If you cannot sleep then get up and do something instead of lying there and worrying.It is the worry that gets you,not the loss of sleep. It is better to sleep on things beforehand than lie awake about them afterward. Laugh the world laughs with you,snore and you sleep alone. There is nothing frightening about an eternal dreamless sleep.Surely it is better than eternal torment in hell and eternal boredom in heaven. You cannot wake a person who is pretending to be asleep. All men whilst they are awake are in one common world but each of them when is asleep is in a world of his own.
