Famous quotes containing the word hours:

    If we dreamed the same thing every night, it would affect us much as the objects we see every day. And if a common workman were sure to dream every night for twelve hours that he was a king, I believe he would be almost as happy as a king who should dream every night for twelve hours on end that he was a common workman.
    Blaise Pascal (1623–1662)

    When I died last, and, dear, I die
    As often as from thee I go
    Though it be but an hour ago,
    And lovers’ hours be full eternity.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)

    A broad margin of leisure is as beautiful in a man’s life as in a book. Haste makes waste, no less in life than in housekeeping. Keep the time, observe the hours of the universe, not of the cars. What are threescore years and ten hurriedly and coarsely lived to moments of divine leisure in which your life is coincident with the life of the universe?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
