Time is an invention made by man to comprehend eternity.

Time is the most valuable thing there is......

To realize the value of half a century or more: Ask the family of a beloved father and husband who has passed away.

To realize the value of one year: Ask a student who has failed a final exam.

To realize the value of a month: Ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of a week: Ask an editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of one hour: Ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of one minute: Ask a person who has missed the train, bus or plane.

To realize the value of one-second: Ask a person who has survived an accident.

To realize the value of one millisecond: Ask a person who has won a silver medal in the Olymics

Not sure where the above quote comes from. However, I would have thought that man introduced time in a vain event to control it, or at least measure / record his own activities.

In October, 1971, American physicists took four super-accurate atomic clocks, kept two on the ground and put two on commercial jets flying at 1000 kmh in opposite directions around Earth.

When the planes landed, the scientists found what they were hoping for: The clocks on the high-speed journeys were ticking a few billionths of a second behind their stationary friends.

Motion, it turns out, slows time - one of the funny effects of the law of relativity. At low speeds, the effect is slight and makes no difference to our daily lives.
