Posted on Facebook by Desmond T Doss Jr, son of the MOH winner:

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening, the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent? Of course! Each of us has such a bank, its name is TIME..

Every morning, it credits you 86,400 seconds. Every night, it writes off a loss. Whatever of this you failed to invest to a good purpose, It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day, it opens a new account for you. Each night, it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours.

There is no drawing against 'tomorrow.' You must live in the present...On today's deposits. Invest it, so as to get from it the utmost in happiness and health. The clock is running. Make the most of today...

“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

Amen, as I learn more about the progress of Parkinson's disease, those seconds become increasingly important to spend well.
