Our Time Quotes

Our Time Quotes by Thomas Carlyle, Malcolm X, Ashley Montagu, Christopher Bond, Billy Graham, Pope Paul VI and many others.

The true epic of our times is not “Arm’s and the Man,” but “Tools and the Man”–an infinitely wider kind of epic.
Thomas Carlyle
We are not anti-white. But we don’t have time for the white man. The white man is on top already, the white man is the boss already… he has first-class citizenship already. So you are wasting your time talking to the white man. We are working on our own people.
Malcolm X
Love, for too many men in our time, consists of sleeping with a seductive woman, one who is properly endowed with the right distribution of curves and conveniences and one upon whom a permanent lien has been acquired through the institution of marriage.
Ashley Montagu
More time on paperwork means less time spent with students or preparing lessons for students. It is as simple as that. The numerous reforms in the bill will go a long way to free our time of special educators.
Christopher Bond
The great question of our time is, ‘Will we be motivated by materialistic philosophy or by spiritual power?’
Billy Graham
Man’s genius has with God’s help produced marvelous technical inventions from creation, especially in our times. The Church, our mother, is particularly interested in those which directly touch man’s spirit and which have opened up new avenues of easy communication of all kinds of news, of ideas and orientations.
Pope Paul VI
The great escape of our times is escape from personal responsibility for the consequences of one’s own behavior.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Our time is so specialised that we have people who know more and more or less and less.
Alvar Aalto
History, well taught, is the demythologising of the past… Take any important issue of our time – Northern Ireland, Nuclear Disarmament, Race, The Welfare State, South Africa – and it becomes impossible to seriously confront any of them without understanding their historical background.
Alan Bullock
Nonviolence is the answer for the questions of our time. Love will conquer evil every time.
James F. Twyman
When we put God first, all other things fall into their proper place or drop out of our lives. Our love of the Lord will govern the claims for our affection, the demands on our time, the interests we pursue, and the order of our priorities.
Ezra Taft Benson
It is precisely the despair of our times that convinces me that a renaissance is right around the corner.
Matthew Fox
We have not wings we cannot soar; but, we have feet to scale and climb, by slow degrees, by more and more, the cloudy summits of our time.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Let us pray that the great historic tragedy of our time may not have been enacted without instructing our whole beloved country through terror and pity; and may fulfillment verify in the end those expectations which kindle the bards of Progress and Humanity.
Herman Melville
So are we going to continue glaring angrily at each other while we pose in our tough stances? Or use our time to work out a plan that hopefully doesn’t end with our mutual deaths? (Acheron)
Sherrilyn Kenyon
We can and should place special emphasis on developing in our youth constructive incentives — a love of science, engineering, and math, so that they will want to take advanced scientific courses and thereby help meet the needs of our times.
Ezra Taft Benson
Too much of our time is spent trying to chart God on a grid, and too little is spent allowing our hearts to feel awe. By reducing Christian spirituality to formula, we deprive our hearts of wonder.
Donald Miller
People invent new machines and improve existing ones almost unconsciously, rather as a Somnambulist will go walking in his sleep. The interesting puzzle in our times is that we so willingly sleepwalk through the process of reconstituting the conditions of human existence.
George Orwell
In life, one is entitled to a side dish of either coleslaw or potato salad, and the choice must be made in terror, with the knowledge that not only is our time on earth limited but most kitchens close at ten.
Woody Allen
The costliest myth of our time has been the myth of the Communist monolith.

David Banner
Modern buildings of our time are so huge that one must group them. Often the space between these buildings is as important as the buildings themselves.

Barack Obama
The right of every American to first-class citizenship is the most important issue of our time.
Jackie Robinson
As we approach each of the great social challenges of our time we must acknowledge that old thinking will not provide the new solutions we need. These solutions will be uncomfortable, hard to sell and risky to execute. But the cost of not doing so is even greater.
Simon Mainwaring
I let my people know that I’d love to work with Ryan Coogler one day because I thought he’s just one of those truly auteur directors of our time. And I was just like, ‘I want to work with a guy like that.’ I think he has such a great understanding and distinct voice of his own.
Winston Duke
After decades of declining influence on the affairs of the world, there is once again a widespread consideration of spritual principles as an antidote to the pain of our times.
Marianne Williamson
The greater part of our best years has been passed for our generation in these two great worldconvulsions. All will be changed after this war, which spends in one month more than nations earned before in yearsthere is no more security in our time than in those of the Reformation or the fall of Rome.
Stefan Zweig
A second characteristic of our time is the prevalence of nationalism. This is still spreading, affecting new communities, more peripheral regions and so-called backward peoples.
Emily Greene Balch
The atmosphere of our time is fast being cleared of the fumes and deadly gases that arose during the carboniferous age of theology.
John Burroughs
I’ve always thought stand-up comedians were the oral storytellers of our time, because they know rhetoric, they know delivery, they know timing, they know all of these things that you can only learn by telling a story out loud and interacting with an audience.
Chuck Palahniuk
Well, we spend an awful lot of our time working and doing experiments. It’s very busy up on the shuttle.

Character is the result of two things: mental attitude and the way we spend our time.
Elbert Hubbard
The supreme reality of our time is the vulnerability of our planet.

Those of us who work in the arts know that depiction is not endorsement. If it was, no artist would be able to paint inhumane practices, no author could write about them, and no filmmaker could delve into the thorny subjects of our time.
Kathryn Bigelow
We spend our time sending messages to each other, talking and trying to listen at the same time, exchanging information. This seems to be our most urgent biological function; it is what we do with our lives.
Lewis Thomas
Too many pupils at schools in the U.K. want to have careers as footballers or TV hosts, or models, because that’s what they’re constantly exposed to as the heroes of our time.
Sugata Mitra
Be warned against all ‘good’ advice because ‘good’ advice is necessarily ‘safe’ advice, and though it will undoubtedly follow a sane pattern, it will very likely lead one into total sterility–one of the crushing problems of our time.
Jules Feiffer
If it feels right to recycle our waste or purchase solar panels for our house or rescue an animal or adopt a child or stop someone from hurting another or donate our time, money, or goods to charity, then do it.
Bryan Kest
If we ever hope to rid the world of the political AIDS of our time, terrorism, the rule must be clear: One does not deal with terrorists; one does not bargain with terrorists; one kills terrorists.
Meir Kahane
As a little boy, my mom would bake with me on the weekends – that was our time together.
Zac Posen
Time goes, you say? Ah, no! alas, time stays, we go.
Henry Austin Dobson
When my daughter Dixie gets out of school, I take her to ballet, soccer, or karate. Or if it’s a free afternoon, we might bake together. I love our time together. There is nothing more important in my life than making her happy.
Lily Aldridge
The Discovery was the most intricate, complex machine man has ever built. It’s a testament to our time.
John Glenn
‘Get along, go along’ is not an inspirational philosophy, and only God knows how much moral cowardice it has covered up over the years. Serve your time, collect your chits, and cash ’em in for your home state? No, I’d say we could ask for more than that from our senators.
Molly Ivins
Guantanamo has become the gulag of our time.
Irene Khan
The real story of our times is seldom told in the horse-puckey-filled memoirs of dopey, self-serving presidents or generals, but in the outrageous, demented lives of guys like Lenny Bruce, Giordano Bruno, Scott Fitzgerald – and Paul Krassner. The burrs under society’s saddle. The pains in the ass.
Harlan Ellison
Yeats was the greatest poet of our times . . . certainly the greatest in this language, and so far as I am able to judge, in any language.
T. S. Eliot
In many ways the culmination of [Judith Butler’s] thinking to date, ‘Parting Ways’ will confirm Butler’s place at the forefront of debate about one of the most anguished political crises of our times.
Jacqueline Rose
It is our time to unleash the power of New York’s women.
Kathy Hochul
My mother’s an artist. My father was an artist and so I assumed that was normal growing up in art and the art world and spending our time around the world seeing art, experiencing things. It was great.
Bran Ferren
The big question of our time is not Can it be built? but Should it be built? This places us in an unusual historical moment: our future prosperity depends on the quality of our collective imaginations.
Eric Ries
I consider the modernization of the Middle East the central challenge of our time. This region behaves as if it were disturbed, if you’ll excuse the clinical expression.
Zalmay Khalilzad
When I was a kid, I wanted to emulate Mel Blanc, who is arguably one of the most legendary voiceover recording artists of our time. I used to watch all the cartoons where he would voice Daffy, Elmer Fudd and Porky the Pig. I knew one day I wanted to do that.
Jesse McCartney
I’m convinced the true history of our time isn’t what we read in newspapers or books…True history is almost invisible. It flows like an underground spring. It takes place in the shadows, and in silence, George. And only a chosen few know what that history is.
FГ©lix J. Palma
Those of us who have been blessed with worldly success have an even greater responsibility to make an impact with our time, talents, and resources.
John Wooden
War in our time is always indiscriminate, a war against innocents, a war against children.
Howard Zinn
Treason implies responsibility for something, control over something, influence upon something, knowledge of something. Treason in our time is a proof of genius. Why, I want to know, are not traitors decorated?
