Awake Quotations

I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I'm awake, you know?
Ernest Hemingway

As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep, and never to refrain from smoking when awake.
Mark Twain

A good husband is never the first to go to sleep at night or the last to awake in the morning.
Honore de Balzac

Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.
Charles Stanley

I never drink coffee at lunch. I find it keeps me awake for the afternoon.
Ronald Reagan
