My first joke that ever aired on ‘Late Night’ was for a list of ‘Top 10 Least Popular Summer Camps.’ My contribution – ‘Camp Tick in beautiful Lyme, Connecticut’ – squeaked in at No. 10. Like a trip to Camp Tick, my time at ‘Late Night’ faded into memory like a short session at a dicey summer camp.

Gordon B. Hinckley
I still spend my time feeling sorry for myself and making serious mistakes.

John Boorman
It is glorious to become a learner again at my time of life.
Bruno Walter
Maybe I don’t ever fully switch off, but I think the way I offset that is by splitting my time between film and music. I always want to challenge myself and grow, fail, self-flagellate, and then try again.

I’m pretty low-maintenance, but I like my time to myself, and once you have a child, you have to fight for it. I remember the first long bath I took [after Ptolemy’s birth] was such a moment.

Max von Sydow
If I spent all my time criticising myself, I wouldn’t be able to function. There are actors who theorise till the cows come home. I haven’t the patience for them. It’s maybe shallow, but that’s why I’ll never be part of the acting set.

James Beard
I’m not much of a math and science guy. I spent most of my time in school daydreaming and managed to turn it into a living. When I was making “Star Wars,” I wasn’t restrained by any kind of science.

Now public business takes up so much of my time that I must get time a Sundays or a nights to look after my own matters.

Kelli O’Hara
I took my job for Nickelodeon very seriously, and back then, it wasn’t certainly as big of a network as it is now, culturally, and people my age didn’t know much about it. But I loved my time there.

Mike O’Malley
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.

Carlos Delgado
My people are Americans. My time is today.
George Gershwin

Jim Harrison
I’m not a full-fledged producer, but I can be one if I want to really spend my time on straight being a producer.

Peter Lawford
I knew it was my time to retire, when I saw Messi running past me.
David Beckham
I am not on tumblr. I can barely spell tumblr. However, there does seem to be someone on tumblr (who copied my reddit user name) who is apparently trying to impersonate me. I like the idea that people are pretending to be me. I spend most of my time pretending not to be me.
Misha Collins
Don’t even go to the studio if you don’t think that your music’s going to do something. You’re wasting your time and my time.
Indeed, I suspect that the changes that have taken place during the last century in the average man’s fundamental beliefs, in his philosophy, in his conception of religion, in his whole world outlook, are greater than the changes that occurred during the preceding four thousand years all put together.
Robert Andrews Millikan
And if nobody reads me, shall I have wasted my time, when I have beguiled so many idle hours with such pleasant and profitable reflections?
Michel de Montaigne
Being in front of an audience makes me feel alive. Being with friends makes me feel alive. I’ve done some crazy stuff in my time and yet I can feel infinitely alive curled up on a sofa reading a book. So, what makes me feel alive? I guess it’s realizing I am part of the world around me.
Benedict Cumberbatch

I type my sermon notes into my BlackBerry, then I upload my sermon notes to my blog, my Facebook page and some of the information to my Twitter account. That’s 100,000 people I’m sharing the Gospel with by the virtue of typing it into my BlackBerry as opposed to writing it down. That is being efficient with my time.
Roland Martin
Instead of going to college, I spent my time out on the road learning how to be a better musician.

My time at Komen has been well publicized and scrutinized, especially my departure over the funding of Planned Parenthood.
Karen Handel
I do not waste my time writing pot-boilers: the pot must be boiled, and even my pot au feu has some chunks of fresh meat in it. …I have no time to boil myself down; and anyhow I could not do so and preserve all the necessary nutriment and the flavoring on which the digestibility depends.
George Bernard Shaw
Everybody has a cartoon of themselves. Mine is: I write very fast, and I’m ruthlessly efficient with my time.
David Remnick
I think back to my time in children’s television, back in the 1970s, and the amount of innovation that was going on then. Because the mass market wasn’t focused on it, so you had a freedom to do amazing things, like ‘Vision On,’ and ‘Tiswas.’
Sylvester McCoy
I feel like I spend most of my time in a state of writer’s block! When things do come out, they come out quickly.

Only when the clock stops does time come to life

Clemence Poesy
I’ve done a bit of Latin in my time…but I can control it.
Eddie Izzard
I focus for periods of time on creative work and I’m very insular during those times – not a lot of socializing. I play when I want. That means I can take off on a retreat, catch a matinee, make friends. My core desired feelings are my time management system.
Danielle LaPorte
I think I’ve wasted some of my time, but used most of it well, and have realized that my life is not separate from other people’s lives or from the universe. I think our moments of happiness really come from a feeling of unity.

Sheila Heti
I tend to be pretty efficient with my time. I work on a novel for four to five hours a day, and then the rest of my day is spent doing other things, whether it’s spending time with my family, or going through and making notes on the script, or working on the marketing. It’s just a matter of scheduling.
Nicholas Sparks
The older I get the more I try not to waste my time on negative energy.

Jonathan Richman
I’m not much for sitting around and thinking about the past or talking about the past. What does that accomplish? If I can give young people something to think about, like the future, that’s a better use of my time.
Arnold Palmer

John James Audubon

Charles Oakley
The vast majority of my time is traveling and talking about the issues. It isn’t really calling and asking for money.

William McDonough
I was thinking, that when my time comes, I should be sorry if the only plea I had to offer was that of justice. Because it might mean that only justice would be meted out to me.
Agatha Christie
The toughest part of my career was at the 2011 World Cup and 2012 Olympics and wanting so much to play and physically contribute – but having to understand and realize that it’s just not my time.

Rod Coronado
I do not think about being beautiful. What I devote most of my time to is being healthy
Anne Bancroft
I will say, nothing in my time in the Senate has more surprised me than senators and House members want to weigh in on everything under the sun, but they do not want to weigh in on a clearly defined constitutional duty to declare war. It just stuns me.
Tim Kaine
I do not exactly remember at what period I started my museum which absorbed so much of my time.
Pierre Loti
Don’t say I want to lose 30 pounds in 30 days. Say, you know what I want to lose weight- say 30 pounds in three to six months for instance. But more importantly I want to knock out 20 pushups a day or I want to run a 3K a day and time myself, and try to beat my time every time every week.
Jackie Warner
I was a solid C student because I was doing so many plays. I was a drama nerd, but I was also kind of a Zelig-like character; I would shift between different groups of people. But the people I spent most of my time with were either chorus or swing choir or the drama nerds.
John C. Reilly
As a PC gaming enthusiast, a significant chunk of my time and money was spent building and upgrading my rig, always in pursuit of a better gaming experience. At some point, I decided to take a look past my three 3D monitors and figure out what the absolute best theoretical gaming setup would be.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Back in my time, and I sound old now, it was black and white boots and that was it. Now you’ve got snoods, people wearing headphones when they are doing interviews, which I find disrespectful, pink boots, green boots, you name it they’ve got it, tights – they’ll be wearing skirts next.

