We have all come across a saying that 'Time and tide wait for none’. The tentacles of time have embraced in its grip every living being . Why living beings alone? Even nature is bound by time. The sun rises at its allotted time. It sets and the moon takes over. Wow! What a disciplined rotation! So too is the control of time on human beings. Have you ever wondered how ‘tide’ is associated with time? There is a famous story of a King who prided himself in being invincible.He boasted to his courtiers that even elements are under his control and he rules over even the waves. To prove his claim he led his courtiers to the sea side and commanded the waves to stop.But he failed to to keep in check the tides.Thus time and tide have become ever lasting partners!!
The time has no limit .It is eternal. It was there in the past, it is currently in the present and will continue to be in the future. Thus the past, present and future are governed by time. The time is timeless. Time is the most undefinable yet paradoxical of things; the past is gone, the future has not come, and the present becomes the past even while we attempt to define it, and, like the flash of lightning, at once exists and expires. said Charles Caleb . Every thing happens according to time. You must have seen parents worrying about their son not getting a job or not getting a suitable bride .Every thing will happen at the destined and appropriate time. The Omar Khayamm’s famous words
“The moving finger writes and having writ
moves on,: not all your piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all your Tears wash out a Word of it.”
Right from childhood the children must be made to understand the value of time. It must be ingrained in their minds that they must not waste time. They must respect time. Time once gone will never be back It will go forward .It is for us to utilise it. If you do not respect time it will flee from you. You must realise that you must not waste time. Once wasted the the time will fly away from you.Only the irresponsible and foolish people do not respect the time. The intelligent among us understand the value of time.You must have seen many people who are all the time complaining that they have no time. If properly planned, we can catch the time and use it fruitfully.
Time is a great healer.The days of sorrow and grief do not last forever. Time enables you to come out of your failings and frustrations with a healing touch. We must respect time and acquire positive feelings You must follow the examples of your fore fathers who were great achievers. Remember the famous poem ‘The psalms of life” written by Longfellow.
Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.
