1. “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

2. “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

3. “Daylight time, a monstrosity in timekeeping.” -- Harry S. Truman

4. “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

5. “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

6. “You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight saving time.” -- Dave Barry

7. “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

8. “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

9. “Daylight saving time occurs because Chuck Norris hits snooze on his alarm clock.” -- Unknown
