    25 Fascinating Photos Illustrating the Eternal Power of Time

    We are constantly on the go: work, house, children, hobbies.... Days go by and disappear in the abyss of lost memories. The things we did yesterday will very soon fade away. Everything becomes the past that we rarely recollect. The world keeps spinning around and this is just the here and now that we manage to focus on. Counting new wrinkles and grey hairs or celebrating our children's birthdays from time to time we realize how time flies. So slow down for a while and pay attention to all the important things, so you don't miss out on anything. One day it might be too late to regret.

    I hope that the gallery of images we have collected will help you picture the idea of time and the inevitability of its work.
