    —Anonymous Twelve-Year-Old. As quoted in Children’s Friendships by Zick Rubin, ch. 3 (1980)

    ... you can have a couple of seconds to rest in. I mean seconds. You have about two seconds to wait while the blanker is on the felt drawing the moisture out.

    Grace Clements, U.S. factory worker. As quoted in Working, book 5, by Studs Terkel (1973)

    Watching fifteen seconds of nasal passages unblocking sure beats watching thirty seconds.
    Barbara Lippert, U.S. advertising critic. As quoted in Newsweek magazine, p. 8 (June 16, 1986)
