Pillow Quotations

When I lay my head on the pillow at night I can say I was a decent person today. That's when I feel beautiful.
Drew Barrymore

Perhaps we don't need these religious concoctions to pillow the fear of death. Just the fact that there is an unknown, and something greater, can bring a feeling of peace. That's enough for me.
Brad Pitt

A ruffled mind makes a restless pillow.
Charlotte Bronte

Being nice to everybody, saying hello to everyone in the room, signing every autograph; it was instilled in me at a very young age that this was what I was suppose to do. But I don't think it helps at all. I see more people who are rude or arrogant being rewarded - but, this way, I can put my head on the pillow at night.
Brooke Shields

Fatigue is the best pillow.
Benjamin Franklin
