Beautiful quotes about wasting time – dealing with the rarest resource: time

Keeping track of time - Timely Review Zeitverschwendung Uhr

It’s a waste of time to do something mediocre.

Madonna, American musician

The wisest are the most annoyed at the loss of time.

Dante Alighieri, Italian poet

If time be of all things the most precious, wasting time must be the greatest prodigality.

Benjamin Franklin, founding father of the United States

Time waste differs from material waste in that there can be no salvage. The easiest of all wastes and the hardest to correct is the waste of time, because wasted time does not litter the floor like wasted material.

Henry Ford, American entrepreneur

It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested. But when it is wasted in heedless luxury and spent on no good activity, we are forced at last by death’s final constraint to realize that it has passed away before we knew it was passing. So it is: we are not given a short life but we make it short, and we are not ill-supplied but wasteful of it… Life is long if you know how to use it.

Lucius A. Seneca, Roman philosopher

Time we take is time that gives us something.

Ernst Ferstl, Austrian writer

Time is not money. But for some, money takes time and for others, time takes money.

Ron Kritzfeld, German aphorist

A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.

Charles R. Darwin, English biologist

Time is the coin of life. Only you can determine how it will be spent.

Carl Sandburg, American poet

You can put things off, but not time.

Benjamin Franklin

There are thieves who are not punished and yet steal the most precious thing: Time.

Napoleon Bonaparte, French general
