A little piece I found on the net:
In middle age, vacations are kept intentionally short in duration, because
then one is convinced that time sold for dollars is an extraordinarily good
bargain. As the years press on, the bargain does not look quite as good. Past
middle age, one begins to wonder if the bartering of so much time for dollars
did not make one the victim of a swindle. Logic can never resolve this issue,
but age inevitably does. When, late in life, one sits under a tree and
contemplates the glory of a natural scene, there are few besetting apprehensions
that one is wasting time; lack of time, then, is grimly recognized as the
greatest poverty; every moment gleaned for leisure is realized as a splendid,
priceless investment. If only this could be perceived earlier, how much greater
would be the value of a life's time! -- Calvin Rutstrum

I have always known that time is not money,time is much more valuable than money,you can always get more money,but once time is gone its gone for good.
