C. S. LEWIS ON DAYLIGHT SAVINGS

I was going to include this quote in Saturday's post, but I couldn't find it online, and I knew my dad knew this quote, but it was 11:30 p.m. and I knew he had to get up early the next day (it would have been especially cruel to wake him the night before daylight savings begins!).  But he was kind enough to provide the quote yesterday, so here it is now:

"Plague on this nonsense of putting back the clock which has docked me of an hour's sleep and which for the next few weeks will give me darkness at shaving and dressing time when I want light and light after tea when it is an impertinence..."

(Letters, Feb 25, 1940)

You tell 'em, Clive.
