Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spent it for you.
Carl Sandburg

Waste you money and you're only out of money; but waste your time and you're lost a part of your life.
Michael La Boeuf

Yesterday's the past, tomorros's the future, but today is a gift. That's why it's called the present.

Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

John Wooden (1910 - 2010)

Good ones, though I disagree about "wasted" time, this is a matter of opinion only

I agree with lilo. It's a matter of opinion.

I think our character gives us our reputation.
Thanks for the quotes.

We all do something that somebody else sees as waste of time. I know one of my neighbor thinks watching the birds and reading are a waste, I think her washing windows every second Monday,( weather permitting) is a waste of time and papertowels. LOL.
