Insomnia Quotes By Marian Keyes

Insomnia is an enemy that attacks in many forms. Sometimes it shows up the moment I get into bed and lingers for a couple of hours. Other nights, it stays away until about 5 a.m. and then butts in and hangs around until twenty minutes before the alarm is due to go off. It's a full-time job, battling the fecker. — Marian Keyes

Insomnia Quotes By P.G. Wodehouse

I am strongly of the opinion that, after the age of twenty-one, a man ought not to be out of bed and awake at four in the morning. The hour breeds thought. At twenty-one, life being all future, it may be examined with impunity. But, at thirty, having become an uncomfortable mixture of future and past, it is a thing to be looked at only when the sun is high and the world full of warmth and optimism. — P.G. Wodehouse

Insomnia Quotes By Gabriel Garcia Marquez

The ancient priest who had taken Father Angel's place and whose name no one had bothered to find out awaited God's mercy stretched out casually in a hammock, tortured by arthritis and the insomnia of doubt while the lizards and rats fought over the inheritance of the nearby church. — Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Know what the best thing about insomnia is? That I get to stay up all night figuring it out. — Olivia Munn

Insomnia Quotes By Steven Magee

Staring at the blue sky causes insomnia to occur in the human — Steven Magee

Insomnia Quotes By Clifton Fadiman

Insomnia is a gross feeder. It will nourish itself on any kind of thinking, including thinking about not thinking. — Clifton Fadiman

Insomnia Quotes By Sean Sullivan

Insomnia is an increasing problem. I've become swayed that sleep disorders are conceivably the most unnoticed, ignored, underrated reason of health as well as performance problems in the place of work. — Sean Sullivan

Insomnia Quotes By Donna Lynn Hope

I try to distract myself from reality by wielding an active imagination. Then I have nightmares. — Donna Lynn Hope

Pack up all my care and woe, blackbird, bye-bye — Stephen King

Waking up was a daily cruelty, an affront, and she avoided it by not sleeping. — Gregory Maguire

Insomnia Quotes By William Shakespeare

You lack the season of all natures, sleep. — William Shakespeare

Insomnia Quotes By Ernest Hemingway,

Some made the long drop from the apartment or the office window; some took it quietly in two-car garages with the motor running; some used the native tradition of the Colt or Smith and Wesson; those well-constructed implements that end insomnia, terminate remorse, cure cancer, avoid bankruptcy, and blast an exit from intolerable positions by the pressure of a finger; those admirable American instruments so easily carried, so sure of effect, so well designed to end the American dream when it becomes a nightmare, their only drawback the mess they leave for relatives to clean up. — Ernest Hemingway,

Insomnia Quotes By Alaya Dawn Johnson

The kingdom of sleep demands its forfeits, and the world looks very different through eyes cracked and yellow with its denial. — Alaya Dawn Johnson

Insomnia Quotes By Abigail Roux

What are books good for?"
"Hitting intruders?" Nick mumbled. He rubbed his eyes again. "Doorstops. Insomnia. Special interrogation techniques. Silencing bedmates in the middle of the night. — Abigail Roux

Insomnia Quotes By Criss Jami

I feel as though whenever I create something, my Mr. Hyde wakes up in the middle of the night and starts thrashing it. I sometimes love it the next morning, but other times it is an abomination. — Criss Jami

Insomnia Quotes By Elizabeth Bishop


perhaps she's a daytime sleeper. — Elizabeth Bishop

Insomnia Quotes By Matthew Dickman

When I dance with him, one of my great loves, he is absolutely human, and when he turns to dip me or I step on his foot because we are both leading, I know that one of us will die first and the other will suffer. The slow dance of what's to come and the slow dance of insomnia pouring across the floor like bath water. — Matthew Dickman

Insomnia Quotes By Amanda Steele

Here, from her ashes you lay. A broken girl so lost in despondency that you know that even if she does find her way out of this labyrinth in hell, that she will never see, feel, taste, or touch life the same again. — Amanda Steele

Insomnia Quotes By Tracy Chevalier

It's a rare book that wins the battle against drooping eyelids. — Tracy Chevalier

Insomnia Quotes By Emile M. Cioran

Just as ecstasy purifies you of the particular and the contingent, leaving nothing except light and darkness, so insomnia kills off the multiplicity and diversity of the world, leaving you prey to your private obsessions. — Emile M. Cioran

