"It's also important to vary your stimuli. I always look for new things to shock the system. Just as you make muscles grow by shocking them, you make the mind grow by shocking it."
- Bart Kosko

Time Line  
  Time seen linearly, as a distinguishable series of events.  

As far as I know, this is the earliest instance of this phrase.

“Recently, Lee — commencing I believe about four months ago, our liners began to disappear — and all our efforts to locate them or the passengers and crew have completely failed! There are only two alternatives to be admitted. Either those liners have been turned aside from the time line by some colossal and unsuspected power, or else they have been flung beyond the Limited Stop — the year Ten Million and Two Thousand. If that be so, if the latter is the case, those liners are marooned in far futurity and lost!”
From Liners of Time, by John Russell Fearn.
Published by Amazing Stories in 1935
