Oh sleep! It is a gentle thing,
Beloved from pole to pole
-Samuel Taylor Coleridge

I reached for sleep and drew it round me like a blanket muffling pain and thought together in the merciful dark.
-Mary Stewart

[Sleep is] the golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.
-Thomas Dekker

There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.

Now I see the secret of the making of the best persons. It is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.
-Walt Whitman

...our little life
Is rounded with a sleep
-William Shakespeare

Life is something to do when you can't get to sleep.
-Fran Lebowitz
