Starting Sunday, March 11, Americans will be getting an extra hour of sunlight when daylight saving time starts. Most of the United States will change their clocks at 2:00 a.m. Sunday, except for Hawaii and Arizona, which opted out of daylight saving time.

Other than Hawaii and Arizona, a handful of U.S. territories — including American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands — do not observe daylight saving time.

Here are some quotes about the annual time change from Search Quotes and Goodreads.
