Try to imagine a 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 or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calender,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.
The fear of time running out.
-Mitch Albom, The Timekeeper
