J.R. Miller on Time

TIME comes to us, not in years, not even in weeks--but in little days. We have nothing to do with 'life in the aggregate'--that great bulk of duties, anxieties, struggles, trials and needs, which belong to a year or even to a month. We really have nothing to do even with tomorrow.

Our sole business is with the one little day now passing, and the one day's burdens will never crush us; we can easily carry them until the sun goes down. We can always get along for one short day--and that is really all we ever have. --J. R. Miller