When blocked or defeated in an enterprise I had much at heart, I always turned immediately to another field of work where progress looked possible, biding my time for a chance to resume the obstructed road.
Charles William Eliot
I don’t do anything I don’t want to do. There are so many opportunities that come my way, but if there’s something out there that I don’t want to do, I truly don’t do it, because I have to maximize my time. If there’s truly an opportunity to be quiet and be by myself, I do it.
Michael Strahan
I look back and wonder why I wasted my time talking about fried potatoes with the great John Lennon. But that’s what was so fabulous about him – he was very down to earth.
Kiki Dee
They made a three-hour ‘Raw,’ but two hours is about my time limit. I ain’t got that kind of attention span.

Richard A. Falk
When I was a kid I loved to read, but I didn’t write and I didn’t create imaginary worlds. So, if one student walks away thinking, “She’s obviously just an ordinary person, yet she gets to make her living doing what she wants to do. Maybe that applies to me, too,” then I feel like my time has been well spent.
Kate DiCamillo
I removed the window [tattoo] because, while I used to spend all my time looking out through windows wishing to be outside, I now live there all the time.
Angelina Jolie
In front of the camera and in front of the lens, there’s no lawsuits, there’s no agent, and there’s most frequently no time limits… There’s a longevity that’s kind of built into it. I spend most of my time behind the scenes, and when it is time to perform, I’m genuinely delighted to do it.
David Lee Roth
What I need to do is relax, take my time, and make my shots count. That will give me more energy later in the fights but also allow me to throw the punches harder.
Joseph Parker
I think I was on this very straightforward escalator – grammar school, high school, college, get a job on Wall Street, kind of everything leads to the next thing. But at what point do you get to step back and say, ‘I’d like to take a broader view of my time on this planet?’
Tom Steyer
I loved every minute of my time at Microsoft, but I had always envisioned having another phase of life just because I thought that would be interesting. It had never been my plan to work until I literally didn’t want to do anything and then hang it up.
Steve Ballmer
I try to manage my time to conserve energy.
Karen Duffy
Running is my time for myself. I’m like, ‘I’m going for a run!’ and my husband knows I’m out of there.
Laila Ali
It is astonishing to think that millions of people in my time—now, too, I suppose—actually thought that at a given moment in history two human beings had evolved to a higher state than that of all the gods that ever were or ever will be. This is titanism, as the Greeks would say. This is madness.
Gore Vidal
My life is very simple. I like simplicity and for my time to be my own, so that I have the freedom to devote the majority of it to Islam.
Hakeem Olajuwon
Me being a rapper takes up too much of my time. I can’t really do the things I need to do, but I need the money.
Fivio Foreign
“My good fellow,” retorted Mr. Boffin, “you have my word; and how you can have that, without my honour too, I don’t know. I’ve sorted a lot of dust in my time, but I never knew the two things go into separate heaps.”
Charles Dickens
I know the responsibility that entails from telling a story. The one thing I despise the most is when I go to a movie and I see a whole bunch of lazy actors making me waste my time and money.
Zoe Saldana
I don’t want no lies, I don’t watch TV. I don’t waste my time, won’t read a magazine.
Madonna Ciccone
My confidence has been really building since my time at Espanyol.
Philippe Coutinho
I didn’t know a time when there wasn’t a war because I spent all my time from the age of two or three to eight in a coal cellar really.
David Bailey
I’m estranged from social media and I don’t really deal with it. I tried to work on a website and it took up all my time. People wanted me to have a Twitter account and I spent the whole day figuring out what would be the first message. I still haven’t wrapped my head around it.
Patti Smith
I occupy much of my time in theological studies for which I have a natural inclination.
Cole Younger
My time at the Denver Public Schools taught me there is no harder, or more important, job than being a teacher.
Michael Bennet
I was useless in the classroom; I would spend my time looking out of the window after the first 10 minutes. But when you do an apprenticeship, you don’t have to wait for the teacher to tell you when it’s time to start, because you are on the shop floor learning for real.
Theo Paphitis
I must admit that outside the university, it is difficult to be a pure mathematician. No one in my family understands what I do. My neighbors wonder why I spend all my time in my study scribbling with pencil on a yellow pad of paper instead of going outside to mow the lawn.
Isadore Singer
I’ve honed in on three questions that I ask myself when I’m evaluating where to spend my time. Is this something that I’m passionate about, is it purposeful, and will I have impact? And if I can’t answer ‘yes’ to all three questions, then I have to sit back and ask, ‘Is it really that important?’
Mindy Grossman
There’s no point thinking about dying, because it’s going to happen anyway, isn’t it? I don’t waste my time worrying about that.
I can’t even see me wasting my time or my talent to disrespect another black man.
The Notorious B.I.G.
I was raised by a single mom. I spent most of my time in daycare.
Jon Hamm
I’m a woman, of course I still have curves on me, and that’s ok. I had a baby and I’ve worked hard. And I don’t think women should have to feel that kind of pressure. I’ve done it really healthfully, and I took my time.
Lily Aldridge
My time is always divided when I prepare for a wire walk. First I dream, technically and artistically, and then I go to work, and I am the master rigger, climbing trees and ladders and constructing. Only then I change my cap and become the performer.
Philippe Petit
It seems so much of my time and my energy have been focused on making or trying to make other people love me. The unspoken belief was that if I could make myself lovable to others I would feel loved….The truth is, I can only feel loved by others when I love myself.
Kimberly Kirberger
I’m fundamentally a busy person; I spend my time doing useful things and profoundly useless things!
Romola Garai
Your greatest resource is your time.
Brian Tracy
The protocol things, the officialdom, are part of my work. But it doesn’t take more than 20 percent of my time. The majority of my time I spend on issues that I care about.
