Jane Austen Quote of the Week 161

This week's quote is taken from Mansfield Park, which reflects what I feel right now about time.

Oh! Do not attack me with your watch. A watch is always too fast or too slow. I cannot be dictated to by a watch.

These weeks I feel like time just slips away from my fingers... like sand on my fingers... I feel like I'm grasping here and there for life support... and I barely make it. I hope it won't last long... I hope I will regain control of my life sooner than later. But at the moment, I feel that a watch is useless to measure time.

Oh, special thanks to the Jane Austen Quotes site for providing me with this quote.

My dear Icha, you took the words right out of my mouth! I am so sorry to inform you that the situation only gets worse as one gets older. At the moment, years are simply flying by! Just the other day it hit me that I had not visited my other set of grandkids in a whole year come September which is right around the corner. Shame on me!!

Yrs aff'ly,
