The clock is a wonderful invention to remind us of mealtimes.-- Diogenes
L'horloge est une belle invention pour rappeler l'heure des repas. --Diogène Le Cynique

This Louis XIV style cartel keeps time on the mantel piece of sculptor Auguste Rodin's salon du temps, a small study leading into the dining room of his home, Villa des Brillants, in Meudon.

un cartel:  here, a wall clock
une horloge:  a clock
rappeler:  to remind somebody of something; to call back
un repas:  a meal
