All in Due Time

It has been aptly said that the seven units of time, namely, seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years, constitute seven great fears of mankind. How true it is that an unwise bondage to this insidious septet entails a weary train of undesirable consequents, including haste, pressure, worry, fear, and friction!

A writer may be peacefully engaged in his work, when suddenly a familiar but unwelcome call comes from a well-meaning member of the household: "Do you realize that you have just three minutes to catch that train?" The sweet sense of serenity, into which no thought of time has penetrated, where constructive thoughts have been gathering and forming in the work so dearly loved, gives reluctant place to the scramble of muscle and momentum increased by the iron rod of that tyrannical "three minutes" that lands him, triumphant perhaps, but more or less confused, in the departing train.
