Time is the coin of your life, said Carl Sandburg. It is the only coin you have.

And only you can determine how it will be spent.

Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.

Who was Charles Buxton? According to Wikipedia:

Charles Buxton (18 November 1823 – 10 August 1871) was an English brewer, philanthropist, writer and member of Parliament.

He produced Memoirs of Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton, Baronet, with Selections from his Correspondence, first published in 1848. He later wrote a history, Slavery and Freedom in the British West Indies, published in 1860.

There was formerly a capacity for light-heartedness and play which has been to some extent inhibited by the cult of efficiency. The modern man thinks that everything ought to be done for the sake of something else, and never for its own sake. ~Bertrand Russell
