Attract Time With Arnold Bennett Quotes

Arnold Bennett

Arnold Bennett quotes "Time is money" as time can often produce money, but money cannot produce more time.

What Are You Going to Do Today?

Arnold Bennett says, Each person has 24 hours in a day.

Are you able to maximize all the hours that you have?

His quotes provides classic time management tips on how to make the most of every day.


Take full responsibility.

Arnold Bennett quotes

“You wake up in the morning, and lo! your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of the magic tissue of the universe of your life!

No one can take it from you.

No one receives either more or less than you receive.

Waste you infinitely precious commodity as much as you will, and the supply will never be withheld from you.

Moreover, you cannot draw on the future.

Impossible to get into debt.

You can only waste the passing movements. You cannot waste tomorrow.

It is kept for you.”

 

Every morning, you are given a precious gift:

TIME.

Along with this gift, you are also given the freedom to decide what to do with it.

Wake up each day with the resolve to be in control of your hours.

Set your goals and commit to achieve these using a to-do list that would help you accomplish your tasks according to your priorities.

As a general rule, start with the most important or difficult task, so you will still have the energy to work on the easier tasks later on.

Sounds silly, if I do something extra I will write it down just so I can cross it off,  at the end of the day you look at your list at everything that you have accomplish  and it can feel quite empowering.


 Never put off until tomorrow what you can work on today.

Arnold Bennett quotes
“We never shall have any more time. We have, and we have always had, all the time there is.”

Resist the urge to procrastinate.

Most people procrastinate because they are avoiding the discomfort associated with the task at hand and they might be thinking that they will always have more hours tomorrow.

However, the longer you delay a certain task, the more stressful it would be to deal with it.

You are just wasting precious time that you could have used on other important matters like getting enough sleep instead of working needlessly way past your bed time to beat deadlines because you chose not to do your task earlier.

Especially phone calls that you don't want to make, do those hard ones first, you never know they may not be as bad as what you think they are going to be, it is now out of your head and you can move on without thinking about it, it removes that negative space in your head.

 

Leave no room for regrets.

You can only waste the passing moment.

Arnold Bennett quotes
You cannot waste to-morrow; it is kept for you.”

Stop thinking of what might have been.

Instead, reflect, move on, and think of what you can do today and tomorrow to improve your situation.

Accept the fact that not everything can happen according to your plan, but you will always have the choice to move forward and make the most of the time that you have.

Arnold Bennett Quotes

The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.

The proper, wise balancing
of one's whole life may depend upon the
feasibility of a cup of tea at an unusual hour.

Arnold Bennett Quotes

Any change, even a change for the better is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.

A cause may be inconvenient, but it's magnificent.
It's like champagne or high heels, and one must be prepared to suffer for it. 

Which of us is not saying to himself
which of us has not been saying to himself all
his life:

I shall alter that when I have a little more time?
We never shall have any more time. We
have, and we have always had, all the time
there is.

 

Nearly all bookish people are snobs, and especially the more enlightened among them.
They are apt to assume that if a writer has immense circulation, if he is enjoyed by plain persons, and if he can fill several theaters at once, he cannot possibly be worth reading and merits only indifference and disdain.

The real Tragedy is the tragedy of the man who never in his life braces himself for his one supreme effort-he never stretches to his full capacity, never stands up to his full stature.

Arnold Bennett

It is easier to go down a hill than up, but the view is from the top.

It is difficult to make a reputation, but is even more difficult seriously to mar a reputation once properly made --- so faithful is the public.

The makers of literature are those who have seen and felt the miraculous interestingness of the universe.
If you have formed...literary taste...your life will be one long ecstasy of denying that the world is a dull place.

Arnold Bennett Quotes

One of the chief things which my typical man has to learn is that the mental faculties are capable of a continuous hard activity; they do not tire like an arm or a leg.

All they want is change - not rest, except in sleep.

The second suggestion is to think as well as to read.
I know people who read and read, and for all the good it does them they might just as well cut bread-and-butter.
They take to reading as better men take to drink.
They fly through the shires of literature on a motor-car, their sole object being motion.
They will tell you how many books they have read in a year.
Unless you give at least 45 minutes to careful, fatiguing reflection (it is an awful bore at first) upon what you are reading, your 90 minutes of a night are chiefly wasted.

Its language is a language which the soul alone understands, but which the soul can never translate. 

Arnold Bennett

Having once decided to achieve a certain task, achieve it at all costs of tedium and distaste.

The gain in self-confidence of having accomplished a tiresome labour is immense.

You wake up in the morning, and lo! your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of the unmanufactured tissue of the universe of your life!

It is yours.

It is the most precious of possessions.

If you imagine that you will be able to achieve your ideal by ingeniously planning out a timetable with a pen on a piece of paper, you had better give up hope at once. If you are not prepared for discouragements and disillusions;
if you will not be content with a small result for a big effort, then do not begin. Lie down again and resume the uneasy doze which you call your existence.

We never shall have any more time. We have, and we have always had, all the time there is.

There can be no knowledge without emotion.
We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours.
To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul.

The man who begins to go to bed forty minutes before he opens his bedroom door is bored; that is to say, he is not living.

Arnold Bennett

Without the power to concentrate that is to say, without the power to dictate to the brain its task and to ensure obedience true life is impossible.

Mind control is the first element of a full existence.

Happiness does not spring from the procuring of physical or mental pleasure, but from the development of reason and the adjustment of conduct to principles.

Arnold Bennett Quotes

You probably think of the orchestra as a heterogeneous mass of instruments producing a confused agreeable mass
of sound.

