Well Said: Buying Time

It would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them; but one usually confuses the purchase of books with the acquisition of their contents.
Arthur Schopenhauer
Oh, that's why I have big stacks of books and still keep buying more. I forget to pick up a little time while I'm at it.


  1. Even if we don't get around to reading them, we can take heart from the words of Auntie Mame (I think): "Books are so decorative."

  2. Time/no money; or money/ no time.
