Quotes on Time
May 21, 2010
My sage stepmother sent me some gems I wanted to share with you. She has an inspirational calendar chock full of wisdom. She even tossed in one of her own. The subject? My favorite: time.
“Life is all about timing… the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable, attainable. Have the patience. Wait it out. It’s all about timing.” ~ Stacey Charter
Ah, a delicious notion of savoring the waiting! How we hate to wait! But did you know that the waiting place is the schoolhouse of wisdom? I am beginning to understand that now.
And another of my favorite women writes:
“Since time is the one immaterial object which we cannot influence–either speed up nor slow down, add to nor diminish–it is an imponderably valuable gift.” ~Maya Angelou
You can expand your consciousness, according to Marianne Williamson. It involves meditation, a slowing down of our internal metronomes to the Oneness of All Things. See NPR interview I did with her.
To cap it off, we have one more beauty to share today:
“Use [time] wisely and enjoy that gift for as long as you have it.” ~ My wise stepmom
So there you have it! What are your favorite quotes on time?