Queen Rania of Jordan
My accountant tells me I can’t be a California resident anymore. I spend too much of my time in New York.
Phil Jackson
A lot of my friends growing up were hunters, but I spent all my time on the ice hurting actual humans playing hockey. I never had the chance to run through the woods and shoot at a moose or deer. I was shooting pucks at goaltender’s heads.
Kevin Durand
I’ve been around a long time, and when I was at the top of the hill, I was very ahead of my time! Evidence of that is that my music is still current today – you know, rappers sample it all the time. So, rather than compromise my artistic integrity, I concentrated on movies.
Isaac Hayes
I spend most of my time speaking to people who totally disagree with me. I speak to gays, I speak to atheists, I speak to secularists, I speak to Muslims because I am trying to build a bridge between my heart and theirs so Jesus can walk across and they can come to know Christ.
Rick Warren
When faced with structural injustice, especially in the form of oppressive military occupations, I have a tendency get a little worked up. So I was interested in learning more about the complicated conflict and decided I would lend some of my time and energy to do so.
Adam Beach
There are millions of people who do want help. I’m not going to waste my time convincing people who aren’t receptive.
Jillian Michaels
I think I spend most of my time not living in reality, actually.
Andy Serkis
Argh… I could be better with my time. I like to be punctual, but I could be better.
Kelly Rowland
My favorite part of the experience of serving in Congress is knowing that my time and effort are spent for the greater good and for the betterment of our nation.
Jared Polis
Our culture is obsessed with being busy, and I think it’s crazy. I don’t fill all my time.
Frazey Ford
There are many who would take my time. I shun them.
There are some who share my time. I am entertained by them.
Anton Szandor LaVey
I know, for me, you know, my generation – I never would have known anything about Robert Preston’s performance in ‘The Music Man’ if there hadn’t been a film where he played the part. I just heard how great he was on Broadway way before my time.
John Lloyd Young
I try to do one thing at a time to utilise my time well.
Gwyneth Paltrow
First of all, I have to have trucks because I live most of my time on a horse farm, so I’ve gotta have trucks. It’s in the northeast; I’ve got to have pickup trucks to move snow, number one. Number two, just if I’m driving, I don’t have to have an SUV, but I want a big car.
Denis Leary
I think one day I can make a book about coffee shops in Hong Kong. I spent almost most of my time in coffee shops, in different coffee shops.
Wong Kar-wai
Sachin Tendulkar is, in my time, the best player without doubt
Brian Lara
If my time on earth were through and she must face the world without me, is the love I gave her in the past gonna be enough to last?
Garth Brooks
I spend most of my time at concerts hoping for that one second that the artist looks at me, I look at the artist, and that’s when I get to say, ‘Thank you.’
Garth Brooks
I spent most of my time thinking, because I didn’t have enough energy to do anything else.
Banana Yoshimoto
I’m a man of some intelligence. I’ve had some education, passed the bar, practiced law. I’ve been a teacher and I deal with men of substance, statesman, business leaders, the clergy… So why do I spend my time arguing with Dizzy Dean?
Branch Rickey
The bracelet says ‘Fear Nothing.’ It was given to me by my friends, and it was made for me and my friends during the period of time that I was going through chemotherapy. And I still wear it, because it’s a great reminder of friendship and how my buddies and others came together in my time of need.
Joe Lhota
I have won many trophies in my time, but nothing will ever top helping win the battle for peace in my country.
Didier Drogba
When I became the chair of the British Film Institute, I didn’t understand how much of my time would be taken up with trying to make a case for the British Film Institute: what it’s for, why it exists, why it needs its money.
Anthony Minghella
Both my best and worst memories are of my time in Nicaragua. The experience as a whole was totally redeeming and amazing. It sounds so cliche, but I don’t care because I’m saying that from the heart. I stayed with a host family and went back to the same kind of rural farming village outside of Managua.
Eden Sher
When my time to die comes an angel will be there to comfort me. He will give me peace and joy even at that most critical hour, and usher me into the presence of God, and I will dwell with the Lord forever. Thank God for the ministry of His blessed angels.
Billy Graham
You find yourself in this place where you really get to find out what you’re made of, and what I found was that when I was at my time of greatest need, there were people who appeared in my life, and helped me through it.
Kathy Mattea
My name had gone stale, and no matter how progressive I got, it was my time to die.
Joni Mitchell
We moved from the East coast to the town of Spokane, Washington, when I was about 13 years old, and I did not adapt very well to the, to the style of the place, and I spent most of my time in the public library.
Irwin Rose
I’m very happy doing what I’m doing; I don’t think I’m prepared to devote my time to politics. When I am, I’d like to give it 100%. I’m not in the frame of mind, and I’m too greedy an actor to do that.
Anupam Kher
I am not one of the great journalists of my time.
Jane Pauley
I am more mature. I’m a better football player. I just feel like this is my time.
Ricky Williams
Time is the coin of life. Only you can determine how it will be spent.
Carl Sandburg
It could be hectic sometimes when you’re being an artist and running a label at the same time. But there are times when you just have to say that this my time period to work on my stuff, and then you say this is the time to concentrate on my artists.
Missy Elliott
A lot of my time was spent searching, thinking and planning my life.
Ryan White
I have a healthy respect for those individuals and the businesses that they represent. Their involvement only solidifies my belief that the United Way is a worthy organization to donate my time and efforts to.
Bill Vaughan
What do you imagine the American people would think of me if I wasted my time going to the ball game?
Grover Cleveland
An hour of my time is a tiny price to pay for all the support I’ve gotten from my fans.
Erik Estrada
Due to a life of training and playing, I seem to spend half my time in the shower.
Jonny Wilkinson
