Schapansky Sleep quotes by Mary McCarthy
#1. The idea of Macbeth as a conscience-torm ented man is a platitude as false as Macbeth himself. Macbeth has no conscience. His main concern throughout the play is that most selfish of all concerns: to get a good night's sleep. #Quote by Mary McCarthy
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Michelle  Lynn
#2. Sadie, when you are finally ready to sleep with me, I promise you I won't leave your side the whole night. I will hold you close to me and when you wake up in the morning, it will be my face you see smiling back at you. We will have breakfast and shower, hopefully together. #Quote by Michelle Lynn
Schapansky Sleep quotes by William Shakespeare
#3. Then I'll play the happy fool and get laugh lines on my face. I'd rather overload my liver with wine than starve my heart by denying myself fun. Why should any living man sit still like a statue? Why should he sleep when he's awake? Why should he get ulcers from being crabby all the time? I love you, and I'm telling you this because I care about you, Antonio - there are men who always look serious. Their faces never move or show any expression, like stagnant ponds covered with scum. They're silent and stern, and they think they're wise and deep, important and respectable. When they talk, they think everybody else should keep quiet, and that even dogs should stop barking. I know a lot of men like that, Antonio. The only reason they're considered wise is because they don't say anything. I'm sure if they ever opened their mouths, everyone would see what fools they are. I'll talk to you more about this some other time. In the meantime, cheer up. Don't go around looking so glum. That's my opinion, but what do I know? I'm a fool. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Meg Haston
#4. But every time I near sleep, I'm scared shitless. Because the memories are coming faster now, pouring through me, as if I've broken the handle on the faucet. They are coming, no matter how much is hurts. And all I can do is hold my breath and try not to drown. #Quote by Meg Haston
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Haruki Murakami
#5. A regular wind-up toy world this is, I think. Once a day the wind-up bird has to come and wind the springs of this world. Alone in this fun house, only I grow old, a pale softball of death swelling inside me. Yet even as I sleep somewhere between Saturn and Uranus, wind-up birds everywhere are busy at work fulfilling their appointed rounds. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Leigh Hunt
#6. It is a delicious moment, certainly, that of being well nestled in bed, and feeling that you shall drop gently to sleep. The good is to come, not past; the limbs have just been tired enough to render the remaining in one posture delightful; the labour of the day is gone #Quote by Leigh Hunt
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Steven Pressfield
#7. A king does not abide within his tent while his men bleed and die upon the field. A king does not dine while his men go hungry, nor sleep when they stand at watch upon the wall. A king does not command his men's loyalty through fear nor purchase it with gold; he earns their love by the sweat of his own back and the pains he endures for their sake. That which comprises the harshest burden, a king lifts first and sets down last. A king does not require service of those he leads but provides it to them ... A king does not expend his substance to enslave men, but by his conduct and example makes them free. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Dean Lilleyman
#8. In this cell you are small. They've taken your belt and your shoelaces. You break a little. You put your hands over your face so they don't see. They don't listen when you shout for water, Please. Your tongue is so dry it feels too big for your mouth. You don't sleep. Someone behind the door shouts BASTARDS BASTARDS. You think you can see an old man crouched and watching you in that dark corner over there. You try and make spit to drink but you can't. In the morning they give you half a plastic cup of warm water. Across your tongue they drag a cotton bud which they drop into a plastic bag with your name on it. They take your fingerprints, your photograph, and then when you get home, she tells you she's pregnant. #Quote by Dean Lilleyman
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Alfred Lord Tennyson
#9. Music that gentlier on the spirit lies, Than tired eyelids upon tired eyes. #Quote by Alfred Lord Tennyson
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Charles Bukowski
#10. When you take it away do it slowly and easily make it as if I were dying in my sleep instead of in my life, amen. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Bill Crawford
#11. Sleep is simply a chemical change in our brain and body (melatonin) - It?s not a place we go, it is a state of being that we fall into. #Quote by Bill Crawford
Schapansky Sleep quotes by W. W. Rouse Ball
#12. The manner of Demoivre's death has a certain interest for psychologists. Shortly before it, he declared that it was necessary for him to sleep some ten minutes or a quarter of an hour longer each day than the preceding one: the day after he had thus reached a total of something over twenty-three hours he slept up to the limit of twenty-four hours, and then died in his sleep. #Quote by W. W. Rouse Ball
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Hamza Yusuf
