On time...........

"Practically speaking, if timesaving devices really saved
time,there would be more time available to us now then ever
before in history.  but, strangely enough, we seem to have
less time than even a few years ago.  It's really great to go
someplace where there are no timesaving devices because,
when you do, you find that you have lots of time."

"The main problem with this great obsession for Saving Time
is very simple: you can't save time.  You can only spend it.
But you can spend it wisely or foolishly.  The Bisy Backson
has practically no time at all, because he's too busy wasting
it by trying to save it.  And by trying to save every bit of it,
he ends up wasting the whole thing.

  1. This fits right in with the ubiquitous saying "One Day at a Time". It would be useful sometimes if we could do two days at a time or five days at a time. Two young women in our family recently had babies. They would have happily taken several of the last days of their pregnancies at a time if that was possible. And what about prisoners of any kind?
