The Beauty of Sleep (Quote)

“Do but consider what an excellent thing sleep is; it is so inestimable a jewel that, if a tyrant would give his crown for an hour’s slumber, it cannot be bought; of so beautiful a shape is it, that though a man lie with an Empress, his heart cannot beat quiet till he leaves her embracements to be at rest with the other: yea, so greatly indebted are we to this kinsman of death, that we owe the better tributary, half of our life to him: and there is good cause why we should do so: for sleep is that golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.”

— Thomas Dekker (The Gull’s Hornbook, 1609)
