Which is Better - Time or Money?

They say, Time is Money...but I don't agree...

There are times when we spend money to save our time. For instance, we choose to fly to a destination instead of going by train. This simply saves our time, but not our money...

What is more important in our lives? Time or money..?

One of my friends, Sahil told me one day," We realize the importance of things only when they are temporarily not available".

So, do you think a billionaire values money more than a beggar does?

Or, is it that we make the most of our time when it is available in pleanty? For instance, students get one full year to study for their annual exams...But it is unlikely that anybody would value that one year of time...

But, once the exams start approaching...it is then that the value of time is truly understood.

Same is the case with money...He who works hard to earn every penny would obviously think twice before spending. This won't be the case with people who have inherited wealth from their previous generations...

As a matter of fact, we need to maintain the right balance between time and money.

These are all my viewpoints...

So, what would you say about time and money? Is time important or money? Which is the better one?

...And how would the judicious use of time and money benefit our nation?
