30 Inspiring Time Quotes

What is time? Is it our continued progress into the future, or is it a system of measuring the simple minutes of hours of a clock? Time is one of the most valuable commodities in our lives. We take time for granted, but it is so precious that many of us regret wasting time when we get older in our lives. People who are wise with their times are the ones who find success and happiness, while others who waste time end up as the losers in our society. The concept of time is universal, and it is something that every human being on this planet can understand.

Time is relative to people. Some people feel like time flies by while others think that their time is running slow. The passage of time dictates where we are in our lives, and the wisest of us are the ones who makes the best use of their limited time on this planet. Time never waits or stops for anyone, it goes on in its merry ways. So, we must be vigilant of how we spend our precious time and not waste it on things that have little to no value in our lives. Indeed, time is more expensive than money.
