Time

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:



A time to be born, and a time to die;

a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

A time to kill, and a time to heal;

a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh;



a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;

a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose;

a time to keep, and a time to cast away;



A time to rend, and a time to sew;

a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;

A time to love, and a time to hate;

a time of war, and a time of peace.



Oh Wind, If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?

excellent photos! and a much excellent post. only the best from our friendly neighborhood nurse.

everybody needs a time of his own, to find himself and reflect on the things and purposes one has to do in life.

lalim naman. cheer up ruff!

Gian Paolo said...

Hmm. I personally like winter more than any other season. Siguro dahil sawa na ako sa mainit? Hahaha.

kalansaycollector said...

mahalaga ang bawat oras.

kaya sa bawat oras na iyon, gawin na natin ang lahat ng sa tingin natin ay dapat.

bago mahuli ang lahat.

dazedblu* said...

Absolutely everything under this world is has it's own span of time.

Each purpose or reason creates a simple value whatever it may be.

Simply because there's a reason to start and sooner or later it has to take off an end.

bob said...

bakit puro yata melancholic ang posts mo lately, Ruff?

coach said...

a time to post my comment. ganyan talaga, lahat ng bagay may negatives. kaya dapat wag mabahala, kung may dilim may liwanag. i love those pictures.

JOSH said...

Ecclesiates, ika nga sa tagalog, panapanahon lang yan, o k erap weather-weather lang yan.

the part dat i like here most is the time to be born and the time to die...

Myk said...

That was from the book of Ecclesiastes, right? Sa Bible? :D La lang. Dropped by! God bless, Ruff!

I used to dance ballet before.

@THE NOMAD: Oh thank you my dear nomad, I'm glad you appreciated my little winter-spring-summer-autumn ensemble.
~Eventually, we'll get to that point, but of course, there's a proper time for that.
~Don't worry nomad, I'm just here, always cheering up, all at the right time. At your service, the friendly neighborhood nurse. :-) (do i really deserve such great a title?

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@GIAN PAOLO: I crave for the warmth of summer inasmuch as I love the gentle crisp of the air during wintertime.
~The thing I love to do? Wearing knee-high boots, scarves and coats while walking back from work. It might look stupid and all, but that, is definitely one of the simplest pleasures in my life.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@KALANSAY COLLECTOR: Mahalaga nga talaga ang bawat oras!
~Isa 'yan sa mga bagay na natutunan ko sa larangan ng aking trabaho. Na mayroong mga bagay na hindi maaasahan sa buhay, kaya't makabubuting ihanda ang sarili para sa lahat ng mangyayari, magpasalamat sa mga biyaya, sa mga kaibigan, at sa mga mabubuting bagay na natamo sa buhay, at ika nga sa kasabihan, "live each day as if it were your last."

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@DAZEDBLU*: Time has always been a symbol of duality, of dichotomy, of contradictions. It may herald a beginning, yet it may mark a conclusion. It may signal defeat, inasmuch as it epitomizes triumph.
~I think it's all a matter of perspective dazed. We can look at one single thing, yet we can come up with numerous interpretations. I hope you'll arrive at the positive one dazed. :-)

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@BOB: Melancholic? Hmmm, hindi naman masyado. Hahaha. I guess it's with the weather, don't you think?
~And a lot of blogs that I do visit seem to exude that certain sadness. Misery, indeed, loves company. Hahaha.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@COACH: And a time to reply to yours. :-)
~Mas naa-appreciate natin ang mga bagay kung hindi tayo nakatuon sa iisang parte lamang nito. A well-rounded person can look at a single thing in multiple perspectives, can dig what is beyond the surface, and can even see right through it. In that way, a simple thing, and even a negative one, can end up as a thing of beauty, a thing worthy to be looked upon, and celebrated for that matter.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@JOSH: The lines are my most favorite passages ever. I even used some of them in my address of thanks during my college graduation.
~And the final words? From Percy Bysshe Shelley's Ode to the West Wind. One of my most loved poems, the other three William Ernest Henley's Invictus, John Keat's Grecian Urn, and Christina Georgina Rossetti's Remember.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@MYKL: Ecclesiastes it is. And *that is my most loved version. I think its from the KJV? :-)
~Glad to see you back mykl! Congrats on passing the boards by the way.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@REYVILLE: That's one thing I want to learn at least once in my lifetime.

@ALELI: Thanks! Mine's "a time to love," and I'll stop at that. :-)
~Really appreciate you dropping by. Hope you'll become a regular.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@KIKS: Deep? Whoa! That comment coming from you kiks meant so much to me. Especially when I personally knew that you're much much deeper, way way deeper than what I could possibly be.
~Everything will be revealed in it's due time. I guess some of us are just meant to deal with the waiting.



@AMICUS: And a time for that too. :-) Sure, sure, will always do.
~And nope, I'm not complaining. Hahaha.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@PHILIPPE: The warmth of spring can be best appreciated after one has been through to the coldest of the winters.
~As a prelude, there is always a time for everything philippe. It seems to me that you still have problems letting him go. What *happened, as to my humblest opinion, are just surges of hormones and nothing less. As to whether they are caused by your pent up emotions, or just physiologic tendencies, that I do not know. It's time to let go philippe. He's got a life of his own, now it's time to start yours.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@PAT: I heard the song over one episode of Cold Case, and now it's stuck with me like a leech. I guess with this entry, I'm letting it go. :-)
~Mabait? I somehow doubt that. Hahaha...

~Really pat?

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@ENGZ, JUSTMIKE: Feel free to do so. The angel ballerina is my desktop background as of the moment, perfect image for this year's winter.
~Hahaha. Hindi ako malungkot engz, I'm just in a pensive mood lately. And am sort of busy din. So many things to do, so little time. :-)
~If in case I do have some problems, you'll be the first to know. :-)

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@KIKS: Hahaha. You're the kindest, sweetest person that I know of! Diba kei? :-)


@TONSKIE: Oras na rin para ilabas ang natatagong jacket, boots and scarves, at i-cuddle ang ating mga loved ones, habang malamig ang gabi. :-)

yoshke said...

hi ruff, sorry.

my blog got hacked. right now, i still cant post anything. :(

KRISJASPER said...

I dont mind if it is my time to die, but i'd hate it if it is of my family, friends and ________..

I know it will come, but I hope not soon.

aCey said...

hey, ruffles! :) this is so familiar. is this part of ecclesiates in the bible? :) i love your post, with the pretty pics and all. :)

Keitaro Hanazawa said...

Tama si Kalansay. Sabi nga ni pareng Gandalf, "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

Miss you, Ruff.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@YOSHKE: No biggie yoshke, take your time. :-)
~You're one hellofa blogger and you know that. An occasional hack can never bring a good blogger down.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@KRISJASPER: I wouldn't mind dying either. I'm actually looking forward to meeting my own mortality even.
~It's just that I'm not yet ready to say goodbye. I have yet to see all of my loved ones happy and all my dreams fulfilled. :-)

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@ACEY: Yup its from Ecclesiastes. I have long long wanted to post that chapter it's just that I don't have the opportunity. Now this is it. :-)
~And thanks, all of them images are from flickr by the way.

ruff nurse-du-jour said...

@KEITARO HANAZAWA: Gandalf couldn't have said it any better. That's probably the reason why we should live every second of our lives to the fullest. Cozz we'll never know when it'll be our last.
~Miss you too kei. :-) Hope we can meet again soon.
