Visuddhimagga VIII-32

Kālopi ‘‘imasmiṃyeva kāle maritabbaṃ, nāññasmi’’nti evaṃ vavatthānābhāvato animitto.


Ñ(VIII,32): And the time has no sign because there is no definition such as: One has to die only at this time, not at any other.

Pubbaṇhepi hi sattā maranti, majjhanhikādīnaṃ aññatarasmimpi.


Ñ: For beings die in the morning and at any of the other times such as noon.
