In Context

“Carlyle often mused on the strange fact that the clock strikes to mark the change from hour to hour but no hammer in the horologe of time peals through the universe to announce the change from era to era.”

Max Freedman, “Much Sensible Advice Available for New Year If One Will Take It,” Los Angeles Times, January 2, 1964.
