„He sets a thief to guard his purse
Who trusts a dial with his hours“

— Robertson Davies, Context: He sets a thief to guard his purse Who trusts a dial with his hours Or bids a sand-glass bleed away his nights, His days, his loves, his pleasures and his powers. The burthen of his years Is Time's soft footfall, Time's soft Falling Through his joys and tears.
