    Just concentrate on spending your time instead of wasting it, and you should be fine.

    It kind of depends on the context. Well invested money + time = more money. Poorly invested money + time = less money. Money can buy you time, but there will be times when money cannot help you. If I want to grow a tree, time is my greatest asset. Money can help me accelerate that growth, thus using less time to achieve the results I want, but that may not be necessary. As time goes on, money (specific denominations) loses value, if kept as cash.

    I won't know exactly what time it is if I cannot afford a watch. But, time carries on irrespective of whether or not I pay it any attention.

    It's nonsensical to claim one has more value than the other, unless you can apply it to a particular goal or circumstance.

    Time is only resource in life that is truly equal, we all have the same amount of time to make the best use of other resources to create opportunities for ourself. Others may have more or less money, but their time to work with what they have is the same as mine. I can always be assured that as long as I'm on this side of the grave, I'll always have the same amount of time as everyone else.

    I think one's perception on time is just as important as the use of one's time resources. What is boring and drawn-out for some is crucial time necessary for others.

    Money is earned and is traded for goods and services.

    Time is given and is traded for money, survival and investments in each other and endeavors.

    One thing I agree with is that you can never have time back.
