No one owns time

Today´s quotation is from Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Moon´s book: Generation Warrior.

“The Master Adept spoke, his voice hardly louder than that splash. “It is what we identify as lost which brings us into concern, Adept Lunzie. When one knows that one owns nothing, nothing can be lost, and nothing mourned.” Her mind shied from that as from hot metal: instant rejection. He had never had a child, and they had had this discussion before. “I am not speaking of your child, “; he said. “A mother’s instinct is beyond training, so it must be. But the years you have lost, that you can call yours: no one owns time, no one can claim even an instant.”
