    Well the saying is "time is money".  Who knows?

    Time is running out for all of us... you're heading for your grave so there's only so much of the stuff.  You're spending your time as you sleep and there's no getting it back, nor turning it back.

    But money can always be replaced.  So time is the more valuable.  How much would you pay to have your childhood back... hmmm?  No amount of money can buy it.

    Definitely time. Why? Money comes over time. Does time come over money? No.

    You can get more money if you will work for it. Can you get more time by any way?

    Money was invented by humans. Time is a law of physics in our universe.

    As a matter of fact, these things can't be compared, because of different origins. But from the other perspective you can't live without money. It's the part of our lives.

    Time is running out while there will always be enough money. Even if you don't have any, you can work to earn some more. But time can only be used once. A day comes and a day goes but it never comes again. No amount of money can change that.

    Time.  It is limited for each of us and the time limit is unknown.  It is best to make the most of the time you have.


    If you can fill the unforgiving minute
    With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
    Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
    And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

    To me its neither, it's what you do with time or money that has more value.If you waste the time that is given you, then it has no value. The same can be said for money, if you just throw it away then there again is no value.

    Time. It takes your precious time to make money. You can get more money but you can't get more time. You only have what is allotted to you and we don't ever really know how much that is.

    Definitely time.

    We can only have so much time.

    There are those who would say that time is money and they equate it in that manner.  For every moment they are distracted, they feel they are losing money thus I guess you could say that while money is their focus, they consider time to make it all the more important.  I think you have to put it into perspective...you could have all the money in the world and no time to enjoy it because of the responsibilites associated with making and managing it. Thus, the money starts to have little real value except for the feeling security and power it might bring to you...but no pleasure.  Having the time equates to have the health to enjoy what you have.  Humans are relatively simple beings and we can quickly enjoy ourselves on a relative scale.  Can you have more fun if you have a billion dollars than if you have only 100 million?  The question then comes down to how much is really enough for you to decide that money is no longer important but the time to enjoy it is.

    Time is definitely more valuable. Time is needed to earn money, but it is also needed to attain even more important things. For example God, family, friends, and personal attention all require time. Basically we have to allocate our time around everything we value, which, perhaps, makes time itself the most valuable resource we have.
