“Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.”
Poetry, prose, and quotes often have different meanings or interpretations based on the reader’s life experiences. Below, I have offered my initial inference of what the words above mean to me. Please feel free to leave yours in the comments section so that other readers might realize a more diverse interpretation. (The context in which the words may have been originally presented, and by whom, are not the primary issues, just what the words might mean to us, or for us, individually, in the now.)
My interpretation of this quote: Time is a resource that we all possess, yet is often squandered. Those who prudently make use of their time will be surprised and pleased with the extent of their accomplishments.
What’s yours? (post in comments section below)
Tomorrow is promised to no one!
