In my part of the world, and most of the US and Europe as well, there was a general agreement that all clocks would be set an hour off back in April. This may have made sense in a world in which most people worked on a single shift, and most factories were lit via skylights for that single shift, but it’s absurd in the 24/7 world of this millennium. Fortunately, as of 2:30 this morning we’ve allowed to set our clocks back to the correct time. The computers switch automatically, I think I know how to set my wristwatch back (well, ahead 23 hours actually, it’s digital), but millions will be digging our the manuals for their VCRs today. Today’s theme: Time.
Okay, so it’s yesterday’s theme. By the time I had the quotes selected something else came up and I forgot to mail them!
Take time to deliberate; but when the time for action arrives, stop thinking and go in.

Bad times, hard times, this is what people keep saying; but let us live well, and times shall be good. We are the times: Such as we are, such are the times.
– Augustine of Hippo, 354 – 430
The shortest way to do many things is to do only one thing at a time.

Nine-tenths of wisdom is being wise in time.
– Theodore Roosevelt, 1858 – 1919
