“In reality, beginning the minute you are born, time is all you have. It is your only true commodity. People can take away your possessions but–short of murder–not even the most powerful aggressors can take time away from you if you let them. Even in prison your time is your own, if you use it for your own purposes. To waste your time in battles not of your choosing is more than just a mistake, it is stupidity of the highest order. Time lost can never be regained.” Robert Greene 48 Laws of Power
