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 J. Bailey
HERE is no saying shocks me so much as that which I hear very often: that a man does not know how to pass his time. It would have been but ill spoken by Methuselah, in the nine hundred and sixty-ninth year of his life; so far it is from us, who have not time enough to attain to the utmost perfection of any part of any science, to have cause to complain that we are forced to be idle for want of work.
HE lives long that lives well; and time misspent is not lived but lost. Besides, God is better than His promise, if He takes from him a long lease, and gives him a freehold of greater value.