Insomnia Quotes By Thomas Ligotti

That night I slept badly, thrashing about in my bed, not quite asleep and not quite awake. At times I had the feeling there was someone else in my bedroom who was talking to me, but of course I could not deal with this perception in any realistic way, since I was half-asleep and half-awake, and thus, for all practical purposes, I was out of my mind. — Thomas Ligotti

Insomnia Quotes By Henry Miller

Things happen or they don't happen, that's all. Nothing is accomplished by sweat and struggle. Nearly everything which we call life is just insomnia, an agony because we've lost the habit of falling asleep. We don't know how to let go. We're like a Jack-in-the-box perched on top of a spring and the more we struggle the harder it is to get back in the box. — Henry Miller

Insomnia Quotes By Jonathan Lethem

Insomnia is a variant of Tourette's
the waking brain races, sampling the world after the world has turned away, touching it everywhere, refusing to settle, to join the collective nod. The insomniac brain is a sort of conspiracy theorist as well, believing too much in its own paranoiac importance
as though if it were to blink, then doze, the world might be overrun by some encroaching calamity, which its obsessive musings are somehow fending off. — Jonathan Lethem

Insomnia Quotes By Chuck Palahniuk

Am I sleeping? Have I slept at all? This is insomnia. — Chuck Palahniuk

Insomnia Quotes By Emil Cioran

Insomnia is a vertiginous lucidity that can convert paradise itself into a place of torture. — Emil Cioran

Insomnia Quotes By Charles Bukowski

I have lost my rhythm.
I can't sleep.
I can't eat.
I have been robbed of
my filth. — Charles Bukowski

Insomnia Quotes By Chris Mc Geown

I crave stillness,
And yet I fear the moment
Stillness turns into boredom,
And the moment boredom
Turns into loneliness. — Chris Mc Geown

Insomnia Quotes By Jonathan Turley

I'm making tapes for insomniacs to use in the future. I'm going to sell them as a kit to cure insomnia. — Jonathan Turley

Insomnia Quotes By Vera Pavlova

A Remedy for Insomnia
Not sheep coming down the hills,
not cracks on the ceiling
count the ones you loved,
the former tenants of dreams
who would keep you awake,
once meant the world to you,
rocked you in their arms,
those who loved you ...
You will fall asleep, by dawn, in tears. — Vera Pavlova

Insomnia Quotes By Jai Uttal

I was tormenting myself last night with the insomnia and anyone who has insomnia knows that it often leads to anxiety and getting mad at ourselves, which makes it worse. And it's not just insomnia, in many instances in life. — Jai Uttal

Insomnia Quotes By Adrienne Rich

But it is the subjects, the conversations, the facts we shy away from, which claim us in the form of writer's block, as mere rhetoric, as hysteria, insomnia, and constriction of the throat. — Adrienne Rich

Insomnia Quotes By Doreen Virtue

Difficulties with concentration are correlated with sleep impairment, especially insomnia, arising from hypervigilance. The insomniac person is always on alert, which increases his or her stress-hormone levels and heart rate, and turns on the sympathetic nervous system. One of the roles of histamine, released in response to stress, is to ensure that you're wide-awake. These processes make relaxation and sleep difficult. — Doreen Virtue

Insomnia Quotes By Chuck Palahniuk

For six months I couldn't sleep. With insomnia, nothing's real. Everything is far away. Everything is a copy of a copy of a copy. — Chuck Palahniuk

Insomnia Quotes By Donna Lynn Hope

I'm awake and I can't sleep. The more I'm awake, the more I see, and the harder to sleep. — Donna Lynn Hope

Insomnia Quotes By Joyce Rachelle

I'm not an insomniac. It's just that my mind is in the best position to catch the weight of all hovering possibilities the moment I lie down. — Joyce Rachelle

Insomnia Quotes By Kristen Henderson

there's no way I can sleep in any position with so much still unwritten about the glory of basements, where,
with all the promise in crock pot boxes, small animals go to die, piles of laundry hide the machines, rusted tools fall into other rusted tools giving way to unsung sculpture, soiled playing cards and unmatched socks strewn atop a punched-out screen door make a shaggy parquet; and a famished, leggy fluorescent tube barely winks on the entire scene. — Kristen Henderson

