Famous quotes containing the word sleeping:

    Bunched upside down, they sleep in air.
    Their sharp ears, their sharp teeth, their quick sharp faces
    Are dull and slow and mild.
    All the bright day, as the mother sleeps,
    She folds her wings about her sleeping child.
    Randall Jarrell (1914–1965)

    A sleeping man holds in a circle around him the thread of the hours, the order of years and of worlds. He consults them instinctively upon awaking and in one second reads in them the point of the earth that he occupies, the time past until his arousal; but their ranks can be mingled or broken.
    Marcel Proust (1871–1922)

    The sleeping and the dead
    Are but as pictures; ‘tis the eye of childhood
    That fears a painted devil.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
