Who needs sleep?

I finally got a great nights rest last night and boy was it refreshing!  Normally I am up at 2:30AM in the morning but this day I was able to sleep in until 9AM!!!  Awesomeness indeed!!!

I came across a funny list of sleep quotes the other day when I was looking for something to share and thought I would share these with you… some make you think, others will make you laugh out loud… enjoy!

It’s a cruel season that makes you get ready for bed while it’s light out.  ~Bill Watterson

The bed is a bundle of paradoxes:  we go to it with reluctance, yet we quit it with regret; we make up our minds every night to leave it early, but we make up our bodies every morning to keep it late.  ~Charles Caleb Colton

Life is too short to sleep on low thread-count sheets.  ~Leah Stussy

Most people do not consider dawn to be an attractive experience – unless they are still up.  ~Ellen Goodman

A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor’s book.  ~Irish Proverb  

Now, blessings light on him that first invented sleep!  It covers a man all over, thoughts and all, like a cloak; it is meat for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, heat for the cold, and cold for the hot.  It is the current coin that purchases all the pleasures of the world cheap, and the balance that sets the king and the shepherd, the fool and the wise man, even.  ~Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote, 1605

Until next time get lots of blessed sleep so you can truly enjoy your days, Joe
