WASTE
[ Also see Conservation Consumption Economy Environment Loss ]

Who loses a day loses life.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Waste cannot be accurately told, though we are sensible how destructive it is. Economy, on the one hand, by which a certain income is made to maintain a man genteelly; and waste, on the other, by which on the same income another man lives shabbily, cannot be defined. It is a very nice thing; as one man wears his coat out much sooner than another, we cannot tell how.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Wasting a fortune is evaporation by a thousand imperceptible means.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Oh! waste thou not the smallest thing,
  Created by Divinity;
    For grains of sand do mountains make,
      And atomies infinity;
        Waste thou not then, the smallest time,
          'Tis imbecile infirmity,
            For well thou know'st, if aught thou know'st,
              That seconds form eternity.
      - Edward F. Knight

Nothing is wasted.
      - Edward Verrall Lucas

Don't water your weeds.
      - Harvey MacKay

More water glideth by the mill
  Than wots the miller of.
      - William Shakespeare

We burn daylight.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Merry Wives of Windsor
         (Mistress Ford at II, i)

Time elaborately thrown away.
      - Edward Young
