We should count time by heart-throbs, not figures on a dial

I love words, I love quotes, I love poems. So you’ll see lots of them in my blog! Here’s my all-time favourite quote from a play:

“We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths;
In feelings, not in figures on a dial.
We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives
Who thinks most, feels the noblest, acts the best.”

— Philip James Bailey, ‘Festus’ Scene V
