“An inch of time is an inch of gold, but you can't buy that inch of time with an inch of gold” ~ Chinese Proverbs


That familar line from the song Fly Like An Eagle goes like this:

"Time keeps on slippin' slippin' slippin' into the future."

The Rolling Stones sang about time, too.:

 "Time is on my side, yes it is."

Here's are two truths about time:

Time marches keeps moving, slipping into the future.....

Time is never really on our side.......

Time is an unpredictable, ever-changing, unstoppable force. 
One moment, our world is perfect and a second later-- turned completely upside down.  The sands of time keep flowing, moving. There is nothing we can do to stop it or change it.....
Time will change us.....but we can't change time.....
We cannot hold time in our hands. There is no controlling or owning time. We can't ever reverse time.
There are all kinds of catchy little phrases about time:
Time is precious.
This is YOUR time.
NOW is the time.
Time waits for no man.
And, when TIME comes to usher us from this world to the next or steals away the ones we love-- the most heartbreaking statement of all:

"I wish I had more time....."
So, if time offers no guarantee, no security, no promise......what are we supposed to do?
 Savour every single precious moment of time.......
Something so precious, so fragile, so un-predictable must be treasured. It must never, ever be wasted. Every single second of time should be treated as if it is your first and your last......
Sobering, isn't it?


And this is my Daily Cyn.....


  1. Cyn the mystic. Standing among those who reveal precious words of wisdom.

  2. "Time waits for no man"
    just the thing about time

    “An inch of time is an inch of gold, but you can't buy that inch of time with an inch of gold”
    so true
