In this article you'll find a collection of Swami Vivekananda's quotations on time (Hindi: समय, Bengali: সময়).
  • All time is in us, we are not in time.[Source]
  • As particles of matter combine in space, so mind-waves combine in time.[Source]
  • Birth, growth, development, decay, death—this is the sequence in all nature and is the same in the plant and the man. The difference is only in time.[Source]
  • Doing the duty of the time is the best way, and if it is done only as a duty, it does not make us attached.[Source]
  • Each man who thinks ahead of his time is sure to be misunderstood.[Source]
  • Everything in time, space, and causation is bound.[Source]
  • "कालः सुप्तेषु जागर्ति कालो हि दुरतिक्रमः—Time keeps wide awake when all else sleeps. Time is invincible indeed!"[Source]
  • Life is short — time is flying.[Source]
  • Mind is substance plus time, space and causation.[Source]
  • The whole of nature is bound by the law of causation and is in time and space.[Source]
  • The whole [universe] is composed of time, space, and causation.[Source]
  • This present is all that is. There is only the One. All is here right now. One moment in infinite time is quite as complete and all - inclusive as every other moment. All that is and was and will be is here in the present. Let anybody try to imagine anything outside of it -- he will not succeed.[Source]
  • Time and space are infinite, and therefore have neither beginning nor end.[Source]
  • Time is entirely a dependent existence; it changes with every change of our mind. Sometimes in dream one imagines that one has lived several years, at other times several months were passed as one second. So, time is entirely dependent on our state of mind.[Source]
  • Time is but the method of our thinking, but we are the eternally present tense.[Source]
  • Time is in me, not I in time.[Source]
  • Time is in the soul; it is when the soul reflects its powers on the mind and the mind thinks, that time comes.[Source]
  • Time is infinite.[Source]
  • Time, space, and causation are the three conditions through which mind perceives. Time is the condition for the transmission of thought.[Source]
