Spring Forward ~ Fall Back

A few thoughts about time...

Half our life is spent trying to find
something to do with the time we
have rushed through life trying to save.

~Will Rogers~

If you have time to whine and complain
about something then you have
time to do something about it.

~Anthony J. D'Angelo~

Nothing is a waste of time
if you use the experience wisely.

~Rodin~

Procrastination is the theif of time.

~Joseph Heller~

Dost thou love life?
Then do not squander time,
for time is the stuff that life is made of.

~Benjamin Franklin~


Time is too slow for those who wait,
too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve,
too short for those who rejoice,
but for those who love, time is eternity.

~Henry Van Dyke~

Nothing is as far away
as one minute ago.
~Jim Bishop~

Take care of the moments,
the years will take care of themselves.

~Maria Edgeworth~

Time and tide wait for no man.

~Mark Twain~

I like to do all the talking myself.
It saves time, and prevents arguments.

~Oscar Wilde~


For everything there is a season,
and a time for every matter under Heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant,
and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones,
and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace,
and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.

~Ecclesiastes 3:1-8~

God bless...

Until another time... Pearl

Hey Pearl!
I really enjoyed the time quotes, and scripture...and the photos too! Very inspiring post...I loved it! Oh and By the way...yes girl, I have loved the time, I've gotten to spend in my new "old" rocker too...especially since we have the extra hour of daylight in the evening!
Big Hug,
Queenie~

There's so much about this post that I love! For one thing, it is an important theme for me. I believe timing is everything. I thought my favorite was the valentine with the hour glass till I saw the clock with the mushrooms! Then there was the beautiful pocket watch. Loved all the quotes too. I have collected all kinds of stickers and ephemera and quotes to do a 'Time' paper bag album and just never have gotten it done. You've inspired me to get my stuff out again and do it. Thanks for this very lovely post! Have a beautiful day. Twyla

Holly said...

You find the neatest quotes and pics, Pearl! I like the "bless his heart" one! ☺

I think my mom had a mushroom clock similar to that one that she made in ceramics class!

Hi Pearl, what a thought-filled post. The older I get, the more I realize that health and youth are truly amazing gifts that should be cherished. I was sooo happy to see that you stopped by my blog!

Joy at Cupids Charm said...

Hi Miss Pearl! I try so hard to live my life without a watch!!! Seems that just LOOKING at a clock makes me want to HURRY...even if there is no need. Enjoyed your post today! ~ xoxo Joy

Tiffany said...

Love this post. Especially the "Bless his heart" one, cause I'm southern....and the Valentine clock, too cute!

ksarra said...

Morning Pearl, I've had a great time scrolling through some of your posts that I missed. You are VERY creative, love your cards! I, too, am a big fan of Dr. Seuss. Glad you remembered him. Also, the labels are gorgeous!!!

Michelle said...

Hi Pearl! My, where have I been. I need to cathc up on your posts and I LOVE your new header!!

I love this post. You've said it all with fun pictures and all. :)

About the pin-up..yes things didn't work out I'm afraid. THe poem in my princess post said it all for me. I needed that...and was not able to receive. I wish him all the best but I need to be me.

Heck that sounded like a poem itself! LOL In the back of my mine I knew it would never work but he tried...I do give him that and wish him the best. :)
