There is a saying in Tibetan that “at the door of the miserable rich man sleeps the contented beggar”.

A woman gets saturated with the views of the man she sleeps with.

Some fiery fop, with new commission vain,Who sleeps on brambles till he kills his man;Some frolic drunkard, reeling from a feast,Provokes a broil, and stabs you for a jest.samuel johnson
We must recognise the essential underlaying savagery in the animal called man, and return to older and sounder principles of national life and defense. We must realise that man's nature will remain the same so long as he remains man; that civilisation is but a slight coverlet beneath which the dominant beast sleeps lightly and ever ready to awake.h. p. lovecraft
The howling pariah dogs, the cocks that herald dawn all night, the drumming, the moaning that will be found later white plumage huddled on telegraph wires in back gardens or fowl roosting in apple trees, the eternal sorrow that never sleeps of great Mexico.malcolm lowry
I think that if the beast who sleeps in man could be held down by threats of any kind, whether of jail or retribution, then the highest emblem of humanity would be the lion tamer, not the prophet who sacrificed himself....

A hidden spark of the dream sleeps in the forest and waits in the celestial spheres of the brain.
The harvest of a quiet eye, That broods and sleeps on his own heart.william wordsworth
Dreams are but interludes, which fancy makes; When monarch reason sleeps, this mimic wakes.john dryden
When fame 's loud trump hath blown its noblest blast, Though long the sound, the echo sleeps at last; And glory , like the phoenix midst her fires , Exhales her odours, blazes, and expires.
Fires that shook me once, but now to silent ashes fall'n away. Cold upon the dead volcano sleeps the gleam of dying day.
A lonely fir-tree is standing On a northern barren height; It sleeps, and the ice and snow-drift Cast round it a garment of white.Heinrich Heine
Some sensations are sleeps that take up all the extent of the mind like a fog, don't let us think, don't let us act, don't let us be clearly.fernando pessoa
Sweet and low, sweet and low, Wind of the western sea, Low, low, breathe and blow, Wind of the western sea! Over the rolling waters go, Come from the dying moon, and blow, Blow him again to me; While my little one, while my pretty one, sleeps.
He didn't come out of my belly, but my God , I've made his bones, because I've attended to every meal, and how he sleeps, and the fact that he swims like a fish because I took him to the ocean. I'm so proud of all those things. But he is my biggest pride .
But the beaches are always open 'cause the ocean, she never sleeps.
So turn around and come on down, the beach is free.