Insomnia Quotes By Andy Behrman

Like Sylvia Plath, Natalie Jeanne Champagne invites you so close to the pain and agony of her life of mental illness and addiction, which leaves you gasping from shock and laughing moments later: this is both the beauty and unique nature of her storytelling. With brilliance and courage, the author's brave and candid chronicle travels where no other memoir about mental illness and addiction has gone before. The Third Sunrise is an incredible triumph and Natalie Jeanne Champagne is without a doubt the most important new voice in this genre. — Andy Behrman

Insomnia Quotes By Julian Young

He sank more and more into apathy; little interested him apart from dolls and other children's toys. He still spoke occasionally, but mainly to produce stock sentences in the style of a brainwashed schoolboy. Franziska made a record of some of them: 'I translated much'. 'I lived in a good place called Naumburg'. 'I swam in the Saale'. 'I was very fine because I lived in a fine house'. 'I love Bismarck'. 'I don't like Friedrich Nietzsche'. It would be a mercy to think that he experienced at least a kind of vegetative contentment, but this seems not to have been the case. He suffered from his life-long curse of insomnia, and visitors downstairs were often disturbed by groans and howls coming from the upstairs bedroom. Towards the end of Franziska recorded him uttering 'More light!' (Goethe's dying words) and 'In short, dead!' suggesting that that is what he wanted to be. — Julian Young

Insomnia Quotes By George Eliot

In bed our yesterdays are too oppressive: if a man can only get up, though it be but to whistle or to smoke, he has a present which offers some resistance to the past - sensations which assert themselves against tyrannous memories. — George Eliot

Insomnia Quotes By Maya Banks

I'm so exhausted and yet I feel like I'll never sleep again. — Maya Banks

Insomnia Quotes By Jaeda DeWalt

I thought calming thoughts and visualized serene places. Eventually, i found myself drifting along the frenetic edges of my mind. The Sandman was nowhere to be found, as i slipped further away from sleep. — Jaeda DeWalt

Insomnia Quotes By Irum Zahra


I wonder
If those talks matter
Few done in the clarity of day
Or the many
Done at 3 a.m. in the morning — Irum Zahra

Insomnia Quotes By Maggie Stiefvater

When Ronan thought of Gansey, he thought of moving into Monmouth Manufacturing, of nights spent in companionable insomnia, of a summer searching for a king, of Gansey asking the Gray Man for his life. Brothers. — Maggie Stiefvater

Insomnia Quotes By Jim Gaffigan

A three-year-old with insomnia is very similar to a heroin addict going through withdrawal. There is nothing that calms them. They can't focus. You can't tell them enough stories. They don't understand why they are still awake four hours past their bedtime. This is commonly understood by all parents of three-year-olds and has inspired great works of literature, such as Go the F-ck to Sleep. — Jim Gaffigan

Insomnia Quotes By Debi Gliori

There are whole months at a time when my head is so full of ideas that I wake in the middle of the night and lie in the dark telling myself stories. There are also long, dark nights when I just know I'll never write another word: I'm finished, empty, a husk ... Oh dear, yes, twitch, yawn, how I've suffered insomnia for my art. — Debi Gliori

Insomnia Quotes By Karl Kraus

When I want to go to sleep, I must first get a whole menagerie of voices to shut up. You wouldn't believe what a racket they make in my room. — Karl Kraus

Insomnia Quotes By Paulo Coelho

On some nights, he has nowhere to sleep, on others, he suffers from insomnia. "That's just how it is," thinks the Warrior. "I was the one who chose to walk this path. — Paulo Coelho

Insomnia Quotes By William Styron

A disruption of the circadian cycle - the metabolic and glandular rhythms that are central to our workaday life - seems to be involved in many, if not most, cases of depression; this is why brutal insomnia so often occurs and is most likely why each day's pattern of distress exhibits fairly predictable alternating periods of intensity and relief. — William Styron

Insomnia Quotes By Henry Channon

There is nowhere in the world where sleep is so deep as in the libraries of the House of Commons. — Henry Channon

Insomnia Quotes By Jon Krakauer

Rape and war, she explained are among the most common causes of post-traumatic stress disorder, and survivors of sexual assault frequently exhibit many of the same symptoms and behaviors as survivors of combat: flashbacks, insomnia, nightmares, hypervigilance, depression, isolation, suicidal thoughts, outbursts of anger, unrelenting anxiety, and an inability to shake the feeling that the world is spinning out of control. — Jon Krakauer

