Today I stumbled, quite by accident, on a page of sundial mottoes. Contemplating the passage of time can be a valuable spiritual exercise. And the motto makers knew this. Here are a few samples:
Time is Too Slow for those who Wait, Too Swift for those who Fear, Too Long for those who Grieve, Too Short for those who Rejoice; But for those who Love, Time is not.You can find the rest right here.
True as the dial to the sun, Although it be not shin'd upon.
Amende to-day and slack not, Deythe cometh and warneth not, Tyme passeth and speketh not.
