The Value of Time II


time concept

Do not walk through time without leaving worthy evidence of your passage. –Pope John XXIII (1881-1963)


Every moment comes to you pregnant with a divine purpose; time being so precious that God deals it out only second by second. Once it leaves your hands and your power to do with it as you please, it plunges into eternity, to remain forever what you made it.   —Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (1895-1979)


It’s up to me to use it.

   I must suffer if I lose it.

   Give account if I abuse it.

   Just a tiny little minute,

   But eternity is in it.

   Learn from yesterday;

   Live for today;

   Hope for tomorrow.

Lost time is never found again.

   Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

Make every minute count!