#13. The Prophet once said to his Companions, "Do you want to see a man of Paradise?" A man then passed by, and the Prophet said, "That man is of the people of Paradise." One of Companion of the Prophet wanted to find out what it was about this man that earned him such a commendation from the Messenger of God , so he decided to spend some time with this man and observe him closely. He noticed that this man did not perform the night prayer vigil (tahajjud) or do anything extraordinary. He appeared to be an average man of Medina. The Companion finally told the man what the Prophet had said about him and asked if he did anything special. The man replied, "The only thing that I can think of, other than what everybody else does, is that I make sure that I never sleep with any rancor in my heart towards another." That was his secret. #Quote by Hamza Yusuf
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Michael Robotham
#14. I normally sleep very well, but when I do have bad dreams, they always involve my children. #Quote by Michael Robotham
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Malcolm X
#15. The black masses want not to be shrunk from as though they are plague-ridden. They want not to be walled up in slums, in the ghettos, like animals. They want to live in an open, free society where they can walk with their heads up, like men, and women! Few white people realize that many black people today dislike and avoid spending more time than they must about white people. This 'integration' image, as it is popularly interpreted, has millions of vain, self-exalted white people convinced that black people want to sleep in bed with them - and that's a lie! #Quote by Malcolm X
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#16. If they can't survive alone for four days once a year, they deserve to die. (Acheron)
That's harsh, for you. (Dante)
Harsh? Tell you what, you take my phone and skim through the three thousand phone calls I get every day and night and see how harsh I am. I truly hate modern technology and phones in particular. I haven't had a full four hours of sleep in over fifty years. 'Ash, I broke a toenail, help me. Ash, my head hurts, what should I do?' (Acheron) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Darby Conley
#17. It's hard to take over the world when you sleep 20 hours a day. #Quote by Darby Conley
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Shonda Rhimes
#18. Like every other mother on the planet, from the moment my first baby entered the house, I stopped getting real sleep. Motherhood means I'm always a little bit awake, a little bit alert at all times. One eye open. So #Quote by Shonda Rhimes
Schapansky Sleep quotes by M. Night Shyamalan
#19. Giving should be a part of your routine, just like working out, eating, and sleeping. #Quote by M. Night Shyamalan
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Mary Mary
#20. I sent a message in the wind, when the birds sang their song. And when you went to sleep last night, I told the moon, "Shine all night long". Just wanted you to talk to me, and I know it's been a while. And to answer your uestion, you are still my child. #Quote by Mary Mary
Schapansky Sleep quotes by J.L. Merrow
#21. I like everything about you, Larry. I like the way you look and how you're so clever, and I like it when we laugh together and watch TV together. I like going to art galleries with you and hearing you get all bitchy about some of the artists. I like watching you when you're doing marking, 'cause you get these funny looks on your face. I like watching you sleep and hearing that snuffly noise you make. I like waking up with you at weekends and spending the day together, just doing stuff like walking round town and shopping and cooking and stuff." I kind of ran out of breath after that.
For a moment, I thought he was going to cry."Is there anything you don't like about me? #Quote by J.L. Merrow
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Nick Miller
#22. I'd begun to grow weary of my constant daydreaming because, as I retreated more often into fantasy, it had become a reminder of my growing discontent with real life. And my thoughts, after very little sleep, seemed to float even further into the realm of the superfluous. #Quote by Nick Miller
Schapansky Sleep quotes by J.K. Rowling
#23. To Miss Granger, wishing you a speedy recovery, from your concerned teacher, Professor Gilderoy Lockhart, Order of Merlin, Third Class, Honorary Member of the Dark Force Defense League, and five-time winner of Witch Weekly's Most-Charming-Smile Award." Ron looked up at Hermione, disgusted. "You sleep with this under your pillow? #Quote by J.K. Rowling

#25. He had come to believe that life was a series of ironic ambushes. #Quote by Stephen King
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Thomas Ligotti
#26. All of the myths of mankind are nothing but show business,' the other man said to me during our initial meeting. 'Everything that we supposedly live by and supposedly die by - whether it's religious scriptures or makeshift slogans - all of it is show business. The rise and fall of empires - show business. Science, philosophy, all of the disciplines under the sun, and even the sun itself, as well as all those other clumps of matter wobbling about in the blackness up there - ' he said to me, pointing out the window beside the coffee-shop booth in which we sat, 'show business, show business, show business.' 'And what about dreams?' I asked, thinking I might have hit upon an exception to his dogmatic view, or at least one that he would accept as such. 'You mean the dreams of the sort we are having at this moment or the ones we have when we're fortunate enough to sleep? #Quote by Thomas Ligotti
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Ruby Rowe
#27. Oh, and my damn head hurts from the fall, so can we finally go to sleep? I've had all the 'feelings' I can take for one day.'
'I'm falling in love with you.'
