Try to imagine a life without timekeeping
You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie.
Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays.
Man alone measures time.
Man alone chimes the hour.
And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.
A fear of time running out.
If you look on life carefully it seems to be an awful lot of waiting. But what for? In general the only thing which becomes better while you become older are your possibilites of consumption. Your mind and body fitness and regeneration decreases, responibilites increase…. but don’t be depressed.
You never will be as young as you are NOW. There will never be so much time to life left as NOW. And the one time chance to live your life is always NOW. So don’t wait for your 5-year plan to complete, don’t wait for summer, don’t wait till tommorow.