I spent a good amount of my time – like a lot of guys my age – obsessing and blowing things up with G.I. Joes. I know it well.
D. J. Cotrona
I knew I could control one thing, and that is my time and my hours and my effort and my efficiency.
Ryan Seacrest
I spend a lot of my time just looking at words and grammar and writing things down that I don’t know.
John Grant
Sachin Tendulkar is in my time the best player without doubt – daylight second, Brian Lara third.
Shane Warne
I’ve loved all of my time here.
Tabitha King
So for a year I spent all my time hiding from Jack Charlton in the car park practising my skills.
Craig Johnston
You can be a good person without any racial intent and still want to keep the flag. That’s what I learned in my time in the south.
Sean Hannity
Never regret trusting someone. It proves you have a heart. But if he turns out to be a lying worm … I’m not going to waste my time crying. Because I am way too fabulous for that.
Judy Blundell
Even if the technology advances, I don’t expect we will be allowed to sail around with 400-meter long container ships weighing 200,000 tonnes without any human beings on board. I don’t think it will be a driver of efficiency – not in my time.
Soren Skou
I will never say never, but I can tell you right now – I am perfectly happy with being who I am. I just – I really – I’m an entertainer, and the thing that I’d decided to work on was my career, and I decided the energy that I was putting in certain relationships – I was really kind of wasting my time, and I knew it.
Loni Love
When I was nine I spent a lot of my time reading books about the history of comedy, or listening to the Goons or Hancock, humour from previous generations.
Paul Merton
People perceive me as a commodity. They just don’t think anything of asking for five minutes of my time. It never occurs to them that if they’re asking for it and another thousand people are asking, I don’t have 1,000 five minutes to give.
Stephen Jay Gould
Putting all of my time In learning to care And a bucket of rhymes I threw up somewhere Want a locket of who Made me lose my perfunctory view Of all that is around And of all that I do.
Rufus Wainwright
Ne reprenez, dame, si j’ai aime , Si j’ai senti mille torches ardentes, Mille travaux, mille douleurs mordantes, Si, en pleurant, j’ai mon temps consume . Do not blame me, madam, if I loved, If I felt one thousand burning torches, One thousand labours, or one thousand scathing pains, If, in crying, I spent all my time.
Louise Labe
I divide my time badly.
Antonio Banderas
You know what it would just be amazing to be remembered, you know like a mum telling a daughter ‘the boyband of my time, One Direction, they just had fun and they’re just normal guys but terrible, terrible dancers.’
Louis Tomlinson
Success is just being able to do what I love for a living, spend all my time doing it, connect with fans, and continue that for a long f – king time.
I’ve met an attractive weasel or two in my time. He looks more like a rat.” -pg.170-
Cassandra Clare
During my time as England captain I have always been both helpful and direct in my communications with the ECB.
Kevin Pietersen
I’m a little bit of a weirdo – I’m kind of a loner, I didn’t go to college, I spend a lot of my time reading. I’ve been working since I was 17, so that’s sort of been my life.
Zosia Mamet
In my time abroad, I learned to become a more complete player.
Christen Press
I lived in Japan for about two years. I spent my time equally between religiously studying Aikido in Shinjuku by day and hard partying in Shibuya and Roppongi by night. On more than a few nights, those subways were my own personal stage coach to hell.
Sturgill Simpson
I’ll fight when needed, revel when there’s an occasion, mourn when there is greif and die if my time comes…But I will not let anyone use me against my will.
Christopher Paolini
The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
Calvin Coolidge
I’m not a super-actorly actor, my-body-is-an-instrument type of person, but I do want to do fun, exciting, interesting things. I have a 2001 PT Cruiser. I saved my money so I can take my time and choose something that I think is great, and that’s what I’m waiting for.
Paget Brewster
I was a very happy child, so to speak. But, since we didn’t have video games or television, and very little radio, in terms of a form of entertainment, I used to read a lot and I would draw a lot, and those two things used to occupy my time.
A lot of my time is spent reading antique or out-of-print books of reference.
John Hodgman
I honestly believe there are good things happening in this world, and I’ll spend most of my time trying to find them and bring them to light.
Jesse L. Martin
I started writing poetry when I was 12 years old and also undertook vocal training since a young age. However, it was only during my time at the University of Oxford did the musician in me came alive.
Ananya Birla
As frustrating as my time in grad school felt, it also helped tremendously because it challenged me to figure out what it was I thought I wanted.
John D’Agata
Mostly, I just waste my time.
Syd Barrett
I would love to sit at home all day and play with my kids. It’s my favorite thing to do in my time off.
Buddy Valastro
When I get angry, I start thinking about the people involved and they don’t deserve my time.
Simon Weston
I think in terms of businesses, in terms of things that are really big and marry technology with entertainment. That’s where I like to spend my time.
Nolan Bushnell
I’ve seen many troubles in my time, only half of which ever came true.
Mark Twain
I enjoyed my time at L.S.U. I wouldn’t change it for anything. My dad went to college – my sisters, brothers – so I felt like I just had to, and I enjoyed it.
Ben Simmons
I am focused on what I am doing. I am enjoying my time in Formula One; I am enjoying the experience.
Lance Stroll
During my time in prison, I told myself that I wanted to be a part of the solution and not the problem.
Michael Vick
I proved for a long time how much I’ve given of my heart and of my time to the UFC.
Anderson Silva
I always had a sense of discipline in me. However, there was a time when I couldn’t divide my time properly between off-field things and on-field assignments. The focus would be missing at times, and that would affect my preparation for matches. I managed to change that.
Virat Kohli
If I were on a committee, I’d be wasting my time.
Marjorie Taylor Greene
There are still many different ways to get stuck, existentially stuck. Feeling like, “This is worthless. I’m wasting my time, and I would be wasting the time of someone who tried to read this.” It happens all the time.
Jonathan Safran Foer