You do not listen for details because you have never trained your ears to listen to details.

And since nothing whatever happens to us outside our own brain; since nothing hurt us or gives us pleasure except within the brain, the supreme importance of being able to control what goes on in that mysterious brain is patent.

There grows in the North Country a certain kind of youth of whom it may be said that he is born to be a Londoner.

Arnold Bennett

There can be no knowledge without emotion.
We may be aware of a truth, yet until we have felt its force, it is not ours.
To the cognition of the brain must be added the experience of the soul

Beware of undertaking too much at the start. Be content with quite a little.

Allow for accidents.

Allow for human nature, especially your own.

The supply of time is truly a daily miracle, an affair genuinely astonishing when one examines it.

You wake up in the morning, and lo! your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of the unmanufactured tissue of the universe of your life!

It is yours.

It is the most precious of possessions.

A highly singular commodity, showered upon you in a manner as singular as the commodity itself!

The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance. The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.

Most people sleep themselves stupid.

All wrong doing is done in the sincere belief that it is the best thing to do

Arnold Bennett

The foundation of England's greatness is that Englishmen hate to look fools.

What then?
Are we only to buy the books that we read?
The question has merely to be thus bluntly put, and it answers itself. All impassioned book men, except a few who devote their whole lives to reading, have rows of books on their shelves which they have never read, and which they never will read.
I know that I have hundreds such.
My eye rests on the works of Berkeley in three volumes, with a preface by the Right Honorable Arthur James Balfour.
I cannot conceive the circumstances under which I shall ever read Berkeley; but I do not regret having bought him in a good edition, and I would buy him again if I had him not; for when I look at him some of his virtue passes into me; I am the better for him.
A certain aroma of philosophy informs my soul, and I am less crude than I should otherwise be.
This is not fancy, but fact.

You wake up in the morning, and lo! your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of the unmanufactured tissue of the universe of your life! It is yours. It is the most precious of possessions. A highly singular commodity, showered upon you in a manner as singular as the commodity itself!

Imaginative poetry produces a far greater mental strain than novels.
It produces probably the severest strain of any form of literature.
It is the highest form of literature. It yields the highest form of pleasure, and teaches the highest form of wisdom.
In a word, there is nothing to compare with it. I say this with sad consciousness of the fact that the majority of people do not read poetry.
I will never cease advising my friends and enemies to read poetry before anything.

Pessimism, when you get used to it, is just as agreeable as optimism.

Philosophers have explained space. They have not explained time.

Arnold Bennett Quotes

Mind control is the first element of a full existence.

Just as nothing succeeds like success, so nothing fails like failure.

Arnold Bennett

Of course it is impossible, or at any rate very difficult, properly to study anything whatever without the aid of printed books.

But if you desire to understand the deeper depths of bridge or of boat-sailing you would not be deterred by your lack of interest in literature from reading the best books on bridge or boat-sailing.

We must, therefore, distinguish between literature, and books treating of subjects not literary.

The public is a great actuality, like war.

If you are a creative and creating artist, you cannot ignore it, though it can ignore you.

The artist who is too sensitive for contacts with the non-artistic world is thereby too sensitive for his vocation, and fit only to fall into gentle ecstasies over the work of artists less sensitive than himself.

You had better give up hope at once.
If you are not prepared for discouragements and disillusions; if you will not be content with a small result for a big effort, then do not begin.

ll I urge is that a life in which conduct does not fairly well accord with principles is a silly life; and that conduct can only be made to accord with principles by means of daily examination, reflection, and resolution.

Money is far commoner than time.
When one reflects, one perceives that money is just about the commonest thing there is.

Arnold Bennett

You can only waste the passing moment.

You cannot waste to-morrow; it is kept for you.

If a man makes two-thirds of his existence subservient to one-third, for which admittedly he has no absolutely feverish zest, how can he hope to live fully and completely?

He cannot.

Which of us is not saying to himself—which of us has not been saying to himself all his life: "I shall alter that when I have a little more time"?

We never shall have any more time.

We have, and we have always had, all the time there is.

You have to live on this twenty-four hours of daily time.

Out of it you have to spin health, pleasure, money, content, respect, and the evolution of your immortal soul.”

One of the chief things which my typical man has to learn is that the mental faculties are capable of a continuous hard activity; they do not tire like an arm or a leg.

All they want is change—not rest, except in sleep.

Until an effort is made to satisfy that wish, the sense of uneasy waiting for something to start which has not started will remain to disturb the peace of the soul.

Arnold Bennett Quotes

Most people who are ruined are ruined by attempting too much.

When one has thoroughly got imbued into one's head the leading truth that nothing happens without a cause, one grows not only large-minded, but large-hearted.

If a man makes two-thirds of his existence subservient to one-third, for which admittedly he has no absolutely feverish zest, how can he hope to live fully and completely?

We never shall have any more time.

We have, and we have always had, all the time there is

Arnold Bennett

How to live on eight shillings a week."
But I have never seen an essay, "How to live on twenty-four hours a day."
Yet it has been said that time is money.
That proverb understates the case.
Time is a great deal more than money.
If you have time you can obtain money—usually. But though you have the wealth of a cloak-room attendant at the Carlton Hotel, you cannot buy yourself a minute more time than I have, or the cat by the fire has.

It is a fine thing to be a walking encyclopaedia of philosophy, but if you happen to have no liking for philosophy, and to have a like for the natural history of street-cries, much better leave philosophy alone, and take to street-cries.
