Quotes and Sayings about Time

How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart you begin to understand... there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend. Some hurts that go too deep, that have taken hold.
But time is life itself, and life resides in the human heart.

I give you now a memory that has been forgotten, hidden in the dreamy haze that lies behind us."
I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment because they'll never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived.
Time moves in one direction, memory in another.
William Gibson - Distrust That Particular Flavor

Sheik in The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time
Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me.

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
