- "The amount of sleep required by the average person is five minutes more."
- -Wilson Mizener
- "And if tonight my soul may find her peace
in sleep, and sink in good oblivion,
and in the morning wake like a new-opened flower
then I have been dipped again in God, and new-created."
- -D.H. Lawrence
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."
- -William Shakespeare, Macbeth
