time

A Quote by Robert Grudin on discomfort, waiting, time, and anticipation

In the landscape of time, there are few locations less comfortable than that of one who waits for some person or event to arrive at some unknown moment in the future.

We pamper the present like a spoiled child, obeying its superficial demands but ignoring its real needs.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on freedom, time, past, present, future, action, habit, lives, and life

Free men and women... can think across time, viewing their own lives, inclusive of past, present, and future, as architectural wholes, static in mental space. They can therefore see, as others cannot, the cracks and buttresses of repeated action, the points of stress, the established framework. They are not perfect; but they are less imperfect than we by a full dimension of being.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on time, greatness, and details

The extent to which we live from day to day, from week to week, intent on details and oblivious to larger presences, is a gauge of our impoverishment in time.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on experience, time, night, evening, awareness, duality, temporalilty, and travel

In a railroad car at nightfall, when the natural light outside has diminished until it is even with the artificial light inside, the passenger facing forward sees in his window two images at once: the dim landscape rushing toward him out of a pit of darkness, and the interior of the car, reflected with its more or less motionless occupants. At this hour most passengers unconsciously give allegiance to one of these two polarities of vision; and the individual momentarily aware of both may be struck by the profound, almost tragic duality between outer and inner worlds, between the rush of experience and the immobility of awareness.

A Quote by Robert Grudin on time, art, temporality, and statue

Like students of art who walk around a great statue, seeing parts and aspects of it from each position, but never the whole, we must walk mentally around time, using a variety of approaches, a pandemonium of metaphor.

A Quote by Eckhart Tolle on mind, ego, time, identity, self, and enlightenment

To be identified with your mind is to be trapped in time: the compulsion to live almost exclusively through memory and anticipation.

Life is now. There was never a time when your life was not now, nor will there ever be.

A Quote by Byron Katie on transcendence, enlightenment, freedom, and time

So there's only transcendence in the moment. Nobody can be transcended forever. That's why I say, "Who cares if you're enlightened forever?"
