20 Sleep Quotes from Literature

"He wanted all to lie in an ecstasy of peace; I wanted all to sparkle and dance in a glorious jubilee. I said his heaven would be only half alive; and he said mine would be drunk: I said I should fall asleep in his; and he said he could not breathe in mine." ~ Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte A good night sleep, or a ten minute bawl, or a pint of chocolate ice cream, or all three together, is good medicine. ~ Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury In the middle of the night she woke up dreaming of huge white heads like turnips, that came trailing after her, at the end of interminable necks, and with vast black eyes. But being a sensible woman, she subdued her terrors and turned over and went to sleep again. ~ The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells "Sleep is good," he said. "And books are better." ~ A Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin "Give me honorable enemies rather than ambitious ones, and I'll sleep more easily by night." ~ A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin I shall never sleep calmly again when I think of the horrors that lurk ceaselessly behind life in time and in space, and of those unhallowed blasphemies from elder stars which dream beneath the sea, known and favoured by a nightmare cult ready and eager to loose them upon the world whenever another earthquake shall heave their monstrous stone city again to the sun and air. ~ The Call of Cthulhu by H. P. Lovecraft The sigh of all the seas breaking in measure round the isles soothed them; the night wrapped them; nothing broke their sleep, until, the birds beginning and the dawn weaving their thin voices in to its whiteness. ~ To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf But sleep, in the long run, proves greater than all emotions. ~ The Wendigo by Algernon Blackwood Sleep went quite away. I used to rise in the night, look round for her, beseech her earnestly to return. A rattle of the window, a cry of the blast only replied---Sleep never came! ~ Villette by Charlotte Bronte We rose up betimes, for sleep weighs lightly on the hopeful as well as on the anxious. ~ The Swiss Family Robinson by Johann D. Wyss
