As we celebrate Recovery Month, it is time for Congress to knock down the barriers to treatment and recovery for 26 million Americans suffering the ravages of alcohol and drug addiction.

I'm in prison. But my heart and mind is free. Gangsta haters on the streets are doing more time than me. They need 30 police escorts with them every time they walk down the street.

The boys of my people began very young to learn the ways of men, and no one taught us we just learned by doing what we saw, and we were warriors at a time when boys now are like girls.

Now I'm fighting cancer, everybody knows that. People ask me all the time about how you go through your life and how's your day, and nothing is changed for me.

Acting has given me a way to channel my angst. I feel like an overweight, pimply faced kid a lot of the time - and finding a way to access that insecurity, and put it toward something creative is incredibly rewarding. I feel very lucky.

If you're climbing the ladder of life, you go rung by rung, one step at a time. Don't look too far up, set your goals high but take one step at a time. Sometimes you don't think you're progressing until you step back and see how high you've really gone.

Don't forget it's daylight savings time. You spring forward, then you fall back. It's like Robert Downey Jr. getting out of bed.

Sometimes your friends are your lovers, or have been at one time.

When I write stuff and I help cast it, I turn away good people all the time. I may turn them down because this one's too tall and that one doesn't have a high enough voice or this one looks to old to match up with that one - there's a billion reasons not to hire somebody.

Every time you walk down the street people are screaming, 'You're fired!'

Every time I write something, I think, this is the most offensive thing I will ever write. But no. I always surprise myself.

It takes less time to do a thing right, than it does to explain why you did it wrong.

I can mention many moments that were unforgettable and revelatory. But the most single revelatory three minutes was the first time I put on scuba gear and dived on a coral reef. It's just the unbelievable fact that you can move in three dimensions.

If we don't get gun-control laws in this country, we are full of beans. To have the National Rifle Association rule the United States is pathetic. And I agree with Mayor Michael Bloomberg: It's time to put up or shut up about gun control for both parties.

Love is a piano dropped from a fourth story window, and you were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Where does discontent start? You are warm enough, but you shiver. You are fed, yet hunger gnaws you. You have been loved, but your yearning wanders in new fields. And to prod all these there's time, the Bastard Time.

Aging gracefully is supposed to mean trying not to hide time passing and just looking a wreck. Don't worry girls, look like a wreck, that's the way it goes.

And as a character, what I found very inspiring about playing Dharma, especially at that time, is that the women on television were more neurotic than they were free. And I thought, this is a rare bird and this is unique on television and I think it's really refreshing.

Try not to have a good time... this is supposed to be educational.

I like ice hockey, but it's a frustrating game to watch. It's hard to keep your eyes on both the puck and the players and too much time passes between scoring in hockey. There are usually more fights than there are points.

Our enemies can deal a blow to us any time they wish. They did not wait for permission to do this. They do not deal a blow with prior notice. They do not take action because they can't.

Any time you think you have the game conquered, the game will turn around and punch you right in the nose.

You never give away your heart you lend it from time to time. If it were not so, how could we take it back without asking?

Children are smarter than any of us. Know how I know that? I don't know one child with a full time job and children.

People who don't know me have opinions about me. That's the part that's very hurtful. Because how do you form an opinion about somebody if you've never met them or spent any time with them? So it's all based upon hearsay or things that they've read.

You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we're doing it.

I'm being treated like a sex object, cried the lady. No matter. I will take care of it, said Time soothingly.

No story is the same to us after a lapse of time or rather we who read it are no longer the same interpreters.

I do not read advertisements. I would spend all of my time wanting things.

If I have to move up in a building, I choose the elevator over the escalator. Because one time I was riding the escalator and I tripped. I fell down the stairs for an hour and a half.

October is a fine and dangerous season in America. a wonderful time to begin anything at all. You go to college, and every course in the catalogue looks wonderful.

I think an artist has always to be out of step with his time.

A lot of people would be embarrassed to admit that they were on 'Barney', but I embrace the fact. I just had such a wonderful time doing that show. I learned what a camera and prop is, and all that. I learned my manners too, so I guess that's a good thing!

It's plain hokum. If you can't convince 'em, confuse 'em. It's an old political trick. But this time it won't work.

No country can act wisely simultaneously in every part of the globe at every moment of time.

To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time.

True time is four-dimensional.

Everything that has existed, lingers in the Eternity.

Nothing puzzles me more than the time and space; and yet nothing troubles me less.

We have not the time to take our time.

Time is a circus, always packing up and moving away.

When Time is spent, Eternity begins.

It might interest you to know that the 1828 Noah Webster Dictionary identifies the optimist in complimentary terms, but says nothing about the pessimist. The word 'pessimist' was not in our vocabulary at that time. It's a modern 'invention' which I believe we should 'dis-invent.'

We hear tears loudly on this side of Heaven. What we don't take time to contemplate are the even louder cheers on the other side of death's valley.

I took the vow of celibacy in 1906. I had not shared my thoughts with my wife until then, but only consulted her at the time of making the vow. She had no objection.

Low-income people, racial or ethnic minorities, pregnant women, seniors, people with special needs, people in rural areas - they all have a much harder time accessing a dentist than other groups of Americans.

At a time when the Post Office is losing substantial revenue from the instantaneous flow of information by email and on the Internet, slowing mail service is a recipe for disaster.

The history of American democracy, to say the least, has been checkered. Our nation was founded at a time when people of African descent were held in bondage. After slavery was abolished, they were forced to endure legal discrimination for another 100 years.

When I ran for the Senate the first time, I ran against the wealthiest guy in the state of Vermont. He spent a lot on advertising - very ugly stuff. He kept attacking me as a liberal. He didn't use the word 'socialist' at all because everybody in the state knows that I am that.

I'm seeing the world partially through the eyes of a kid. Not all the time. There's no black and white to it. But sometimes I'm seeing it like I'm 4.

My mother is from another time - the funniest person to her is Lucille Ball; that's what she loves. A lot of times she tells me she doesn't know what I'm talking about. I know if I wasn't her son and she was flipping through the TV and saw me, she would just keep going.

I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. I've been challenged by so many people, and I don't frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you, this country doesn't have time either.

I get a lot of credit for comb-overs. But it's not really a comb-over. It's sort of a little bit forward and back. I've combed it the same way for years. Same thing, every time.

I will tell you this: I have fun, a lot of fun with 'The Apprentice.' When I did the books - and now we have a book out. And all the time, books are prestigious. But there's sort of nothing like having the big hot show on television.

It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.

In a time of domestic crisis, men of goodwill and generosity should be able to unite regardless of party or politics.

Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while... you don't do things right once in a while... you do them right all the time. Winning is habit.

I have finished second twice in my time at Green Bay, and I don't ever want to finish second again. There is a second place bowl game, but it is a game for losers played by losers. It is and always has been an American zeal to be first in anything we do, and to win, and to win, and to win.

You don't do things right once in a while. You do things right all the time.

Every time a football player goes to ply his trade, he's got to play from the ground up - from the soles of his feet right up to his head. Every inch of him has to play.

A mother deserves a day off to care for a sick child or sick parent without running into hardship - and you know what, a father does, too. It's time to do away with workplace policies that belong in a 'Mad Men' episode.

As I said last week in the wake of the grand jury decision, I think Ferguson laid bare a problem that is not unique to St. Louis or that area, and is not unique to our time, and that is a simmering distrust that exists between too many police departments and too many communities of color.

