Time Is Money Is
In all my reading in Industriousness and work ethics the last few days and weeks, I found the Time is Money origin. It seems that pretty much every phrase you’ve ever heard before, Franklin wrote it first.
From a Advice to a Young Tradesman:
“Remember that Time is Money. He that can earn Ten Shillings a Day by his Labour, and goes abroad, or sits idle one half of that Day, tho’ he spends but Sixpence during his Diversion or Idleness, ought not to reckon That the only Expence; he has really spent or rather thrown away Five Shillings besides.” - Ben Franklin
Or more modernly…
“Time is money, money is power, power is pizza, and pizza is knowledge, let’s go!” - April Ludgate, Parks & Rec
