Pace Oddity – Daily Prompt!

Daily Prompt –   Pace Oddity.   

“To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.”  –  Emily Dickinson

“There is an appointed time for everything.

And there is a time for every event under heaven –

A time to give birth, and a time to die;

A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.”

–  Ecclesiastes, 3:1-2

“Who forces time is pushed back by time; who yields to time finds time on his side.”  –  Talmud

“Everything requires time.  It is the only truly universal condition.  All work takes place in time and uses up time.  Yet most people take for granted this unique, irreplaceable, and necessary resource.  Nothing else, perhaps, distinguishes effective executives as much as their tender loving care of time.”   –   Peter F. Drucker

“Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.”   –  Stephen Vincent Benet

“The bad news is time flies.  The good news is you’re the pilot.”  –   Michael Althsuler


Every second, every minute, every hour counts

Every day is a new time slot

Yesterday belong to bedtime stories

Time is ticking away, pacing and racing

My lofty dreams are yet to breathe

I must run a race as time pace by

Forward ever. I am marching on

In my smiling dimpled face

Moving with swift silent pace

Day by day, I crave to embrace

The golden fleece at the end of the race

I pray to go from grace to grace

Never to falter or be disgraced

I hope that in this space and place

My sojourn will be good to leave a trace

On this track called the human race

    1. Hi Lois, This is no flattery, your post was equally beautiful. And I learn something new from every read on WP – be it about pets, pictures, nature etc. There is something unique about every line, every verse, every writing style. Hey, you made me laugh too by your comment. 🙂 Like you, Michael Althsuler’s quote is one of my fav. His was a summation of the idea of time, I think. I appreciate your visit and hilarious feedback. Thank you and warm regards. 🙂
