Famous quotes containing the word clocks:

    all the clocks in the city
    Began to whirr and chime:
    “O let not Time deceive you,
    You cannot conquer Time.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)

    When I woke, the town spoke.
    Birds and clocks and cross bells
    Dinned aside the coiling crowd,
    The reptile profligates in a flame,
    Spoilers and pokers of sleep....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    What a devil hast thou to do with the time of the day? Unless hours were cups of sack, and minutes capons, and clocks the
    tongues of bawds, and dials the signs of leaping-houses, and the blessed sun himself a fair hot wench in flame-colored
    taffeta, I see no reason why thou shouldst be so superfluous
    to demand the time of the day.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
