Quotes of the Day for 2 July 2000 – Time

When you get through today, half of the year will be over. (If this weren't a leap year, it would be half over at noon.) Today's quotes are on the passing of Time.

Van's signature

The quotes:

Many of us spend half our time wishing for things we could have if we didn't spend half our time wishing.
     - Alexander Woollcott

Time is a file that wears and makes no noise.
     - English proverb

Times change and men deteriorate.
     - Gesta Romanorum

There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
     - Carl Jung
