Sometimes we push ourselves in life and we end up suffering……from lack of sleep. It sad though, to go around without sleep. You enjoy life less. You never notice as much as you should and you never participate to your fullest.
Whatever sleep is, we all need it and it is a fundamental part of life. All creatures sleep; the birds, the fish and even plants! Scientists are still trying to find out what exactly happens to your body when you sleep. In the meantime, I will get some rest and hope that those poor fellows will not get sleepless nights trying to understand the mystery of sleep. As Thomas Bailey Aldrich said, ” What probing deep Has ever solved the mystery of sleep?”
Here are more quotes about sleep that I came across.
To achieve the impossible dream, try going to sleep.
Of all the thoughts of God that are Borne inward unto souls afar, Along the Psalmist’s music deep, Now tell me if that any is. For gift or grace, surpassing this– “He giveth His beloved sleep.”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Sleep hath its own world, A boundary between the things misnamed Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world, And a wide realm of wild reality, And dreams in their development have breath, And tears and tortures, and the touch of joy.
