1. “Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can´t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.”

(Harvey MacKay)

2. “Take care in your minutes, and the hours will take care of themselves.”

(Lord Chesterfield)

3. “The surest way to be late is to have plenty of time.”

(Leo Kennedy)

4. “You may as well borrow a person’s money as his time.”                                  

(Horace Mann)

5. “If it weren’t for the last minute, a lot of things wouldn’t get done.”

(Michael S. Traylor)

6. “Those who make the worst of their time most complain about its shortness.”

(La Bruyere)

7. “To do two things at once is to do neither.”

(Publilius Syrus)

8. “Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.”

(H. Jackson Brown)

9. “One worthwhile task carried to a successful conclusion is worth half-a-hundred half-finished tasks.“

(Malcolm S. Forbes)

10. “Don’t be fooled by the calendar. There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week’s value out of a year while another man gets a full year’s value out of a week.”

(Charles Richards)

      “Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can’t buy more hours. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.” –Denis Waitley
