Whenever I here a theme of time I tend to think of the quote in the arch and the White Rabbit as he stares at his fob watch. I remember the quote too as I used to say it as a child whenever I was late getting home from being outside playing. Funny, that just popped into my head. But, I have never read the book! But I have a couple of friends to thank for a very late interest in it. Unfortunately I will probably never have the time to read it now.
