One quote that many people like to repeat about sleep in this busy day and age is that “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” This quote is misguided at best. We at Restwell Mattress in St. Louis Park, MN, know that people do not function well when they lack sleep. Enjoyment and effectiveness both decline. Here are some famous quotes about sleep cited by the people at our mattress factory direct in St. Louis Park.
“I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?” Ernest “Papa” Hemingway, author of The Sun Also Rises. His turbulent life reminds us that sleep allows people to forget the worries of the day.
“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.” Activist Gandhi reminds us that sleep is rejuvenating and gives us the opportunity to start fresh.
“No day is so bad it can’t be fixed with a nap.” Carrie Snow, story editor for the TV show Roseanne, reminds us about the healing power that sleep has. Even a small nap can effect a positive change in the day.
“There is more refreshment and stimulation in a nap, even of the briefest, than in all the alcohol ever distilled.” The Economist editor Edward Lucas lets us know that a nap will increase energy and help a person be fresher than alcohol ever could. Even better, sleep doesn’t have the addictive qualities that alcohol has, and it doesn’t impair judgement after it is “consumed.”
“A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.” This Irish proverb adds sleep along with laughter to the list of best medicines. You may not always be able to find someone to laugh with, but a good bed and soft pillow don’t have to be far away.
“Sleep that knits up the ravelled sleave of care
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.”
A good set of quotes is never complete without one from the bard himself. William Shakespeare wrote about what sleep can bring to a person in his play Macbeth. Even 5 centuries ago, people knew how important sleep could be.
“Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone.” Anthony Burgess, author of A Clockwork Orange. A funny look at sleep only because it is true. Of course, the right mattress from a mattress factory direct in St. Louis Park can help you tame the snoring beast.
