To know the Value of Time

Recently, as part of my own personal research and also as preparation of teaching notes for my GP students, I’ve been reading up on how the notions of Happiness, Time & Money co-relate in our modern lives. And one of interesting quotes I came across was this:

To know the value of one year –
ask the student who failed their final.

To know the value of one month –
ask the mother of a premature baby.

To know the value of one week –
ask the editor of a weekly magazine.

To know the value of one day –
ask the wage earner with six children.

To know the value of one hour –
ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To know the value of one minute –
ask the person who missed the plane.

To know the value of one second –
ask the person who survived the accident.

To know the value of one millisecond –
ask the Olympic silver medalist.
