It’s About Time May 14, 2014

Joyous

“What exactly did people do when they had all the time in the world and could do whatever they liked? (p 153)”
― Sharon Creech, Chasing Redbird

Complex

“Of no distemper, of no blast he died,
But fell like autumn fruit that mellowed long —
Even wondered at, because he dropped no sooner.
Fate seemed to wind him up for fourscore years,
Yet freshly ran he on ten winters more;
Till like a clock worn out with eating time,
The wheels of weary life at last stood still.”
― John Dryden, Oedipus: A Tragedy

Cautionary

“Because time does the job, dynamite can’t touch. (Samuel Hamilton)”
― John Steinbeck, East of Eden
