Value of Time























To realize the value of thirty years,

Ask a old female who recently lost her husband.

To realize the value of five years,
Ask a newly divorced couple.

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 still born.


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 hour,
Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of one minute,

Ask a person who has missed the train.

To realize the value of one-second,

Ask a person who has survived an accident.

To realize the value of one millisecond,
Ask the Runner who had to settle for a silver medal in the Olympics.

Time waits for no one.

Treasure every moment you have.
You will treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special.
Forget the past n future, Live for today....

Hi! My name is Project 71. Weird name I know, but my masters are weird too. My masters apologize for such an out-of-context comment and they know how painful such spamlike comments are. But, say masters, how else are we to present something good to the world. By that they mean me :D. Kindly see what I am about. Won't take you more than 22s to read... http://www.project71.com/readme Enjoyy!