On the 'Star,' you were forced to learn to write a simple declarative sentence. This is useful to anyone. Newspaper work will not harm a young writer and could help him if he gets out of it in time.

When you go to war as a boy, you have a great illusion of immortality. Other people get killed, not you... Then, when you are badly wounded the first time, you lose that illusion, and you know it can happen to you.

'Good English' is whatever educated people talk; so that what is good in one place or time would not be so in another.

I had a good time boxing. I enjoyed it - and I may come back.

I used to tease Joe Louis by reminding him that I was the greatest of all time. But Joe Louis was the greatest heavyweight fighter ever.

We've been programmed, from the time that we were very, very little, about what we can't do - about what is impossible.

You can't keep your mind on fighting when you're thinking about a woman. You can't keep your concentration. You feel like sleeping all the time.

Don't program yourself to break down as you age with thoughts that decline is inevitable. Time may be passing for our bodies, but because they house our ageless souls, we never need to see ourselves as old and infirm.

When I was young, my brother David and I were farmed off to foster homes, and I spent time in orphanages. My father abandoned us. Here's the most important person in my life, and I never met him.

In my entire life, any time I've ever lost something, I've gotten something even better going around the next corner. It's like one door closes and another door opens. As long as I can walk through the produce section in every grocery store in this country and eat the grapes that they're going to throw away, I know I can be fine.

Whenever you're going through a tough time, generally, you become more compassionate, you become softer, you become more thoughtful, kinder. These are all spiritual qualities that will help you to align yourself with God and God consciousness rather than with a split fear-based consciousness.

My father, who was jailed for stealing on more than one occasion, just abandoned his fatherly responsibilities and disappeared. I grew up working from the time I was nine years of age. Money was a big issue everywhere I lived.

Taking care of children has nothing to do with politics. I think perhaps with time, instead of there being a politicization of humanitarian aid, there will be a humanization of politics.

No, we are not anti-white. But we don't have time for the white man. The white man is on top already, the white man is the boss already... He has first-class citizenship already. So you are wasting your time talking to the white man. We are working on our own people.

I believe in the brotherhood of man, all men, but I don't believe in brotherhood with anybody who doesn't want brotherhood with me. I believe in treating people right, but I'm not going to waste my time trying to treat somebody right who doesn't know how to return the treatment.

We are not anti-white. But we don't have time for the white man. The white man is on top already, the white man is the boss already... he has first-class citizenship already. So you are wasting your time talking to the white man. We are working on our own people.

Every time somebody speaks of my honesty, there is someone who quivers inside me.

Conscious of not being able to separate myself from my time, I have decided to become part of it.

Up until the 1920s, everyone thought the universe was essentially static and unchanging in time.

If I had a time machine, I'd visit Marilyn Monroe in her prime or drop in on Galileo as he turned his telescope to the heavens.

I think there is a little magic in the fact that I'm so totally real but look so artificial at the same time.

I just don't have time to get old!

I only ever play Vegas one night at a time. It's a hideous, gaudy place; it may not be the end of the world per se, but you can certainly see it from there.

I've had a lot of people tell me they watched 'Old Dogs' with their kids and had a good time.

Do I perform sometimes in a manic style? Yes. Am I manic all the time? No. Do I get sad? Oh yeah. Does it hit me hard? Oh yeah.

I bought one of the first Nintendo systems and brought that home, and we were playing 'Legend of Zelda' at the time, and it was addicting, and I was playing it for hours and hours and hours.

One of my favourite actors of all time, although he doesn't necessarily play villains, is Peter Lorre.

I have a difficult time doing an Irish accent; even now, it kind of fades slowly into Scottish.

The writer's greed is appalling. He wants, or seems to want, everything and practically everybody, in another sense, and at the same time, he needs no one at all.

As you get older, time speeds up but life slows down.

Time is more valuable than money, because time is irreplaceable.

People who use time wisely spend it on activities that advance their overall purpose in life.

My first popular book, 'A Brief History of Time,' aroused a great deal of interest, but many found it difficult to understand.

I have wondered about time all my life.

I have so much that I want to do. I hate wasting time.

It now appears that the way the universe began can indeed be determined, using imaginary time.

Imaginary time is a new dimension, at right angles to ordinary, real time.

Our minds work in real time, which begins at the Big Bang and will end, if there is a Big Crunch - which seems unlikely, now, from the latest data showing accelerating expansion. Consciousness would come to an end at a singularity.

Time travel was once considered scientific heresy, and I used to avoid talking about it for fear of being labelled a 'crank.'

Before 1915, space and time were thought of as a fixed arena in which events took place, but which was not affected by what happened in it. Space and time are now dynamic quantities... space and time not only affect but are also affected by everything that happens in the universe.

Even if it turns out that time travel is impossible, it is important that we understand why it is impossible.

Most people don't have time to master the very mathematical details of theoretical physics.

Time can behave like another direction in space under extreme conditions.

I was not a good student. I did not spend much time at college; I was too busy enjoying myself.

It's time to commit to finding the answer, to search for life beyond Earth. Mankind has a deep need to explore, to learn, to know. We also happen to be sociable creatures. It is important for us to know if we are alone in the dark.

We lived in a tall, narrow Victorian house, which my parents had bought very cheaply during the war, when everyone thought London was going to be bombed flat. In fact, a V-2 rocket landed a few houses away from ours. I was away with my mother and sister at the time, but my father was in the house.

I the heir of all the ages, in the foremost files of time.

Whenever a thing is done for the first time, it releases a little demon.

I tweet in the morning and the evening. To write 12 hours a day, there is a moment when you're really tired. It's my relaxing time.

I talk to my readers on social networking sites, but I never tell them what the book is about. Writing is lonely, so from time to time I talk to them on the Internet. It's like chatting at a bar without leaving your office. I talk with them about a lot of things other than my books.

I have been practicing archery for a long time; a bow and arrow helps me to unwind.

I don't set out to write about spirituality; I am free to do something different every time.

We think when God speaks to us, there's going to be a boom out of Heaven or we're going to get some chill bumps, but I really believe God's talking to us all the time. He's talking to us right in here. I call it our heart, our conscience, but it's the Holy Spirit talking to us.

God's got you in the palm of His hand. You won't leave one second before your time. If God wants you to be here, then you're going to be here.

When people are around us, they should leave better off than they were previously. Rather than feeling discouraged or defeated, people should feel challenged and inspired after spending any time with you and me.

Polio's pretty special because once you get an eradication, you no longer have to spend money on it; it's just there as a gift for the rest of time.

Over time, yes, countries will need to look at specific GMO products like they look at drugs today, where they don't approve them all. They look hard at the safety and the testing. And they make sure that the benefits far outweigh any of the downsides.

I understand how every healthy child, every new road, puts a country on a better path, but instability and war will arise from time to time, and I'm not an expert on how you get out of those things.

The typical project design time for a large company like IBM - and they keep track of this - is a little over four years.

In almost every area of human endeavor, the practice improves over time. That hasn't been the case for teaching.

I didn't used to wear a watch. Now I have a SPOT watch, which I wear all the time.

The world at large is less inequitable today than at any time in history. Number of people in abject poverty, as a percentage, is at all-time low.

Bitcoin is mostly about anonymous transactions, and I don't think over time that's a good way to go. I'm a huge believe in digital currency... but doing it on an anonymous basis I think that leads to some abuses, so I'm not involved in Bitcoin.

