Time Capsules

We seem to have a compulsion these days to bury time capsules in order to give those people living in the next century or so some idea of what we are like.

Alfred Hitchcock

Bookish Homeless People

I spent a lot of time at the New York Public Library, the main branch. I was one of those people. If you ever spend a good amount of time there, you realize there are people who spend the entire day there. They’re bookish homeless people.

People spend to much time finding other people to blame …..

People spend too much time finding other people to blame, too much energy finding excuses for not being what they are capable of being, and not enough energy putting themselves on the line, growing out of the past, and getting on with their lives.

-J. Michael Straczynski, American Producer – 1954 –

Bob Dylan ~ Times

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is rapidly fadin’
And the first one now will later be last
For the times they are a-changin’
~Bob Dylan, The Times They Are A-Changin

Just Thinking

There’s the saying(s) “time goes by to fast,’ “where did the time go?’ “time sure flies when you are having fun,” etc, etc.

If you ever want time to go by slow, pull up a chair, sit, relax and give the clock your undivided attention, and witness time passing by.

Call it meditation by clock.


“Most of us spend too much time on what is urgent and not enough time on what is important.”

–Stephen Covey


“No man ever achieved worth-while success who did not, at one time or other, find himself with at least one foot hanging well over the brink of failure.”

Napoleon Hill


“Time flies over us, but leaves its shadow behind.”

–Nathaniel Hawthorne


Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.

John Lennon

Brainy Quote

A sign of things to come …

A sign of things to come.
After a morning rain, now it is overcast.
Looking out the window, A pondering Mind sees the various trees, slowly changing color.
I guess it’s goodby to Summer and hello to Autumn, which arrives in the Eastern Time Zone at 4:44 pm.
Where does the time go?


Time is the longest distance between two places.

– Tennessee Williams

Coffee leads men to trifle away…

Coffee leads men to trifle away their time, scald their chops, and spend their money, all for a little base, black, thick, nasty, bitter, stinking nauseous puddle of water.

– The Women’s Petition Against Coffee, 1674
