To sleep: perchance to dream ... [May. 2nd, 2004|01:17 am]
Peter Sheil
I'm just off to bed, so here are some quotes on "sleep"

Night night.

Life is something that happens when you can't get to sleep.
Fran Lebowitz (1950 - )

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

Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong.
George Carlin (1937 - )

California is the only state in the union where you can fall asleep under a rose bush in full bloom and freeze to death.
William Claude Dunkenfield (W. C. Fields)

Yes, there is a Nirvanah; it is leading your sheep to a green pasture, and in putting your child to sleep, and in writing the last line of your poem.
Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931), Essay on Robert Frost, quoted in N. Y.. Times: Obit-Editorial, April 1982

As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well used brings a happy death.
Leonardo Da Vinci (1452 - 1519)
