“Whenever I feel lazy and don't care I think about this: To realize the value of 1 year, ask a student who failed a grade. 1 month, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby. 1 week, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper. 1 day, ask a person born on February 29th. 1 hour, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet. 1 minute, ask a person who missed the train. 1 second, ask a person who just avoided an accident. 1 millisecond, ask the person who won silver in the Olympics.”
