Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of." John Keats: "As though a rose should shut and be a bud again." Edgar Allen Poe: "Years of love have been forgot in the hatred of a minute.""Keeping time, time, time, In a sort of Runic rhyme, To the tintinnabulation that so musically wells, From the bells, bells, bells." Francis Bacon: "The world's a bubble, and the life of man, less than a span.""Histories make men wise; poets, witty; the mathematics, subtle; natural philosophy, deep; moral, grave; logic and rhetoric, able to contend." William Wordsworth: "Sweet childish days that were as long as twenty days are now." Ralph Waldo Emerson: "Can anybody remember when the times were not hard and money not scarce?""Life is not so short but that there is always time enough for courtesy." Alexander Poe: "For he lives twice who can at once employ, The present well, and even the past enjoy.""'Tis with our judgments as our watches—none go just alike, yet each believes his own." Walt Whitman: "To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle, every cubic inch of space is a miracle."
