If it weren’t for the last minute,
nothing would get done.
Those who stare at the past
have their backs turned to the future.
Let him who would enjoy a good future
waste none of his present.
Don’t let the fear of the time it will take
to accomplish something
stand in the way of your doing it.
The time will pass anyway;
we might just as well put that passing time
to the best possible use.
The best thing about the future
is that it comes only one day a time.
Nothing changes more
constantly than the past;
for the past that influences our lives
does not consist of what happened,
but of what men believe happened.
One problem with gazing
too frequently into the past
is that we may turn around
to find the future has run out on us.
I love deadlines.
I like the whooshing sound
they make as they fly by.
You will never “find” time for anything.
If you want time you must make it.
The time you enjoy wasting
is not wasted time.
Everywhere is walking distance
if you have the time.
Only Robinson Crusoe
had everything done by Friday.
The trouble with being punctual
is that nobody’s there to appreciate it.
I’ve developed a new philosophy…
I only dread one day at a time.
The future influences the present
just as much as the past.
The future is not something we enter.
The future is something we create.
Someday is not a day of the week.
The secret of life
is enjoying the passage of time.
Telling the future by looking at the past
assumes that conditions remain constant.
This is like driving a car
by looking in the rearview mirror.
