Sleep and Food Quotes

Eating and sleeping are a waste of time.”
Gerald Rudolph Ford (1913-?)


“Macduff:  ‘What three things does drink especially provoke?’
Porter:  ‘Marry, sir, nose-painting, sleep, and urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes, and unprovokes; it provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance.’
William Shakespeare (1564-1616) 'Macbeth'


“I have fed purely upon ale; I have eat my ale, drank my ale, and I always sleep upon ale.”
George Farquhar (1678-1707)


Oysters are very unsatisfactory food for the labouring men, but will do for the sedentary, and for a supper to sleep on.”
Albert J. Bellows, ‘The Philosophy of Eating’ (1867)


“Great eaters and great sleepers are incapable of anything else that is great.”
Henry IV of France (1553-1610)


“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.”
Virginia Woolf, English novelist (1882-1941) 
‘A Room of One's Own’


“Three things give us hardy strength: sleeping on hairy mattresses, breathing cold air, and eating dry food.”
Welsh proverb


“Often has the affectionate wife caused her husband a sleepless night and severe distress, which, had an enemy inflicted, she would scarcely have forgiven -- because she has prepared for him food which did not agree with his constitution or habits.”
Sarah Josepha Hale
'The Good Housekeeper' (1839)


    “He that eateth well drinketh well,
    he that drinketh well sleepeth well,
    he that sleepeth well sinneth not,
    he that sinneth not goeth straight through Purgatory to Paradise.”

    William Lithgow (1582-1645)
    Scottish traveler and author