There's 20 companies that I have investments in - some batteries, some solar-thermal, one big nuclear thing. We need hundreds and hundreds of companies like that, so that in a 20-year time frame we really are starting to change the energy infrastructure.

The Gates Foundation has learned that two questions can predict how much kids learn: 'Does your teacher use class time well?' and, 'When you're confused, does your teacher help you get straightened out?'

By the time we see that climate change is really bad, your ability to fix it is extremely limited... The carbon gets up there, but the heating effect is delayed. And then the effect of that heat on the species and ecosystem is delayed. That means that even when you turn virtuous, things are actually going to get worse for quite a while.

Should there be cameras everywhere in outdoor streets? My personal view is having cameras in inner cities is a very good thing. In the case of London, petty crime has gone down. They catch terrorists because of it. And if something really bad happens, most of the time you can figure out who did it.

Fortunately for India, it has got a growing economy. If it is doing the right things with taxation and focusing on the right areas for human development, it is going to have no problem, over a period of time, taking care of its own needs.

Microsoft Research has a thing called the Sense Cam that, as you walk around, it's taking photos all the time. And the software will filter and find the ones that are interesting without having to think, 'Let's get out the camera and get that shot.' You just have that, and software helps you pick what you want.

What's amazing is, if young people understood how doing well in school makes the rest of their life so much interesting, they would be more motivated. It's so far away in time that they can't appreciate what it means for their whole life.

God knows when the end of time will come, not some fanatic... The world will end someday, but the end of the world and the end of time are two different things.

I wear wigs all the time on shows, and every day when I'm in public, at Dollywood. People say, 'How many wigs do you have?' And I say, 'Well, at least 365 because I wear at least one a day.'

I don't have time to stand around and listen to an 11-minute song.

My first job was singing on the Cas Walker radio show in Knoxville, Tennessee. I was about 10 years old, and I thought it was big time.

I cannot claim to have had a hard time publishing.

Tell me I have to be somewhere, and I'll be there 20 minutes early and stay there longer than anybody else. You hold up a lot of people if you're not on time.

When you get into your car, shut the door and be there for just half a minute. Breathe, feel the energy inside your body, look around at the sky, the trees. The mind might tell you, 'I don't have time.' But that's the mind talking to you. Even the busiest person has time for 30 seconds of space.

If danger arises in the present moment, there may be an emotion. There may even be pain. But that's a challenge, not a problem. For a problem to exist, you need time and repetitive mind activity.

Death means change our clothes. Clothes become old, then time to come change. So this body become old, and then time come, take young body.

Every time you think the problem is 'out there,' that very thought is the problem.

Every time I see high-trust cultures, I see a lessening of adversarialism.

Any time a country transitioned to a fiat currency, they collapsed. That's just world history; you don't have to know about cryptocurrency to know that.

I built a company at the same time I built a career.

I built a label at the same time I built a career.

We can continue to learn generation after generation and now is time to begin to learn how to love in a non-discriminatory way because we are intelligent enough, but we are not loving enough as a species.

There are many, many Christians who practice Buddhism, and they become better and better Christians all the time.

We will be more successful in all our endeavors if we can let go of the habit of running all the time, and take little pauses to relax and re-center ourselves. And we'll also have a lot more joy in living.

Civilisations have been destroyed many times, and this civilisation is no different. It can be destroyed. We can think of time in terms of millions of years and life will resume little by little. The cosmos operates for us very urgently, but geological time is different.

The purpose of a vacation is to have the time to rest. But many of us, even when we go on vacation, don't know how to rest. We may even come back more tired than before we left.

To be a monk is to have time to practice for your transformation and healing. And after that to help with the transformation and healing of other people.

It was a favorite expression of Theophrastus that time was the most valuable thing that a man could spend.

I groan daily under a body of sin and corruption. Oh for the time when I shall drop this flesh, and be free from sin!

Time was when they that feared the Lord spake often to one another; I am afraid that now they more often speak one against another.

However great may be the work for which we are responsible, we will always do well if we pause to spend time in sacred praise.

You and I, the people of God, have permission to come before the throne of Heaven at any time we will, and we are encouraged to come there with great boldness.

Knowing that the time to sleep has come, the Lord sleeps, and does well in sleeping. Often, when we have been fretting and worrying, we should have glorified God far more had we literally gone to sleep.

Dear friends, we may well sing to our Beloved when it is near the time of our departure. It draws near, and as it approaches, we must not dread it, but rather thank God for it.

But for me to have the opportunity to stand in front of a bunch of executives and present myself, I had to hustle in my own way. I can't tell you how frustrating it was that they didn't get that. No joke - I'd leave meetings crying all the time.

People always tell you, 'Be humble. Be humble.' When was the last time someone told you to be amazing? Be great! Be great! Be awesome! Be awesome!

Every time I say something that's extremely truthful out loud, it literally breaks the Internet.

There was a time Michael Jackson couldn't get his video on MTV because he was considered to be 'urban.' The Michael Jackson. So I literally have to be the Michael Jackson of apparel in order to break down the doors for everyone who will come after I'm gone, after I'm dead.

I'm a human being. I've got opinions, I'm not always right, I'm not always on time, I don't always say things in the proper way, but my intentions are always extremely pure.

The time is long overdue to stop looking for progress through racial or ethnic leaders. Such leaders have too many incentives to promote polarizing attitudes and actions that are counterproductive for minorities and disastrous for the country.

President Obama seems completely unaware of how many of the policies he is trying to impose have been tried before, in many times and places around the world, and have failed time and again.

In experimental philosophy, we are to look upon propositions inferred by general induction from phenomena as accurately or very nearly true, notwithstanding any contrary hypotheses that may be imagined, till such time as other phenomena occur by which they may either be made more accurate or liable to exceptions.

It may be that there is no such thing as an equable motion, whereby time may be accurately measured. All motions may be accelerated or retarded, but the true, or equable, progress of absolute time is liable to no change.

We're all bombarded with so many dietary messages that it's hard to find time to sort through all this information, but we do have time to take a look at our kids' plates.

The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time.

To buy books would be a good thing if we also could buy the time to read them.

For a long time, I thought I was ugly and disfigured. This made me shy and timid, and I often reacted to insults that were not intended.

At the end of the day, when it comes time to make that decision, as president, all you have to guide you are your values, and your vision, and the life experiences that make you who you are.

As president, you can get all kinds of advice from all kinds of people. But at the end of the day, when it comes time to make that decision, as president, all you have to guide you are your values and your vision and the life experiences that make you who you are.

I've said this time and again: My greatest concern coming into the White House was making sure my girls came out whole and normal, and decent and kind, just like I would expect them to if we were living on the South Side of Chicago. And it takes work to keep White House life normal for the kids.

As we've seen time and again, women and girls who are out there working, they are truly force multipliers, spreading opportunity through their families and communities - and not just by creating programs and nonprofit organizations, not just by hiring other women, but also by serving as role models themselves.

Time punishes us by taking everything, but it also saves us ” by taking everything.

Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real.

Every moment alters what came before. We reach across layers of time for the memories of our memories.

When our memories outweigh our dreams, we have grown old.

I'd trade all my tomorrows for one single yesterday.

I can't go back to yesterday - because I was a different person then.

Nothing is ever really lost to us as long as we remember it.

Focus on the good memories, discard the not so good.

People need hard times and oppression to develop psychic muscles.

Expect an early death ” it will keep you busier.

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.

You have been preoccupied while life hastens on. Meanwhile death will arrive, and you have no choice in making yourself available for that.