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
The preaching of the faith has lost nothing of its relevance in our times. The Church has a sacred duty to proclaim it without any whittling-down, just as Christ revealed it, and no consideration of time or circumstance can lessen the strictness of this obligation.
Pope Pius XII
I have nothing nice to say about Chris Pratt, of course. He’s probably the greatest hero of our time in real life, honestly.
Bryce Dallas Howard

Toni Duggan
A cancer diagnosis is a wakeup call that our time is limited.
Leana S. Wen
All good art is in the nature of a letter written to amuse a sick friend. Too much art, particularly in our time, is only a letter written to oneself.
W. H. Auden
One of the most fashionable notions of our times is that social problems like poverty and oppression breed wars. Most wars, however, are started by well-fed people with the time on their hands to dream up half-baked ideologies or grandiose ambitions, and to nurse real or imagined grievances.
Thomas Sowell
For me, movies and television are interesting because they are the dominant storytelling form of our time. My first love will always be fiction, and especially novels, but I’m a writer… I write poetry and essays and criticism and I’d love to write a whole play, and sometimes I even write scripts.
Jess Walter
I’d realize it’s not worth our time to worry. You do your best, and God will put the right people in your path.
Taya Kyle
Rather than being confined to a separate dimension, martial arts should be an extension of our way of living, of our philosophies, of the way we educate our children, of the job we devote so much of our time to, of the relationships we cultivate, and of the choices we make every day.
Daniele Bolelli
It is the classic fallacy of our time that a moron run through a university and decorated with a Ph.D. will thereby cease to be a moron.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
There are people with a lot of prejudice, a lot of fear of the unknown. They think that immigration is a danger, when really it is a solution. This is an interesting issue, because it will be a central question of our time.
Mario Vargas Llosa
Time is the one thing we possess. Our success depends upon the use of our time, and its by-product, the odd moment.
Arthur Brisbane
An unbelieved truth can hurt a man much more than a lie. It takes great courage to back truth unacceptable to our times. There’s a punishment for it, and it’s usually crucifixion.
John Steinbeck
This is our time. Until that time stops – for one of us, for both – it is our time. Now. Will you waste it, because you are afraid?
Diana Gabaldon
There’s great disparity between who goes to college and who goes to jail. Who lives long and who dies prematurely, is the defining issue of our time. And I submit to you, there’s a significant race dimension, it is basically class-driven.
Jesse Jackson
When our time’s up, it’s up. All the money in the world won’t buy you one more day.
Ted Turner
I’m into the lyrical side of rap. I listen to some old Eminem songs and think, ‘Wow, he’s a genius.’ He’s one of the greatest poets of our time. Even when he’s out of control, like on ‘Cold Wind Blows,’ it’s incredible.
Phoebe Tonkin
To call the coronavirus a great equaliser turned out to be the greatest falsification of our time.
Barkha Dutt
We all have 1,440 minutes each day to accomplish everything on our schedule. We are accountable for prioritizing the decisions we make with our time.

Our time is fixed, and all our days are number’d;
How long, how short, we know not:—this we know,
Duty requires we calmly wait the summons,
Nor dare to stir till Heaven shall give permission.
Robert Blair
My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor. I believe it is peace for our time… Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.
Neville Chamberlain
There are almost too many possibilities. Photography is in direct proportion with our time: multiple, faster, instant. Because it is so easy, it will be more difficult.
Ernst Haas
I invite all to trust in the merits and in the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ. Through His atoning sacrifice, we can gain the courage to win all the wars of our time, even in the midst of our difficulties, challenges, and temptations. Let us trust in His #‎ love and power to save.
Ulisses Soares
Our acts of kindness we reserve for our friends, our bounties for our dependants, our riches for our children and relations, our praises for those who appear worthy of them, our time we give all to the world; we expose it, I may say, a prey to all mankind.
Jean Baptiste Massillon
We must improve our time; time goes with rapid foot.
My bottom line is that I think Ridley Scott is one of the greatest visual artists of our time and I feel very privileged that he wants to work with me, so I go with that flow.
Russell Crowe
I see in industrialization the central problem of building in our time. If we succeed in carrying out this industrialization, the social, economic, technical, and also artistic problems will be readily solved.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our Democracy; Tonight is your answer.
Barack Obama
The decline of the aperitif may well be one of the most depressing phenomena of our time.
Luis Bunuel
Many find ourselves in this strange consumerist entertainment bubble where celebrities have become the golden cows of our time that we love to worship and destroy.
Some of the greatest social reformers of our time were wealthy.
Jerry Rubin
I’ve never been what they call a ‘pure gallerist.’ I find that somewhat pretentious, honestly – I’m an art dealer. I like to show great artists of our time, but I also like dealing. And I think they reinforce each other.
Larry Gagosian
By the time I received my doctorate in American studies in 1957, I was in the twisted grip of a disease of our times in which the sufferer experiences an overwhelming urge to join the ‘real world.’ So I started working for newspapers.
Tom Wolfe
Canada is our country. It belongs to us and we belong to it. Let us join together, in our time, and make history once again.
Paul Martin
If contemporary artists sincerely seek to be original, unique, and new, they should begin by disregarding the notions of originality, individuality, and innovation: they are the cliches of our time.
Octavio Paz
It is our task in our time and in our generation, to hand down undiminished to those who come after us, as was handed down to us by those who went before, the natural wealth and beauty which is ours.
John F. Kennedy
The three most disastrous inventions of our time have been the birth control pill, the camera and nuclear weaponry. The first offers sex in terms of sterility, the second reality in terms of fantasy, and the third security in terms of destruction.
Malcolm Muggeridge
In our time the search for extraterrestrial life will eventually change our laws, our religions, our philosophies, our arts, our recreations, as well as our sciences. Space, the mirror, waits for life to come look for itself there.
Ray Bradbury
We can’t really waste our time; we have to see that we are all in the same boat and that different religious traditions point in the same direction, and now let’s get moving together, doing something for peace.
David Steindl-Rast
I admired and valued Robin as a colleague and friend and as one of the greatest parliamentarians of our time. His wife Gaynor and his two sons are in our thoughts and prayers.
Gordon Brown
I have always wanted to work with Rekha – she is one of the most gorgeous actresses of our time.
Jackie Shroff
If we fail to give our time with those we love, one day we will live to regret it.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
We spend most of our time and energy in a kind of horizontal thinking. We move along the surface of things….but, there are times when we must stop. We sit still. We lose ourselves in a pile of leaves or in its memory. We listen, and breezes from a whole other world begin to whisper.
James Carroll
In our time no one has the conception of what is great. It is up to me to show them.
Napoleon Bonaparte
Do we really want the FCC to conduct investigations and issue warnings to radio talk show hosts nationwide who simply discuss the important issues of our time? The Constitution says ‘freedom of speech,’ not ‘freedom of government-approved fair speech in rationed amounts.’
Tim Walberg
…in our time art is encrusted with a noisy, opaque, logorrhea of theory that prevents a work from coming into direct, media free, non-interpreted contact with its viewer (its reader, its listener)
Milan Kundera
Most of the great businesses of our time have experimented. Like Google.
Evan Williams
It’s true: lives do drift apart for no obvious reason. We’re all busy people,we can’t spend our time simply trying to stay in touch. The test of a friendship is if it can weather these inevitable gaps.
William Boyd
The culture of France is unique because it’s a culture that has a high priority on the arts, more than any other place in the world in our time since Greece. So as a practicing artist, if you will, this is home ground. They love us, so music, literature, art continues to be the center.
Frank Gehry
To call Clive Barker a ‘horror novelist’ would be like calling the Beatles a ‘garage band’… He is the great imaginer of our time. He knows not only our greatest fears, but also what delights us, what turns us on, and what is truly holy in the world. Haunting, bizarre, beautiful.
Quentin Tarantino
Dr. Alex Loyd has the defining healing technology in the world today – It (The Healing Code) will revolutionize health… It is the easiest way to get well, and stay well, fast… Dr. Loyd may very well be the Albert Schweitzer of our time.
Mark Victor Hansen
Anything that is wasted effort represents wasted time. The best management of our time thus becomes linked inseparably with the best utilization of our efforts.
Theodore Wilhelm Engstrom
In our time, what is at issue is the very nature of man, the image we have of his limits and possibilities as a man. History is not yet done with its exploration of the limits and meanings of human nature.
C. Wright Mills
We chose more freedom instead of more government. We chose the principles of our founding to solve the challenges of our time. We chose a special man to lead us in a special time. We chose Mitt Romney to lead our nation.
Marco Rubio
We have spent our time in government fixing the economy.
Enda Kenny
When you think about it in the big scheme of things our time together is like a dash of spice in a big cosmic soup – important for richness of flavor but still not quite the main ingredient. The past is over. It can’t and shouldn’t be reclaimed. All we ever have is now anyway.
Alyson Noel
I remember Arsene Wenger very well from our time in Japan. I like the way his teams play, with an offensive mentality – it is a philosophy I share. I think he gets the best out of the players he has, and this is the key to his success.
Professional comedians, surprisingly, have a lack of humor. They’re insensitive to the insanity of our times.
