The repose of sleep refreshes only the body. It rarely sets the soul at rest. The repose of the night does not belong to us. It is not the possession of our being. Sleep opens within us an inn for phantoms. In the morning we must sweep out the shadows.

French
Le repos du sommeil ne délasse que le corps. Il ne met pas toujours, il met rarement l’âme au repos, le repos de la nuit ne nous appartient pas. Il n’est pas le bien de notre être. Le sommeil ouvre en nous une auberge à fantômes. Il nous faut le matin balayer les ombres.
