Time

Module by: Kenneth Leroy Busbee. E-mail the author

Summary: Fortune cookies about time.

  • Time is not measured by a watch, but by moments.
  • Seize from every moment its uniqueness.
  • Do not rush through life, pause and enjoy it.
  • It’s not the amount of time you devote, but what you devote to the time that counts.
  • He who waits to do a great deal of good at once, will never do anything.
  • Avoid a hasty decision.
  • Now is the time to try something new.
  • Time is money.
  • Don’t be hasty; prosperity will soon knock on your door.
  • He who hesitates is probably right.
  • Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional.
  • Caution at first is better than tears later.
  • Do it right the first time.
  • No one can walk backward into the future.
  • A good time to finish up old tasks.
  • Now is the time to resolve all unfinished business.
  • A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Take that step today!
  • You never hesitate to tackle the most difficult problems.
  • A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains.
  • No one knows the story of tomorrow’s dawn.
  • A friend asks only for your time not your money.
  • Bad habits are easier to abandon today than tomorrow.
  • There is a prospect of a thrilling time ahead for you.
  • To one who waits, a moment seems a year.
  • What we love to do we find time to do.
  • A thrilling time is in your immediate future.
  • Patience is its own reward.
  • An ounce of gold cannot buy an ounce of time.
  • You will never regret the present; you live life to its fullest.
