Famous quotes containing the word watches:

    [Tolstoy] discovered—and certainly never realized his discovery—he discovered a method of picturing life which most pleasingly and exactly corresponds to our idea of time. He is the only writer I know of whose watch keeps time with numberless watches of his readers.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    A petty bureaucrat always watches his superior’s countenance, just as a boatman trims his sails according to the force of the wind.

    An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself. I am happy to be both halves, the watcher and the watched.
    Albert Camus (1913–1960)
