Nap Quotations

I usually take a two-hour nap from one to four.
Yogi Berra

No day is so bad it can't be fixed with a nap.
Carrie Snow

I like a lot of things about yoga - its an intro to good music; with each good teacher you study with, you learn a lot about them personally; it's not just about specific technique or poses. I also like Shavasana - not too many exercise routines let you nap at the end of them. You don't see nap pods in CrossFit gyms.
Charles Michael Davis

When the going gets tough, the tough take a nap.
Tom Hodgkinson

There is more refreshment and stimulation in a nap, even of the briefest, than in all the alcohol ever distilled.
