Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: To the earnest soul, life is rich beyond price. When we think of all that we may do and become for humanity, how valuable time becomes and how short it seems! But the terms “long" and "short" have little meaning when applied to the life of the soul. We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; in feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart-throbs. The individual who most lives, thinks most, feels the noblest, and acts the best. Time misspent is not lived, but lost.
