4 is the worst time to wake up, as anyone with the normal human sensitivities will tell you. Far too late to make a cup of tea or go back to sleep. Far too early to get up and do something constructive. There’s nothing on television but arrogant evangelists and people selling acne solutions and motivational tapes. For me, base 12 philosophy aside, midnight is not the witching hour. 4:00 is. – Toni Jordan

As a child, I had to get up early for school or work. I’d get ready by myself. I’d set my alarm to wake me up very early in the morning, and be off to work, the family driver driving me every morning. I did it alone, my parents never coming in to wake me up. – Janet Jackson

As morning approaches, body temperature rises, then peaks during the day, dips for a time in early afternoon (when many people take siestas), and begins to drop again in the evening. Thinking is sharpest and memory most accurate when we are at our daily peak in circadian arousal. Try pulling an all – nighter or working an occasional night shift. You’ll feel groggiest in the middle of the night but may gain new energy when your normal wake – up time arrives. – David G. Myers

At times I think the truest image of God today is a black inner-city grandmother in the United States or a mother of the disappeared in Argentina or the women who wake up early to make tortillas in refugee camps. They all weep for their children, and in their compassionate tears arises the political action that changes the world. The mothers show us that it is the experience of touching the pain of others that is the key to change. – Jim Wallis

Ballet in September used to be dead as a dodo. Now, with City Ballet’s ingenious decision to give us four weeks of repertory in the early fall, having cut down on the relentlessly long spring season when dancers, critics and audiences droop on the vine, we wake up after the dog days of August with something to look at. – Robert Gottlieb

But Paul’s vision of God’s love, rising here like the sun on a clear summer’s morning, shines through all the detail that has gone before. You need to wake up early, to get out of bed, and to throw back the curtains, to see it; that’s what the previous four chapters are about. But now that we have done all that, the view is here for us to enjoy. And to be dazzled by. God’s love has done everything we could need, everything we shall need. – N. T. Wright

Call it arrogance or male chauvinism, the male ego just doesn’t allow a woman to participate in key issues in family. Men seldom realize that it’s the housewife who has the most difficult job in the world: waking up early, preparing breakfast, getting the children ready for school, preparing lunch, cleaning up the mess at home and so much more. Even before they can some rest, the doorbell would ring and the children are back from school. Then, the routine again, and by the end of the day, they were tired. Women in the family are the last to sleep and the first to wake up. Sometimes, even during a crisis in the family or when there is a dispute, it’s the lady of the house that stands rock solid to calm things down and face challenges head on. – Jagdish Joghee

Chess has given me a lot more than I could ask for. I have been able to feel special, travel the world and do what I truly enjoy. Moreover, chess players love being their own boss and hate having to wake up early! – Viswanathan Anand

Each night we watched the sun set no matter where we were, and we’d wake up early to witness it rising again. That was the thing about life: even when the days faded to black, you were always given another chance. A second moment to try again to rise from the ashes. – Brittainy C. Cherry

I am not an early bird. I go to bed normally between midnight and 1 o’clock, so it is understandable that I cannot be an early bird. I wake up around 9 o’clock. – Dieter Rams

I didn’t leave early that morning. I waited for him to wake up and kiss me good morning. He said he was going to take a shower and I should come join him. I thought now was as good of a time as any and placed the ring on his corner table with my note. It read:My Love, I don’t know how you will accept my decision. I do love you with all my heart but you are not my first love. I am always going to be infatuated with my love for the sea. Accept my proposal after I have completed my education, claim my heart for thy own & obtain thy love in which it possesses.With all My Love, Zara-emerald eyes of the sea – Hazel Cartwright

I don’t have time to wake up early. – UNKNOWN – Hal Elrod

I don’t need a mate, she muttered, staring up at the bright circle of the early autumn moon. But can’t you send me a nice, sexy, strongmale to dance with? Pretty please? She hadn’t had a lover for close to eight months now, and it was starting to hurt on every level. He doesn’t even have to be smart, just good between the sheets. Good enough to unsnap the tension in her body, allow her to function again. Because sex wasn’t simply about pleasure for a cat like her – it was about affection, about trust, about everything good. Though right this second, I’d take plain old hot sex.That was when Riley walked out of the shadows. Got an itch, kitty? Snapping to her feet, she narrowed her eyes, knowing he had to have deliberately stayed downwind in order to sneak up on her. Spying? When you’re talking loud enough to wake the dead? She swore she could feel steam coming out her ears. – Nalini Singh

I find that most of wake up day, not because we genuinely ‘want’ to, but because we have to. We have to be somewhere, do something, answer to or take care of someone.