Why do we need time travel? All the answers come down to one. To elude death.

Hard times don't create heroes. It is during the hard times when the 'hero' within us is revealed.

Time is the longest distance between two places.

Time brings an end to everything. We should not mistake for a tragedy what is no more than the passage of time.

Time is a killer. Everyone knows that. Time will bury us. I wasted time, and now doth time waste me. Time makes dust of all things.

If only time could be seen whole, then you could see the past remaining intact, instead of vanishing in the rearview mirror. There is your immortality. Frozen in amber.

Tough times never last, but tough people do.

You're going to go through tough times - that's life. But I say, 'Nothing happens to you, it happens for you'. See the positive in negative events.

Hard times may have held you down, but they will not last forever. When all is said and done, you will be increased.

If you have time to whine and complain about something then you have the time to do something about it.

Forget the times of your distress, but never forget what they taught you.

Time is the only comforter for the loss of a mother.

Hard times always lead to something great.

Only when the clock stops does time come to life.

Recover time and happiness by minimizing these three apps: phone, calendar, and alarm clock.

The clock always ticks. There are times you don't hear it, and there are times that you do.

Watches are so named as a reminder - if you don't watch carefully what you do with your time it will slip away from you.

A man with one watch knows what time it is; a man with two watches is never quite sure.

A single clock works only as long as it refers, sooner or later, obviously or not, to the other clocks around it. One can rage about it, and we do. But without a clock and the dais of time, we each rage in silence, alone.

Sometime in your life, you will have occasion to say, What is this thing called time? What is that, the clock? You go to work by the clock, you get your martini in the afternoon by the clock and your coffee by the clock, and you have to get on the plane at a certain time, and arrive at a certain time. It goes on and on and on and on.

Unfortunately, the clock is ticking, the hours are going by. The past increases, the future recedes. Possibilities decreasing, regrets mounting.

The clock talked loud. I threw it away, it scared me what it talked.

Tick. Tick. Tick. This is the sound of your life running out.

The clock is impotent; mechanical time does not affect those living in an eternal present.

I want to turn the clock back to when people lived in small villages and took care of each other.

A clock is a little machine that shuts us out from the wonder of time.

Clocks were invented to warn us. Tick . Tock (time has passed).

I must govern the clock, not be governed by it.

Time is the most valuable thing that a man can spend.

Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it.

Make use of time, let not advantage slip.

If you don't value your time, neither will others. Stop giving away your time and talents- start charging for it.

Time makes more converts than reason.

Whenever we talk about it, we do so in terms of something lesser. We find or lose time, like a set of keys; we save and spend it, like money. Time creeps, crawls, flies, flees, flows, and stands still; it is abundant or scarce; it weighs on us with palpable heft.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Yesterday's the past, tomorrow's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.

All that really belongs to us is time; even he who has nothing else has that.

The cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.

Those who possess time are often not aware of its value.

The one that values his time can value the time of others as well.

When you understand the value of time, the resource and the wealth of time, you will be running away from the crowd.

Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.

With endless time, nothing is special. With no loss or sacrifice, we can't appreciate what we have.

Lots of people wait around for the right time. People don't know that there is no such thing as a right time. Time is never right nor wrong. The only negative factor of time is that you can lose it and the only positive factor of time is that you can seize it.

Seize the time, Meribor. Live now. Make now always the most precious time. Now will never come again.

Time as he grows old teaches many lessons.

I wasted time, and now doth time waste me.

What fools call wasting time is most often the best investment.

It is named the Web for good reason.

We say we waste time, but that is impossible. We waste ourselves.

The thing about working with time, instead of against it, ...is that it is not wasted. Even pain counts.

Don't live in the past. There's no point. You can't change anything. What a waste of time.

We cannot waste time. We can only waste ourselves.

Day, n. A period of twenty-four hours, mostly misspent.

If time is money, it seems moral to save time, above all one's own, and such parsimony is excused by consideration for others. One is straight-forward.

Time is money, especially when you are talking to a lawyer or buying a commercial.

Discipline is your relationship with the time you have left.

Work is hard. Distractions are plentiful. And time is short.

There is never enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important thing.

Take a deep breath, count to ten, and tackle each task one step at a time.

Spend less time giving your opinions and more time seeking the opinions of others.

I get paid not by how many hours I work, but by the importance of the problems I solve.

The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.

Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.

Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.

We keep counting time. We have the sensation time is running out, and we bug ourselves with this. Time is nothing but an abstract measure of motion. We are living in an eternal now.

People are frugal in guarding their personal property; but as soon as it comes to squandering time they are most wasteful of the one thing in which it is right to be stingy.

Let the refining and improving of your own life keep you so busy that you have little time to criticize others.

The best thing about time passing is the privilege of running out of it, of watching the wave of mortality break over me and everyone I know..

To man, time is given like a piece of land, as it were, entrusted to him for faithful tilling; a space in which to strive incessantly, achieve self-realization, move onward and upward.

Time is the cruelest teacher; first she gives the test, then teaches the lesson.

We will never have total control over this extraordinary dimension. Time will warp and confuse and baffle and entertain however much we learn about its capacities.

Time is not only at the heart of the way we organize life, but the way we experience it.

The more we learn, the more we can shape it to our will and destiny.

Presence means becoming aware of a physical and psychic self that is temporally extended. To be self-conscious is to recognize oneself as something that persists through time and is embodied.

The importance of time is rather practical than theoretical, rather in relation to our desires than in relation to truth.

Time flows in the same way for all human beings; every human being flows through time in a different way.

The key is in not spending time, but in investing it.

Time = Life, Therefore, waste your time and waste of your life, or master your time and master your life.

Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

You don't find the time to do things ” you make the time to do things.

We construct the experience of time in our minds, so it follows that we are able to change the elements we find troubling ” whether it's trying to stop the years racing past, or speeding up time when we're stuck in a queue, trying to live more in the present, or working out how long ago we last saw our old friends.

Time can't be measured in days the way money is measured in pesos and centavos, because all pesos are equal, while every day, perhaps every hour, is different.

Time is precious, but truth is more precious than time.

A simple definition of life: The chance you've been waiting for.

Life is a flash of lightning in the dark of night. It is a brief time of tremendous potential.

A good holiday is one spent among people whose notions of time are vaguer than yours.

There are no secrets that time does not reveal.

Perhaps all anxiety might derive from a fixation on moments ” an inability to accept life as ongoing.

Time passes, and little by little everything that we have spoken in falsehood becomes true.

Reality is a question of perspective; the further you get from the past, the more concrete and plausible it seems - but as you approach the present, it inevitably seems incredible.

Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.

We ask for long life, but 'tis deep life, or grand moments that signify. Let the measure of time be spiritual, not mechanical.

No use thinking of the past for its gone, don't think of the future because it has to come, think of the present because that's where you are.

Time ripens all things; with time all things are revealed; time is the father of truth.

Time is the wisest of all things that are, for it brings everything to light.

For those who love... time is eternity.

One day spent with someone you love can change everything.

Being with you and not being with you is the only way I have to measure time.

Love is the emblem of eternity; it confounds all notion of time; effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.

Love vanquishes time. To lovers, a moment can be eternity, eternity can be the tick of a clock.

I am not alone as long as my love is near me and I know it will be so till it's time to go. All through the winter, until the birds return in spring again I do not fear the time.

Be careful who you make memories with. Those things can last a lifetime.

Your time is way too valuable to be wasting on people that can't accept who you are.

