Have you heard this quote before?

The quote is this, exactly: “ Time is kinetic, It flows forward. As should you.” If you have heard it before, do you know the source? TIA.

That sounds very familiar, but for the life of me I can't remember where or when I read it.
I thought it was possibly a Heinlein quote from one of his books, but my google skills are not up to par with some of MeFi folks and had no luck.

I'll be watching this, I must know!

I put this to my human, who often speaks in quotations, and at first he thought it was a pop trivia question. He did not know the answer straight off. I told him it was a question from a MetaFilter person I liked, and he guessed Ovid's Metamorphoses and then later, Benjamin Button. He has not seen Benjamin Button. This is likely of little help.

If I may ask, do you remember hearing it in a movie or in a song, or reading it, or hearing it from someone else? Is this like that time that Paul was asking the other Beatles about the melody to "Scrambled Eggs"? Is it something a smart friend wrote to you in an email?

(I forgot to say that I searched around a bit and didn't come up with something after a few tries. That doesn't necessarily mean anything.)

Response by poster: It was physically written in a notebook. Googling did not find anything.
