Pearls of Wisdom, that is
On Time, and carpe diem (seize the day)
Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with 86,400 dollars. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening deletes whatever balance went unspent. What would you do?
You'd draw out every penny, of course.
Each of us has such a bank, it's name is TIME
Every morning, you have 86,400 seconds to "spend".
You must live in the present on today's deposits. You should invest it so as to get the utmost in health, happiness, and success. The clock is running. Make the most of Today.
Remember, time waits for no one.
Yesterday is history
tomorrow is a mystery
today is a gift, that's why it's called the Present.
To realize the value of one millisecond, ask the person who won the silver and not the gold at the Olympics.
And a year would be 365x 86,400. What's that? a lot of seconds.