Respect people who find time for you in their busy schedule, but love people who never look at their schedule when you need them.

The most fucked up joke life can play on you is letting you meet the right person at the wrong time.

No relationship is a waste of time. The wrong ones teach you the lessons that prepare you for the right one.

Love seems the swiftest, but it is the slowest of all growths. No man or woman really knows what perfect love is until they have been married a quarter of a century.

Time, which changes people, does not alter the image we have of them.

It's no good trying to keep up old friendships. It's painful for both sides. The fact is, one grows out of people, and the only thing is to face it.

Time is your most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can't make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you'll never get back.

You might fall in love instantly, but you don't love instantly... Love takes time.

Time doesn't take away from friendship, nor does separation.

Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear.

In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.

Take rest; a field that has rested gives a bountiful crop.

Alone time is the best time. But it never seems that way when it's happening, just after the fact.

This silence, this moment, every moment, if it's genuinely inside you, brings what you need.

I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.

Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.

Sometimes you need to step outside, get some air, and remind yourself of who you are and where you want to be. And sometimes, you have to venture outside your world in order to find yourself.

Some of the most powerful times are when we're quiet.

Solitude is the place of purification.

Believe me, it is the sign of a great man, and one who is above human error, not to allow his time to be frittered away: he has the longest possible life simply because whatever time was available he devoted entirely to himself.

You get to decide where your time goes. You can either spend it moving forward, or you can spend it putting out fires. You decide. And if you don't decide, others will decide for you.

When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing - just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park?

The prayer offered to God in the morning during your quiet time is the key that unlocks the door of the day. Any athlete knows that it is the start that ensures a good finish.

The most important habit is solitude, quiet time. People who enter their day by taking 45 minutes or an hour for themselves - meditation, prayer, inspirational reading, taking a walk - before they go for it in the real world do best.

When you feel the need for a spiritual lift, try getting to bed early and get up early to have a quiet time at dawn. Then carry the serene 'in tune' feeling that comes to you into your day, no matter what you may be doing.

And now, I'll do what's best for me.

I have just got a new theory of eternity.

Like as the waves make towards the pebbl'd shore, so do our minutes, hasten to their end.

Time abides long enough for those who make use of it.

Time passes irrevocably.

Time is flying never to return.

The past cannot be cured.

Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It is already tomorrow in Australia.

Time, the devourer of all things.

In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these.

One of the things I realized is that if you do not take control over your time and your life, other people will gobble it up. If you don't prioritize yourself, you constantly start falling lower and lower on your list, your kids fall lower and lower on your list.

Time is kind of an amazing thing because you can do so much with it. I think people underestimate time... I don't want to just sit on my phone for hours.

I had a period in my life where I decided that I would never be bored again and that, if I had any free time at all, I would make plans, and I would always be doing things. It actually was great for a year or so, but then I lost all of my friends.

I felt like, for so many years - and I still even feel it - as a girl, you can't really expect to go on stage and dress like a boy and jump around and scream with the audience and mosh and stuff, and every time that happens, I feel really proud.

When I do have free time, I spend it with friends, or I spend it at home writing or making something.

Shout out to Sting: that's the G.O.A.T. right there. The goat. Greatest of all time.

We have talked long enough in this country about equal rights. It is time now to write the next chapter - and to write it in the books of law.

Jerry Ford is so dumb he can't fart and chew gum at the same time.

Have fun in your command. Don't always run at a breakneck pace. Take leave when you've earned it, spend time with your families.

Spend more time in study and prayer. That's the secret of successful evangelism.

Traveling around the world and preaching for over 70 years did not give much time for reflection.

Well, I wouldn't say that I was in the great class, but I had a great time while I was trying to be great.

'Pears like I prayed all the time, 'bout my work, everywhere, I prayed an' groaned to the Lord.

I always like to take my time and examine the two candidates, see not only the two candidates but the policies they will bring in, the people they will bring in, who they might appoint to the Supreme Court, and look at the whole range of issues before making a decision.

Foe means enemy. Now, will we have differences of opinion with the Russians? Yes. Will they get mad at us from time to time, and we get mad at them? That's part of the normal diplomatic relations.

As I have done in every election since I started voting so many years ago, I always like to take my time and examine the two candidates, see not only the two candidates but the policies they will bring in, the people they will bring in, who they might appoint to the Supreme Court, and look at the whole range of issues before making a decision.

What we have to find is the right level of regulation of our financial system so that it has the incentive to invest in things, but at the same time, it is sufficiently regulated so it can't get in the kind of trouble that we have seen in the past and we have seen recently.

Whenever I counsel someone who feels called to be an evangelist, I always urge them to guard their time and not feel like they have to do everything.

I think we've taken the meaning of Christmas out. People don't stop and think about Jesus or the birth of Jesus. When they think of Christmas, they think of Santa Claus and - for the children, and they think of giving gifts and out-giving the next person of spending their time looking for the right thing for somebody who has everything.

The liberals in the House strongly resemble liberals I have known through the last two decades in the civil rights conflict. When it comes time to show on which side they will be counted, they excuse themselves.

Legal discrimination between the sexes is, in almost every instance, founded on outmoded views of society and the pre-scientific beliefs about psychology and physiology. It is time to sweep away these relics of the past and set further generations free of them.

Like public surface in general, sewers are unbelievably important. They're so important that we make sure they work basically all of the time. Which is why you never think of them - that's kind of the point.

I think of myself as a democratic capitalist, although I think the word 'socialism' loses its meaning every time that it is used to describe literally any policy left of far right by the current Republicans.

I've said many a time that I think the Un-American Activities Committee in the House of Representatives was the most un-American thing in America!

Opinion is like a pendulum and obeys the same law. If it goes past the centre of gravity on one side, it must go a like distance on the other; and it is only after a certain time that it finds the true point at which it can remain at rest.

For an author to write as he speaks is just as reprehensible as the opposite fault, to speak as he writes; for this gives a pedantic effect to what he says, and at the same time makes him hardly intelligible.

Christmas time! That man must be a misanthrope indeed, in whose breast something like a jovial feeling is not roused - in whose mind some pleasant associations are not awakened - by the recurrence of Christmas.

It is requisite for the relaxation of the mind that we make use, from time to time, of playful deeds and jokes.

Our generation was born during the turmoil following the First World War. That war marked the dividing line - at least for the Western World - between the comfortable security of the 19th century and the instability and flux of our own time.

There are people in every time and every land who want to stop history in its tracks. They fear the future, mistrust the present, and invoke the security of a comfortable past which, in fact, never existed.

If the leading Negro classes cannot assume and bear the uplift of their own proletariat, they are doomed for all time. It is not a case of ethics; it is a plain case of necessity. The method by which this may be done is, first, for the American Negro to achieve a new economic solidarity.

A big man has no time really to do anything but just sit and be big.

We want to gently remind people that we don't have forever. In my work, I hear parents complain all the time that their children grow up so fast. But they don't take the time to sit down and talk to each other. The last bastion of getting together is around the table.

I've studied authoritarianism for a very long time - for 40 years - and they're started by people's attempts to control the ideological and linguistic territory.

I have a hard time figuring out what kind of box to put me in, too, because I don't know exactly what's going on around me or why. But I need to stay outside of boxes because then I can look at what's inside of them without being part of them.

Once someone has spent enough time cultivating bad habits and biding their time, they are much diminished. Much of what they could have been has dissipated.

