We all sorely complain of the shortness of time, and yet have much more than we know what to do with.

Everything else is secondary. - Steve Jobs

Too slow for those who wait,
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grieve,
Too short for those who rejoice;
But for those who love …
Time is Eternity. - Henry van Dyke
