Morning people may be respected, but night people are feared.
[Elaine Richards]

One morning, Dougal woke up very slowly. First he opened one eye – then he opened the other; then he closed the first eye and tried using just one; then he closed the second eye and started all over again by opening both very wide and very suddenly.
It was a terrible shock, so he closed them and went back to sleep.
[From Dougal's Scottish Holiday by Eric Thompson]

Mr. Axelroot himself is boring to watch; on a typical day he sleeps till noon, then takes a nap. You can just tell he isn't saved.
[From The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, 1998]
