It is gone forever

"Our priorities are most visible in how we use our time. Someone has said, 'Three things never come back--the spent arrow, the spoken word, and the lost opportunity.' We cannot recycle or save the time allotted to us each day. With time, we have only one opportunity for choice, and then it is gone forever."

--Dallin H. Oaks, "Focus and Priorities"


  1. Wow! What a poignant reminder. Thanks so much!

  2. So very, very true! I think I'll sit down and do a spot check on everything taking up my time right now.

    I just dropped by to invite you to join me on Neighborhood and Friends, a great new social network for the discerning Latter-day Saint, where we gather to socialize, enjoy music, books, recipes, sports and more, all in a clean, safe environment. I'd love to see you there!

  3. Are you ok? Did something happen?

  4. Nope, nothing wrong. Sorry if that came across as depressing. I just thought it was a good quote and a good reminder to me to focus on how I use my time.
