Time

You can't save time
(where would you keep it?)

You can't make time
(from what would you craft it?)

You can't find time
(where would you look for it?)

You can't steal time
(from whom would you take it?)

You can only spend time
You can only spend time.

I love this, Dan. I immediately thought of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party:

"I think you might do something better with your time," [Alice] said, "than wasting it in asking riddles that have no answers."

"If you knew Time as well as I do," said the Hatter, "you wouldn't talk about wasting it. It's him."
...

Alice cautiously replied, "... I know I have to beat time when I learn music."

"Ah! That accounts for it," said the Hatter. "He won't stand beating."

Thanks! I love the Alice excerpt - too cool! I'll have to remember Time is a Him... :)
