"Time"says the proverb, "is money" .This means that every moment well-spent may put some money into our pockets. If our time is usefully employed,it will either turn out some useful and important piece of work which will fetch its price in the market, or it will add to our experience and increase our capacities so as to enable us to earn money when the proper opportunity comes. There can thus be no doubt that time is convertible into money. Let those who think nothing of wasting time, remember this;let them remember that all hour misspent is equivalent to the loss of a bank-note;and that an hour utilized is tantamount to so much silver or gold ; and then they will probably think twice before they give their consent to the loss of any part of their time.

Moreover, our life is nothing more than our time. To kill time is therefore a form of suicide. We are shocked when we think of death, and we spare no pains,no trouble, and no expense to preserve life. But we are too often indifferent to the loss of an hour or of a day, forgetting that our life is the sum total of the days and of the hours we live. A day or an hour wasted is therefore so much life forfeited. Let us bear this in mind,and waste of time will appear to us in the light of a crime as culpable as suicide itself.

There is a third consideration which will also tend to warn us against loss of time. Our life is a brief span measuring some sixty or seventy years in all,but nearly one half of this has to be spent in sleep;some years have to be spent over our meals;some over dressing and undressing; some in making journeys on land and voyages by sea;some in merry-making,either on our own account or for the sake of others; some in celebrating religious and social festivities; some in watching over the sick-beds of our nearest and dearest relatives. Now if all these years were to be deducted from the term over which our life extends we shall find about fifteen or twenty years at our disposal for active work. Whoever remembers this can never willingly waste a single moment of his life. "It is astonishing",says Lord Chesterfield,"that anyone can squander away in absolute idleness one single moment of that portion of time which is allotted to us in this world. Know the true value of time;snatch,seize,and enjoy every moment of it!"

All time is precious; but the time of our childhood and of our youth is more precious than any other portion of our existence. For those are the periods when alone we can acquire knowledge and develop our faculties and capacities. If we allow these morning hours of life to slip away unutilized, we shall never be able to recoup the loss. As we grow older, our power of acquisition gets blunted,so that the art or science which is not acquired in childhood or youth will never be acquired at all. Just as money laid out at interest doubles and trebles itself in time, so the precious hours of childhood and youth, if properly used,will yield us incalculable advantages. "Every moment you lose," says Lord Chesterfield," is so much character and advantage lost; as on the other hand,every moment you now employ usefully is so much time wisely laid out at prodigious interest."


谚语说:“时间就是金钱”,这意味着每一刻都花在口袋里。如果我们的时间被有效地利用,它就会变成有用的、重要的工作,它会在市场上获得价格,或者增加我们的经验,增加我们的能力,以便在适当的机会到来时使我们赚钱。毫无疑问,时间可以转化成金钱。让那些认为浪费时间,没有记住;让他们记住所有的小时浪费相当于损失一张钞票;而利用一小时就等于这么多的金银;然后他们会在他们给他们同意的任何损失的一部分时间想想。
 
而且,我们的生活只不过是我们的时间而已。因此,消磨时间是自杀的一种形式。当我们想到死亡时,我们感到震惊,我们不遗余力,不费麻烦,不惜牺牲生命。但我们常常对失去一小时或一天漠不关心,忘记了我们的生活是我们生活的每一天和每一小时的总和。因此浪费了一天或一小时浪费了许多生命。让我们记住这一点,浪费时间将出现在我们的罪自杀一样轻。
 
有第三个考虑因素也会提醒我们不要浪费时间。人生短暂,约六十或七十年,但近一半时间必须花在睡觉;几年吃饭也得花去;一些在穿衣和脱衣;一些陆路海上旅行;一些欢乐,无论是我们自己的帐户或为他人着想;几年宗教和社会活动;有的在看着我们至爱的亲人病床。现在,如果所有这些年都要从我们生命延长的期限中扣除,我们将发现大约十五年或二十年可以支配我们的积极工作。记住这一点的人永远也不会心甘情愿地浪费生命中的一刻。”“这是惊人的,说柴斯特菲尔德,“任何人都可以浪费在绝对懒惰片刻,部分时间是分配给我们这世界。了解时间的真正价值;抓住、抓住和享受每一刻!
 
所有的时间都是宝贵的,但我们童年和青春的时光比我们生命中的任何一部分更珍贵。因为只有这样,我们才能获得知识,发展我们的能力和能力。如果我们让这些生命的早晨时光悄悄溜走,我们将永远无法弥补的损失。随着年龄的增长,我们的习得能力减弱了,所以在童年或青年时期没有习得的艺术或科学根本不会得到。就像钱放在银行两倍和高音本身,所以,童年和青年时期的宝贵时光,如果使用得当,将产生无可估量的利益。”每一刻,你输了,”Lord Chesterfield说,“这么多的特点和优势丧失;另一方面,每一刻你现在用地是这么多时间明智地放在惊人的利益。”
