The Timekeeper - Mitch Albom

This quote was added by awesome7
There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.

I'm pretty sure plenty of animals do track time using the position of the sun, the seasons, and other regular cycles.
