Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Quote – Caring For Money & Time

Updated on October 12th, 2021

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, “Many people take no care of their money till they come nearly to the end of it, and others do just the same with their time.”

Money and time, two very precious commodities. Money, for many, is rather hard to earn, thus it should be ‘cared for’ and saved as best as we are able. Not squandered and then only actually thought about when rent is due and we have less than half in the bank account. And time… I myself have unfortunately been known to procrastinate, and nobody is perfect, but we all should value time because it’s the one commodity we will never be able to get back. As cliche as this might sound, ‘time is precious’ so don’t waste it.
