Bedtime Quotes

Bedtime is a time for resting. A good night is critical to function well the next day.  To have a good quality night sleep, it is necessary to disconnect from electronic devices. It also helps to have a light snack if you are hungry and to get your things to organize for the next day, such as clothing, keys, and your lunch. This will save you time and allow you to start the day with a clear mind. Reading helps until you fall asleep. Avoid using LED lights from electronic readers.

Browse through a collection of bedtime quotes from sleep experts, famous writers, celebrities and others sharing their thoughts on bedtime and ways of sleeping and having a great night.

Young writers should read books way past bedtime and write things down in notebooks when they are supposed to be doing something else.

Meaning is a young write should continue to read, learn, and strive to be the best. Keep notes in notebooks, make the effort to get ahead. As reading leads to success as this quote from Mr. Handler indicates.

< !DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/loose.dtd">

I’m always amazed at friends who say they try to read at night in bed but always end up falling asleep. I have the opposite problem. If a book is good I can’t go to sleep, and stay up way past my bedtime, hooked on the writing. Is anything better than waking up after a late-night read and diving right back into the plot before you even get out of bed to brush your teeth?

Whatever our bedtime was as kids, we could stay up an extra half hour if we were reading. My parents didn’t care as long as I was under the spell of a Stephen King or a Douglas Adams. Now I read in bed. I read at work. I read standing in line. It’s like, ‘Hello, my name is Nathan and I am a reader.