You’re right, Halt,’ she said, and he nodded acklowledgement of her backing down. ‘Nice to hear someone else saying that for a change,’ Will said cheerfully. ‘Seems like I’ve said those words an awful lot in my time.’ Halt turned a bleak gaze on him. ‘And you’ve always been right.
John Flanagan
I took my time to learn the craft and procedure. I wanted to do some substantial work first in cinema.
Harshvardhan Rane
To the extent I can, I try to maintain a laser focus on what needs to get done from a priority standpoint. And not just from an urgency standpoint, but from a value-added standpoint. So where can I add the most value? Where is my time best spent?
Ivanka Trump
I try not to regret too much. I find that feeling guilty takes up so much of my time already.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
I came up during the ‘Star Wars’ generation and that was sort of the thing I plugged into much more. It was a little before my time and I think it was sort of grappling with these intellectual ideas that were a little advanced for my young mind. At the time. But now I have a much deeper appreciation for it.
Zachary Quinto
All I’ve tried to do (with my writing) is capture the essence of my time.
Robert Penn Warren
Time is the school in which we learn, time is the fire in which we burn.
Delmore Schwartz
Before me, my grandfathers, my uncles and my father were all boxers because Native Americans had to box in boarding schools. But in my time, when I grew up in Lawton Oklahoma, we didn’t have boxing. I was a wrestler.
George Tahdooahnippah
I have a history, even going back to my time in college doing plays, of always hurting myself at some point in whatever I’m in. Like, always! And it’s usually my own doing and me being rambunctious and going, ‘Oh, I can do that better,’ or ‘Oh, I can do that quicker,’ and it results in injury.
Cress Williams
For me, there was nothing like my time with the Eagles – ever. We were young, and the world was new to us. It was the happiest time of our lives. They wouldn’t let us play in their big leagues, but we had this game of ours… this marvelous, blessed game… and we just went out and played it.
Monte Irvin
I used to spend most of my time straining to be a nice guy so people would like me.
Elia Kazan
The process of getting conscious, for me, was a very, very uncomfortable, disturbing, and sometimes physically painful process. And so that’s the standard to which I write, because it was what I’ve experienced over my time.
Ta-Nehisi Coates
I do consider how I spend my time off carefully because I’ve got two kids.
Aidan Gillen
I don’t choose to analyze what I have done and I think that is the right choice, because then I won’t be spending my time creating.
Tori Amos
They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.
Andy Warhol
When it comes to time management, I talk a lot more about energy management. I try to give people 100% of my energy even if I’m giving them very little of my time.
Jay Shetty
If I spend all my time being upset about having lost a job, then the next however many auditions I have are going to be useless.
Henry Cavill
The citizens of Puerto Rico pay taxes with no representation every day, because Puerto Rico is not a state. And the rules only became more confusing the more I looked into them during my time there.
W. Kamau Bell
Having said that, I enjoyed every minute of my time and I got a degree of job satisfaction which I am sure was far greater than the majority of my colleagues.
Len G. Murray
My time at Yahoo, from its founding to the present, has encompassed some of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of my life.
Jerry Yang
I spent my time in Serie C: that’s a league that grinds you down and spits you out.
Maurizio Sarri
I love the company of actors, but the crazier it gets, the more I’ve come to realise how valuable my time is with my friends who work on the land or are builders or, you know, make music. Work in offices. Run shops.
Andrea Riseborough
It’s not the moment yet for me to enjoy my time as an actor, and as the time goes by, I feel that I need to push myself harder to pay back for all the good fortune that I have received.
Park Bo-gum
I loved my time in Congress, but people who spend all of their time planning to run for office have very few useful skills to deploy when they finally get there.
John Sununu
I believe I was ahead of my time.
Ike Turner
I haven’t many years left ahead of me and I must devote all my time to painting, in the hope of achieving something worthwhile in the end, something if possible that will satisfy me.
Claude Monet
Go your way, seducers, flatterers, idlers, those glib of tongue and charlatans; I am not a seed that you can force to grow; my goal differs so from yours that I would be wasting my time in trying to explain where my inclination drives me.
Dominique Fernandez
I spend most of my time wearing uncomfortable things, so for me, it’s all about trainers.
Cara Delevingne
I enjoy my time alone.
Stephanie Zimbalist
I then remained in Berlin until Dec. 1938, spending my time between pictures at my villa on the Riviera.
Pola Negri
Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough.
George Bernard Shaw
One day between takes on the ‘Oz’ set, I went into one of the cells and laid down and dozed off. When I woke up, I thought I was back in a federal pen. But I did my time, and today no one is more of a free man than Chuck Zito.
Chuck Zito
I’d been a terrific student. I hadn’t wasted a moment of my time in school, and I knew plenty about healing the troubled mind. But no one had taught me a thing about healing the soul
Diane Chamberlain
Even if I just change one kid’s life in my time on Earth, my life is complete. I’ll be happy with that. I’ll be satisfied with that.
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
In high school I spent most of my time in jeans and T-shirts or Juicy sweats. We’re such a laid-back town. I mean, people wore bikinis under their clothes half the time, so you didn’t really get dressed up to go to school.
Lauren Conrad
In my time, you needed to speak a little Italian, and that was it.
Juan Manuel Fangio
I take the toughest challenges and fight against the best women. With that attitude, I will always be doing something big. I’m light-years ahead of my time.
Claressa Shields
I want to spend my time with people who don’t look to be respected. But such good people won’t want to spend their time with me.
Osamu Dazai
Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana
Groucho Marx
I try to limit my time with Michael Davies to as little as possible per week, and he is pretty good with that, since he has a bazillion things to do. When I do see him, I try not to talk about dental work or anything like that because I know the Brits get very sensitive.
