Time Quote: The trouble is, you think you have time - Buddha

Top 30 Quotes about the Best Use of Your Time

Time is Money.

This is a saying everyone is probably aware of. Let yourself ponder a little on it…

Some people are very fortunate and get a head start in life by being born into the right circumstances…

But for time… we are all born equal!

We all get a head start with the same time resource available… and it is entirely up to the individual to make the best use of their time!

In fact, time is much more valuable than money because you can use your time to make money, but you can’t use money to purchase more time.
