Time well-spent is life well-lived

Once upon a time, a grandson asked his grandfather,
“What is time?”

The grandfather replied, “Time is life.”

The grandson could not understand and so the
grandfather explained, “Life is the gift of God to you. Life
consists of breaths collectively known as your time. When
you have spent all your time, you die. Therefore time is life.”
