“So I am not a broken heart.
I am not the weight I lost or miles or ran and I am not the way I slept on my doorstep under the bare sky in smell of tears and whiskey because my apartment was empty and if I were to be this empty I wanted something solid to sleep on. Like concrete.
I am not this year and I am not your fault.
I am muscles building cells, a little every day, because they broke that day,
but bones are stronger once they heal and I am smiling to the bus driver and replacing my groceries once a week and I am not sitting for hours in the shower anymore.
I am the way a life unfolds and bloom and seasons come and go and I am the way the spring always finds a way to turn even the coldest winter into a field of green and flowers and new life.
I am not your fault.”
Charlotte Eriksson

Vera Nazarian
“The sand in the hourglass runs from one compartment to the other, marking the passage of moments with something constant and tangible.

If you watch the flowing sand, you might see time itself riding the granules.

Contrary to popular opinion, time is not an old white-haired man, but a laughing child.

And time sings.”
Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration

Kamand Kojouri
“My hours are filled with fantasy and indifference.
In day and night dreams, I think of my heaven with you.
All the time in between, I carelessly spend in hell without you.”
Kamand Kojouri

Munia Khan
“You can learn things from a heart so bleeding
When love bargains with deceitful pleading
Hours soar from dawn to dawn splitting your time
Don’t hear melody from a soundless chime”
Munia Khan

Kamand Kojouri
“He tried to measure his day
by tallying the hours on his wrist.
I wiped it off and called him a prisoner.
He placed the hours on a scale
with hours from former days to compare.
I took a hammer and broke it all.
He bent down and picked up the
shards of minutes first
then swept the seconds.
I told him he’d missed a spot;
there were some sparkling specks left.
'What are they?' he asked.
'Those are moments,' I said.
'What are they made of?' he asked.
They are times, I thought, when you win a race
or win a heart.
They are times when you give birth
or lay something, someone to rest.
When you wake up in the morning
with a smile because anything is possible.
When someone compliments the thing
you hate most about yourself.
Times when you are embarrassed.
Times when you are hurtful.
Times when you relish in a hearty meal.
Times when you service others and
are content with a well-spent day.
'What are they made of?' he asked again.
'They are made up of times when we are fully present.'
I picked up one of the specks with the tip
of my finger.
'Do you remember this?' I asked.
'Of course,' he said, 'I was whistling in the kitchen
that morning.'
'Why?' I asked.
'Because of the knowledge
that I was loved.”
Kamand Kojouri

“People who have fully prepared always save time. Albert Einstein was right to teach that if he is given six hours to chop down a tree, he would spend the first four sharpening the axes. When you are done with your action plans, work will be easier!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Munia Khan
“I'm two days away
from day after tomorrow
Counting the hours
to my upcoming sorrow
Suddenly I look
into the eyes of my child
Then all sadness gone
as I smile the way she smiled”
Munia Khan

“Many a time, we live life without having access to the thoughts of how the hours of yesterday were spent. This comes to play because of lack of self-analysis and does not help in any way to create the excellence we claim to pursue.”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Minutes turn into hours 
that add up to days 
amounting to weeks 
that become  months 
melting into years
accumulating for decades
to pile up for centuries
and ultimately form minutes again―
just on a grander, divine scale.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Making Wishes: Quotes, Thoughts, & a Little Poetry for Every Day of the Year

“non si può misurare il tempo in giorni come si misura il denaro in centesimi o in pesos, perché i pesos sono tutti uguali mentre ogni giorno è diverso e forse anche ogni ora.”
Jorge Luis Borges, Brodie's Report

Ansul Noor
“Inconstancy of every second punishes me.
The wind, the rain, the clouds, the days,
I try to grasp the hours but they banish me,
And I remain in the vortex of incongruity.

The lone coyote shrieks,
Startling my soul into wakefulness.
The Cacti bloom and the Wren beckons,
Deepening my mind into dreamlessness.
And the moments spend time with inconstancy,
increasing the ease of uneasiness.

Why this daily pilgrimage of ideas?
When no saint has ever ceased the day!
Still yearning for some magic hour,
Where nothing but permanence dwells.

Alas, only this thought be the only truth,
That certainty in death is constant.

And so, in every second, minute, hour,
our only gain is memory.

Be it bitter or sweet:
it is ours!

Rejoice.”
Ansul Noor, Soul Fire

M.D. Elster
“The hours wear on, while the surreal atmosphere of the asylum does not wear off.”
M.D. Elster, Four Kings

Kamand Kojouri
“All this waiting.
Waiting for the rain to
stop. Waiting in traffic.
Waiting for the bill.
Waiting at the airport
for an old friend.
Waiting to depart.
Then,
there’s the big waiting:
waiting to grow up. Waiting
for love. Waiting to show your
your parents that when you
have kids you’ll be different.
Waiting to retire. Waiting for
death.
Why do we think waiting
is the antithesis of life
when it is almost
all of it?”
Kamand Kojouri

“Two to three hours of studying a night,
Is good medicine for the soul,
I have tried this remedy,
It never grows old”
Charmaine J. Forde