Katie Nolan
I spent a lot of my time working in the American module, and he would stay in the Russian segment working on his things, and we’d meet up at meal times. So it actually worked out very well.
Leroy Chiao
In my time at St. Mary’s College, drifting out of sports because it was something that began to feel really finite. And I could see that I didn’t have the passion to sustain a career in sports.
Mahershala Ali
I’m here to change the world, and if I am not, I am probably wasting my time.
Utah Phillips
What I will remember most from my time in NATO is meeting children in the countries where I’ve gone to, to Moscow and to Kiev, I’ve met school children.
Lord Robertson
I definitely caught a lot of backlash in my situation, not just from students but also from faculty, which was unfortunate, given that I was spending a lot of my time outside school working on a career, which a lot of people didn’t really agree with.
Jesse McCartney
With my time in the limelight, I regret that I didn’t use it more to push vegetarianism. I support vegetarian options in the school lunch program.
Bernhard Goetz
I’ve been pushed down many flights of stairs in my time, but I always manage to find an elevator
Chris Colfer
I spend 90 percent of my time saying no, and my accountant yells at me for it, but when I started in this business, I wanted my career to have legs.
Omar Epps
I support Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles through Disney Channel and Britti Cares International in support of children with various diseases and illnesses and donate my time with pride and dignity.
Kyle Massey
Somebody told me when Abe Lincoln was a young man, studying by firelight, he said, “I will work hard. I will prepare myself. And my time will come.” And you know, that’s exactly what I said about myself and football – What do you think? Were Abe and I both just lucky ducks?
Deacon Jones
It is impossible for me to waste my time in helping another person.
Wayne Dyer
I’m not sure I’d go back and do anything over in my life. I’ve definitely had my fair share of failures and moments where I wasted my time or that of other people, but if I did those moments over, I’d have missed out on so many lessons.
Trip Adler
I’m no saint, and I don’t want to come across like one, but there is not a day that goes by that I’m not doing something for someone else with a very large chunk of my time.
Andrew Zimmern
One of my passions is helping people understand the Word. I think the most important thing we should be thinking about is who created us and how we were created to live. So I thought that I want to spend a lot of my time actually studying God’s Word.
Trip Lee
There was a lot of great writing couples, but I try to do it all myself. And it was practically impossible, but I still managed to be ahead of my time.
Jackie DeShannon
I love deadlines. I like the whooshing noise they make as they go by.
Douglas Adams
I wanted to travel with my dad to be close to him again. Having babies and raising my own family took so much of my time, I didn’t have a chance to be with him very often.
Nancy Sinatra
You are being suffocated by tradition… Why don’t you say, ‘I am going to build a life for myself, for my time, and make it a work of art’? Your life isn’t a work of art —it’s a thirdhand Victorian whatnot shelf, complete with someone else’s collection of seashells and hand-carved elephants.
Kurt Vonnegut
I spend my time being a retailer, not an economist.
Mike Duke
When I first went public with my son Evan’s story, I just planned to talk about the ‘R’ word – Recovery. But soon I was spending most my time talking about the ‘V’ word – vaccines.
Jenny McCarthy
Many adults that I have met in my time believed that picture books are ‘babyish’. I hope I have changed minds on this, as I set out to do.
Anthony Browne
I’m definitely playing the best football of my time at Chelsea.
Ashley Cole
I am coming here to learn and contribute with my style of football. The most important thing for me in my time here is to win titles. My dream in this shirt is to make the fans happy, win trophies for them, and enjoy playing in the Barca colours.
Philippe Coutinho
My only prayer for my time with you is, “God I just want these men and women to long for you.”
Francis Chan
I’d like to continue being involved with issues that animated my time as attorney general – criminal-justice reform and civil rights especially. I don’t just want to give speeches; I’d like to involve myself in this work in a systematic way.
Eric Holder
Personally I estimate about a third of my time is spent on author events, social media and traditional publicity.
Sara Sheridan
Architecture and war are not incompatible. Architecture is war. War is architecture. I am at war with my time, with history, with all authority that resides in fixed and frightened forms.
Lebbeus Woods
I was given life because it was my time, and now I take leave of it according to the same law. Content with the natural sequence of these events, I am touched neither by joy nor by grief. I am simply hanging in the air … incapable of freeing myself, tied by the threads of things.
I had to become the greatest choreographer of my time. That was my mission, and that’s what I set out to do.
Twyla Tharp
If I were somebody who spent the majority of my time saying things that were harsh and difficult to hear, I would want my visual aesthetic to be something soft and feminine, warm and easy to be around.
Kerry Washington
Pain has no effect but to steal some of my time.
Margaret Fuller
When I was a child, a lot of my time was spent in Scotland because my mother’s Scottish, and we used to go up to Ayrshire and visit relations in a place called Dalry.
Jennifer Saunders
Having lost both my parents as a teenager, family is so important to me, and I cherish my time with my children and grandchildren. I have four children, and they all became lawyers – as I was myself before I got into music.
Clive Davis
I’ve been working in the music industry since I was 15 years old, and I feel like I’ve always been ahead of my time.
Wynter Gordon
I have made more documentaries in my time than I think I care to remember, though I am immensely proud of all my work.
Charles Guggenheim
A lot of the best work I’ve ever done started out as something completely different because I gave myself permission to have space around my time and expectations.
Merlin Mann
Whenever I can, I like to go to Cotswolds, in England, where my husband had a cottage. I spend my time reading his diaries, which I would like to publish.

