The End of June! 

(And, we are half way though the 2012 year).

"You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives." 


"And when is there time to remember, 
to sift, to weigh, to estimate, to total?"
~ Tillie Olsen

"Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day."
~William Shakespeare

"So during those first moments of the day, 
which are yours and yours alone, 
you can circumvent these boundaries 
and concentrate fully on spiritual matters. 
And this gives you the opportunity to plan 
the time management of the entire day."
~ Menachem Mendel Schneerson

"You must have been warned against letting 
the golden hours slip by; 
but some of them are golden only because 
we let them slip by."
~ James M. Barrie

 "Sometimes I feel that life is passing me by, 
not slowly either, 
but with ropes of steam and spark-spattered wheels 
and a hoarse roar of power or terror.  
It's passing, yet I'm the one 
who's doing all the moving."
 ~Martin Amis, Money

"I would I could stand on a busy corner, 
hat in hand, and beg people to throw me 
all their wasted hours."
  ~ Bernard Berenson

"Time is a dressmaker . . . 
specializing in alterations."
~ Faith Baldwin

 "Slow down!  Man in the mirror slow down
You're running too fast to see what life's all about
This world ain't a fire for you to put out
The best times are here and now
So slow down . . . Slow down."

~ Kenny Chesney lyrics
