I have been thinking about time more and more as I age and as I watch my parents age.

Looking up quotes about time, there were too many great ones to share them all. As Virgil once wrote, “Time passes irrevocably.” Golda Meir said, “I must govern the clock, not be governed by it.”

We waste time. We race the clock. We say that time flies or that time heals all wounds.

Right now, at this moment in time, what do you think about time? Does it feel like time is moving in slow-motion in your life? Does it feel sped up and chaotic?

Looking back on your life, have you used your time well? What about your future? How do you see time in relation to what lies before you?”These are the times that try men’s souls,” declared Thomas Paine while Frodo of the Shire said, “I wish it need not have happened in my time.”

What do you think about these times and the times you have witnessed? What are you happy to have seen happen in your time? What are you sad you might miss? What do you hope to see?

Tell me your thoughts about time, and I’ll leave you with some lighter words from the always-wise Dr. Seuss about time:

How did it get so late so soon?
It’s night before it’s afternoon.
December is here before it’s June.
My goodness how the time has flewn.
How did it get so late so soon?
