You can delegate authority, but you can never delegate responsibility for delegating a task to someone else. If you picked the right man, fine, but if you picked the wrong man, the responsibility is yours -- not his.

Take care in your minutes, and the hours will take care of themselves.
I am definitely going to take a course on time management... just as soon as I can work it into my schedule.
You will never find time for anything. If you want time, you must make it.
Time is like money, the less we have of it to spare the further we make it go.
There's never enough time to do it right, but there's always enough time to do it over.
We never shall have any more time we have, and we have always had, all the time there is.
The first hour of the morning is the rudder of the day.
Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations.
Since time is the one immaterial object which we cannot influence -- neither speed up nor slow down, add to nor diminish -- it is an imponderably valuable gift. Each of us has a few minutes a day or a few hours a week which we could donate to an old folks home or a children's hospital ward. The elderly whose pillows we plump or whose water pitchers we refill may or may not thank us for our gift, but the gift is upholding the foundation of the universe.
How very little can be done under the spirit of fear.
For in all the world there are no people so piteous and forlorn as those who are forced to eat the bitter bread of dependency in their old age, and find how steep are the stairs of another man's house. Wherever they go they know themselves unwelcome. Wherever they are, they feel themselves a burden. There is no humiliation of the spirit they are not forced to endure. Their hearts are scarred all over with the stabs from cruel and callous speeches.
In a world where there is so much to be done, I felt strongly impressed that there must be something for me to do.
The older I get the more wisdom I find in the ancient rule of taking first things first. A process which often reduces the most complex human problem to a manageable proportion.
