“You are feeling very sleepy…”

Sparked by a friend’s comment today about how I don’t tend to sleep that much (it’s true – I usually get about five hours a night), here are some good quotes I’ve stored over the years about sleeping, bedtime and just, you know, going to bed:

“There was never a child so lovely but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.” — Ralph Waldorf Emerson

“I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?” — Ernest Hemingway

“I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.” — Eleanor Roosevelt

“A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and gets to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants to do.” — Bob Dylan

“My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.” — Cary Grant

These two are not as contradictory as I first thought, you know…

And, finally, dedicated to so many of my friends… and me.

“Every morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spent the rest of the day putting the pieces together.’ — Ray Bradbury

  1. Littlepurplegoth says:

    All horribly familiar… T’is my theory as to why I read so much….

  2. This posting seems to be my introduction to all of those quotations…and I fear the Bradbury may be the best-suited of the lot to my life.
