Time waits for nobody

“Time is like a sword, if you didn’t cut it, it cuts you”  –  Proverb

Time is so precious, it is one of the vital endowment bestowed on man by his creature.

Truly , the importance of time, can’t be measured  with silver or jewel; it can’t be bought with the whole wealth on the earth.

Once the time passes, nothing, nobody, no matter how powerful can bring it back. It is not like audio or videocassette that you can rewind.

Despite the significance of time, most people are not serious with it, they take it for granted, not knowing that any breath they take in or out reduces their life span and thus draw them nearer to their graves.

Whoever you are, in whatever endeavour you dwell, you have to respect time, because it waits for no body.

Time Is Sword

Time is like a sword, if you don’t know how to hold it, it cuts you, and if you didn’t catch it at the forelock, it will leave you with an un-healing wound.

Time is but a great lesson for those who reason and have the zeal to achieve greater heights in life.

One should not come to this world and go, without leaving a legacy that will make people remember him after he passes away.

We should note that, the beating of our heart signifies to us that life is like seconds and minutes, the moment they passes, you can’t bring or regain them back.

It is so precious that, you can’t buy it with the whole wealth in the world.

Why Waste Time

If time has all these and more significance, why should we waste it playing, discussing, chatting and performing unnecessary things, arguing about things that doesn’t necessarily affect us, or waste it on rubbish or valueless events.

We should therefore do the right things at the right time.

We shouldn’t waste time or think that we have spare time without doing something beneficial.

Seconds and minutes passed on, days and weeks come and go, months and years passes and never return and we will one day be landed in our grave and that is the end of everything.

We should start to plan for that period of time right from now.

We shouldn’t leave the work of today till tomorrow.

We should utilise our strength for our weakness and our youth before old age.

If we respect time, we will definitely excel in life.

  1. Bashir, I totally agree with you. I hate losing time! Why waste time when there are so many things one can do? But has it ever happened to you for people to call you strange because of that? They have called me that way…

  2. Whenever you appear serious with time they brand you so. It has occurred to me several times. Although sometimes I fell into trap of wasting time, but when I realise that I quickly try to make it up. Thanks

  3. Good reflection, man. I took that as an warning for me. I shouldn’t play around any more, or sleep without day or night any more.

    Keep up with the good words, and let’s give time its full play.
