I was wondering about the difference between these sentences. They all translate the German "Der Zeit vergeht so schnell" or the Italian "il tempo vola". I would like to know if:

  • all of them are correct;
  • there is any significant geographical difference between them. If for instance one is more used in the US and another somewhere else, in case please specify where.
  • I'd also like to know which one is the most likely to be used in a colloquial situation, maybe as one is speaking with a friend and realizes "Wow! It's already the end of April" "Yeah, time ... (whatever expression). a native speaker would use).

    1. Time flies!
    2. Time goes by so fast/quickly!
    3. Time passes so fast/quickly

Is there any other way to express this? In case let me please know! Thank you all, Eli
