Time Is Money

Time Is Money este un aforism care își are originea în „Sfat pentru un tânăr negustor”, un eseu de Benjamin Franklin apărut în cartea lui George Fisher din 1748, “The American Instructor: or Young Man’s Best Companion”, în care Franklin a scris: „Amintiți-vă că timpul este bani.”

În original:

“Remember that time is money. He that can earn ten shillings a day by his labour, and goes abroad, or sits idle one half of that day, though he spends but sixpence during his diversion or idleness, it ought not to be reckoned the only expence; he hath really spent or thrown away five shillings besides.”
