My english lit. Teacher told me about a philosopher who had a grandfather clock made for him. Instead of the clock ringing or making a bell-like sound, it spoke out, "___hours and ___minutes closer to death." My teacher doesn't know the time period which this philosopher lived, or even has a clue about who he was. Anyone happen to have an idea? I've tried researching it but I can't find any info about it.
