Quotable #29: Time

quotable

“It is well known, that time once past never returns; and that the moment which is lost is lost for ever. Time therefore ought, above all other kinds of property, to be free from invasion and yet there is no man who does not claim the power of wasting that time which is the right of others.”

— Samuel Johnson, Idler, No. 14, July 15, 1758
