There are some things which cannot be learned quickly, and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring. They are the very simplest things and because it takes a man’s life to know them, the little new that each man gets from life is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave.

This clock represents time and the role it plays in the novel. The novel is told in a non chronological order which represents the absurdity of time. In truth, time, in the novel as well as real life, is simply a man-made illusion and truly means noting unless one decides it does.
