Fear of Wasting Life

Eric Hoffer, Bits and Pieces, May 1990, p. 1

The feeling of being hurried is not usually the result of living a full life and having no time. It is, on the contrary, born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life. When we do not do the one thing we ought to do, we have no time for anything else&md;we are the busiest people in the world.
