Quote of the Day (Alan Burdick, on Seconds, ‘The Currency of Modern Life’)

“Increasingly our days are governed by seconds. They are the currency of modern life, the pennies of our time: ubiquitous and critical in a pinch (for instance, when you just manage to make a train connection) yet sufficiently marginal to be frittered away or dropped by the handful without thought.”— New Yorker staff writer Alan Burdick, Why Time Flies: A Mostly Scientific Investigation (2016)
