“1905年6月10日:假定时间不是数量,而是一种性质,就好像初升的月亮刚上树梢时所发出的那种夜的光辉。时间是存在的,但却无从量度。在一个无法测量时间的世界里,没有钟表,没有日历,也没有确定的约会。事件因其他的事件而引起,不按时间而发生。在石材和木料运到工地以后,房屋的建造于焉开始;当采石工人需要钱用了,采石场就送来石材。当律师的女儿笑他的头渐秃的时候,他就离家来到最高法院,为一个案子而辩论。学生考试及格以后,伯尔尼的中学教育即算完成。所有的车厢都装满了乘客的时候,火车才驶出广场车站。

在时间即性质的世界里,记事或凭天空的颜色,或凭婀娜河上船夫呼唤的音调,或是一个人走进屋时或快乐、或恐惧的感觉。一个婴儿的出生、一件发明的专利、两个人物的相遇,都不是分秒所记载下来的、时间之流中的几个定点;而是事件滑过想象的空间,因一凝视或一渴望而化为具体事实。同样地,两桩事件之间所距时间的长短,全凭这两桩事件背景的远近、光度的强弱、光线与阴影的深浅,以及参与其间人物的观点角度。”
