 You work 8 hours to live 4.
You work 6 days to enjoy 1.
You work 8 hours to eat in 15 minutes.
You work 8 hours and sleep 5.
You work all year just to take a week or two vacation.
You work all your life to retire in old age, and contemplate only your last breaths.

Eventually you realize that life is nothing but a parody of yourself practicing your own oblivion.

We have become so accustomed to material and social slavery that we no longer see the chains. 

Life is a short journey, live it! 
There is no right time; the time is in the here and now.
