"One thing I’d dearly love to have is an hourglass, or a collection of them. Some that measure minutes, some that measure hours and some that measure the whole day. And grandfather clocks! Pocket watches. The thing I like most about time is it is not real. It’s all in the head. Sure it’s a useful trick if you want to meet someone at a specific place in the universe; have tea or coffee – but that’s all it is. It’s a trick. There is no such thing as a past, it exists only in the memory. There is no such thing as the future, it exists only in our imagination. If our watches were truly accurate the only thing that they would ever say is – ‘now’." "Live without pretending, Love without depending, Listen without defending, Speak without offending." "It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived" "In the end it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years"
