Time: Friend or Foe?

Although I am not a Trekkie, I found myself watching Star Trek: Generations this weekend, and the following words really struck a chord with me… (no need to worry about the plot, who the character is etc, it’s the words that are important).

Picard: ‘Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives; but I rather believe that time is a companion that goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment because it will never come again.

What we leave behind is not as important as how we’ve lived, after all…we’re only mortal’.
