Man that isbornof a womanhath but a short timeto live, and is full of misery.
Days I enjoy are days when nothing happens,When I have no engagements written on my block,When no one comes to disturb my inward peace,When no one comes to take me away from myselfAnd turn me into a patchwork, a jig-saw puzzle,A broken mirror that once gave a whole reflection,Being so contrived that it takes too long a timeto get myself back to myself when they have gone.vita sackville-west
I was promised on a timeto have reason for my rhyme;From that time unto this season,I received nor rhyme nor reason.Edmund Spenser
Multis terribilis timeto multos.
Ihave oftenwished Ihad timeto cultivatemodesty? But I am too busy thinking about myself.
Nobody sees a flower really. It is so small we haven't time and to see takes time like to have a friend takes time? So I said to myself I'll paint what I see, what the flower is to me, but I'll paint it big and they will be surprised into taking time to look at it. I will make even busy New Yorkers take time to see what I see of flowers.Georgia O'Keeffe