Insomnia Quotes By Anne Sexton

It is snowing and death bugs me
as stubborn as insomnia. — Anne Sexton

Insomnia Quotes By James Lee Burke

Those who live with insomnia and who consider sleep both an enemy and a gift will understand the following. Some of us cannot comprehend how anyone except the very good or those who have no conscience at all can sleep from dark to dawn without dreaming or waking. We hear William Blake's tiger padding softly through a green jungle, his stripes glowing, his whiskers spotted with gore. Psychoanalysis does no good. Neither does a health regimen that induces physical exhaustion. The only solution that is guaranteed is the one provided by our old friend Morpheus, who requires our souls in the bargain. — James Lee Burke

Insomnia Quotes By Aristotle.

For often, when one is asleep, there is something in consciousness which declares that what then presents itself is but a dream. — Aristotle.

Insomnia Quotes By Ahmed Mostafa

You're like a dream I never want to wake up from, but I; I'm insomniac! — Ahmed Mostafa

Insomnia Quotes By Jason Fried

Even short commutes stab at your happiness. According to the research,* commuting is associated with an increased risk of obesity, insomnia, stress, neck and back pain, high blood pressure, and other stress-related ills such as heart attacks and depression, and even divorce. But let's say we ignore the overwhelming evidence that commuting doesn't do a body good. Pretend it isn't bad for the environment either. Let — Jason Fried

Insomnia Quotes By Chuck Palahniuk

Three weeks and I hadn't slept. Three weeks without sleep, and everything becomes an out-of-body-experience. My doctor said, "Insomnia is just the symptom of something larger. Find out what's actually wrong. Listen to your body."
I just wanted to sleep. I wanted little blue Amytal Sodium capsules, 200-milligram-sized. I wanted red-and-blue Tuinal bullet capsules, lipstick-red Seconal. — Chuck Palahniuk

Insomnia Quotes By Hippocrates

Persons in whom a crisis takes place pass the night preceding the paroxysm uncomfortably, but the succeeding night generally more comfortably. — Hippocrates

Insomnia Quotes By Philip Sidney

Come Sleep! Oh Sleep, the certain knot of peace, the baiting-place of wit, the balm of woe, the poor man's wealth, the prisoner's release, the indifferent judge between the high and low. — Philip Sidney

Insomnia Quotes By Kjell Askildsen

The world is full of folly and confusion, the lack of freedom has deep roots, the hope for justice and equality is dwindling, the odds against us are too great, it seems. We should be glad to be as well off as we are, people say, most people are worse off. Then they take a pill for insomnia. Or depression. Or life. When will a new generation come, one that understands the importance of equality, a generation of gardeners and foresters who can fell the big trees that block the light for all the lesser ones, and who can remove the suckers from the tree of knowledge. — Kjell Askildsen

Insomnia Quotes By Carly Rae Jepsen

I know my music is going well when I don't have insomnia. — Carly Rae Jepsen

Insomnia Quotes By Ellen Goodman

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

Insomnia Quotes By Sam Maggs

(Surprisingly, the term has been around since at least 1782, when Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire, wrote in a letter to her mother that her "feels" made her cry and gave her insomnia, similar to how a modern fangirl might feel after finishing the Mass Effect trilogy.) Feels — Sam Maggs

Insomnia Quotes By Leonard Cohen

The last refuge of the insomniac is a sense of superiority to the sleeping world. — Leonard Cohen

Insomnia Quotes By Aulus Cornelius Celsus

Live in rooms full of light. Avoid heavy food. Be moderate in the drinking of wine. Take massage, baths, exercise, and gymnastics. Fight insomnia with gentle rocking or the sound of running water. Change surroundings and take long journeys. Strictly avoid frightening ideas. Indulge in cheerful conversation and amusements. Listen to music. — Aulus Cornelius Celsus

Insomnia Quotes By F Scott Fitzgerald

It appears that every man's insomnia is as different from his neighbours as are their daytime hopes and aspirations. — F Scott Fitzgerald

Insomnia Quotes By Antonio Tabucchi

I prefer insomnia to anaesthesia. — Antonio Tabucchi

Insomnia Quotes By Lorrie Moore

I had never feared insomnia before
like prison, wouldn't it just give you more time to read? — Lorrie Moore

