"I do not object to people looking at their watches while I am making a speech. But I strongly object when they start shaking them to make certain they are still going."

- Lord Birkett (1883 – 1962) 

British barrister, judge, politician and preacher who served as the alternate British judge during the Nuremberg Trials. As an alternate judge, Birkett was not allowed a vote at the Nuremberg Trials, but his opinion helped shape the final judgment.
