Imagine life without timekeeping


 

You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall and on the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie.

Yet all around you timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check his watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays.

Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour.

And because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures.

A fear of time running out