I suppose for a very long time I've been trying to understand how it is that people might make sense out of their lives and make meaning and make their lives meaningful in the face of the trouble that life brings.

At seventy-seven it is time to be in earnest.

Glorious shall be the battle when the time comes to fight for our people and our race.

Time as he grows old teaches all things.

I think there is a sense of being forced at this time to look at America's really large shadow and that's not all that bad.

Surely a long life must be somewhat tedious, since we are forced to call in so many trifling things to help rid us of our time, which will never return.

By taking a second wife he pays the highest compliment to the first, by showing that she made him so happy as a married man, that he wishes to be so a second time.

The slaveholders are terrible for promising to give you this or that, or such and such a privilege, if you will do thus and so, and when the time of fulfillment comes, and one claims the promise, they, forsooth, recollect nothing of the kind; and you are, like as not, taunted with being a liar.

I wanted to have the adoration of John Lennon but have the anonymity of Ringo Starr. I didn't want to be a frontman. I just wanted to be back there and still be a rock and roll star at the same time.

When I heard the Pixies for the first time, I connected with that band so heavily I should have been in that band - or at least in a Pixies cover band.

Every time I see documentaries or infomercials about little kids with cancer, I just freak out. It affects me on the highest emotional level... Anytime I think about it, it makes me sadder than anything I can think of.

It no longer bothers me that I may be constantly searching for father figures; by this time, I have found several and dearly enjoyed knowing them all.

People have so many hang-ups about how other people live their lives. People always want to keep you in a little box, or they need to label you and fix you in time and location.

June Jordan, who died of cancer in 2002, was a brilliant, fierce, radical, and frequently furious poet. We were friends for thirty years. Not once in that time did she step back from what was transpiring politically and morally in the world. She spoke up, and led her students, whom she adored, to do the same.

Since the time of the witch burnings, the grandmothers and the healers and the midwives have been systematically targeted. And burned at the stake for hundreds of years, decimating whole communities.

I used to meditate all the time in bed. That was when I was raising my daughter, and I'd get her up and off to school, and then I would go back to bed and meditate. And then I would do the same in the evening, and that was very good for that period because I had so many things to juggle as a single mother.

It seems that I have always been ahead of my time. I had to wait nineteen years before Niagara was harnessed by my system, fifteen years before the basic inventions for wireless which I gave to the world in 1893 were applied universally.

During my time as a political strategist, one of the most vexing problems was figuring out why so many people vote against their perceived interests.

All books are divisible into two classes, the books of the hour, and the books of all time.

Books are divided into two classes, the books of the hour and the books of all time.

Celebrity was a long time in coming; it will go away. Everything goes away.

Comedy is tragedy - plus time.

I prefer doing TV, where it can be different every time.

There is hardly a pioneer's hut which does not contain a few odd volumes of Shakespeare. I remember reading the feudal drama of Henry V for the first time in a log cabin.

It's my official role to represent BTS to the world, and it's been a chance for me to mature as a person, but behind the scenes, I'm just one of seven members, and I'm inspired by the others all the time.

I have a hard time with morals. All I know is what feels right, what's more important to me is being honest about who you are. Morals I get a little hung up on.

By the time this concert ends this evening, 30,000 Africans will have died because of extreme poverty. By this time tomorrow evening, another 30,000. This does not make sense.

When I was a little kid we moved to Tulsa, then to St. Louis and, by the time I was in kindergarten, we lived in Springfield, Missouri. There I basically grew up.

What's valuable to me has become clearer as I've got older. To me, it's about the value of your time and your day and the value of the people you spend it with.

It's those difficult times that inform the next wonderful time, and it's a series of trade-offs, of events, of wins and losses.

The Internet has done a wonderful thing for us. But democracy doesn't work unless people are well informed, and I don't know that we are. People just don't have the time.

You can't be different for different's sake, and this doesn't always work, but you have to separate yourself from the normal read. Of course, it has to be truthful. If it's not truthful, don't waste your time.

I was a history and government major at Ohio State University, and I've spent a lot of time just fiddling around with who the next president's going to be, over the years, or who would I like to see in that job, or whatever. And I've come to believe, without any reservation, in this era, the best-prepared person for this job by far is Donald Trump.

Trains, like time and tide, stop for no one.

I don't need equal time, I am equal time!

I'm just wondering, folks, if I gave a speech on anti-capitalism, do you think I could be named Person of the Year by 'TIME Magazine?'

I want Obama to have to weigh in on Ben Affleck as Batman. It's about time Obama went to work.

I don't understand the NBA in that, each time they bring in a one-and-done kid, they have to release a veteran player on a roster. I don't understand why their players association condones that.

The idea of going back to college scares me, and I didn't even go. I went to college for one year, two semesters. If you add up the total time, I probably didn't even go one semester.

Liberals talk about the 'income inequality' and the 'unfairness' and the disparity of the haves and the have-nots in New York City. Who has been running that city for all this time? Who has created the underclass in this country? It's the Democrat Party.

The Founding Fathers are not just some people that happened to get mad a long time ago and want their freedom. They were special people in addition to what their natural yearnings were.

Media does not get everything they want all the time. The Democrats certainly don't. They don't win every election, and they don't win every battle.

There was a time when the United States government earned the trust of its people. There was a time when most people believed that the United States government was protecting them.

Braids are not new. Black women have been wearing braids for a very long time.

I grew up within Italian-American neighborhoods, everybody was coming into the house all the time, kids running around, that sort of stuff, so when I finally got into my own area, so to speak, to make films, I still carried on.

I certainly wasn't able to get it when I was a kid growing up on the Lower East Side; it was very hard at that time for me to balance what I really believed was the right way to live with the violence I saw all around me - I saw too much of it among the people I knew.

I can't really envision a time when I'm not shooting something.

You never know how much time you have left.

One of the things is that the good intentions of Prohibition, from reading over the years and from becoming obsessed with the research of gangs in New York City, seems to have allowed crime figures at the time, like Luciano, Capone, Torrio and Rothstein, to organize to become more powerful, which pulled all the way through until the '70s.

If I'm not complaining, I'm not having a good time, hah hah!

Can a film really change anything? I mean, what was the last time? Maybe the Italian neo-realists, where they became the voice and the heart and the soul of Italy, a nation that had been destroyed. I don't know.

Bureaucracy defends the status quo long past the time when the quo has lost its status.

I was living in a terrible time when people were being accused of being communists, and they attacked the movie industry, especially the writers. People couldn't work if they were on the blacklist. The studios banned them. It was the most onerous period in movie history. I don't think we have ever had a period so dark as that.

I was conscious of my father's fame from the time I was 6.

You have to do stand-up quite a long time before you learn how to do it well.

Most of the time you will fail, but you will also occasionally succeed. Those occasional successes make all the hard work and sacrifice worthwhile.

Riches are chiefly good because they give us time.

I grew up watching foreign programs - American, English, Mexican, and very little Kenyan. 'The Color Purple' was the first time I saw people who looked like me.

It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself.

I just live one day at a time.

If your woman is asleep every time you get home, she's just really tired. Of you.

It's a daily miracle to see a child grow and develop all the senses and language and speech and faculties, and they're so much fun and they're so delightful and they're so innocent. It just stops your heart every time; I can't get enough of it.

Life, if well lived, is long enough.

The present time has one advantage over every other - it is our own.

Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.

Every second is of infinite value.

Whether it's the best of times or the worst of times, it's the only time we've got.

You will never find time for anything. If you want time you must make it.

