: : Does anyone know of the origin of the phrase, the 'sands of time'? If you do, please email me with an answer or any possible web links to things about it. Thanx.

: The reference is most likely to sand falling in an hourglass. I don't know when it originated.

My fave soap?
Like sands through the hourglass so are the Days of Our Lives.
