Thoughts on Time

Monday, December 20, 2010

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.

- John Burroughs, essayist and naturalist

It's been my observation that there is enough time in the day to do the things you want to do.

-Abraham Lincoln, American President

Everybody is allotted 1440 minutes each day. It is your choice how you use them

- I forget who said this

    These wise thoughts came just in time for me : )
It's good to know I have enough time to do what I want to do in my life even if there's not enough time in any given day to do it ; )
