The machinery is always going.

work small

 

If you sleep. If the gears keep you awake, eventually they turn slower and creakier and heavier and more labourious. So the noise and the effort adds to the lists of things that go bump in the night and that keeps you from real rest. … but I would rather go mad from sleep deprivation than stop the works and walk around empty.

The later the hour – the lovelier the lunatic.

Everybody might be crazy lately, but can anybody survive it? When you have a vision that won’t let you sleep, you might as well make an effort to make a success of it. Let the sun set on the sane, the later the hour – the lovelier the lunatic.

“The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you. Don’t go back to sleep. You must ask for what you really want. Don’t go back to sleep.” – Rumi
