196. Time and money

Benjamin Franklin says:
“Remember that time is money.”

The practical man in me whispers:
“I deeply admire
This great discovery.
But I have also to remember that
Time is life.
Time is God the Inspiration
In our outer life;
Time is God the aspiration
In our inner life.
And what is money?
Money is something
That has the message of possession
In the outer world
The message of service
In the inner world.”