Insomnia Quotes By Karen Russell

We've been working out of our tin can for half a decade. Nobody suggests moving into a brick-and-mortar office; nobody wants to peer through glass windows, in a building with a foundation, and admit that the insomnia emergency is now a permanent condition. — Karen Russell

Insomnia Quotes By D.D. Barant

I've got a bad case of the 3:00 am guilts - you know, when you lie in bed awake and replay all those things you didn't do right? Because, as we all know, nothing solves insomnia like a nice warm glass of regret, depression and self-loathing. — D.D. Barant

Insomnia Quotes By Theophile Gautier

(Decadent style) is ingenious, complicated, learned, full of shades of meaning and research, always pushing further the limits of language ... forcing itself to express in thought that which is most ineffable, and in form the vaguest and most fleeting contours; listening that it may translate them to the subtle confidences of the neuropath, to the avowals of aging and depraved passion, and to the singular hallucinations of the fixed idea verging on madness ... In opposition to the classic style, it admits of shading, and these shadows teem and swarm with the larvae of superstitions, the haggard phantoms of insomnia, nocturnal terrors, remorse which starts and turns back at the slightest noise, monstrous dreams stayed only by impotence, obscure phantasies at which daylight would stand amazed, and all that the soul conceals of the dark, the unformed, and the vaguely horrible, in its deepest and furthest recesses. — Theophile Gautier

Insomnia Quotes By Ursula K. Le Guin

People who sleep only two or three hours in the twenty-four are always geniuses. The ones you hear about, anyway. Never mind if the ones you don't hear about are dolts. Insomnia is genius. It must be. Think of all the work you could do the thoughts you could think, the books you could read, the love you could make, while the dull clods lie snoring. — Ursula K. Le Guin

Insomnia Quotes By Chuck Palahniuk

When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep, and you're never really awake. — Chuck Palahniuk

Insomnia Quotes By Nile Rodgers

I've had insomnia since I was five years old. I just don't require much sleep. I'm never tired. — Nile Rodgers

Insomnia Quotes By Emilie Autumn

Why can I never go back to bed? Who's is the voice ringing in my head? Where is the sense in these desperate dreams? Why should I wake when I'm half past dead? — Emilie Autumn

Insomnia Quotes By Sherrilyn Kenyon

Yeah. And Savitar predates him. He has presided over this council since the very beginning, and notice, Savitar looks about thirty. We don't know what he is, but he ain't one of us and he ain't human. And trust me, you don't want to mess with him. (Paris)
Thank you for that highly unamusing summation. Next time I have insomnia, I know who to call. In the meantime, little lioness who would probably like to live another year, don't interrupt me again. I don't like it and I tend to kill the things I don't like. (Savitar) — Sherrilyn Kenyon

Insomnia Quotes By William Shakespeare

O sleep, O gentle sleep, Nature's soft nurse, how have I frightened thee, 1710. That thou no more will weigh my eyelids down, And steep my senses in forgetfulness? — William Shakespeare

Insomnia Quotes By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Come, cuddle your head on my shoulder, dear, your head like the golden rod, and we will go sailing away from here to the beautiful Land Of Nod. — Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Insomnia Quotes By Lyudmila Ulitskaya

The insomnia I am talking about results from a mild state of possession, harmless to those around you, who sometimes even fail to notice it. It usually comes when you are completely engrossed in your work and overtakes you so completely that every aspect of your daily life becomes mechanical and provides only a colorless backdrop to action occurring only in your mind. It matters not whether at this time you are asleep or awake. The secret life pulses within you, and when you wake in the middle of the night you realize there is no way to stem its flow. — Lyudmila Ulitskaya

Insomnia Quotes By Morag Joss

I have patches of insomnia, and I'm fascinated by the otherness of the world at night. The stillness. Daytime preoccupations fall away, standards change, thoughts change. It's a canvas for reinvention, I think. — Morag Joss

Insomnia Quotes By Joyce Rachelle

Try staying awake for 24 hours and you'll realize just how many needless worries your mind instantly shuts out. — Joyce Rachelle

Insomnia Quotes By Densey Clyne

Counting your blessings is a better cure for insomnia than counting sheep - you can fall asleep before you get through half of them. — Densey Clyne

