16 Quotes on the Benefit of Sleep
Published 01-24-2022


The average person spends about a third of their life sleeping. That’s a lot of time, but it’s time well spent. Sleep is vital for a healthy life. While we are asleep, our bodies have a chance to restore themselves, giving our immune, nervous, skeletal, and muscular systems a well-earned break and time to renew. At the same time, our senses diminish and our minds enter a state of altered consciousness: We dream. Our sleeping minds process our waking experiences, improving mood, memory, and cognitive function.

Considering the importance of rest and the endlessly fascinating nature of dreams, sleep has long been a subject of extensive research, from ancient philosophers to modern psychologists. Today, the general consensus is that adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep per day — but that’s certainly not a hard and fast rule. Many successful people have claimed to get by just fine on four to five hours a night; Thomas Edison was famously opposed to sleeping, considering it “a heritage from our cave days” and preferring to sleep for just three or four hours a day.

Edison, however, is certainly in a minority when it comes to his opinion of sleep. For most of us, sleep is a wonderful break, and we’d be happy to sleep for longer — especially when the dreaded alarm sounds in the morning. And we’re not alone. Many famous figures, from Homer to Homer Simpson, have extolled the virtues of sleep, as the following quotes reveal.