Mort Sahl
William Packard surely must be one of the great editors of our time.
James Dickey
Let us say “Yes” to life and not death. Let us say “Yes” to freedom and not enslavement to the many idols of our time. In a word, let us say “Yes” to the God who is love, life and freedom, and who never disappoints.
Pope Francis
We will not have any more crashes in our time.
John Maynard Keynes
I’ll write down and catalogue all the different devices that are Americana to me, and I try to have a historic depth and breadth and also the things that we do in our time, the type of vamps and chants, things that are available to us.
Wynton Marsalis
There is a real, living unity in our time, as in any other, but it lies submerged under a superficial hubbub of sensation.
Marshall McLuhan
Perhaps the efforts of the true poets, founders, religions, literatures, all ages, have been, and ever will be, our time and times to come, essentially the same – to bring people back from their present strayings and sickly abstractions, to the costless, average, divine, original concrete.
Walt Whitman
It’s every woman’s tragedy, that, after a certain age, she looks like a female impersonator. Mind you, we’ve known some lovely female impersonators, in our time.
Angela Carter
Morning Glory’s introduction to the magical ways of the Goddess, manifest in our time, has enlarged my understanding of Pagan ways, enriching my spirit and imagination.
Elinor Gadon
Violence against women and lack of intervention and man’s inhumanity to man and this kind of atrocities are going on. These are big issues of our times, we must speak about them, we must learn how to better understand how these things happen so we can address them.
Angelina Jolie
In the same way that slavery was a moral challenge for the 19th century and totalitarianism was a challenge for the 20th century, the challenge that women and girls face around the world is the moral challenge of our time.
Sheryl WuDunn
The more we study the major problems of our time, the more we come to realise that they cannot be understood in isolation. They are systemic problems, which means that they are interconnected and interdependent.
Fritjof Capra
I traveled with then-Senator Obama to Israel in 2008. I will never forget our time in the holy city of Jerusalem and following behind him as he approached the Western Wall – and even in the dark hours of that very early morning, it was a place bustling with energy afforded by one’s faith.
Denis McDonough
During our time, we used to go to school at the age of six.
P. T. Usha
We all, as individuals, can and should act compassionately and charitably. We can volunteer our time, energy, and dollars to help the underprivileged. We can feed the hungry, house the homeless. Most of us feel a moral and ethical responsibility to do so – to ‘do unto others.’
Stephen Moore
Foucault is the Cagliostro of our time.
Camille Paglia
All War Departments are now Defense Departments. This is all part of the doubletalk of our time. The aggressor is always on the other side.
George Wald
The great myth of our times is that technology is communication.
Libby Larsen
Whether things turn out for the better depends on what we do. We ought not spend our time masterminding the future, but recognize our marching orders: to do the best we can for history and the planet.
Huston Smith
There are, above all, times in which the human reality, always mobile, accelerates, and bursts into vertiginous speeds. Our time is such a one, for it is made of descent and fall.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
We tend to think of the problems of globalization and cultural identity as peculiar to our times. In fact they are rooted in ancient problems of civic belonging.
Mark Kingwell
We must wake up to the insane reality of our time. We are all irresponsible, unless we demand from the responsible decision makers that modern armaments must no longer be made available to people whose former battle axes and swords our ancestors condemned.
Thor Heyerdahl
Climate change is the central environmental ill of our time. We have an obligation to protect our children from the dangers of this widening scourge, and we aren’t yet doing enough about it.
Frances Beinecke
[On the ancient Venus figurines:] If the central religious figure was a woman giving birth and not, as in our time, a man dying on a cross, it would not be unreasonable to infer that life and the love of life – rather than death and the fear of death – were dominant in society as well as art.
Riane Eisler
Measured against eternity, our time on earth is just a blink of an eye, but the consequences of it will last forever.

Lawrence Summers
We humans are self-absorbed by nature, and spend most of our time focusing inwardly on our emotions, on our wounds, on our fantasies.
Robert Greene
The most important investment of our time is in our people and in our youth.
Nouman Ali Khan
I think the more stressful our times get, the more we look for fantasy escapes.
Jeri Ryan
Civilization in our time is driven by materialism and troubled by pollution, over-population, corruption, and violence. National parks can hardly be uncoupled from the society around them, but that only makes it more important to protect them and keep them whole and pure.
Michael Frome
There is no significant example in history, before our time, of a society successfully maintaining moral life without the aid of religion.
Will Durant
It is important to remember that life is not a dress rehearsal and that none of us should waste our time on doing things that don’t spark fires within us. My golden rule for business and life is: We should all enjoy what we do and do what we enjoy.
Richard Branson
Nearly every moment of every day we have the opportunity to give something to someone else—our time, our love, our resources. I have always found more joy in giving when I did not expect anything in return.
S. Truett Cathy
The Darwinian adaptive trait of our time is the ability to figure out when we are being lied to on television.
Dick Morris
I believe the best poetry of our times is growing too artistic; the study is too visible. If freedom and naturalness are lost out of poetry, everything worth having is lost.
Lucy Larcom
The speed with which modern society has adapted to accommodate the world’s vast spectrum of gender and sexual identities may be the most important cultural metamorphosis of our time.
Jenna Wortham
I believe that summer is our time, a time for the people, and that no politician should be allowed to speak to us during the summer. They can start talking again after Labor Day.
Lewis Black
We must understand the motives and forces of our time and analyze their structure from three points of view: the material, the functional, and the spiritual. We must make clear in what respects our epoch differs from others and in what respects it is similar.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
It seems that boredom is one of the greatest discoveries of our time. If so, there’s no question but that he must be considered a pioneer.
Luchino Visconti
They who know how to employ opportunities will often find that they can create them; and what we can achieve depends less on the amount of time we possess than on the use we make of our time.
John Stuart Mill
The wisdom of all religions has to be respected. The discoveries of science are also essential for our time and the future.
Thomas Keating
You and I, as citizens, have the obligation to shape the debates of our time, not only with the votes we cast, but the voices we lift in defense of our most ancient values and enduring ideas.
Barack Obama
The whole immigration issue suggests the inevitability of people in our time seeking economic security that they can’t find at home, which usually involves bringing their religion with them. One’s children are going to be married to people outside their religious traditions as well as inside.
Thomas Keating
If there existed no external means for dimming their consciences, one-half of the men would at once shoot themselves, because to live contrary to one’s reason is a most intolerable state, and all men of our time are in such a state.
Leo Tolstoy
We should be blessed if we lived in the present always, and took advantage of every accident that befell us, like the grass which confesses the influence of the slightest dew that falls on it; and did not spend our time in atoning for the neglect of past opportunities, which we call doing our duty.
Henry David Thoreau
One of the real dangers of our time is people’s indifference to history.
Dale Jamieson
If we spend all our time gazing at the wonders ahead without remembering where we’re standing right now, we’re going to trip and fall flat on our face, over and over again.
Greg Egan
The driving force behind ‘In Our Time’ is that I want an education. I want to know more about science, say, and if I want to know, then other people probably do, too.
Melvyn Bragg
History is replete with proofs, from Cato the Elder to Kennedy the Younger, that if you scratch a statesman you find an actor, but it is becoming harder and harder, in our time, to tell government from show business.
James Thurber
We are all drawn to problems and solving problems. Joy doesn’t demand our time. So we have to mark that time on our schedules. That’s the only way you are going to get it. Five minutes, three times a day in your schedule. That’s doable.
Bonnie St. John
Fester has a lot going for him. He’s 120 volt AC and DC, and he’s great with dynamite. His only trouble is that he’s one of the great losers of our time. He would make a great spy, but he kinda stands out in a crowd.
Jackie Coogan
Our current use of time is not rational. There is therefore no point in seeking marginal improvements in how we spend our time. We need to go back to the drawing board and overturn all our assumptions about time.
Richard Koch
Confronted with the choice between having time and having things, we’ve chosen to have things. Today it is a luxury to read what Socrates said, not because the books are expensive, but because our time is scarce.
Gabriel Zaid
A growing and increasingly influential movement of philosophers, ethicists, law professors and activists are convinced that the great moral struggle of our time will be for the rights of animals.
Michael Pollan
The refusal to take sides on great moral issues is itself a decision. It is a silent acquiescence to evil. The Tragedy of our time is that those who still believe in honesty lack fire and conviction, while those who believe in dishonesty are full of passionate conviction.
Fulton J. Sheen
The terrorism of the suicide bomber and the terrorism of aerial bombardment are indeed morally equivalent. To say otherwise (as either side might) is to give one moral superiority over the other, and thus serve to perpetuate the horrors of our time.
Howard Zinn
Alternative Lifestyles, the emotional fly-drive packages of our times, come equipped with a set of clothes, a choice of authors, a limited menu of sports and a discount coupon book of clichГ©s.
Ellen Goodman
People said, ‘You must be mad, or on drugs,’ which I found a bit disappointing. What about imagination? It reflects our time that people sooner assume you’re on drugs or mad, rather than free.
Noel Fielding
Although his time is not always our time, we can be sure that the lord keeps his promises.
