Laugh, and the world laughs with you; snore, and you sleep alone. - Anthony Burgess (1917 &endash; 1993)

Sleep is pain's easiest salve -- John Donne

That we are not much sicker and much madder than we are is due exclusively to that most blessed and blessing of all natural graces, sleep.-Aldous Huxley

I look back on my life with regret. All those wasted years. All that time spent awake. ---from a Garfield cartoon by Jim Davis, showing Garfield napping peacefully

The amount of sleep needed by the average person is five minutes more --Max Kauffman

Sleep, that knits up the ravell'd sleave of care.
The death of each day's life, sore labour's bath,
Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,
Chief nourisher in life's feast.
Shakespeare: Macbeth, Act II, Scene 2
