In this Coming year 2014, Remember;
Four things do not come back: the spoken word, the fired bullet, the past life, and the neglected opportunity.
Time is money. We should not be stingy or mean with it, but we should not throw away an hour any more than we would throw away our money.
Waste of time means waste of energy, waste of vitality, waste of character in dissipation. It means the waste of opportunities which will never come back. Beware how you kill time, for all your future lives in it.
“If a man empties his purse into his head, no man can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.” – Benjamin Franklin
“The greatest thing you can do is to be what you ought to be.” – ANON.
The way to get the most out of ourselves, or out of life, is give to ourselves, not stingily, meanly, but magnanimously, to others. “If the rosebud should try to retain all of its sweetness and beauty locked within its petals and refuse to give it out, it would be lost. It is only by flinging them out to the world that their fullest development is possible.”
If you try to keep your education, your talents and abilities to yourself, you end up strangling and inhibiting them and thereby impoverish your own life.
Live your greatest lives!
