It’s About Time April 30, 2014

Joyous

“Time, the spaces of light and dark, had long since lost orderliness.”
― William Faulkner, Light in August

Complex

“There are those of us who learn to live completely in the moment. For such people the Past vanishes and the future loses meaning. There is only the Present, which means that two of the three Aalim are surplus to requirements. And then there are those of us who are trapped in yesterdays, in the memory of a lost love, or a childhood home, or a dreadful crime. And some people live only for a better tomorrow; for them the past ceases to exist”
― Salaman Rushdie

Cautionary

“I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.”
― John Adams
