Key Words: To every thing there is a season
One of our members sent me the following in regard to punctuality.
1. I could never think well of a man’s intellectual or moral character if he was habitually unfaithful to his appointments. (Emnons)
2. Method is the very hinge of business; and there is no method without punctuality.
3. Appointments once made, become debts. If I have made an appointment with you, I owe you punctuality; I have no right to throw away your time, if I do my own. (Cecil)
4. I have always been a quarter of an hour before my time, and it has made a man of me. (Lord Nelson)
5. Want of punctuality is a want of virtue. (J. M. Mason)
6. I give it as my deliberate and solemn conviction that the individual who is habitually tardy in meeting an appointment, will never be respected or successful in life. (W. Fisk)
7. Every child should be taught (Proverbs 22:6) to pay all his debts, and to fulfill all his contracts, exactly in manner, completely in value, punctually at the time specified. Everything he has borrowed, he should be obliged to return.
William Shakespeare said, “Better to be three hours early than one minute late.” One’s promptness does affect his testimony.
