No time to waste like the presentPosted: November 14, 2012
Perhaps this is a motto of our time. This beauty is a blend of “no time like the present” (do it now) and “no time to waste” or “waste no time” (let’s get on with it.). As my ol’ pal observes, the malaphor is quite accurate as the only time we can waste is in the present. It also reminds me of the infamous Dan Quayle quote, “What a waste it is to lose one’s mind” (he was trying for “A mind is a terrible thing to waste”).
