Time

A truer image of the world, I think, is obtained by picturing things as entering into the stream of time from an eternal world outside, than from a view which regards time as the devouring tyrant of all that is.

— Bertrand Russell

Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.

— Jorge Luis Borges

Sexual reproduction is in time, what the tiger is in space… the sudden and frantic squandering of energy resources, carried in a moment to the limit of possibility.

— Georges Bataille
