Time

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 (1878-1967) American poet.

Youth, large, lusty, loving -- Youth, full of grace, force, fascination. Do you know that Old Age may come after you with equal grace, force, fascination?

Walt Whitman (1819-1892) American poet.

Look not mournfully into the Past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the Present. In is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy Future, without fear, and a manly heart.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882) U.S. poet.

Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.

The end comes when we no longer talk with ourselves. It is the end of genuine thinking and the beginning of the final loneliness.

The illimitable, silent, never-resting thing called Time, rolling, rushing on, swift, silent, like an all-embracing ocean-tide, on which we and all the universe swim like exhalations, like apparitions which are, and then are not: this is forever very literally a miracle; a thing to strike us dumb, for we have no word to speak about it.

Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) British historian and essayist.

The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.

Albert Einstein (1879-1955) German-Swiss-U.S. scientist.

Only by acceptance of the past, can you alter it.
