La gente siempre está ansiosa de saber qué es, incluso sabiendo qué es y qué hace.

¿El pensamiento?

You try to hurry to keep up with it. People say it flies but it has no wings. People ask: "where did it go" when it is always here.

I did not want to give this "flies" clue because it's easily associated with time, at least in English. I wonder if this saying "time flies" is common in many languages, is it a saying also in Spanish? and what about the phrase, "where did the time go?" Is there a similar saying in spanish or Italian?
Thanks

OK - what is made by somebody for somebody he does not know, and who does not want it, and does not know it when he is using it?
