“Rest and be thankful.”
William Wordsworth

“Silence

It has a sound, a fullness.
It’s heavy with sigh of tree,
and space between breaths.
It’s ripe with pause between birdsong
and crash of surf.
It’s golden they say.
But no one tells us it’s addictive.”
Angela Long

“I make no secret of the fact that I would rather lie on a sofa than sweep beneath it.”
Shirley Conran

“There are hours for rest, and hours for wakefulness; nights for sobriety and nights for drunkenness—(if only so that possession of the former allows us to discern the latter when we have it; for sad as it is, no human body can be happily drunk all the time).”
Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy

“God never asked us to meet life’s pressures and demands on our own terms or by relying upon our own strength. Nor did He demands that we win His favor by assembling an impressive portfolio of good deeds. Instead, He invites us to enter His rest.”
Charles R. Swindoll

“If I’d waited until I was well rested to read, I never would have read anything.”
Will Schwalbe, The End of Your Life Book Club

“Everything needs a break.”
Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity
