Quotes about Time
Busy Quotes - Time Flies Quotes

Time Flies! These quotes are about the nature of time, and using your time well by avoiding meaningless busy work.

At every instant of every day, you are making a choice of how you spend your time. You have a very limited amount of time, so your time is extremely valuable. You can't do everything you consider doing, or everything others demand of you. You establish your real priorities in life by your choices of how you allocate your time. Whenever you spend time on some mindless activity, or meeting someone else's demands (that don't further your own life purpose), you have chosen your priorities -- but have you chosen well?

Time, like life itself, has no inherent meaning.
We give our own meaning to time as to life.

A time for everything: a time to relax and a time to be busy,

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is,
not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
- attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr
