The Irish nationalist Charles Parnell is the speaker:

1890 _New Haven Evening Register_  (Dec. 26) 3 : As to my position, time is
on my side.

Also,

1901 _New York  Times Magazine_ (June 9) 17 : I don't care, though, for
time is on my side.

1943 _Dallas Morning News_ (Jan. 30) 2: Gearhart did not oppose the
postponement, expressing the view that "time is on my side."
