Have you ever lived for yourself
111 timeless quotes about time and how you deal with it calmly
by Tim Reichel
The right way of dealing with time is one of the most valuable skills there is. The only problem is: time doesn't know what it wants. Sometimes it stretches out, sometimes it just races past us. Time feels different for everyone - sometimes like this, sometimes like that.
What we miss most when dealing with time is calm: How can you use your time sensibly? How do you survive difficult times? How do you avoid unnecessary pressure?
But serenity can be learned. And so that you don't have to start from scratch, you can learn a few tips and tricks from smart people who have already thought carefully about time.
That's why I have 111 of the best here Quotes about time collected and written down for you. Why quotes? Because many quotes have something powerful and inspiring about them. They can make you think, open your horizons and change your point of view.
Of course, only if you get involved. Otherwise it will be the babbling of old people.
