Time is valuable and fleeting. Our life is measured in terms of time. We grow, live and perish. Once lost, time is lost forever. It neither stops nor waits for anybody. Even the most powerful monarchs are helpless before time. We must make the best use of time to succeed in life. Grab the opportunity to use our skills efficiently. One who does so can grow and rise.

A stitch in time saves nine — it highlights the importance of time and saves us inconvenience and trouble. Do not waste time. It will only lead to failure.