Henry B. Eyring
Our time here is brief, our risk enormous. Don’t waste the one or increase the other, if you please.
Stephen King
Let us love the passing hour, let us hurry up and enjoy our time.
Alphonse de Lamartine
The tendency of our time is wholly oriented toward the secular. The efforts of the mystics will remain episodes. Despite a deepening of our conceptions of life, we will build no cathedrals.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
I think one of the most important changes of our time has been our attitude to fear. Every civilisation defends itself by keeping fears out and saying ‘we protect you from fear’. But it also produces new fears and throughout history people have changed the kind of fears which have worried them.
Theodore Zeldin
The great political tragedy of our time is that conservative leaders in America have chosen to use their superior messaging and political skills to thwart serious action on global warming.
Joseph J. Romm
Do we spend most of our days trying to remember or to forget? Do we spend most of our time running towards or away from our lives?
Markus Zusak
Our time is brief, and it will pass no matter what we do. So let us have purpose in spending it. Let us spend it so that our time matters to each of us, and matters to all those whose lives we touch.
Philip Zimbardo
Every day, a piece of music, a short story, or a poem dies because its existence is no longer justified in our time. And things that were once considered immortal have become mortal again, no one knows them anymore. Even though they deserve to survive.
Elfriede Jelinek
Modern dancers give a sinister portent about our times. The dancers don’t even look at one another. They are just a lot of isolated individuals jiggling in a kind of self-hypnosis and dancing with others only to remind themselves that we are not completely alone in this world.
Agnes de Mille
Our music has always been instant reactive and I guess taking our time to absorb things and say what you really want to say could be much more offensive than anything we’ve ever done.
Fred Durst
Unfortunately, we both lead incredibly hectic lives that force us to spend a majority of our time apart. I will always admire and respect Tiger. He and his beautiful family will always hold a special place in my heart.
Lindsey Vonn
I believe that, seven generations beyond us, those who look back on our time will find that it was the cry of the trees that helped to restart the dreaming and foster the understanding that we must dream not only for ourselves but also for our communities and for all that shares life with us in our fragile bubble of air.
Robert Moss
We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we’ve established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.
Earl Nightingale
We don’t know how to use energy or what to use it for. And we cannot restrain ourselves. Our time is characterized as much by the abuse and waste of human energy as it is by the abuse and waste of fossil fuel energy.
Wendell Berry
Mounting an expedition to actualize a Compassionate Commonwealth of all peoples…is the great spiritual challenge of our time.
Sam Keen
I loved Jordan. He was one of the greatest athletes of our time.
Mariah Carey
Here we encounter two conflicting concepts with which we must come to grips in our time: the idea of national solidarity and the idea of international cooperation.
Gustav Stresemann
All art is exorcism. I paint dreams and visions too; the dreams and visions of my time. Painting is the effort to produce order; order in yourself. There is much chaos in me, much chaos in our time.
Otto Dix
We should live and labor in our time that what came to us as a seed may go to the next generation as blossom, and what came to us as blossom, may go to them as fruit. This is what we mean by progress.
Henry Ward Beecher
If we spend our time with regrets over yesterday, and worries over what might happen tomorrow, we have no today in which to live.
Thomas Sowell
If our dreams could edit the news (and sometimes our nightmares) these poems are how they’d wake us up to the urgency of our times.
Betsy Sholl
It is true, as Sartre once wrote, referring to French Army atrocities in Algeria, that the real tragedy in our time is that any of us can be, interchangeably, victim or torturer.
Gore Vidal
One of the greatest problems of our time is that many are schooled but few are educated.
Thomas More
Many spend their time berating practitioners for not applying their method. We all need to disseminate our ideas, but most of our time should be spent applying and improving our methods, not selling them. The best way to sell a mouse trap is to display some trapped mice.
David Parnas
As we’re bombarded daily with new ads for pills, diets and ab-doers, we have to protect our wallets and our time.
Dan John
Europe is dying. That is one of the unsayable truths of our time. We are undergoing the moral equivalent of climate change and no one is talking about it.
Jonathan Sacks
We spend all our time teaching reading and writing. We spend absolutely no time at all, in most schools, teaching either speaking or, more importantly still, listening.
Julian Treasure
And finally, in our time a beard is the one thing that a woman cannot do better than a man, or if she can her success is assured only in a circus.
John Steinbeck
Heroics are not easily had for the young in our times. Perhaps that is why they go to such extremes to create their own dangers.
Gail Godwin
I hope that all of us who were fortunate enough to have benefited will put our time, our resources and our efforts into making sure that kids, particularly kids without means, have a way to achieve.
Condoleezza Rice
Immortality is a by-product of good work. Masterpieces are not for artists, they’re for critics. Critics can’t even make music by rubbing their back legs together. My message to the world is ‘Let’s swing, sing, shout, make noise! Let’s not mimic death before our time comes! Let’s be wet and noisy!’
Mel Brooks
Thich Nhat Hanh is one of the greatest teachers of our time. He reaches from the heights of insight down to the deepest places of the absolutely ordinary.
Robert Thurman
Thomas Jefferson believed that to preserve the very foundations of our Nation, we would need dramatic change from time to time. Well, my fellow Americans, this is our time. Let us embrace it.
William J. Clinton
Far from the stereotype that psychodynamic treatments are appropriate only for the ‘worried well,’ a growing body of evidence points to their efficacy in dealing with the most pressing mental health problems of our time.
Robert J. Waldinger
I have an increasing sense that the most important crisis of our time is spiritual and that we need places where people can grow stronger in the spirit and be able to integrate the emotional struggles in their spiritual journeys.
Henri Nouwen
The Pro-Life cause is the preeminent cause of our time, and this struggle between the gospel of life and the culture of death will determine the destiny of mankind.
Peter Garrett
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe; a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and his feelings as something separate from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.
Albert Einstein
Chanel, General De Gaulle and Picasso are the three most important figures of our time.
Andre Malraux
Following 25 children for the TV series ‘Child of Our Time’ has been extraordinary. The BBC’s original plan was to commemorate the new millennium. What better way than to film a number of expectant mums from across the U.K.? Coming from widely different backgrounds, all were due to give birth on January 1, 2000.
Robert Winston
Perhaps love makes us grow old before our time and makes us young again when youth has passed.
Paulo Coelho
The events and prophecies of our time are preparing us for the Savior’s Second Coming.
Robert D. Hales
It’s not always about survival, this life we are given; it’s usually so much easier than that. It’s about trusting the eternal life force that is flowing within us-letting that force lead the way through all of the inevitable changes we will face across the span of our time here on Earth.
Elizabeth Lesser
Your calendar never lies. All we have is our time. The way we spend our
time is our priorities, is our strategy. Your calendar knows what you
really care about. Do you?
Tom Peters
You know, Leonard Cohen is amazing, just a mastermind, and really one of the great geniuses of our time.
Jake Shimabukuro
As president, I will stand up to the great human rights tests of our time – in China, Russia, and the Middle East. We must send a signal to our allies and adversaries that America is back in the leadership business.
Carly Fiorina
The great lesson of our time is that evil still exists, and when evil is on the march, it must be confronted.
Stephen J. Solarz
My husband and I were so closely united by our affection and our common work that we passed nearly all of our time together.
Marie Curie
The fight against radical Islamic terrorists and ISIS has been called the war of our time.
Wolf Blitzer
The challenge of our time is to find a journey worthy of your heart and your soul.
Seth Godin
Everywhere, the ethical predicament of our time imposes itself with an urgency which suggests that even the question Have we anything to eat? will be answered not in material but in ethical terms.
Hugo Ball
History will see advertising as one of the real evil things of our time. It is stimulating people constantly to want things, want this, want that.
Malcolm Muggeridge
In almost everything I’ve written there is a thread of this: man’s seemingly palpable need to dislike someone other than himself.
Rod Serling
The man of knowledge in our time is bowed down under a burden he never imagined he would ever have: the overproduction of truth that cannot be consumed.
Ernest Becker
I’m very fortunate to have the privilege of working with directors like Bill Condon and Paul Thomas Anderson, who I think is one of the greatest filmmakers of our time.
Rami Malek
If everyone has the same amount of time and yet some earn more than others, can we say then say that it’s how we use our time that determines the money we make?
Gary W. Keller
It is the beginning of all true criticism of our time to realize that it has really nothing to say, at the very moment when it has invented so tremendous a trumpet for saying it.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I try to be sensitive to the power of language, to the power of language that God uses to reveal something about what Christ is doing in our time. That is why I’m always excited about preaching, because there is always something new.
Blase J. Cupich
Profound and powerful forces are shaking and remaking our world. And the urgent question of our time is whether we can make change our friend and not our enemy.
William J. Clinton
“Thank You for Being Late” pinpoints 2007 as the year what he calls the, quote, great acceleration began, ushering in a dizzying and disorienting era of change – technological, economic, environmental. Dealing with that change, the challenge of our time, says Tom Friedman. He’s here to explain it right now.
Mary Matalin
The way in which we experience and interpret the world obviously depends very much indeed on the kind of ideas that fill our minds. If they are mainly small, weak, superficial, and incoherent, life will appear insipid , uninteresting, petty and chaotic.