Enjoy yourself. It's later than you think.

How we spend our days, is, of course, how we spend our lives.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life.

Waste no more time arguing about what a good person should be. Be one.

To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.

It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it.

The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately.

As if you could kill time without injuring eternity.

We feast on time as time feasts on us.

Do we need more time? Or do we need to be more disciplined with the time we have?

People often complain about lack of time when lack of direction is the real problem.

I recommend you take care of the minutes and the hours will take care of themselves.

Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.

Ordinary people think merely of spending time, great people think of using it.

Time is the devourer of everything.

Lost wealth may be replaced by industry, lost knowledge by study, lost health by temperance or medicine, but lost time is gone forever.

Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested.

You can have it all. Just not all at once.

Lost time is never found again.

You may delay, but time will not.

Never leave 'till tomorrow which you can do today.

It is looking at things for a long time that ripens you and gives you a deeper meaning.

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

We must use time creatively, and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.

Time is really the only capital that any human being has, and the only thing he can't afford to lose.

Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them.

Lost, yesterday, somewhere between Sunrise and Sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered, for they are gone forever.

Mental time-travel is one of the greatest gifts of the mind. It makes us human, and it makes us special.

You cannot always wait for the perfect time. Sometimes you must dare to jump.

Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year - and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!

If time and reason are functions of each other, if we are creatures of time, then we had better know it, and try to make the best of it. To act responsibly.

You must match time's swiftness with your speed in using it, and you must drink quickly as though from a rapid stream that will not always flow.

An hour, once it lodges in the queer element of the human spirit, may be stretched to fifty or a hundred times its clock length.

The perfect time to do what you love is now.

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.

But time growing old teaches all things.

Time, whose tooth gnaws away everything else, is powerless against truth.

Time has been transformed, and we have changed it has advanced and set us in motion it has unveiled its face, inspiring us with bewilderment and exhilaration.

We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.

Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough.

Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.

It is my feeling that Time ripens all things with Time all things are revealed Time is the father of truth.

Another thing that freaks me out is time. Time is like a book. You have a beginning, a middle and an end. It's just a cycle.

And I think it's that time. And I think if you just step aside and Mr. Romney can kind of take over. You can maybe still use a plane. Though maybe a smaller one. Not that big gas guzzler you are going around to colleges and talking about student loans and stuff like that.

It is time to show the whole world that America is back - bigger and better and stronger than ever before.

It is time to effect a revolution in female manners - time to restore to them their lost dignity. It is time to separate unchangeable morals from local manners.

We act as if that being of a man or that being of a woman is actually an internal reality or something that is simply true about us, a fact about us, but actually it's a phenomenon that is being produced all the time and reproduced all the time, so to say gender is performative is to say that nobody really is a gender from the start.

Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience asks the question, is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.

The next time you hear me attacked as a socialist - like tomorrow - remember this: I don't believe that government should take over the grocery store down the street or control the means of production. But I believe that the middle class and the working families who produce the wealth of America deserve a fair deal.

I am not the first Buddha who came upon Earth, nor shall I be the last. In due time, another Buddha will arise in the world - a Holy One, a supremely enlightened One, endowed with wisdom in conduct, auspicious, knowing the universe, an incomparable leader of men, a master of angels and mortals.

Everything changes with time. You can't predict where you're gonna be next year; you have no idea, you know what I mean?

The right of every American to first-class citizenship is the most important issue of our time.

Even a genius cannot completely resist his Zeitgeist, the spirit of his time.

It's time to join the ranks of nations that have put the ugliness of capital punishment behind them.

I built a great company, one of the - some of the most iconic assets in the world, $10 billion of net worth, more than $10 billion of net worth, and frankly, I had a great time doing it.

Of all the inventions of humans, the computer is going to rank near or at the top as history unfolds and we look back. It is the most awesome tool that we have ever invented. I feel incredibly lucky to be at exactly the right place in Silicon Valley, at exactly the right time, historically, where this invention has taken form.

In this experiment, made on the 9th of October, 1876, actual conversation, backwards and forwards, upon the same line, and by the same instruments reciprocally used, was successfully carried on for the first time upon a real line of miles in length.

Any action is often better than no action, especially if you have been stuck in an unhappy situation for a long time. If it is a mistake, at least you learn something, in which case it's no longer a mistake. If you remain stuck, you learn nothing.

I ran for the presidency, despite hopeless odds, to demonstrate the sheer will and refusal to accept the status quo. The next time a woman runs, or a black, a Jew, or anyone from a group that the country is 'not ready' to elect to its highest office, I believe that he or she will be taken seriously from the start.

My biographers... would like to have my time at the court almost complete before they finish the book. We decided... to flip the order.

We learned many years ago that the rich may have money, but the poor have time.

I believe in God, who made of one blood all nations that on earth do dwell. I believe that all men, black and brown and white, are brothers, varying through time and opportunity, in form and gift and feature, but differing in no essential particular, and alike in soul and the possibility of infinite development.

Who, except the gods, can live time through forever without any pain?

I believe race is too heavy a burden to carry into the 21st century. It's time to lay it down. We all came here in different ships, but now we're all in the same boat.

I had to pick myself up and get on with it, do it all over again, only even better this time.

Any man can call time out, but no man can say how long the time out will be.

In time of difficulties, we must not lose sight of our achievements.

Once you are assigned to a flight, the whole crew is assigned at the same time, and then that crew trains together for a whole year to prepare for that flight.

We really do believe that we can improve the world, one song at a time.

Every time you step out on that field, it's tough. There is no easy way to approach it and no short cuts out there.

That's the beautiful thing about being a father for the first time; it has really made me get my concentration levels in check.

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.

When you stop thinking about yourself all the time, a certain sense of repose overtakes you.

When I was born, some of our relatives came to our house and told my mother, 'Don't worry, next time you will have a son.'

I think goals should never be easy, they should force you to work, even if they are uncomfortable at the time.

There is nothing as sweet as a comeback, when you are down and out, about to lose, and out of time.

The most important part are the fans, that people going home are happy. It's their time off, and you should give them something to enjoy.

Science is constantly proved all the time. If we take something like any fiction, any holy book, and destroyed it, in a thousand years' time, that wouldn't come back just as it was. Whereas if we took every science book and every fact and destroyed them all, in a thousand years they'd all be back because all the same tests would be the same result.

Genres aren't closed boxes. Stuff flows back and forth across the borders all the time.

I was kind of excited about going to jail the first time and I learnt some great dialogue.

When I'm doing a movie, I'm not doing anything else. It's all about the movie. I don't have a wife. I don't have a kid. Nothing can get in my way... I've made a choice, so far, to go on this road alone. Because this is my time. This is my time to make movies.

You take every opportunity you have to win a trophy. That is always the goal, and winning makes it a little bit easier the next time.

To me, drum soloing is like doing a marathon and solving equations at the same time.

The rhythm of relations of color and size makes the absolute appear in the relativity of time and space.

The principle of asceticism never was, nor ever can be, consistently pursued by any living creature. Let but one tenth part of the inhabitants of the earth pursue it consistently, and in a day's time they will have turned it into a Hell.

We still spend more time chasing funds than we do in the studio in creative work.

When you lose a lover it's like getting a bad haircut. It grows back in time.

Sometimes you have to play a long time to be able to play like yourself.

I fight to take a good photograph every single time.

We make dream fights all the time.

It took a long time, and a lot of years, for me to get comfortable with myself, like the way I am now.

