“Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunderstorm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.” —Thomas Mann

  1. Interesting outlook. I think there are some significant rejoices for new years in any culture or religion. They are man made though and a construct of different societies.

  2. Well a time comes when it will and it doesn’t need to be appease to come up. Yeah, it we mortals that try to add one excitement or the other to it.

  3. Time will continue to do its bit of passing by,it is humans that will be all the way with it,with all its turning and twisting. A very passionate quote.

  4. Great share.. Whether we blow trumpets to signal the start of a new month or a new century, the honest truth is the clock keeps ticking..time keeps passing.. Its left for us to make good use of our time..time itself will not announce its passage..spot on..

  5. We don’t have control over time. Time keeps on ticking and we just have to live the most out of our lives.

  6. The quote holds true as it is a fact. This also the reason why time is one of the most neglected aspect in life. We all think that since it runs freely, it runs indefinitely. It does in a way, it’s just that our life doesn’t nor does our circumstance.