I need my time to be lonely.
Jose Mourinho
I’ve gotten tons of awards and I believe when it’s my time to get a Grammy, I’ll get a Grammy.
Nicki Minaj
No, I do not want to sacrifice four days for two games. My time is too valuable to do that
Anatoly Karpov
My biographers… would like to have my time at the court almost complete before they finish the book. We decided… to flip the order.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
My time at Honda was amazing. Some of my best times in Formula One, actually. I might not have won races, just one race, but I had a lot of fun.
Jenson Button
I spend most of my time reading non-fiction of all sorts. Then poetry. Then fiction to blurb. Then fiction I want to read.
Jim Shepard
Please, all you MCs out there, all you fans out there, don’t think Big gonna make a record dissing 2Pac or the West Coast because it’s not going down like that. I cant even see me wasting my time or my talent to disrespect another black man.
The Notorious B.I.G.
My time at Real Madrid wasn’t a failure. I played 120 matches, I scored 28 goals, and I played an average of 30 games a season. What’s more, I won three trophies: La Liga, a Copa del Rey, and a Supercopa de Espana.
I think, if I had my choice, I would spend all my time in the studio writing, and creating music.
Zach Condon
I really enjoyed my time in Germany but didn’t actually win anything.
Roberto Firmino
I’m a workaholic, I always try to fill my time with projects.
Teresa Palmer
I’m always ready for the enemy to come over the hill. I’m packed and set to go. That comes from my time in the army. I used to travel in a tank, but now it’s a tour bus going to safer places.
James Blunt
Certainly my time on ‘Revenge’ was great; it was a different character I’d never played before.
Justin Hartley
Miles from nowhere. Guess I’ll take my time.
Cat Stevens
Books, the books that I loved above all else to spend my time with, were the great tools for understanding one’s life and the lives of other people.
Ellen Douglas
There is more to life than increasing its speed.
Mahatma Gandhi
In my time and neighborhood (and in my soul) there was only one standard by which a woman measured success: did some man want her?
Jessamyn West
My first two years in the CFL, all I thought of was getting back to the NFL – it was like ‘I’ll put my time in up here and go back.’ Then I went and signed a nice contract in Calgary and was like, ‘Hey, I can make a living up here, this is great football, and I’m having a blast.’
Doug Flutie
As a wife, daughter, friend, and the founder and CEO of LearnVest, my schedule is anything but simple. But I learned early on how meticulously manage my time.
Alexa Von Tobel
I’ve never told anyone this before, but I’m an obsessive-compulsive. I go back to my hotel room every evening and put the coat hangers back in order and open my bag and rearrange it. It takes a lot of my time, but if I don’t do it I can’t sleep.
Freida Pinto
During my time in Washington, I have become increasingly frustrated by the power held by the gun lobby.
Mike Quigley
I think the audiences in Chicago are really open. They’re engaged and eager, and they don’t feel cynical to me. Sometimes in New York, there’s a sense of, ‘Prove it to me; prove this is worth my time.’ I never felt that in Chicago.
Joe Mantello
In my relationship with God, I’ve learned that if I follow a ‘formula’ for how I spend my time with Him, then I’m just accomplishing a checklist of things I feel obligated to do to please Him. This makes my spiritual life more about doing what I need to do to fulfill an obligation than something meaningful.
Joyce Meyer
What I am looking for is a masterpiece. I don’t want to waste my time. I am tired of experiments.
Natalia Makarova
I always have said that the most valuable thing I have isn’t money; it’s my time.
Chris Paul
I do not love to be printed on every occasion, much less to be dunned and teased by foreigners about mathematical things or to be thought by our own people to be trifling away my time about them when I should be about the king’s business.
Isaac Newton
I loved my time at OSU. It was unbelievable experience, and I’m definitely going to miss it.
Peter Uihlein
Now that I near 80, I realize with wistful pleasure that on many occasions I was 10, 20, 40, even 50 years ahead of my time.
Benoit Mandelbrot
I knew Manuel Pellegrini from my time in Spain. I’d only heard good things about him, that he was someone who instilled the confidence in his players to go out and play good, attacking football.
Sergio Aguero
I spend 90% of my time with people who don’t report to me, which also allows for serendipity, since I’m walking around the office all the time. You don’t have to schedule serendipity. It just happens.
Jack Dorsey
I had spent my time counterfeiting eternity.
Jean-Paul Sartre
You know, I’ve sold a lot of bad movies in my time.
Dan Aykroyd
Time is life. Anyone who wastes my time is killing me. Please don’t!
Phyllis Chesler
When you’re a young actor, there’s this pressure to rush. But I hope to be doing this into my sixties and seventies, so I’d prefer to take my time.
Felicity Jones
The decision was strictly based on my interest of living and working in Singapore. I am obligated and I will pay hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes to the American government. I already paid and I will keep paying whatever taxes I owe based on my time as a U.S. citizen.
Eduardo Saverin
Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.
Benjamin Franklin
I want to find something really wonderful to do next and take my time to search through the dearth of great material, especially for women.
Emily Blunt
My first two years in the CFL, all I thought of was getting back to the NFL – it was like ‘I’ll put my time in up here and go back.’ Then I went and signed a nice contract in Calgary and was like, ‘Hey, I can make a living up here, this is great football, and I’m having a blast.
Doug Flutie
I felt for a long time that this is what I want to do so I’m happy at this point to just take my time and work on projects that I feel strongly about, and the rest of the time just live my life
Jennifer Connelly
Chater: You dare to call me that. I demand satisfaction! Septimus: Mrs Chater demanded satisfaction and now you are demanding satisfaction. I cannot spend my time day and night satisfying the demands of the Chater family.
Tom Stoppard
I could spend all my time on a plane visiting multiple countries, and I would never visit enough.
Pierre Nanterme
Time is the wisest counselor of all.
I’m not looking to… I’d like to build my company and make a bigger company always, but I think in the behind the scenes arena is where I’d prefer to spend my time.
Joel Silver
As a wife, daughter, friend, and the founder and CEO of LearnVest, my schedule is anything but simple. But I learned early on how to meticulously manage my time.
Alexa Von Tobel
I’m a permanently curious person. I probably waste my time being curious about things that have got nothing to do with the business sometimes. What keeps me alive, certainly, is curiosity.
Rupert Murdoch
The selection rules are the same for everybody. I am trying to make a comeback just like some other players who got dropped after the Pakistan tour. I hope my time will come.
Sourav Ganguly
The only thing that matters is the theater!
Lily Rabe
My time in high school and college, more than 30 years ago, has been ridiculously distorted.
Brett Kavanaugh
The question I ask myself like almost every day is: ‘Am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?’ Unless I feel like I’m working on the most important problem that I can help with, then I’m not going to feel good about how I’m spending my time. And that’s what this company is.
Mark Zuckerberg
I was able to turn my hobby into my profession, and I am thankful for that. But I have other interests beside football, and I can devote my time to them now.
Michael Ballack
I never killed anybody and I never developed an intense level of hatred for the enemy. Because my war ended before I ever put on a uniform; I was on active duty all my time at school; I killed my enemy there.
John Knowles
If I spent all my time fearing the things I should, I’d never stop screaming.
Jessica Shirvington
I was meticulously copying other art and then I realized I could just use a camera and put my time into an idea instead.
Cindy Sherman
I spend most of my time assuming the world is not ready for the technology revolution that will be happening to them soon.
Eric Schmidt
I’m spending all my time and energy on the project at hand.