Insomnia Quotes By Kathy Kenney-Marshall

I cannot get to sleep tonight.
I toss and turn and flop.
I try to count some fluffy sheep
while o'er a fence they hop.
I try to think of pleasant dreams
of places really cool.
I don't know why I cannot sleep -
I slept just fine at school. — Kathy Kenney-Marshall

Insomnia Quotes By Adelheid Manefeldt

The endless ocean was his sole companion , and on some deeply sentimental level, it seemed sufficient. Almost apt. He aligned himself with Thoreau and Tolstoy, he felt like their peers. The kinship with nature devoted humans to a mythical state, a heightened persona beyond the reach of mere mortals. At least that was what he told himself on the lonely nights when insomnia played on his fears and the howling wind pierced through his soul. — Adelheid Manefeldt

Insomnia Quotes By William Goldman

I'm not about to argue with a full professor, but if you ever have a really unbreakable case of insomnia, do yourself a favor and start reading Chapter Three of the uncut version. — William Goldman

Insomnia Quotes By Nicole Holofcener

If a woman gets insomnia, you never know where you're going to find her furniture the next morning. It's primal. We have so little we can control, but we can perfect the way our room looks. — Nicole Holofcener

Insomnia Quotes By A.A. Milne

But [Pooh] couldn't sleep. The more he tried to sleep the more he couldn't. He tried counting Sheep, which is sometimes a good way of getting to sleep, and, as that was no good, he tried counting Heffalumps. And that was worse. Because every Heffalump that he counted was making straight for a pot of Pooh's honey, and eating it all. For some minutes he lay there miserably, but when the five hundred and eighty-seventh Heffalump was licking its jaws, and saying to itself, "Very good honey this, I don't know when I've tasted better," Pooh could bear it no longer. — A.A. Milne

Insomnia Quotes By Marcel Proust

Infirmity alone makes us take notice and learn, and enables us to analyse mechanisms of which otherwise we should know nothing. A man who falls straight into bed night after night, and ceases to live until the moment when he wakes and rises, will surely never dream of making, I don't say great discoveries, but even minor observations about sleep. He scarcely knows that he is asleep. A little insomnia is not without its value in making us appreciate sleep, in throwing a ray of light upon that darkness. An unfailing memory is not a very powerful incentive to the study of the phenomena of memory. — Marcel Proust

Insomnia Quotes By Vladimir Nabokov

He was afraid of touching his own wrist. He never attempted to sleep on his left side, even in those dismal hours of the night when the insomniac longs for a third side after trying the two he has. — Vladimir Nabokov

Insomnia Quotes By Shreya Gupta

That gap between half sleep and half awakening has always been occupied by nostalgia. — Shreya Gupta

Insomnia Quotes By Chuck Palahniuk

I tagged a first-timer one night at fight club. That Saturday night, a young guy with an angel's face came to his first fight club, and I tagged him for a fight. That's the rule. If it's your first night in fight club, you have to fight. I knew that so I tagged him because the insomnia was on again, and I was in a mood to destroy something beautiful. — Chuck Palahniuk

Insomnia Quotes By Ambrose Bierce

TZETZE (or TSETSE) FLY, n. An African insect ("Glossina morsitans") whose bite is commonly regarded as nature's most efficacious remedy for insomnia, though some patients prefer that of the American novelist ("Mendax interminabilis"). — Ambrose Bierce

Insomnia Quotes By Thomas Browne

We term sleep a death by which we may be literally said to die daily; in fine, so like death, I dare not trust it without my prayers. — Thomas Browne

Insomnia Quotes By Shelby Harris

When they [people with insomnia] start worrying about not sleeping, I'll say, "Say the mantra to myself; if I don't sleep tonight, I'll likely sleep tomorrow, and if not tomorrow then definitely the third" because our body has a way of naturally catching up. — Shelby Harris

Insomnia Quotes By Jim Gaffigan

When I sat late, I mean late. A three-year old with insomnia is very similar to a heroin addict going through withdrawal. — Jim Gaffigan

Insomnia Quotes By Avery Sawyer

I think insomnia is a sign that a person is interesting. — Avery Sawyer

Insomnia Quotes By Evelyn Waugh

I haven't been to sleep for over a year. That's why I go to bed early. One needs more rest if one doesn't sleep. — Evelyn Waugh
