The Past, present, and future have been weighing on my shoulders a lot lately. Have I made the right choices in the past few months? If not, can I change things? Would that even make things different/better? Am I wasting my time thinking about things that probably don't matter as much as they seem to right now? I have so many questions...yet no solid answers. All I can do is search for the truth, something that feels tangible, something that holds value, integrity and self assurance...until then...I'm lost.
"Since time is the one immaterial object which we cannot influence--neither speed up nor slow down, add to nor diminish--it is an imponderably valuable gift.”
“Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going to fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.”
"Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. "
---Henry Van Dyke
“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
“You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future”
“Time heals what reason cannot”
For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.
"Events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order the continuous thread of revelation."
"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."
"It's a strange thing, but when you are dreading something, and would give anything to slow down time, it has a disobliging habit of speeding up."
"The time you think you're missing, misses you too."
"An unhurried sense of time is in itself a form of wealth."
"If we take care of the moments, the years will take care of themselves. "
"Regret for wasted time is more wasted time. "
"Never let yesterday use up today."
