Southeast of Conservatory Water is a curved white granite bench dedicated to Waldo Hutchins, a member of the original Board of Commissioners for Central Park. It bears a Latin inscription: Alteri vivas oportet si vis tibi vivere (One must live for another if he wishes to live for himself). A small sundial at the back of the bench bears another Latin inscription: Ne diruatur fuga temporum (Let it not be destroyed by the passage of time).
