Daylight Saving Time, which refers to the practice of turning the clock backward as winter approaches and forward as the weather gets warmer, will happen again in most U.S. states from Sunday, March 10. This is usually done to have an extra hour of daylight in the afternoon and evening during the warmer months. Hence, starting Sunday, most of the states in the U.S. will turn their clocks forward at 2 a.m. to 3 a.m. The exceptions include Hawaii, Arizona and Puerto Rico.

Here are some quotes related to the practice from Search Quotes and Goodreads.

  1. “An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later.” - Winston Churchill
  2. “I don't really care how time is reckoned so long as there is some agreement about it, but I object to being told that I am saving daylight when my reason tells me that I am doing nothing of the kind. I even object to the implication that I am wasting something valuable if I stay in bed after the sun has risen. As an admirer of moonlight I resent the bossy insistence of those who want to reduce my time for enjoying it. At the back of the daylight saving scheme I detect the bony, blue-fingered hand of Puritanism, eager to push people into bed earlier, and get them up earlier, to make them healthy, wealthy and wise in spite of themselves.” - Robertson Davies
  3. “There are very few things in the world I hate more than Daylight Savings Time. It is the grand lie of time, the scourge of science, the blight on biological understanding.” - Michelle Franklin
  4. “Don’t forget it's daylight saving time. You spring forward, then you fall back. It's like Robert Downey Jr. getting out of bed.” - David Letterman
  5. “You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight saving time.” - Dave Barry
  6. “I don’t mind going back to daylight saving time. With inflation, the hour will be the only thing I've saved all year.” - Victor Borge
  7. “Daylight saving time: Only the government would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket, sew it to the bottom, and have a longer blanket.” - Anonymous
  8. “I say it is impossible that so sensible a people [citizens of Paris], under such circumstances, should have lived so long by the smoky, unwholesome and enormously expensive light of candles if they had really known that they might have had as much pure light of the sun for nothing.” - Benjamin Franklin
  9. “Daylight saving time occurs because Chuck Norris hits snooze on his alarm clock.” – Unknown
  10. “Daylight time, a monstrosity in timekeeping.” - Harry S. Truman
