Time is the most important currency. It’s only ever a one-way spend. You can never get it back, do it over, get a refund, save it, invest it, gain it, or lose it. No specific amount of time is guaranteed to anyone. Choose wisely, and don’t frivolously spend it.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.