E. F. Schumacher
Why do we have to spend our lives striving to be something that we would never want to be, if we only knew what we wanted? Why do we waste our time doing things which… are just the opposite of what we were made for?
Thomas Merton
We need to stop spending so much of our time trying to make the right decisions and instead start spending our time making decisions and then making them right.
Rory Vaden
Here’s a new ‘Blessing’ for our time — ‘May Anderson Cooper never be sent to report on your town!
Vera Nazarian
From 1967 to ’70, Nigeria fought a war – the Nigeria-Biafra war. And in the middle of that war, I was 14 years old. We spent much of our time with my mother cooking. For the army – my father joined the army as a brigadier – the Biafran army. We were on the Biafran side.
Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala
To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to the violence of our times.
Thomas Merton
You must get engaged with people who are far less privileged than you. I think you must devote your time if not your resources… Because it is very, very important from the point of view of the development of our country.
Azim Premji
So let’s take our time to say what we want. Use what we got before it’s all gone.
Meghan Trainor
The primary purpose of the Museum is to help people enjoy, understand, and use the visual arts of our time.
Alfred H. Barr, Jr.
Prayer is a trade to be learned. We must be apprentices and serve our time at it. Painstaking care, much thought, practice and labour are required to be a skillful tradesman in praying. Practice in this, as well as in all other trades, makes perfect.
Edward McKendree Bounds
As a nation, this is the moment to start seriously investing our time, energy and resources into proven methods of reducing violence, both within our nation as well as internationally. The cost of violence to our culture and our children is simply not sustainable.
Joaquin Phoenix
While I sleep, I dream of you, and when I wake, I long to hold you in my arms. If anything, our time apart has only made me more certain that I want to spend my nights by your side, and my days with your heart.
Nicholas Sparks
Storytelling helps us understand each other, translate the issues of our times, and the tools of theater and film can be powerful in helping young people to develop communication/collaboration skills, let alone improving their own confidence.
Kevin Spacey
But do you know why we are always more just and generous toward the dead? The reason is simple. With them there is no obligation. They leave us free and we can take our time, fit the testimonial between a cocktail party and a nice little mistress, in our spare time, in short.
Albert Camus
Same-sex couples should have the right to civil marriage. Our time on this earth is limited, I know that better than most. Life comes down to who you love and who loves you back- government has no place in the middle.
Mark Kirk
We stand on no high moral plateau in our time. We are, in fact, plumbing depths of depravity unknown to our ancestors–and whatever may have been the evil in which they engaged, at least they were willing to acknowledge the principle by which their evil was condemned. We have even turned our back on the principle.
Alan Keyes
The best introduction to the psychological world of one of the most important and gifted writers of our time.
Italo Calvino
Prayer is speaking to God – but sometimes He uses our times of prayerful silence to speak to us in return.
Billy Graham
Time is like money, the less we have of it to spare the further we make it go.
Josh Billings
A strange fanaticism fills our time: the fanatical hatred of morality, especially of Christian morality.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
We Americans are the peculiar, chosen people – the Israel of our time; we bear the ark of the liberties of the world.
Herman Melville
Unresolved emotional pain is the great contagion of our time — of all time.
Marc Ian Barasch
Only the family of God can solve the problems of our time.
James Meredith
How terrifically dynamic is our time! We can mobilize all the spiritual, all the moral, all the political strength of Africa and Asia on the side of peace. Yes, we! We, the people of Asia and Africa!
This is our time. This is our opportunity. Together, we will accomplish great things.
Matt Bevin
One of the main problems of our time is that men are deprived of their human qualities that are wrongly called feminine, and women are deprived of their human qualities that are wrongly called masculine.
Gloria Steinem
The safety-obsessed church lacks the inner dynamic to foster profound missional impact in our time.
Alan Hirsch
We are all trying to balance our careers and children and give as much of ourselves and our time to them. You work and have a husband, and projects, and friends. It is a balancing act.
Kelly Preston
Whether it’s the best of times or the worst of times, it’s the only time we’ve got.
Art Buchwald
About a third of my cases are suffering from no clinically definable neurosis, but from the senselessness and emptiness of their lives.
Carl Jung
Pretty much at all times music motivates me. How can I say this without sounding in any way proud of myself? Obviously I’ve always written songs that are critical of our government, and talk about our times. Hopefully you attempt to be timeless while doing it.
Eddie Vedder
We become like the five people we spend most of our time with; Oh, we’ve got to be picky, and you might have to fire a few people who don’t belong in that inner circle because they can’t help you be your best and further your purpose.
Harris Faulkner
Further reforms should be undertaken to transform the U.N. into a stronger and more effective Organization that can fulfill its role of harmonizing the interests and behaviors of States in the face of the monumental changes of our time.
Nguyen Phu Trong
We have to put in our time every day to try and achieve and learn so that we can develop our talents and each of you, thank goodness, have special talents; each of you are special persons.
Bruce Vento
It is for us and our time…to say the right makes might.
Abraham Lincoln
Infinitely more important than sharing one’s material wealth is sharing the wealth of ourselves – our time and energy, our passion and commitment, and, above all, our love.
William E. Simon
The destruction of the earth’s environment is the human rights challenge of our time.
Desmond Tutu
I believe that Gandhi’s views were the most enlightened of all the political men in our time. We should strive to do things in his spirit: not to use violence in fighting for our cause, but by non-participation in anything you believe is evil.
Albert Einstein
Prisons are like the concentration camps of our time. So many go in and never come out, and primarily they’re black and Latino.
Lisa Bonet
It’s very dangerous to invent something in our times; ostentatious men of the other world, who are hostile to innovations, roam about angrily. To live in peace, one has to stay away from innovations and new ideas. Innovations, like trees, attract the most destructive lightnings to themselves.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Some people say that taxes are the price we pay for civilization. But the runaway taxes of our time are the price we pay for being gullible.
Thomas Sowell
The accounting of the sacrifice is, more than anything else, the attitude toward war memorials in our time.
Friedrich St. Florian
There is an enormous thrust in our time to have a simple answer. And that simple answer is that all depends on Alan Greenspan and the Federal Reserve. And Alan, who is an old acquaintance of mine, is a marvelous performer in the impression he gives of enormously great perception.
John Kenneth Galbraith
It keeps startling me that at the beginning of this 21st century, at a time when we can . . . explore the depths of the seas and build an international space station, we have not been able to make childbirth safe for all women around the world. … This is one of the greatest social causes of our time.
Thoraya Obaid
Alan Rusbridger is, to many, among the most admired newspaper editors of our time.
Michael Wolff
We want people to experience art and think about it. The art reflects our time, it is about our culture.
David Elliott
The crises of our time, it becomes increasingly clear, are the necessary impetus for the revolution now under way. And once we understand nature’s transformative powers, we see that it is our powerful ally, not a force to feared our subdued.
Thomas Kuhn
Nothing in our time is more interesting than the erstwhile capitalist corporation and the erstwhile Communist firm should, under the imperatives of organization, come together as oligarchies of their own members.
John Kenneth Galbraith
If our god’s work is to be done in our time, we must do it ourselves.
Dan Simmons
The grief of losing my father has come in waves over the years, as it does with most people. His love and devotion as a father provided my closest, most intimate relationship. Dad, and our time together, is in my bones. While reflecting on him, the memories themselves seem to boil down into certain ‘essences of Dad.’
Jennifer Grant
Photography in our time leaves us with a grave responsibility. While we are playing in our studios with broken flowerpots, oranges, nude studies and still lifes, one day we know that we will be brought to account: life is passing before our eyes without our ever having seen a thing.
When you’re present, be present the best you can. Like I said, we all fail. But I think from a dad standpoint, children want our time. Sometimes it might just be five minutes, and sometimes it can be a lot more, but I think they want our time and to be engaged with them and present.
Philip Rivers
The method of our time is to use not a single but multiple models for exploration.
Marshall McLuhan
One of the troubles of our times is that we are all, I think, precocious as personalities and backward as characters.
W. H. Auden
Nearly every moment of every day, we have the opportunity to give something to someone else – our time, our love, our resources.
S. Truett Cathy
“Writing” is the Latin of our times. The modern language of the people is video and sound.
Lawrence Lessig
What I find most interesting in fashion is that it has to reflect our time. You have to witness your own moment.
Nicolas Ghesquiere
Do not listen to those who say there is nothing you can do to the very real and large social and environmental issues of our time.
Maude Barlow
We all have to believe in something in order to exist successfully in this world and to enjoy our time here, which is short. I know that.
The joke of our time is the suicide of intention.
Theodor W. Adorno
I believe that Gandhi’s views were the most enlightened of all the political men of our time.
Albert Einstein
Today, nobody sees, or wishes to see, that in our time the enslavement of the majority of men is based on money taxes, levied on land and otherwise, which are collected by government from the subjects.
Leo Tolstoy
I think it’s not controversial to say there’s a lot of us who need to be reminded that we’re wasting our time and making things worse for ourselves if we’re carrying anger around with us all the time.
