Every day is a bank account, and time is our currency. No one is rich, no one is poor; we’ve got 24 hours each. The trouble with being poor is that it takes up all your time. You can’t measure time by days the way you measure money by dollars and cents, because dollars are all the same while every day is different and maybe every hour as well. The sad thing about our time is that we have to attach a price tag to it. Time is more significant than money; the value of your life depends on what you do with it. Money cannot buy happiness, but it does make it possible for you to enjoy the best that the world has to offer. The value of your life depends on what you do with your time.
The biggest difference between money and time is that we always know how much money we have, but we never know how much time we have left. Time is the most valuable thing on earth. More valuable than money will ever be. When you spend money, you can always get more out of it. When you spend time, you can never get it back. You know how much money you have at all times. You have no idea how much time you have. Spend your money on the things money can buy. Spend your time on the things money can’t buy. It's not about how many things you can have; it's about being able to enjoy the things you do have, because it's better to have more time to enjoy what you have than to have too many things but not enough time to enjoy them.
Time is money, but no amount of money can return your time. Time will take your money, but money won't buy time. With time, you can create money, but with money, you cannot create time. So time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time. There is a time to make money and a time to not lose money.
Time is non-refundable. Use it with intention. You reach a point in life when you realize it's more important to be with someone who spends quality time with you than to stay with someone who spends money on you. Money makes respect, but if you don't respect anyone at the right time, then you can't get respect even if you have money. The goal isn't more money; the goal is living your life on your own terms. If you don't know the value of time, you don't know the value of life. When you waste time, it's not time you waste; it's your life you waste. If you don’t make the time to work on creating the life you want, you’re eventually going to be forced to spend a lot of time dealing with a life you don’t want.
Money is the worst discovery of human life, but it is the most trusted material to test human nature. Money is a great servant but a bad master. Money is like seawater. The more you drink, the thirstier you become. Possession of wealth creates an addiction to money. When you know your worth, others will see your value. Anyone who tells you that money is the root of all evil doesn't have any. The only time we don't need money is when we are already six feet below the ground. Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Waste your money, and you’re only out of money; waste your time, and you’ve lost a part of your life. Time is more valuable than money because time is irreplaceable. If you run out of money, you can make more. If you run out of time, that's it. Game over. Once it's gone, it's gone forever.
You can use your time to make money, but you can't use the money to purchase more time. So I bought a
