We think very little of time present; we anticipate the future, as being too slow, and with a view to hasten it onward, we recall the past to stay it as too swiftly gone. We are so thoughtless, that we thus wander through the hours which are not here, regardless only of the moment that is actually our own.

    çok az zaman olduğunu düşünüyoruz; Geleceği çok yavaş olarak tahmin ediyoruz ve onu ileriye götürmek amacıyla, çok hızlı bir şekilde gitmiş olarak kalmak için geçmişi hatırlıyoruz. O kadar düşüncesiziz ki, böylece sadece bizim olan anımızdan bağımsız olarak, burada olmayan saatlerde dolaşırız.

    ہم موجودہ وقت کا بہت کم خیال کرتے ہیں۔ ہم مستقبل کی پیش گوئی کرتے ہیں ، کیونکہ یہ بہت ہی آہستہ ہے ، اور اسے جلدی کرنے کے پیش نظر ، ہم ماضی کو یاد کرتے ہیں کہ اسے بہت تیزی سے چلا گیا۔ ہم اتنے لاپرواہ ہیں ، کہ ہم اس طرح ان گھنٹوں میں گھومتے ہیں جو یہاں نہیں ہیں ، قطع نظر صرف اس لمحے سے جو حقیقت میں ہمارا اپنا ہے۔
