day my chance will come."

- Abraham Lincoln

"Use your precious moments to live life fully every single second of every single day."

- Marcia Wieder

"Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drowned your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

- Steve Jobs

"Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein."

- Life’s Little Instruction Book, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

"Watches are so named as a reminder — if you don't watch carefully what you do with your time, it will slip away from you."

- Drew Sirtor

"The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it."

- W M Lewis

"Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them."

- Dion Boucicault

"Time is making fools of us again."

- J.K. Rowling

Keep well, live well.
