  1. “Time is money”

  2. None
  3. Really?

  4. Really? Antonio Candido July 24, 1918 May 12, 2017

  5. <blockquote>

  6. I think one of the most sinister things in the

    history of Western civilization is the famous saying attributed to Benjamin Franklin, “time is money”.
  7. This is a monstrosity. Time is not money. Time is

    the fabric of our life, it is this minute that is passing.
  8. In 10 minutes I'm older, in 20 minutes I'm closer

    to death. Therefore, I am entitled to this time.
  9. This time belongs to my affections. It is to love

    the woman I have chosen, to be loved by her. To spend with my friends, to read Machado de Assis. That is time.
  10. And precisely the struggle for the cultivation of working people

    is the struggle for the conquest of time as a universe of self-realization.
  11. The struggle for social justice begins with a claim of

    time: “I want to take advantage of my time so that I humanize myself”. Antonio Candido
