Busiest People

The feeling of being hurried is not usually the result of living a full life and having no time.  It is on the contrary born of a vague fear that we are wasting our life.  When we do not do the one thing that we ought to do, we have no time for anything else -- we are the busiest people in the world.

-- Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983), American writer on social and political philosophy, Reflections on the Human Condition (1973), section 156
