What is TIME???

For a while now, I have been mulling over "What is TIME?".

In an attempt to unravel this, I looked around to see what others had to say about TIME... Interestingly and Surprisingly I found so many diverse thoughts.

In this blog, I am listing the ones which I really liked:

"One cannot buy, rent or hire more time. The supply of time is totally inelastic. No matter how high the demand, the supply will not go up. There is no price for it. Time is totally perishable and cannot be stored. Yesterday's time is gone forever, and will never come back. Time is always in short supply. There is no substitute for time. Everything requires time. All work takes place in, and uses up time. Yet most people take for granted this unique, irreplaceable and necessary resource." BY Peter Drucker

"The unknown is not measurable by the known. Time cannot measure the timesless, the eternal, that immensity which has no beginning and no end. But our minds are bound to the yardstick of yesterday, today, and tomorrow, and with that yardstick we try to inquire into the unknown, to measure that which is not measurable. And when we try to measure something which is not measurable, we only get caught in words. " BY J krishnaMurti
