As if you could kill time without injuring eternity. - Henry David Thoreau Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for it is the stuff life is made of. - Benjamin Franklin I have so much to do today that I shall spend the first 3 hours in prayer. - Martin Luther Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. - Carl Sandburg What if you were given $1440.00 at the start of each day to use as you see fit, the only stipulation being that you must give back what you haven't spent by the end of the day? Time is nature's way of keeping everything from happening at once. We master our minutes, or we become slaves to them; we use time, or time uses us. More time is wasted not in hours but in minutes. A bucket with a small hole in the bottom gets just as empty as a bucket that is deliberately kicked over. Treasure each second that you have, and all the more when you can share your precious treasure with someone special, someone to share your treasure! Remember that relentless clock that waits for no one for any reason! Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it's called the present! We are always complaining that our days are few, and acting as though there would be no end. - Seneca Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon. - Susan Ertz