Brendan Hunt
For similar folly, our own country, in the transition from the colonial period, also paid a fearful price; and from a like catastrophe the United States has been twice saved in our time by the arguments formulated by Turgot.
Andrew Dickson White
If we are true to Canada, if we do not desire to become part and parcel of these people, we cannot overlook this the greatest revolution of our times. Let us remember this, that when the three cries among our next neighbours are money, taxation, blood, it is time for us to provide for our own security.
Thomas D’Arcy McGee
We have a responsibility in our time, as others have had in theirs, not to be prisoners of history but to shape history, a responsibility to fill the role of path-finder, and to build with others a global network of purpose and law.
Madeleine Albright
We can’t dwell upon another’s ingratitude without using up our time and talents unprofitably.
Neal A. Maxwell
In our time there are many artists who do something because it is new; they see their value and their justification in this newness. They are deceiving themselves; novelty is seldom the essential. This has to do with one thing only; making a subject better from its intrinsic nature.
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
A computer can be a useful and indispensable tool. But if we allow it to devour our time with vain, unproductive, and sometimes destructive pursuits, it becomes an entangling net.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
We all have our time machines. Some take us back, they’re called memories. Some take us forward, they’re called dreams.
Jeremy Irons
There’s nothing in your life or in our collective problems that does not require our ability to put our attention where we care about. At the end of our lives, all we have is our attention and our time.
Tristan Harris
Task switching is hard because we do not control what is on our mind. Despite our efforts, the original task continues to occupy our mental bandwidth. Although we can control where our time goes, we cannot fully control how our bandwidth is allocated.
Sendhil Mullainathan
Not all, but too many of the best writers, composers, and artists of our time begin to be acclaimed only when they no longer have anything to say and take to performing instead of stating.
Clement Greenberg
As a scholar who regularly surveys archival material, I think that, a century from now, cultural historians will find David Horowitz’s spiritual and political odyssey paradigmatic for our time.
Camille Paglia
Too many of us are afraid to slow down because then we would have to take a good look at how we’re using our time and what we’re becoming. We don’t want to listen to that other voice deep inside, telling us something is not right.
Dennis Rainey
But for those who really want to make the world a better place, can we start looking at Bill Gates’s path instead of Steve Jobs? I like my iPad, but Gates is one of the greatest heroes of our time. For me, that has nothing to do with Microsoft and everything to do with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Tom Anderson
Beyond the futility of armed force, and ultimately more important, is the fact that war in our time inevitably results in the indiscriminate killing of large numbers of people. To put it more bluntly, war is terrorism. That is why a ‘war on terrorism’ is a contradiction in terms.
Howard Zinn
But I will wear white – the whitest white! – purest most pristine white! – through the dark terrible days of winter – as no man of our time will ever dare.
Fashion is a reflection of our times. Fashion can tell you everything that’s going on in the world with a strong fashion image.
Anna Wintour
One of the things I’ve been most excited by is U.S. television drama. For my money, it’s some of the greatest narrative art of our time. Each series is like a 19th-century Russian novel: you need to do a lot of work in the first few episodes, just as you do in the first 50-60 pages of those books.
Kevin Barry
There is no portion of our time that is our time, and the rest God’s; there is no portion of money that is our money, and the rest God’s money. It is all His; He made it all, gives it all, and He has simply trusted it to us for His service. A servant has two purses, the master’s and his own, but we have only one.
Adolphe Monod
We all need the living green or we’ll shrivel up inside. To make the modern city livable is the task of our times.
Jens Jensen
I have arrived at the conviction that the neglect by economists to discuss seriously what is really the crucial problem of our time is due to a certain timidity about soiling their hands by going from purely scientific questions into value questions.
Friedrich August von Hayek
The frenetic pace of modern life can lead to an obscuring or even a loss of what is truly human… Perhaps more than in other periods of history, our time is in need of that genius which belongs to women, and which can ensure sensitivity for human beings in every circumstance.
Pope John Paul II
The oppression of women is the single most corrosive and urgent problem of our time.
Brandi Carlile
Led Zeppelin is the greatest. Robert Plant is one of the most original vocalists of our time. As a rock band they deserve the kind of success they’re getting.
Freddie Mercury
We’re in a declared war, but unless were clear about who the enemy is, we’ll waste our time fighting enemies that aren’t enemies at all. There’s only one enemy and no matter what people do, say or react people are never the enemy. The enemy is our only enemy.
John Wimber
Nothing is more abhorrent to me than sugary-sweet photography full of pretense, poses, and gimmickry. For this reason, I have allowed myself to tell the truth about our times and people in a sincere manner.
August Sander
Our nation has abundant clean energy resources, and tapping them will generate jobs, make the air safer to breathe, and tackle climate change – the greatest environmental crisis of our time.
Frances Beinecke
The strategy we need to pursue is one of recovering our time – to push back on our hours of work. We need to form a new alliance between feminist groups, labor unions, child advocates, progressive corporations, and the federal government insofar as it’s willing to pursue a family-friendly agenda.
Arlie Russell Hochschild
It is a sad commentary of our times when our young must seek advice and counsel from ‘Dear Abby’ instead of going to Mom and Dad.
Abigail Van Buren
The displacement of the idea that facts and evidence matter by the idea that everything boils down to subjective interests and perspectives is – second only to American political campaigns – the most prominent and pernicious manifestation of anti-intellectualism in our time.
Larry Laudan
For mankind as a whole, a possession infinitely more valuable than individual life is our genetic heritage, our link with past and future… Yet genetic deterioration through man-made agents is the menace of our time.
Rachel Carson
It is hard to see taxing plastic bags as one of the great issues of our time that merits the foremost place in our finest statesmen’s minds. It is an absurd little issue, a picayune proportion of household waste, and a pointless inconvenience in people’s lives.
Jacob Rees-Mogg
The Meters are, I think, the most influential group in our time to come out of New Orleans, to have changed and introduced us all to a way of playing, and to a groove and a level of feel in playing funk-jazz.
John Scofield
The happy problem of our time – longer life.
Lillian Hellman
Religions have become a hindrance, rather than a help, to our shared pursuit of peace and progress. They tend to make us meaner rather than better human beings, less sensitive to the demands of justice, compassion and fellow humanity in our times.
R.I.P. Steve Jobs. I bet you’re busy right now revolutionizing and redesigning the afterlife for all of us to enjoy when our time comes
Joe Satriani
If our dreams can last, then we could turn our time and place to gold.
B. W. Powe
Night is falling. The gods have left us for those who please them better. Our time in the world is passed, and we are as wasted as the wind against the mountains. Shadows are falling, the gods have left us.
Jim Grimsley
Change is the very fabric of our time.
David Brin
I do not know what meaning classical studies could have for our time if they were not untimely that is to say, acting counter to our time and thereby acting on our time and, let us hope, for the benefit of a time to come.
Friedrich Nietzsche
I believe it is peace for our time.
Neville Chamberlain
I think it’s the tragedy of our time that we’re not aware of the affect of the manner in which we’ve adopted tools. Those tools have become who we are.
Godfrey Reggio
Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.
William Penn
Income inequality and wage stagnation finally took their place among the principal moral issues of our time.
David Rolf
A lot of people are focused on climate change as a defining challenge of our time. A lot of people think it is a non-problem, at least in the United States.
Cass Sunstein
The two endorsements I’m most proud of come from Isabel Wilkerson and Toni Morrison. The latter is the greatest American fiction writer of our time, and the former is on her way to being the greatest American nonfiction writer of our time.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
Richard Avedon is a true genius of photography and one of the greatest artists of our time.
Donatella Versace
Gymnastics demands so much of our time. We train all week and travel and compete on weekends. The people you’re surrounded by really become your second family, your best friends, your sisters. My coach was like a second mother for me.
Amanda Borden
The corporation is the dominant and dominating institution of our time. Governments identify growth and development with commercial corporations and shower them with subsidies, tax privileges, and appropriate labour legislation and market support to attract a commitment and investment.
Eric Kierans
Philanthropy is one of the most hopeful characteristics of our time.
Mary Livermore
Over the past 20 years, I have presented many science programmes on BBC1. But none is, I think, more socially important, or of more human interest, than this ongoing series of ‘Child of Our Time.’
Robert Winston
Our time here is magic! It’s the only space you have to realize whatever it is that is beautiful, whatever is true, whatever is great, whatever is potential, whatever is rare, whatever is unique, in. It’s the only space.
Ben Okri
The idea that creative endeavor and mind-altering substances are entwined is one of the great pop-intellectual myths of our time.
Stephen King
How shrunk, how dwindled, in our times Creation’s mighty seed – For Man has broke the Fellowship With murder, lust, and greed.
Margaret Atwood
The act of creation, making anything, is an alteration. We cannot eliminate the medium or ourselves from the process, and both are limited. We create decisive moments by devoting our time and attention to specific things. This is the greatest gift we can give anyone or anything – pieces of our life.
John Paul Caponigro
Thinking men and women the world over are beginning to realize that patriotism is too narrow and limited a conception to meet the necessities of our time.
Emma Goldman
I’ve always believed that service to others is rent we pay for our time on this planet.
