Make each day count!

“To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.”

“The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.”
Money isn’t the ultimate currency in our existence, it is time. Time we cannot get back, time we cannot trade for something else. We must choose carefully how we spend our time, for it is the biggest price we pay, and we can never know how much of it we have left.