'F***. #Quote by Ruby Rowe
Schapansky Sleep quotes by E.L. James
#28. frustration at myself in the mirror. Damn my hair - it just won't behave, and damn Katherine Kavanagh for being ill and subjecting me to this ordeal. I should be studying for my final exams, which are next week, yet here I am trying to brush my hair into submission. I must not sleep with it wet. I must not sleep with it wet. Reciting this mantra several times, I attempt, once more, to bring it under control with the brush. I roll my eyes in exasperation and gaze at the pale, brown-haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face staring back at me, and give up. My only option is to restrain my wayward #Quote by E.L. James
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Franz Kafka
#29. He slid back again into his earlier position. "This getting up early," he thought, "makes a man quite idiotic. A man must have his sleep. Other travelling salesmen live like harem women. For instance, when I come back to the inn during the course of the morning to write up the necessary orders, these gentlemen are just sitting down to breakfast. If I were to try that with my boss, I'd be thrown out on the spot. Still, who knows whether that mightn't be really good for me? If I didn't hold back for my parents' sake, I'd have quit ages ago. I would've gone to the boss and told him just what I think from the bottom of my heart. He would've fallen right off his desk! How weird it is to sit up at that desk and talk down to the employee from way up there. The boss has trouble hearing, so the employee has to step up quite close to him. Anyway, I haven't completely given up that hope yet. Once I've got together the money to pay off my parents' debt to him - that should take another five or six years - I'll do it for sure. Then I'll make the big break. In any case, right now I have to get up. My train leaves at five o'clock #Quote by Franz Kafka
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Robert B. Leighton
#30. Let us rejoice that we are poor, And have no gold to keep: We do not need to bar the door Ere we can go to sleep. #Quote by Robert B. Leighton
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Juliette Binoche
#31. In a building with apartments, of course, you want to make connections. Life is easier that way. There's salt if you don't have salt; you can knock at someone's door, like in any city. But you know, you can hear the others, and you want to sleep, you get annoyed. #Quote by Juliette Binoche
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Laura Prepon
#32. I used to wear boxers and a tank top, but now I sleep in the nude. It's kind of weird, because I used to have to wear something to bed, whether it was a tank top or whatever. And now if I have any clothes at all on, it's really hard to get to sleep. #Quote by Laura Prepon
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Alexander MacLaren
#33. Did any of you, parents, ever hear your child wake from sleep with some panic fear and shriek the mother's name through the darkness? Was not that a more powerful appeal than all words? And, depend upon it, that the soul which cries aloud on God, "the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ," though it have "no language but a cry," will never call in vain. #Quote by Alexander MacLaren
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Archie Macpherson
#34. That's the kind he usually knocks in in his sleep - with his eyes closed. #Quote by Archie Macpherson
Schapansky Sleep quotes by James S.A. Corey
#35. It's what he does. Finds someone who has a sense of ethics and follows their lead," Naomi said. "It's how he tries not to be a monster." "Why would he try not to be a monster?" The sleep-slurred words were like a blanket. "Because he is one," Naomi said, her consciousness flickering across the line. It's why we get along. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Cynthia Hand
#36. G took another gulp, and thought about the best way to break the equestrian news.My dear, you know those four-legged majestical beasts of the land? Well, you married one!
No. That could not be the right approach.My sweet, have you ever had a difficult time deciding between man or beast? Well, now you don't have to!
Again, he thought better of this tactic.Sweet lady, there are those of us who sleep lying down, and those of us who sleep standing up. I can do both.
No.You know how some men claim to have another, perhaps hairier side?Have you ever cursed the fact that your loved one has just the two legs?Did you know that horses have incredible balance?Hey! What's that over there? And then he would gallop away. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Janene Wolsey Baadsgaard
#37. When I brought my first premature baby home, I was more than hypervigilant. I was afraid that if I stopped watching her, she would stop breathing and die. So I stared at her like a hawk, even peeking when I showered. After a few weeks of no sleep and constant anxiety, I realized I couldn't go on like this forever. So I got on my knees and cried. Then I asked God if He would watch over her while I slept. I had forgotten that God was already watching over both of us. #Quote by Janene Wolsey Baadsgaard
Schapansky Sleep quotes by James Lee Burke
#38. Albert never told anyone of what the guard did to him. But sometimes he smells the guard's stink in his sleep, a combination of chewing tobacco and hair oil and testosterone and dried sweat that had been ironed with starch into the clothes…Albert has always wanted to believe this emblematic moment in his life was regional in origin, born out of ignorance and fear and redneck cruelty, perhaps one even precipitated by his own recklessness, but he knows otherwise.

Albert has learned that certain injuries go deep into the soul, like a stone bruise, and that time does not eradicate them. He knows that the simian creature that lived in the guard and executioner took root many years ago in his own breast. He knows that under the right circumstances, Albert Hollister is capable of deeds no one would associate with the professor who taught creative writing at the University and whose presence at a faculty meeting was so innocuous it was not even remembered. #Quote by James Lee Burke
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Hávamál
#39. I know a ninth:

If through storms I need to protect my boat at sea,

I calm the wind on the wave and put all the sea to sleep. #Quote by Hávamál
Schapansky Sleep quotes by D.H. Lawrence
#40. But his dread was the nights when he could not sleep. Then it was awful indeed, when annihilation pressed in on him on every side. Then it was ghastly, to exist without having any life: lifeless, in the night, to exist. #Quote by D.H. Lawrence
Schapansky Sleep quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#41. God gave us sleep to remind us we are not him. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