Tony Curtis
Technology is both a tool for helping humans and for destroying them. This is the paradox of our times which we’re compelled to face.
Frank Herbert
All Of Us Might Wish At Times That We Lived In A More Tranquil World….(yet) Our Times Are Challenging And Filled With Opportunity.
Thomas Paine
If we don’t spend our time on this earth looking out for one another, what are we really doing with our lives?
Kyle Carpenter
Unfortunately, science cannot be reduced to short, catchy phrases. And if this is all that the general public can comprehend, it’s no wonder that we spend so much of our time in the interminable debate about belief in God, or lack thereof.
Greg Graffin
Putting a little time aside for clean fun and good humor is very necessary to relieve the tensions of our time.
Hattie McDaniel
Poverty is a scandal of our times because it CAN be changed.
Catherine Marshall
Liberalism, the dominant ideology of our time, has been dangerously distorted by the impact of economism. It is that impact which has knocked the citizen off his pedestal and replaced him with the consumer.
Larry Siedentop
Make use of radio, TV and films discriminatively; only for programs that will enhance our knowledge and culture. Television is tele-visham (tele-poison, in Malayalam). If we are not careful, it can corrupt our culture, damage our eyes and drain away our time.
Mata Amritanandamayi
Without a doubt, I was born to want to make cinema, but the kind of cinema I want to make is not like commercial movies, which I enjoy myself, but I wanted to be the kind of filmmaker who wrote original work, sort of like a novelist would who deals with who we are and our times or our relationships.
Francis Ford Coppola
The only great spirit of our time.
Simone Weil
I want to be the best leadoff hitter of our time.
Johnny Damon
I agree that income disparity is the great issue of our time. It is even broader and more difficult than the civil rights issues of the 1960s. The ’99 percent’ is not just a slogan. The disparity in income has left the middle class with lowered, not rising, income, and the poor unable to reach the middle class.
Eleanor Holmes Norton
One day we’ll have a system that includes the rights of the people to make money and keep it, rather than a system where you can vote for the fox or the wolf, but there’s no little box that endorses the chickens. Our time will come, you can be sure of that.
Stuart Wilde
I continue to make paintings of people and their moments in our time because I am of that time. Out of that I hope to make pictures that are timeless.
Burton Silverman
While technology and assessment can help complement the important work of our teachers, I worry that we are spending too much of our time testing.
Gary Herbert
Now is our time to change the world
Swift flies our time on pinions fleet, Like vapours on the breeze; The transient bliss we now call sweet, The passing moments seize. The gilded joy, the present hour, Soon wing themselves away; Departing like the fading flower That pleas’d us Yesterday.
William Muir
Unless we do more than simply learn the trade of our time, we are but apprentices, and not yet masters of the art of life.
Henry David Thoreau
One of the greatest superstitions of our time is the belief that it has none.
Celia Green
“Wholeheartedly” means that we give our time, love, and energy unstintingly.
Ayya Khema
Form follows profit is the aesthetic principle of our times.
Richard Rogers
No period of history has ever been great or ever can be that does not act on some sort of high, idealistic motives, and idealism in our time has been shoved aside, and we are paying the penalty for it.
Alfred North Whitehead
All thoughtful persons perceive that the ideas of the morality of sexual relations upheld by the religions and laws of the Western nations are in our time undergoing a radical transformation.
Ellen Key
Transgender discrimination is the civil rights issue of our time
Joe Biden
The way we spend our time defines who we are.
Jonathan Estrin
Without knowledge and understanding, one tends to become a passive spectator rather than an active participant in the great decisions of our time.
Diane Ravitch
Peace comes from the absence of fear, from a consciousness of trust, from a deep, underlying faith in the absolute goodness and mercy, the final integrity of the universe in which we live, and of every cause to which we give our thought, our time and our attention.
Ernest Holmes
Non-conformism is the major, perhaps the only, sin of our time.
Robert M. Lindner
Modern dancers give a sinister portent about our times.
Agnes de Mille
I can’t beleive I’m here to tell the tale, this was my first brush with death, and God must have been looking after us and obviously, it wasn’t our time.
Samantha Fox
The Millennium Development Goals were a pledge to uphold the principles of human dignity, equality and equity, and free the world from extreme poverty. The MDGs, with eight goals and a set of measurable time-bound targets, established a blueprint for tackling the most pressing development challenges of our time.
Ban Ki-moon
In our time, the symbol of state intrusion into the private life is the mandatory urine test.
Christopher Hitchens
Reagan did not suffer from the dismal plague of doubts which has assailed so many politicians in our times and which has rendered them incapable of clear decisions.
Margaret Thatcher
Tyga takes King to school, I take him to school – we pretty much split our time with him down the middle. So, co-parenting isn’t bad at all with Tyga.
Blac Chyna
A renewed commitment to the freedom and opportunity of our people is the touchstone of our time. In this new century, where tests are many and challenges change with the shifting of the wind, we must hold fast to the principles that have made our nation the envy of the world.
Bill Owens
Queen has taken the all of our time for last four or five years, you know.
John Deacon
Our Times, a Brief History: As televisions became flatter, People became rounder.
Demetri Martin
New ideas are one of the most overrated concepts of our time. Most of the important ideas that we live with aren’t new at all.
Andy Rooney
To get all there is out of living, we must employ our time wisely, never being in too much of a hurry to stop and sip life, but never losing our sense of the enormous value of a minute.
Robert Updegraff
Love requires peace, love will dream; it cannot live upon the remnants of our time and our personality.
Ellen Key
…the high roads of the future will be clear, not only for us but for all, not only for our time but for a century to come.
Winston Churchill
It is in fact a part of the function of education to help us escape, not from our own time – for we are bound by that – but from the intellectual and emotional limitations of our time.
T. S. Eliot
The joke of our time is the suicide of intention.
Theodor Adorno
Norman Vincent Peale brought the Gospel in a very practical way in our time of history for not only New York but our nation and also the Trump family.
Paula White
I’m not against technology, but all tools should be used to their best advantage. We should be spending our time on things that have staying power, instead of on the latest thought of the latest blogger – and then moving on quickly to the next blogger.
J. I. Packer
My beloved friend – one of the most unique and charming personalities of our time.
Lewis Carroll
In our time political speech and writing are largely the defense of the indefensible.
George Orwell
Surely a long life must be somewhat tedious, since we are forced to call in so many trifling things to help rid us of our time, which will never return.
Samuel Johnson
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. One of the greatest problems of our time is that many are schooled, but few are educated.
Thomas More
I’m post-menopausal. I have nothing but time. Post-menopausal do not sleep. You obviously don’t know one. We get about three hours of sleep a night and the rest of the time we have to do something productive with our time.
Kathie Lee Gifford
My friends, history, history calls us to this time and to this place. A solemn choice rests with us – where do we go from here? Do we move slowly and incrementally? Or do we seize the challenge of our time and tackle the great issues of our day.
Tom Vilsack
However brief our time in the sun, if we waste a second of it, or complain that it is dull or barren or (like a child) boring, couldn’t this be seen as a callous insult to those unborn trillions who will never even be offered life in the first place?
Richard Dawkins
My work is like digging, it’s archaeological research among the arid materials of our times. That’s how I understand my first films, and that’s what I’m still doing…
Michelangelo Antonioni
We are living in what the Greeks called the kairos – the right moment – for a ‘metamorphosis of the gods’, of the fundamental principles and symbols. This peculiarity of our time, which is certainly not of our conscious choosing, is the expression of the unconscious man within us who is changing.
Carl Jung
A noble space, unlike any other of our time, for it is both strong and delicate. It seems to call at once for a Boeing 747 and for a string quartet.
Paul Goldberger
That is simply that Marxism has been tremendously fashionable in our time, so it has infected a very large number of major institutions in many countries of the world. So I suppose that we shouldn’t be too surprised that it should infect the church as well.
Jeane Kirkpatrick
Anyone who’s ever filed a tax return or visited the Department of Motor Vehicles understands that government does two things well: spend our money and waste our time.
Edwin Feulner
When the printing press was invented, it was inspired by the desire to make the Bible accessible to everyone. Today, people of passion who want to share their faith and provide quality entertainment for families are working in one of the most powerful media of our time–the interactive video game.
Jay Moore
That’s one of the ironies of our time: Right when we’re on the edge of serious improvements in health care, we’re also cooking the planet.
Kim Stanley Robinson
By the late twentieth century, our time, a mythic time, we are all chimeras, theorized and fabricated hybrids of machine and organism; in short, we are cyborgs.
Donna J. Haraway
I’m not comfortable with just entertaining. Although I like entertaining, I also like bringing forward the truth of our times as minstrels used to in the old days.
Serj Tankian
In my opinion, the true pioneers are those artists who make manifest in their works the new content, the determining characteristics of life in our time.
Mikhail Sholokhov
The sovereign state has in our times become a lethal danger to human civilization because technical developments enable it to employ an infinite number and variety of means of destruction.
Christian Lous Lange
In the Catholic view of things, abortion is a justice issue, not an issue of sexual morality… it is a civil rights issue, arguably the greatest civil rights issue of our time.
George Weigel
Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.
