I saw "Medium" last night and the daughter was angry at her parents and there was a dialogue that went something like this and it really hit me "Ariel Time is priceless, yet it costs us nothing you can do anything you want with it but own it. you can spend it, but you cant keep it and once you've lost it, there's no getting it back it's just...gone.I know you're mad This time that you are choosing to be angry at Daddy and I, is time we could've spent being happy. Time... it's just gone. And you never get it back...there...there went one second, there goes another...gone. You'll never have it again. There's another one, just wasted. We wasted it just by holding onto anger. Just know this, that tomorrow when you wake up, you'll be another day older.
