Time is made for man, not man for time.
I hear you say sadly, ‘How shall I fare? And if what you say is true, how shall I give account of each moment of time? – I, who am now twenty four, and until now have never paid heed to time … Help me now for the love of Jesus.’
That is indeed well said: ‘For the love of Jesus.’ For in the love of Jesus you shall find your help.
So then love Jesus, and all that he has is yours. Knit yourself to him by love and faith.
from The Cloud of Unknowing Chapter 4
