the value of time

To know the value of one year . . . ask the student who failed the final exam.

To know the value of one month . . . ask the mother of the premature baby.

To know the value of one week . . . ask the editor of a weekly newsmagazine.

To know the value of one day . . . ask the wage earner who has six children.

To know the value of one hour . . . ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To know the value of one minute . . . ask the person who missed the plane.

To know the value of one second . . . ask the person who survived the accident.

To know the value of one millisecond . . . ask the Olympic Silver medalist.