Eric Bana
I believe in the brotherhood of man, all men, but I don’t believe in brotherhood with anybody who doesn’t want brotherhood with me. I believe in treating people right, but I’m not going to waste my time trying to treat somebody right who doesn’t know how to return the treatment.
Malcolm X
Anytime I prepare a meal for my family, I am putting all of my time, effort, energy, and love into it.
Ayesha Curry
I get so nervous. I happen to be socially awkward and shy. I spent a lot of my time as an adult not going places.
Christina Ricci
I was not trying to be shocking, or to be a pioneer. I wasn`t trying to change society, or to be ahead of my time. I didn`t think of myself as liberated, and I don`t believe that I did anything important. I was just myself. I didn`t know any other way to be, or any other way to live.
Bettie Page
Time is nature’s way of keeping everything from happening at once.
Woody Allen
Of course I have used dissonance in my time, but there has been too much dissonance. Bach used dissonance as good salt for his music. Others applied pepper, seasoned the dishes more and more highly, till all healthy appetites were sick and until the music was nothing but pepper.
Sergei Prokofiev
Don’t get me wrong, I am a proud Republican, and I want to support my party. I am a firm believer in the Republican principles of smaller government, low taxes and economic freedom. I have spent my time in government service fighting for these principles.
David Schweikert
We must use time as a tool, not as a couch.
John F. Kennedy
I naturally believe there will be a future, but I do not waste my time imagining its radiant beauty. … It seems to me that we ought to think first about the present. Even if the present is desperately dark, I do not wish to leave it. Will tomorrow be free from darkness? We’ll talk about that tomorrow.
Lu Xun
I enjoyed my time in the WRAF. There were plenty of people at the airfields where I worked, and they were all very good company.
Florence Green
It is my private life which no one knows anything about, nor ever will. It needs more than half my time if it is to be a success.
Marlene Dietrich
After my time in Holland, an inner battle ensued in which I tried to free myself from the influence of Schinkelesque classicism.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
I enjoyed my time on the Biggest Loser ranch. Although I will not be returning as a full-time trainer on season 13, I will always be a part of ‘The Biggest Loser’ family and my commitment to bettering lives through health and fitness will continue.
Anna Kournikova
I appreciate the few people who say nice things about me and say, ‘Gee, you were right about this,’ or, ‘You were right about that.’ But frankly, I spend my time looking ahead. I’ve got 23 grandkids, and I’m concerned about what their world is going to be like.
Mitt Romney
Time is my enemy. Time will catch up with me vocally. And I dread that. I dread to think about life without singing.
Tom Jones
However, I spent most of my time in a Quaker school.
Brian De Palma
I remember my time growing up. It was a little bit difficult because the Soviet Union was broken.
Gennady Golovkin
I’m so proud of my time in karate and what I achieved. It’s part of me, so I don’t want to leave it behind.
I am not opposed to the white race as charged by my enemies. I have no time to hate any one. All my time is devoted to the up-building and development of the Negro Race.
Marcus Garvey
I think people have this idea that I just lived in my place in England and never left. During ‘Looking,’ I was in America for four years. I’ve got a green card. I spend half my time there. It doesn’t feel like an alien world at all.
Andrew Haigh
You’re quite right there,” he said. “I have practiced abstinence myself for years, and had my time of fasting, too, but now I find myself once more beneath the sign of Aquarius, a dark and humid constellation.
Hermann Hesse
I spend a lot of my time looking into people’s bags and handbags – with their permission, of course.
Jan Chipchase
I’ve got a long way to go to being the ultimate best, but I think my time is now. And I’m starting to enter my prime.
Kevin Durant
I always had the uncomfortable feeling that if I wasn’t sitting in front of a computer typing, I was wasting my time – but I pushed myself to take a wider view of what was “productive.” Time spent with my family and friends was never wasted.
Gretchen Rubin
I served in all commissioned ranks from a second Lieutenant to a Major General. And during that time, I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street, and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism.
Smedley Butler
I reckon that for all the use it has been to science about four-fifths of my time has been wasted, and I believe this to be the common lot of people who are not merely playing follow-my-leader in research.
Peter Medawar
I truly understand that there is a lesson in everything that happens to us. So I tried not to spend my time asking “Why did this happen to me?” but trying to figure out why I had chosen this.
Oprah Winfrey
It will shock many – I’ve lived a full life and really enjoyed my time as a pop star.
Belinda Carlisle
Everybody is going to have their moment. I recognize that when my time comes, it’s going to be nobody else’s time. Nobody is going to have my moment, and I will be a superstar.
Tyron Woodley
I don’t spend my time on farms. I don’t like the smell, to be honest.
Doja Cat
I would love to spend all my time writing to you; I’d love to share with you all that goes through my mind, all that weighs on my heart, all that gives air to my soul; phantoms of art, dreams that would be so beautiful if they could come true.
Luigi Pirandello
It got to the point where most of my time went toward writing novels. I would still occasionally write short stories, but only when I was commissioned by an editor to write for a themed anthology or special issue.
Tim Pratt
I don’t miss teaching. I’m learning to take my time for myself.
Seamus Heaney
If I had my time again and was able to change one thing from my career then I wouldn’t have retired. I would have played for Wales longer.
Gary Speed
I’m a person that thinks time is very precious and our only commodity… It’s so upsetting when I feel like something has wasted my time.
Lorene Scafaria
I don’t work all the time. That’s why I waited to have children until I was ready for that. I try to organise my time according to them because they need me. I don’t want to put my work first anymore because it’s not as important as my children.
Monica Bellucci
No secret that for some years – long before my time – Komen was dealing with a controversy regarding Planned Parenthood grants.
Karen Handel
It takes up enough of my time and interest just working on comedy. I just enjoy it and love doing it.
Jerry Seinfeld
I will die Before My Time. Because I feel the shadow’s Depth. So much I wanted to accomplish. before I reached my Death
Tupac Shakur
I learned everything about fashion during my time at the ‘NY Times.
George Kotsiopoulos
Well, not totally because over the years I’ve probably done 2,700 commercials. So, I’m always ticking. And in a way that was a huge advantage because I was able to take my time choosing my film subjects because I wasn’t relying on the fear of not being able to work.
Ridley Scott
I’m reminded everyday that I was born to do great things, I believe that and when it’s my time I shall.
Aeriel Miranda
There is a time for everything, also for my time in politics which has been long and eventful. Now I believe it is time for others to take the baton that was passed to me following the crash. I have therefore decided to leave political life at the end of this term.
Johanna Siguroardottir
When my time on earth is done and my activities here are past, I want them to bury me upside down, so my critics can kiss my ass.
Bobby Knight
There were many good actresses in my time like Jane Powell and Debbie Reynolds, but I was the only dancer.
Leslie Caron
I began to think that my time had come, as the saying is.
Buffalo Bill
I’m a very compulsive person, so I spend most of my time drawing or writing my diary, patching things up and carving bits of wood – I’ve carved two of my guitars.
Lou Doillon
My time in the World Rally Championship has been a useful stage in my career, but I can’t deny the fact that my hunger for F1 has recently become overwhelming.
Kimi Raikkonen
I like my time on earth. And no matter what kind of cards I’ve been dealt, I’m happy to be there.
Patti Smith
