Time is valuable and we often take it for granted. We either have too much or too little of it depending on how we manage it. Time is something to be respected and used wisely. Remember the old Twilight Zone episode about the banker who wanted more time? This banker loved to read but his wife wouldn't let him. He had to hide in the bank vault in order to read his precious books.

One day the earth was decimated and he was the only survivor. He stumbled some miles until he came upon the New York Public Library. He was overjoyed because piles and piles of books survived and now he had all the time in the world to read them.

As he bent down to pick up a book, his bifocals fell onto the ground and he accidentally stepped on them. They were smashed. He screamed out into the emptiness, "All I wanted was time!"
