What time is it?

out of the silent planet by CS Lewis

Oyarsa to Ransom:

we have a rule never to speak of sizes to you small people.

It makes you do homage to little things

 and pass by what is really great.

Would we do well to pay attention to our time concepts?

The western world gets so mixed up.  

Oh that will just be a second.

Let’s do that real quick

That will just be super fast.

When it’s something stupid or worse: something we should take careful effort over.


That will take forEVER

I can’t do THAT: it’s impossibly time consuming or complicated.

…when it is really something important or even our main job in that moment.

International Standard Version
making the best use of your time because the times are evil.

Ephesians 5:16
