My Grandfather married a SADLER and they moved on to Dorking in Surrey. Others lost loved ones in the Great War, one family losing 2 sons within months of each other. Another lost 3 children soon after birth. Occupations were predominantly Ag Labs but a few lucky ones acquired trades mostly Wheelwrights, Carpenters and Joiners.

Imagine there is a bank that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day, every evening it deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do ??   Draw out every cent of course!!

Each of us has such a bank .It's called  "TIME"  Every morning it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to to invest to good purpose. It carries over no balance. It allows no overdraft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day. If you fail to use the day's deposits the loss is yours. There is no going back. There is no drawing against the  tomorrow  You must live in the "PRESENT" on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in "HEALTH"  "HAPPINESS" and "SUCCESS".

The clock is running, Make to most of "TODAY"

To realize the value of ONE YEAR,                         Ask a student who failed a grade

To realize the value of ONE MONTH,                    Ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of  ONE WEEK,                      Ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR,                       Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet

To realize the value of  ONE MINUTE,                  Ask a person who missed the train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND,                  Ask the person who just avoided an accident

To realize the value of of ONE MILLI-SECOND,  Ask the person who won the Silver Medal in the Olympics

Yesterday is "HISTORY"    Tomorrow is a "MYSTERY"   Today is yours to work on.
