Friends! Never take your watch with you. The sun will well undertake to give you the signal of the decent and, if he is in holidays on this day, here is the opportunity to improve your intuition of time which shepherds still have but which townsmen in most cases have lost. Or if the habit is too strong, if you can absolutely not part with that vice, then hide it far in the bottom of your bag, this deadly heart, this mechanism of age which each second grows fat from your own substance; and use it only at the last extremity. I do not know if happy people have not got a shirt. But, for sure, they are watchless. And that our civilization will die from an excess of watches: there is no doubt anymore.
