We ask that you use appropriate capitalization and refrain from chatspeak (u for you). Thank you ... and welcome to the forum.my teacher gave it to me to translate it but idid not find any thing during my search.
"Man is not such a machine as a clock or a watch, which moves merely as it is moved"I actually found this sentence in several 19th-century grammar books by looking through Google Books
