I think it’s time.
Because everything is acquired in time and all of human’s business is conducted by time. You could have food, clothing, fabulous homes, wisdom – have all you want, but if you do not have time, it means you have nothing.
As we go through life, we realize, if there is anything in the world which will never come back again, it is time. There is a saying “Time and tide waits for none”. The saying is indeed true. Time waits for none. It comes and goes. No one can buy it. Nothing on earth can subdue or conquer it.
Someone said “Time is a precious thing” that God give us 24 hours or 1,440 minutes or 86,400 seconds equally.
So, we all have a precious treasure called, time. Each of us obtains it 86,400 seconds per day. Do we spend it on the right way or let it go slowly ? You think God will give you a new day, that is filled with 86,400 seconds and because of this, you’ll just spend time aimlessly, right? I think most of the successful people use it reasonably and doubtlessly. Great men and women used their every moments most profitably and economically. It’s through this method that they have invented great things, discovered wonderful things and left their footprints on the sand of time.
I used to think that I have too much time to waste, but today my time is fading away little by little. I have no time anymore even though God will give me 24 hours tomorrow – and that’s for sure. But I feel…feel like I need more time…more than I have before.
So now, if you are young. Do not think like my childish idea. You should never postpone doing good or important things. You should never be idle when you ought to be working hard. Leisure is enjoyable only if it yearns to fruitful hard work. It’s our duty to not leave any work till tomorrow that can be done today and now.
Someone who wastes time uselessly will some day be wasted by time because they don’t gain anything from the time they waste.
Time is powerful. It conquers all.
A student who has to repeat another year knows the value of time in one year.
A mother who looks after her child knows the value of time in one month.
A weekly newspaper editor who doesn’t send his work in time knows the value of time in one week.
A man who is waiting for his girlfriend knows the value of time in an hour.
A man who misses the last train knows the value of time in one minute.
A man just surviving an accident knows the value of time in one second.
A runner who wins the race knows the value of time in split second.
How about you ? Have you known the value of your time yet ?
