Quotes containing the word sleepless


1. After all, what is happiness? Love, they tell me. But love doesn't bring and never has brought happiness. On the contrary, it's a constant state of anxiety, a battlefield; it's sleepless nights, asking ourselves all the time if we're doing the right thing. Real love is composed of ecstasy and agony.
- Paulo Coelho, The Witch Of Portobello

2. A broken heart in real life isn't half as dreadful as it is in books. It's a good deal like a bad tooth, though you won't think THAT a very romantic simile.

- L.M. Montgomery

Evidence of all the adventures and sleepless nights and practical jokes and heartbreaks that had made them who they are.
- Katherine Center, Everyone Is Beautiful
