Time Is Priceless
A Zen Koan.
A Chinese emperor once asked his Zen teacher how he should pass the time. He felt his days were very long from sitting all day to receive the homage of others and engage in meetings.
The teacher wrote three responses on a piece of paper and gave it to the emperor:
Not twice this day
This day will not come again
Each minute is worth a priceless gem
