“I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.” −Douglas Adams

 An object in motion tends to stay in motion, unless and until it hits a wall.

“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.” −Sydney J. Harris

The wall is a metaphor of artificial time barriers.

“Creating unnecessary deadlines results in deadened ideas and people.” −Manning Rubin

The metaphor is geared to a cuckoo device.  

“They took away time, and they gave us the clock.” −Abdullah Ibrahim The device is a notched candle, sand in a glass dumbbell, a dial in the sun.

“A clock is a little machine that shuts us out from the wonder of time.” −Susan Glaspell

It may have a pretty face, but its charms are falsely alarming.

“A watched clock never tells the time.” −Welsh proverbOf course, clock-watchers are motivated to strap on the entrapping contraption

“Time is money.” Benjamin Franklin Unshackle it, though, and something wonderful happens. 

“Clocks slay time… time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life.” William Faulkner

And that wonderful something never ceases to save the day.

“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.” −Lao-Tzu

 Admittedly, our way through time’s illusions could sound like Paolo Conte singing an Italian verse with an English chorus and a Gibberish bridge.

“The cuckoo who is onto himself is half way out of the clock.” −Wilson Mizner

But it’s wonderful. Like watching the LAUGHSAVER movie with your sound on,

What’s Time?— Q&A—Why Worry?
