The Value of Time

To realize the value of one year, ask a student who has failed his final exam.
To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of one week, ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of one day, ask a daily wage laborer who has ten kids to feed.
To realize the value of one hour, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of one minute, ask a person who has missed the train.
To realize the value of one second, ask a person who has survived an accident.
To realize the value of one millisecond, ask the person who has won a silver medal in Olympics.
Treasure every moment that you have! Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is mystery.
Today is a gift. That is why it’s called “the present”.

珍惜你现在的时间,昨天已过去,明天还不知道会发生什么。
珍惜现在,这就是为什么“现在”被称为礼物。
