Have a Tormented Day

"No little part of the torment of existence is that Time is continually pressing upon us, never letting us catch our breath but always coming after us, like a taskmaster with a whip."
- Schopenhauer (as quoted in The Corrections)

By the looks of your post today, it is clearly a Monday! But it's all in how we see it, right? Maybe we should take a more optimistic approach to "Time" and it's passage like in these famous quotes:

You will never “find” time for anything. If you want time, you must make it. -Charles Bruxton

Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein. -H. Jackson Brown

The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot. -Michael Altshuler

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. -Carl Sandburg

In truth, people can generally make time for what they choose to do; it is not really the time but the will that is lacking. -Sir John Lubbock

Thanks, but I'll stay in my funk for another day two if you don't mind...

LOL!! Schopenhauer, like me, was at the end of the quarter trying to get everything turned in and his spouse kept asking about the Christmas decorations!!

Spiced warm drinks with a kick are a great way to beat the winter blahs.
