The personification of Time and the more friendly version of the Grim Reaper. Typically pictured as an old man with a white beard doning a cloak and oft times carrying a scythe and hourglass. In ancient times he was known as Chronus or Saturn.

Father Time is married to Mother Earth; just as the Grim Reaper, the personification of Death, is married to Life who pictured as a young lady in artwork.

He symbolizes the flow of time and its effects. His old body is a reminder that time is the devourer of all things and that, like the sand in the hourglass he often carries, his life will run out, as all good things come to an end.
He turns the seasons around
And so she changes her gown
But they always look in their prime
They go on dancing their dance
Of every lasting romance
Mother Earth and Father Time
The summer larks return to sing
Oh what a gift they give
Then autumn days grow short and cold
Oh what a joy to live
How very special are we
For just a moment to be
Part of life’s eternal rhyme
How very special are we
To have on our family tree
Mother Earth and Father Time

The oldest living thing ever.... at college. This is the person who came to college years before any other of his current classmates, and has seen over a generation of students graduate before him. He is more likely to get a prescription to Viagra before he gets a diploma Diploma. However, in his old and experienced age, their infinite wisdom and knowledge of the social dynamics of the collegiate atmosphere are invaluable.

This is when older people take a longer, more difficult time to do things. Sometimes, just because they can.

Time flies by when you're in a hurry; time slows down when you pay attention to it.
