A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of “Time and Tide Wait For None”.
Time and tide wait for none is a famous adage known by all. Google, in fact, defines it to be “if you don’t make use of a favourable opportunity, you may never get the same chance again.”
This is a phrase that thus has similar connotations to the proverb “make hay while the sun shines.” That is, it reiterates the value of time.
If one were to be lazy and not make proper use of the time that is available to them at the present, then in the future, they would surely regret letting the time go to waste. This is elaborated by comparing time with tide wherein both are said to move on whether or not human beings want it to or not. Time is thus regarded akin to a force of nature.
