It is with trifles, and when he is off guard, that a man best reveals his character.

It was only a sunny smile, And little it cost in the giving. But like morning light, it scattered the night, And made the day worth living.

It's a long old road, but I know I'm gonna find the end.

Know the true value of time; snatch, seize, and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness, no laziness, no procrastination: never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.

Large streams from little mountains flow, tall oaks from little acorns grow.

Let him who would enjoy a good future waste none of his present.

Let no one be deluded that a knowledge of the path can substitute for putting one foot in front of the other.

Let us, then, be up and doing, With a heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait

Life is denied by lack of attention, whether it be to cleaning windows or trying to write a masterpiece.

Life is made up of little things. It is very rarely that an occasion is offered for doing a great deal at once. True greatness consists in being great in little things.

Little by little does the trick.

Little strokes fell great oaks.

Longevity conquers scandal every time.

Lost time is never found again.

Lost wealth may be replaced by industry, lost knowledge by study, lost health by temperance or medicine, but lost time is gone forever.

Lost wealth may be restored by industry, - the wreck of health regained by temperance, - forgotten knowledge restored by study, - alienated friendship smoothed into forgetfulness, - even forfeited reputation won by penitence and virtue. But who ever looked upon his vanished hours, - recalled his slighted years, - stamped them with wisdom, - or effaced from Heaven's record the fearful blot of wasted time?

Lost, yesterday, somewhere between sunrise and sunset, two golden hours, each set with sixty diamond minutes. No reward is offered, for they are gone forever!

Love and time-those are the only two things in all the world and all of life that cannot be bought, but only spent.

Make use of time if thou lovest eternity; yesterday cannot be recalled; tomorrow cannot be assured; only today is thine, which if thou procrastinate, thou losest; and which lost is lost forever. One today is worth two tomorrows.

Make use of time, let not advantage slip.
