In its early stages, insomnia is almost an oasis in which those who have to think or suffer darkly take refuge. (Quote by - Colette)

It's at night, when perhaps we should be dreaming, that the mind is most clear, that we are most able to hold all our life in the palm of our skull. I don't know if anyone has ever pointed out that great attraction of insomnia before, but it is so; the night seems to release a little more of our vast backward inheritance of instincts and feelings; as with the dawn, a little honey is allowed to ooze between the lips of the sandwich, a little of the stuff of dreams to drip into the waking mind. I wish I believed, as J. B. Priestley did, that consciousness continues after disembodiment or death, not forever, but for a long while. Three score years and ten is such a stingy ration of time, when there is so much time around. Perhaps that's why some of us are insomniacs; night is so precious that it would be pusillanimous to sleep all through it! A "bad night" is not always a bad thing. (Quote by - Brian W. Aldiss)

He who sleeps half a day has won half a life. (Quote by - Karl Kraus)

She slept the sleep of the just. (Quote by - Racine)

Sleep lingers all our lifetime about our eyes, as night hovers all day in the boughs of the fir-tree. (Quote by - Ralph Waldo Emerson)

The worst thing in the world is to try to sleep and not to. (Quote by - F. Scott Fitzgerald)

It appears that every man's insomnia is as different from his neighbour's as are their daytime hopes and aspirations. (Quote by - F. Scott Fitzgerald)

The man who says his evening prayer is a captain posting his sentinels. He can sleep. (Quote by - Charles Baudelaire)

I have these slumber parties with my father [Steve Tyler], and when we can't sleep we stay up all night trading beauty tips. He knows all about the good creams and masks. (Quote by - Liv Tyler)

Come to me now! O, come! benignest sleep! And fold me up, as evening doth a flower, From my vain self, and vain things which have power Upon my soul to make me smile or weep. And when thou comest, oh, like Death be deep. (Quote by - Patrick Proctor Alexander)

Thus have I had thee, as a dream doth flatter, In sleep a king, but, waking, no such matter. Sonnet 87 (Quote by - William Shakespeare)

SLEEP - Those little slices of death, how I loathe them. (Quote by - Edgar Allen Poe)

Once she [wife Cherie] goes to sleep it takes a minor nuclear explosion to wake her. (Quote by - Tony Blair)

Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom. (Quote by - Francis Bacon)

Indolence is the sleep of the mind. (Quote by - Luc De Vauvanargues)

Every closed eye is not sleeping, and every open eye is not seeing. (Quote by - Bill Cosby)

I suppose I have a really loose interpretation of "work," because I think that just being alive is so much work at something you don't always want to do. The machinery is always going. Even when you sleep. (Quote by - Andy Warhol)

I'm a tough girl, and I can go without a shower bot a week and be fine with that. But I will not sleep on dirty sheets. (Quote by - Charlize Theron)

Sleep is lovely, death is better still, not to have been born is of course the miracle. (Quote by - Heinrich Heine)

What probing deep Has ever solved the mystery of sleep? (Quote by - Thomas Bailey Aldrich)

It is a delicious moment, certainly, that of being well nestled in bed, and feeling that you shall drop gently to sleep. The good is to come, not past; the limbs have just been tired enough to render the remaining in one posture delightful; the labour of the day is gone (Quote by - Leigh Hunt)

Who has the fame to be an early riser may sleep till noon (Quote by - James Howell)

The feeling of sleepiness when you are not in bed, and can't get there, is the meanest feeling in the world. (Quote by - Edgar Watson Howe)

He giveth His beloved sleep. (Quote by - Bible)

Now I see the secret of making the best person: it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth. (Quote by - Walt Whitman)