Thomas Jefferson
O’ thinkest thou we shall ever meet again? I doubt it not; and all these woes shall serve For sweet discourses in our times to come.
William Shakespeare
The great task of our time is to build a global society, where people can live together in peace
Karen Armstrong
And just as we acquaint ourselves with materials, just as we must understand functions, so we must become familiar with the psychological and spiritual factors of our day. No cultural activity is possible otherwise; for we are dependent on the spirit of our time.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
The fact is that automobiles no longer have a place in the big cities of our time.
Bertrand Delanoe
What happens after death is so unspeakably glorious that our imagination and our feelings do not suffice to form even an approximate conception of it. The dissolution of our time-bound form in eternity brings no loss of meaning.
Carl Jung
The majority of the books of our time give one the impression of having been manufactured in a day out of books read the day before.
Nicolas Chamfort
Time eateth all things, could old poets say, The times are chang’d, our times drink all away.
Benjamin Franklin
The prophecy of a world moving toward political unity is the light which guides all that is best, most vigorous, most truly alive in the work of our time.
Walter Lippmann
When we are generous in welcoming people and sharing something with them-some food, a place in our homes, our time-not only do we no longer remain poor: we are enriched.
Pope Francis
So frequently we mistakenly believe that our children need more things, when in reality their silent pleadings are simply for more of our time.
Thomas S. Monson
Each of us is a moving center, a space of divine mystery. And though we spend most of our time on the surface in the daily details of ordinary existence, most us hunger to connect to this space within, to break through to bliss, to be swept away into something bigger than us.
Gabrielle Roth
So I think if we’d just take our time as women, and do what comes natural to us and for us, we would make fewer mistakes.
Nia Long
We want to take our time with ‘Descender’ and let the story unfold at its own pace. But we have carefully planned each world and worked to give each its own look and feel. And each of the 9 core worlds will play a role in the series.
Jeff Lemire
If we are to candidly and comprehensively address climate change – which I believe is the true crisis of our time – we must find new ways to generate energy and fuel.
Tom Steyer
I do have the strength. Leadership, leadership is not about attacking people and disparaging people. Leadership is about creating a serious strategy to deal with the threat of our time.
Jeb Bush
To depersonalize man is the dominant drift of our times.
Henri Frederic Amiel
The Universal Declaration… as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations…it not only crystallizes the political thought of our times on these matters, but it has also influenced the thinking of legislators all over the world.
Dag Hammarskjold
I want to show my children the importance of donating our time and energy to help those in need.
Christina Anstead
The soul is one of the most venerable, enduring images of spiritual traditions worldwide. In The Great Field, John James brings new information to this ancient concept, and in so doing helps bridge the worlds of modern science and spirituality, which is one of the most urgent tasks of our time.
Larry Dossey
So often in this industry people tell us we’ve had our day or we’ve had our time.
Guy Sebastian
The trouble with our times is that the future is not what it used to be.
Paul Valery
We need to decide that we will not go to war, whatever reason is conjured up by the politicians or the media, because war in our time is always indiscriminate, a war against innocents, a war against children.
Howard Zinn
The great task of our time is to blow up all existing institutions to destroy.
Henrik Ibsen
I went on a cross-country trip with three buddies to find out what our generation is about. I bought a video camera, started shooting, learned as I went, and ended up with ‘Our Time,’ a feature-length documentary about what it’s like to be young in America. I was hooked.
Matthew Heineman
What’s magical about [bears] is that they just spend one-hundred percent of every minute of every hour of every day being a bear. And a tree-frog spends all of its time being a tree-frog. We spend all our time trying to be somebody else.
Stephen Fry
The proclamation of the Gospel remains the primary service that the Church owes to humanity, to offer the salvation of Christ to the man of our time, who is in many ways humiliated and oppressed, and to orientate in a Christian way cultural, social, and ethical transformations that are unfolding in the world.
Pope Benedict XVI
I had to work with Ben Mendelsohn who’s one of the great actors of our time. I had a lot of scenes with him and I was thrilled to be on the set with him; I just wanted to see how we were going to play it.
John Leguizamo
The ability to establish, grow, extend, and restore trust isВ the key professional and personal competency of our time.
Stephen Covey
In our time the blasphemies are threadbare. Pessimism is now patently, as it always was essentially, more commonplace than piety. Profanity is now more than an affectation – it is a
convention. The curse against God is Exercise I in the primer of minor poetry.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Just as we acquaint ourselves with materials, and just as we must understand functions, we must become familiar with the psychological and spiritual factors of the day. No cultural activity is possible otherwise, for we are dependent on the spirit of our time.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
The art of our time, sacred art included, will necessarily be characterized by a certain poverty, grimness and roughness which correspond to the violent realities of a cruel age.
Thomas Merton
Infinitely more important than sharing one’s material wealth is sharing the wealth of ourselves-our time and energy, our passion and commitment, and, above all, our love.
William E. Simon
Popular in our time, unpopular in his. So runs the stereotype of rejected genius.
Robert Hughes
The emergence of a unified Europe is one of the most revolutionary events of our time.
Henry A. Kissinger
Cutting for Stone is nothing short of masterful -a riveting tale of love, medicine, and the complex dynamic of twin brothers. It is beautifully conceived and written. The settings are wonderfully pictorial. There is no doubt in my mind that Cutting for Stone will endure in the permanent literature of our time.
Richard Selzer
It is ridiculous ever to forget that you and your business are each implanted in the society of the moment. We cannot ignore the world of our time. We had better understand it.
J. Irwin Miller
I still think that maybe the “afterlife” is just something we made up to ease the pain of loss, to make our time in the labyrinth bearable. Maybe we are just matter, and matter gets recycled
John Green
To every woman who gave birth, to every citizen and taxpayer, it’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women of the United States of America!
Patricia Arquette
It is not the nature of man, as I see it, ever to be quite satisfied with what he has in life…. Contentment tends to breed laxity, but a healthy discontent keeps us alert to the changing needs of our time.
Frances Perkins
I listen to music that is of our time and I just get angry.
Amy Winehouse
I was never revolutionary. The only revolutionary in our time was Strauss!
Arnold Schoenberg
We’re constantly making choices about the way we spend our time. The issue is not between the good and the bad, but between the good and the best. So often, the enemy of the best is the good.
Stephen Covey
The medium, or process, of our time – electric technology is reshaping and restructuring patterns of social interdependence and every aspect of our personal life. It is forcing us to reconsider and re-evaluate practically every thought, every action.
Marshall McLuhan
Let us … quietly accept our times, with the firm conviction that just as much good can be done today as at any time in the past, provided only that we have the will and the way to do it.
Etienne Gilson
It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth – and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
The test is the sixty seconds of every minute, and the sixty minutes of every hour, not our times of prayer and devotional meetings.
Oswald Chambers
Seeing outward is equivalent to looking backward in time because the telescope’s mirror is capturing primeval light… galaxies that existed before our time.
Richard Preston
The downfall of the industry seems to actually be good for art. I think the industry will find their way once the focus shifts from its greed-based origins, downsizes, and begins to support creative visions that speak to our times and shifting ideals.
Saul Williams
We have traveled with our kids since they were babies. We’ve had some crazy times, obviously, with the kids. My husband and I both work, and they just really look forward to our vacation and our time to be together to reconnect.
Busy Philipps
I am part of the World Economic Forum Global Council on Robotics and AI, and we spend a fair amount of our time together as a group discussing ethics, best practices, and the like.
Rana el Kaliouby
I think it’s quite a big decision for women to have children. In our time, I don’t think we thought so much about it. We just went and had them and of course, life is not fun-filled and not complete if you don’t have them. It’s a wonderful thing when you think about it.
Sharmila Tagore
Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?’ A man may do both,’ said Aragorn. ‘For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!
J. R. R. Tolkien
There is an urgent need for the emergence of a new generation of apostles anchored firmly in the word of Christ, capable of responding to the challenges of our times and prepared to spread the Gospel far and wide.
Pope Benedict XVI
I wanted to make an album that melodically people can connect to; something that reflects our times and the kinds of difficulties we face.
Emeli Sande
A stunning survey of the latest evidence for intelligent life on Mars. Mac Tonnies brings a thoughtful, balanced and highly accessible approach to one of the most fascinating enigmas of our time.
Herbie Brennan
When we waste our time, our time wastes us
Robin Sharma
We are here lounging our time away, doing nothing, and having nothing to do. It gives me great regret to be passing my time so uselessly when it could have been so importantly employed at home.
Thomas Jefferson
Dame Edna is that rarest sighting in our time of the absolute comic, an inspired personification of caprice whose comedy answered the primal call to take the audience for a tumble.
John Lahr
The artist in our time has two chief responsibilities: (1) art; and (2) sedition.
Edward Abbey
The advance of freedom is the great story of our time
George W. Bush
It is not enough to be busy. So are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?
Henry David Thoreau
What we spend our time on is probably the most important decision we make.
Ray Kurzweil
A journalist is basically a chronicler, not an interpreter of events. Where else in society do you have the license to eavesdrop on so many different conversations as you have in journalism? Where else can you delve into the life of our times?
Bill Moyers
