Time Quotes

Time is the most valuable asset in this world-- regardless of how rich or poor you are. There is no point in being wealthy if you do not have time to reap the benefits of your hard work.  On the other hand, a healthy poor person with time has excellent earning potential, and the ability to create the life they desire.

The universe provides us equally with 24 hours per day. We should not waste it living someone else's life. Use your time wisely, as it is the most expensive resource. Ever found yourself in a situation in which you are looking back in the past, reflecting on your regrets, mistakes and how much time you have wasted? To avoid the feeling of dissatisfaction, anger or resentment, it is important to live in the present-moment,  use your time work on productive tasks that will be useful and rewarding, do what makes you happy, (not your parents, spouse, or friends), follow your own dreams, and use your time to create the future you want.

Browse through a collection of time quotes and time sayings from philosophers, writers, and other influential people throughout world history sharing their thoughts and advice on time, the importance of time, ways to use your time, success and time and much more.
