Il Valore del Tempo

I dislike chain emails a lot, especially those that say you'll get bad luck when "you don't pass this on". Doh! As if a bunch of data made mostly of 1s and 0s will be responsible if I get hit by a speeding truck.


Most of the times I send them straight to the trash folder, without so much as clicking on them. But this one struck me hard, and it once again reinforces me to think how every moment counts. Read on.

The Value of Time

To realize
The value of a sister
Ask someone
Who doesn't have one.

To realize
The value of ten years:
Ask a newly
Divorced couple.

To realize
The value of four years:
Ask a graduate.

To realize
The value of one year:
Ask a student who
Has failed a final exam.

To realize
The value of nine months:
Ask a mother who gave birth to a stillborn.

To realize
The value of one month:
Ask a mother
Who has given birth to
A premature baby.

To realize
The value of one week:
Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize
The value of one minute:
Ask a person
Who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize
The value of one-second:
Ask a person
Who has survived an accident.

Time waits for no one.

Treasure every moment you have.

You will treasure it even more when
you can share it with someone special.

To realize the value of a friend or
family member:

LOSE ONE.
