26.”Every person needs to take one day away.  A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.  Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.  Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.  Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” – Maya Angelou

27.”Work is a blessing. God has so arranged the world that work is necessary, and He gives us hands and strength to do it. The enjoyment of leisure would be nothing if we had only leisure.

28.”Wild dreams torment me as I lie. And though a god lives in my heart, though all my power awakens at his word, though he can move my every inmost part – yet nothing in the outer world is stirred. Thus by existence tortured and oppressed I crave for death, I long for rest.” – Johann Wolfgang

29.”Of all the things a man may do, sleep probably contributes most to keeping him sane. It puts brackets about each day.

You’ve crossed through nothingness or a dream to another island in Time.” – Roger Zelazny