Globalization has created this interlocking fragility. At no time in the history of the universe has the cancellation of a Christmas order in New York meant layoffs in China.

The police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.

If you have a chance to accomplish something that will make things better for people coming behind you, and you don't do that, you are wasting your time on this earth.

I have to think that I think it's always been a horse race between this administration's temporary political acumen and their completely, utterly, totally bankrupt policies. And they're coming home to roost. It was always a question of time. These guys aren't conservative. These guys are radicals.

The police can't protect consumers. People need to be more aware and educated about identity theft. You need to be a little bit wiser, a little bit smarter and there's nothing wrong with being skeptical. We live in a time when if you make it easy for someone to steal from you, someone will.

It is provided by the Constitution that the President shall from time to time give to the Congress information of the state of the Union and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.

For myself, for a long time... maybe I felt inauthentic or something, I felt like my voice wasn't worth hearing, and I think everyone's voice is worth hearing. So if you've got something to say, say it from the rooftops.

Reading or written language is a cultural invention that necessitated totally new connections among structures in the human brain underlying language, perception, cognition, and, over time, our emotions.

When I first went to rugby, I wanted it all; I just wanted it all, and you know, I thought it was just going to happen just like that, but I've come to learn that good things take time.

The time when there is no one there to feel sorry for you or to cheer for you is when a player is made.

I know America is very nice and very good people. I'm a professional athlete. I come here. I never have a problem with somebody about my religion, about my name. I am happy. I'm always comfortable because I never do anything wrong. All the time I do something right. I follow all the rules.

We must find new lands from which we can easily obtain raw materials and at the same time exploit the cheap slave labor that is available from the natives of the colonies. The colonies would also provide a dumping ground for the surplus goods produced in our factories.

Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time... I think I’ve forgotten this before.

My secret to staying young... Having no sense of time.

I was a Democrat for a period of time early on. And then I was also an independent. And then I became a Republican.

There was a lot of pressure to find a genre and stick to it. People would tell me all the time, 'You can't be all things to everyone.' I would say, 'I'm not trying to be! I'm being what I want to be for myself.'

The pretty fellows you speak of, I own entertain me sometimes, but is it impossible to be diverted with what one despises? I can laugh at a puppet show, at the same time I know there is nothing in it worth my attention or regard.

Writers of novels and romance in general bring a double loss to their readers; robbing them of their time and money; representing men, manners, and things, that never have been, or are likely to be.

Time has the same effect on the mind as on the face; the predominant passion and the strongest feature become more conspicuous from the others' retiring.

Girls grab me all the time. To me, that's regular, so it's not really crazy.

Sometimes, we have to turn our camera to a mirror to shoot something, and people think, 'Oh, that's very stylish.' Yes it is, but at the same time, we did it because we are shooting in a very small space, and that was our only option.

Every day, you have to prove yourself and convince - move forward and challenge yourself. And doubt all the time.

I would play games long enough to discover what games were doing and how they were doing it. And then I'd spend the rest of my time building.

As basic rules of a language must be practiced continually, and therefore are never fixed, so exercises toward distinct color effects never are done or over. New and different cases will be discovered time and again.

It is part of the photographer's job to see more intensely than most people do. He must have and keep in him something of the receptiveness of the child who looks at the world for the first time or of the traveler who enters a strange country.

The tombstone is about the only thing that can stand upright and lie on its face at the same time.

I think there's a right time for everything, and I'm a true believer that everything happens for a reason.

They get you to do a lot of stuff on 'Star Trek' by saying it's the first time this is ever gonna happen on 'Star Trek.'

It is at the time of dawn that we must commune with the gods.

Seven years is a long time, and he was there for me, when my mum died. He was very compassionate at that time. I couldn't have found anyone better in that situation.

Time becomes more precious when you have children.

I was a really big fan of cartoons growing up, and I loved to read too much into them most of the time.

We are each of us composed of atoms, but equally, we are composed by time.

It's the right idea, but not the right time.

There's childhood and early onset bipolar, but it transitions in your early adulthood into something a little bit different, and extremely severe. It was at that time that my impulse control just went out the window. Impulse control when you're manic just disappears.

I'm trying to do what I have never done - give the impression one has on entering a room: one sees everything and at the same time nothing.

As far as I know, Vera Miles had a terrible time with Hitchcock, and she wanted to get out of the contract. He didn't let her. She did 'Psycho,' and I believe, if you look at 'Psycho,' there isn't one close up of Vera, not one. After that, she would never even speak about him to anyone.

I have to bring to your notice a terrifying reality: with the development of nuclear weapons Man has acquired, for the first time in history, the technical means to destroy the whole of civilization in a single act.

Mama was a natural cook. At harvest time, she would whip up a noontime dinner for the men in the field: fried chicken with milk gravy, ham, mashed potatoes, lima beans, field peas, corn, slaw, sliced tomatoes, fried apples, biscuits, and peach pie.

The ostensible subject of my photographs may be motion, but the subtext is time. A dancer's movements illustrate the passage of time, giving it a substance, materiality, and space. In my photographs, time is stopped, a split second becomes an eternity, and an ephemeral moment is solid as sculpture.

I never smoke to excess - that is, I smoke in moderation, only one cigar at a time.

Loyalty to the Nation all the time, loyalty to the Government when it deserves it.

The only obligation which I have a right to assume is to do at any time what I think right.

I left the woods for as good a reason as I went there. Perhaps it seemed to me that I had several more lives to live and could not spare any more time for that one.

Beauty is the only thing that time cannot harm. Philosophies fall away like sand, creeds follow one another, but what is beautiful is a joy for all seasons, a possession for all eternity.

Let the people on both sides keep their self-possession, and just as other clouds have cleared away in due time, so will this, and this great nation shall continue to prosper as before.

It was that which gave promise that in due time the weights should be lifted from the shoulders of all men, and that all should have an equal chance. This is the sentiment embodied in that Declaration of Independence.

Athletic skills are acquired over a long period of time and after countless hours of practice.

Take time to be kind and to say 'thank you.'

There is a certain amount of dissatisfaction that goes with knowing your time, talent and abilities are not being properly used.

It is time for Congress to save the Postal Service, not dismantle it.

The intuition of the moral sentiment is an insight of the perfection of the laws of the soul. These laws execute themselves. They are out of time, out of space, and not subject to circumstance.

I liked to write from the time I was about 12 or 13. I loved to read. And since I only spoke to my brother, I would write down my thoughts. And I think I wrote some of the worst poetry west of the Rockies. But by the time I was in my 20s, I found myself writing little essays and more poetry - writing at writing.

Growing up, I decided, a long time ago, I wouldn't accept any manmade differences between human beings, differences made at somebody else's insistence or someone else's whim or convenience.

I don't know how much longer I'll be around. I'll probably be writing when the Lord says, 'Maya, Maya Angelou, it's time.'

It's still scary every time I go back to the past. Each morning, my heart catches. When I get there, I remember how the light was, where the draft was coming from, what odors were in the air. When I write, I get all the weeping out.

I learned a long time ago the wisest thing I can do is be on my own side, be an advocate for myself and others like me.

What is a fear of living? It's being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness. The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself - for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don't know what you're here to do, then just do some good.

I long for the time when all human history is taught as one history, because it really is.

I think Clinton, after getting into office and into Washington, was shocked at being bludgeoned. So he spent time trying to be all things to all people - one way guaranteed not to be successful or respected in a lion's den. You can't just play around with all those big cats - you've got to take somebody on.
