And when is there time to remember, to sift, to weigh, to estimate, to total?
Clocks slay time... time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life.
Day, n. A period of twenty-four hours, mostly misspent.
Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough.
George Bernard Shaw
For disappearing acts, it's hard to beat what happens to the eight hours supposedly left after eight of sleep and eight of work.
Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present.
Lost time is never found again.
Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.
Much may be done in those little shreds and patches of time which every day produces, and which most men throw away.
Charles Caleb Colton
The clock talked loud. I threw it away, it scared me what it talked.
The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.
C. S. Lewis
The present is a point just passed.
The time I kill is killing me.
The trouble with our times is that the future is not what it used to be.
Time goes, you say? Ah, no! alas, time stays, we go.
Henry Austin Dobson

Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations.
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.
Henry David Thoreau
Time is money.
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.
Time is the longest distance between two places.
Time is the school in which we learn, time is the fire in which we burn.
Time is the wisest counsellor of all.
Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.
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
We are time's subjects, and time bids be gone.
What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know.
You can never plan the future by the past.
You may delay, but time will not.
You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.
James M. Barrie
