Wise Words On Wednesday: Time Restrictions

“Time makes the combination of pleasures impossible. Because we live in time we cannot simultaneously listen to Cicero, Demosthenes and Bossuet; because the clock of our life is wound but only once, we cannot at one and the same moment enjoy the snow of the Alps and the refreshing ¬†sunshine of the highlands of Kenya; because the heart beats out the lease on life, one cannot, despite the advertisements ‘dine and dance’ at one and the same time” – Archbishop Fulton Sheen
