    Now, blessings light on him that first invented this same sleep!
    it covers a man all over, thoughts and all, like a cloak; it is
    meat for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, heat for the cold,
    and cold for the hot. It is the current coin that purchases all
    the pleasures of the world cheap; and the balance that sets the
    king and the shepherd, the fool and the wise man, even. There is
    only one thing, which somebody once put into my head, that I
    dislike in sleep; it is, that it resembles death; there is very
    little difference between a man in his first sleep, and a man in
    his last sleep.

How he sleepeth! having drunken
Weary childhood's mandragore,
From his pretty eyes have sunken
Pleasures to make room for more--
Sleeping near the withered nosegay which he pulled the day
before.
