Excerpt: ...I have never seen an essay, "How to live on twenty-four hours a day." Yet it has been said that time is money. That proverb understates the case. Time is a great deal more than money. If you have time you can obtain money-usually. But though you have the wealth of a cloak-room attendant at the Carlton Hotel, you cannot buy yourself a minute more time than I have, or the cat by the fire has. Philosophers have explained space. They have not explained time. It is the inexplicable raw material of everything. With it, all is possible; without it, nothing. The supply of time is truly a daily miracle, an affair genuinely astonishing when one examines it. You wake up in the morning, and lo Your purse is magically filled with twenty-four hours of the unmanufactured tissue of the universe of your life It is yours. It is the most precious of possessions. A highly singular commodity, showered upon you in a manner as singular as the commodity itself For remark No one can take it from you. It is unstealable. And no one receives either more or less than you receive.
