Great Quotations on the Mysteries of Time

The post Great Quotations on the Mysteries of Time appeared first on WhoWhatWhy.

As 2017 slides into 2018, we pause for a moment to ponder this mysterious thing called time. You can’t hold it in your hand. You can’t stop it, slow it down, or speed it up. You can’t see it any more than you can see the wind. But you can see its effects.

Here, we present insights into the elusive nature of time as captured in words and images. (This collection was first published January 1, 2014.)

The Elusive Nature of Time


When told the reason for Daylight Saving time, the old Indian said: “Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket. (Author Unknown Native American)

Perhaps time’s definition of coal is the diamond. (Khalil Gibran)

Satire is tragedy plus time. You give it enough time, the public, the reviewers will allow you to satirize it. Which is rather ridiculous, when you think about it.  (Lenny Bruce)
