Time Quotes

"What necessity is there to dwell on the Past, when the Present is so much surer—the Future so much brighter?" ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte "Time after time have nations, ay, and rich and strong nations, learned in the arts, been and passed away and been forgotten, so that no memory of them remains. This is but one of several; for Time eats up the works of man." ~ She by H. Rider Haggard No matter how hard you try to be what you once were, you can only be what you are here and now. ~ Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury For pain must enter into its glorified life of memory before it can turn into compassion. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot Now is a bearable burden. What buckles the back is the added weight of the past's mistakes and the future's fears. ~ The Big Time by Fritz Leiber The flesh surrenders itself, he thought. Eternity takes back its own. Our bodies stirred these waters briefly, danced with a certain intoxication before the love of life and self, dealt with a few strange ideas, then submitted to the instruments of Time. What can we say of this? I occurred. I am not . . . yet, I occurred. ~ Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert Men live their lives trapped in an eternal present, between the mists of memory and the sea of shadow that is all we know of the days to come. ~ A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. ~ The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us." ~ The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien "Death and taxes and childbirth! There's never any convenient time for any of them!" ~ Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell
