“I’m not a very good sleeper. But you know what? I’m willing to put in a few extra hours every day to get better. That’s just the kind of hard worker I am.”
Jarod Kintz, Whenever You're Gone, I'm Here For You

Charlotte Eriksson
“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

“I've never really understood why people sleep. Wasting a third of your life and becoming vulnerable for almost 8 hours every night. Doesn't seem very appealing to me.”

Jarod Kintz
“Mondays are mundane, like Tuesdays minus 24 hours.
Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible

J.A. Redmerski
“I’m not a follower. I never have been. But I’ll definitely become someone I’m not for a few hours if it’ll make me blend in rather than make me a blatant eye sore and draw attention.”
J.A. Redmerski, The Edge of Never

Dave Matthes
“There's folly in her stride
that's the rumor
justified by lies
I've seen her up close
beneath the sheets
and sometime during the summer
she was mine for a few sweet months in the fall
and parts of December

((( To get to the heart of this unsolvable equation, one must first become familiar with the physical, emotional, and immaterial makeup as to what constitutes both war and peace. )))

I found her looking through a window
the same window I'd been looking through
She smiled and her eyes never faltered
this folly was a crime

((( The very essence of war is destructive, though throughout the years utilized as a means of creating peace, such an equation might seem paradoxical to the untrained eye. Some might say using evil to defeat evil is counterproductive, and gives more meaning to the word “futile”. Others, like Edmund Burke, would argue that “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men and women to do nothing.” )))

She had an identity I could identify with
something my fingertips could caress in the night

((( There is such a limitless landscape within the mind, no two minds are alike. And this is why as a race we will forever be at war with each other.
What constitutes peace is in the mind of the beholder. )))

Have you heard the argument?
This displacement of men and women
and women and men
the minds we all have
the beliefs we all share
Slipping inside of us
thoughts and religions and bodies
all bare

((( “Without darkness, there can be no light,”
he once said. To demonstrate this theory, during one of his seminars he held a piece of white chalk and drew a line down the center of a blackboard. Explaining that without the blackness of the board, the white line would be invisible. )))

When she left
she kissed with eyes open
I knew this because I'd done the same
Sometimes we saw eye to eye like that
Very briefly,
she considered an apotheosis
a synthesis
a rendering of her folly
into solidarity

((( To believe that a world-wide lay down of arms is possible, however, is the delusion of the pacifist; the dream of the optimist; and the joke of the realist. Diplomacy only goes so far, and in spite of our efforts to fight with words- there are times when drawing swords of a very different nature are surely called for. )))

Experiencing the subsequent sunrise
inhaling and drinking
breaking mirrors and regurgitating
just to start again
all in all
I was just another gash in the bark

((( Plato once said:
“Only the dead have seen the end of war.” Perhaps the death of us all is called for in this time of emotional desperation. War is a product of the mind; only with the death of such will come the end of the bloodshed. Though this may be a fairly realistic view of such an issue, perhaps there is an optimistic outlook on the horizon. Not every sword is double edged, but every coin is double sided. )))

Leaving town and throwing shit out the window
drinking boroughs and borrowing spare change
I glimpsed the rear view mirror
stole a glimpse really
I've believed in looking back for a while
it helps to have one last view
a reminder in case one ever decides to rebel
in the event the self regresses
and makes the declaration of devastation
once more

((( Thus, if we wish to eliminate the threat of war today- complete human annihilation may be called for. )))”
Dave Matthes, Wanderlust and the Whiskey Bottle Parallel: Poems and Stories

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

Jarod Kintz
“I keep odd hours. I keep them stuffed under my mattress.”
Jarod Kintz, At even one penny, this book would be overpriced. In fact, free is too expensive, because you'd still waste time by reading it.

Israelmore Ayivor
“Yesterday was the last day on the calender of the past. Tomorrow will be the first day on the calender of the future. Today is both the first and the last day of the present. Use it well.”
Israelmore Ayivor

“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

Enock Maregesi
“Siku ya kuzaliwa ni siku ya kwanza ya safari nyingine ya siku 365, masaa 5, dakika 48, sekunde 46 na maili milioni 600 kulizunguka jua. Safiri salama.”
Enock Maregesi

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

Israelmore Ayivor
“Keep your handkerchief neat, and then you can be trusted with a bigger clothe. If you can’t manage few minutes, you are likely to waste 24 hours no matter how many times it’s given to you!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

“Unlike clocks, hours have no reverse motion..”

Israelmore Ayivor
“Your decisions in hours of failure would determine whether you will forever be where you are or you will move out of that situation.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Dream Big!: See Your Bigger Picture!

Israelmore Ayivor
“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

Israelmore Ayivor
“Create time for yourself... There are 24 hours in a day... Outline the number to spend on your dreams every day!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

Israelmore Ayivor
“Plan the number of hours each day you’ll spend on your dreams, the kind of people you’ll love to connect with, the amount of capital you’ll want to invest and the sources of help you are required to get. Make a plan.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Shaping the dream

Aniruddha Sastikar
“Those minute seconds, flip minutes into hours; hours turn into days, weeks, years, and all these happen in a fraction of a life; placed meagerly, amid this endless Universe.”
Aniruddha Sastikar

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

Israelmore Ayivor
“A little time can help you to make a great impact, therefore you should never despise few minutes. Do it till it's done and done well!”
Israelmore Ayivor, The Great Hand Book of Quotes

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!

Ansul Noor, Soul Fire

Victoria Kahler
“The hours went by quickly, like the proverbial sands slipping down, down, down the center of the hourglass.”
Victoria Kahler, Luisa Across the Bay

“Tick. Tick. Tick.
This is the sound of your life running out.”
