Definition of Clock

Clock

  1. A machine for measuring time, indicating the hour and other divisions by means of hands moving on a dial plate. Its works are moved by a weight or a spring, and it is often so constructed as to tell the hour by the stroke of a hammer on a bell. It is not adapted, like the watch, to be carried on the person.
  2. A watch, esp. one that strikes.
  3. The striking of a clock.
  4. A figure or figured work on the ankle or side of a stocking.
  5. To ornament with figured work, as the side of a stocking.
  6. To call, as a hen. See Cluck.
  7. A large beetle, esp. the European dung beetle (Scarabaeus stercorarius).

Every so often, we all gaze into the abyss. It's a depressing fact of life that eventually the clock expires; eventually the sand in the hourglass runs out. It's the leaving behind of everything that matters to us that hurts the most.
Ben Shapiro

It's a wise man who understands that every day is a new beginning, because boy, how many mistakes do you make in a day? I don't know about you, but I make plenty. You can't turn the clock back, so you have to look ahead.
Mel Gibson

Time management is an oxymoron. Time is beyond our control, and the clock keeps ticking regardless of how we lead our lives. Priority management is the answer to maximizing the time we have.
John C. Maxwell
