Today's quote is from The Hours by Michael Cunningham.

Richard, a friend of one of the other main characters, Clarissa, laments: "But there are still the hours, aren't there? One and then another, and you get through the one and then, my god, there's another one."

Richard was the guest of honor of a party that Clarissa threw for him as a celebration of his success as an artist. Richard himself doesn't realize the magnitude of his accomplishment. Instead, he laments the passing of time...from the days when life seemed so easy and carefree to now, when he's fighting AIDS and the loss of his youth.
