Don't go around saying the world owes you a living; the world owes you nothing; it was here first.

Your priceless time

Money can be saved for later. And money that is wasted can be earned back. But time must be used as it comes, for once a moment is past it will never come again.

You have exactly one chance to make the best of today. And that opportunity is upon you right now. The time you spend today can bring a magnificent and lasting return, or it can bring a lifetime of regret.

Today can never be replaced. It is yours to use right now. You cannot save it for later, but you can turn it into an achievement that will continue to bring value long into the future. Time can be priceless or it can be worthless, depending on what you do with it.

This very day is a vein of the purest gold, waiting to be mined. Your efforts will make that treasure a reality.

— Ralph Marston
