A Brief Future of Time

July 6, 2009

There are some things that can only be learned over time.  Such as, well, learning about time iteslf!  That’s why I have appealed to the geniuses of our human race for intellectual quotes on time.

They are all short quotes, because I have a short attention span.  I have selected my top 9 in preparation for the Vancouver Time Auction, happening at 6pm on July 9th, at the UBC Student Union Building (Facebook Event).

Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.  ~Dion Boucicault
Time is like the wind, it lifts the light and leaves the heavy.  ~Doménico Cieri Estrada
How long a minute is, depends on which side of the bathroom door you’re on.  ~Zall’s Second Law
The time you think you’re missing, misses you too.  ~Ymber Delecto
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.  ~Drew Sirtors
Time is what we want most, but… what we use worst.  ~Willaim Penn
Time is a great teacher, but unfortunately it kills all its pupils.  ~Louis Hector Berlioz
What may be done at any time will be done at no time.  ~Scottish Proverb
Time is money.  ~Benjamin Franklin
