BED
[ Also see Furniture Night Repose Rest Sleep ]

Matthew, Mark, Luke and John,
  The bed be blest that I lye on.
      - Thomas Ady, A Cradle in the Dark (p. 58)

In bed we laugh, in bed we cry;
  And born in bed, in bed we die;
    The near approach a bed may show
      Of human bliss to human woe.
        [Fr., Theatre des ris et des pleurs
          Lit! ou je nais, et ou je meurs,
            Tu nous fais voir comment voisins
              Sont nos plaisirs et chagrins.]
      - Isaac de Benserade,
        (Dr. Johnson's translation)

To rise with the lark, and go to bed with the lamb.
      - Nicholas Breton, Court and County (p. 183),
        (1618 edition)

Like feather-bed betwixt a wall
  And heavy brunt of cannon ball.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. I, canto II, l. 871)

Bed is a bundle of paradoxes; we go to it with reluctance, yet we quit it with regret; and we make up our minds every night to leave it early, but we make up our bodies every morning to keep it late.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

O bed! O bed! delicious bed!
  That heaven upon earth to the weary head.
      - Thomas Hood, Miss Kilmansegg--Her Dream

It is a delicious moment, certainly, that of being well nestled in bed, and feeling that you shall drop gently to sleep. The good is to come, not past; the limbs have just been tired enough to render the remaining in one posture delightful; the labor of the day is gone.
      - Leigh Hunt (James Henry Leigh Hunt)

Rise with the lark, and with the lark to bed.
      - Rev. James Hurdis, The Village Curate
         (l. 276)

The bed has become a place of luxury to me! I would not exchange it for all the thrones in the world.
      - Napoleon Bonaparte (Napoleon I)

There should be hours for necessities, not for delights; times to repair our nature with comforting repose, and not for us to waste these times.
      - William Shakespeare

Sweet pillows, sweetest bed;
  A chamber deaf to noise, and blind td light;
    A rosy garland, and a weary head.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

Oh! thou gentle scene
  Of sweet repose; where by th' oblivious draught
    Of each sad toilsome day to peace restor'd.
      Unhappy mortals lose their woes awhile.
      - James Thomson (1)
