Vintage Timekeeping Proves You Can Go Back in Time
Sam Levenson, an American humorist, writer, teacher, and journalist had this to say about time — “Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.” We think Sam must have written that on a Monday morning, not a Friday afternoon at 3:00pm when he’d been slaving in the cubicle all week!
