“…and [I] still remember it that of all the nights that ever I slept in my life I never did pass a night with more epicurism of sleep; there being now and then a noise of people stirring that waked me, and then it was a very rainy night, and then I was a little weary, that what between waking and sleeping again, one after another, I never had so much content in all my life, and so my wife says it was with her.”
–Samuel Pepys, Diary, September 23, 1661
I love this quotation. It exactly captures that delicious half-asleep, half-awake state. And I love to sleep during a rainstorm.
Have you ever passed a night like this?
