Time is Life.
From a letter to The Times:
--In "Modern German Duty: The Obligation to Play" (Letter From Europe, July 2), you write that "for many Europeans, leisure time is not just a break from work; it is the goal of it." To Americans, that attitude is an endless source of disapproving amazement. I remember an American boss who used to repeat that "time is money." I retorted once that "time is life," but he didn't understand, although he was a very bright guy. Apparently, he would rather make money than live.--
I can't even bring myself to laugh at this: at the stupidity of the American boss or that of the reporter who wrote the story.