I got up early because I wanted to. – Nobody – Jim Gaffigan

I know you’re still awake. Good for you. Shut up and go to sleep. Another snicker. What you have to ask yourself, he continued, is whether I’m the type who would stay awake long enough to kill you after you fall asleep, or if I’m an early riser who would kill you before you wake up. If you want your head to stay on your neck, you’d better be neither, I growled, though his words sent a cold spear of dread through my stomach. My hands tightened on my sword hilt, and Jackal laughed somewhere in the darkness, unseen. I’m just kidding, sis, he said. Or am I? Something to think about, before you fall asleep. Nighty-night, then. Sleep tight. – Julie Kagawa

I look at it this way: How much of the day are you awake? You think, I’ve gotta get that dry cleaning, I gotta get this going, and this, and this, and this. And all of a sudden it’s dinnertime. And then there’s a moment of connection with your spouse or your friends. Then you read and go to bed. Wake up and then it’s the same all over. You’re not awake, you’re not living, you’re not experiencing. We start early medicating ourselves. We start kids early, on TV and video games and so on. – Tim Allen

I love to work. I know that sounds ridiculous to say because all people love to work, but I love the homework that goes into acting. I love figuring out different ways of playing a scene. I love the energy of being on set. I love not getting enough sleep because I have to wake up early in the morning. – Amanda Schull

I never knew a man come to greatness or eminence who lay abed late in the morning. – Johnathan Swift

I never knew a man come to greatness or eminence who lay abed late in the morning. – Jonathan Swift

I no longer believe love works like a fairy tale but like farming. Most of it is just getting up early and tilling the soil and then praying for rain. But if we do the work, we just might wake up one day to find an endless field of crops rolling into the horizon. In my opinion, that’s even better than a miracle. I’d rather earn the money than win the lottery because there’s no joy in a reward unless it comes at the end of a story. – Donald Miller

I once told a guy I had to wake up early and he said, I could wake you up with my – Sir, I’ll stop you right there. That is the least sexy thing you could say to me. Nothing about you is sexy when you are the reason I am awake – you are basically an iPhone alarm with a pulse. And I don’t want to fuck my iPhone. At least not at seven a.m. But – Anna Kendrick

I sometimes have to think about that because if I think about these five things and think of them all, I’ll drop the balls, so I really have to prioritize and use every free second I have and maximize it. I wake up early, try to get sleep, but try to write for at least three hours every day. A really nice day for me is writing ten hours. I love that. Hasn’t been a lot of that recently, but every free second I have I’m doing that. – James Ponsoldt

I travel often, which can make maintaining a workout schedule a little difficult, but I try to make time for it whenever I can.

I tweet early in the morning when I wake up or late at night just to let you know that I have a show or what’s on my mind, and that’s it. I hate Snapchat and all of that. It’s making kids so stupid. – Tyler, The Creator

I wake up early enough every morning to have some alone time. I have an app called Simply Being that’s made for meditation. I do that for 5-10 minutes in the morning.

I wake up early. At 6:30 A.M., I’m at my most optimistic. – Emily Mortimer

I wake up fairly early every day, by 8, for sure. Sunday is a lighter writing day than the weekdays, but I still wake up and write for about an hour, beginning right around 8.

I’m discovering that the people that wake up early are really the trendsetters. They are up giving the commands on what the whole world needs to do so the worker wakes up at 8am but the dreamer, the innovator, the creator, the engineer is up at 3 or 4 in the morning making it happen. – Eric Thomas

I’m really quite happy to say that in my early 40s, I wake up feeling sexy, and I can’t say I felt that way in my late 20s. – Tori Amos

If I can manage to write up to about a thousand words early in the morning, no matter what else I’m doing that day, I feel at least I’ve got some work done. Often I find my ideas are clearer then. It’s as if I’ve got all the imagination going through all my dreams as if it’s still there in my head. I think that’s a good writing tip to pass on. Write when you wake up. – Jacqueline Wilson

If you come over to my house, I’ve had a lot of people be like ‘Hey … did you mean to put these in the dishwasher?’ And I’m like, no they’re actually supposed to be in the freezer because I use them to get rid of under-eye bags when I wake up early in the morning. – Shay Mitchell

In early July, Morgan Stanley received its first wake-up call. It came from Greg Lippmann and his bosses at Deutsche Bank, who, in a conference call, told Howie Hubler and his bosses that the $4 billion in credit default swaps Hubler had sold Deutsche Bank’s CDO desk six months earlier had moved in Deutsche Bank’s favor. Could Morgan Stanley please wire $1.2 billion to Deutsche Bank by the end of the day? Or, as Lippmann actually put it – according to someone who heard the exchange – Dude, you owe us one point two billion. – Michael Lewis

In my desperation to try to lull myself into a gentle sloom, I have created a list of things that will often assist my descent into delicious treacle-sleep. The list includes a series of things I can do if I go to bed and wake up early, and includes things like playing games and reading books, but one item that continually seems to work is telling myself:The faster I go to sleep, the faster I can have cookies for breakfast.This idea might seem rudimentary, but it staves off the sulks long enough that I can find a few hours of sleep, even on the hottest of days. If only Biscuit Power worked for other insomniacs, cookies might save humanity from itself. – Michelle Franklin

Isabelle had been trained to wake up early every morning, rain or shine, and a slight hangover did nothing to prevent it from happening again. She sat up slowly and blinked down at Simon. She’d never spent and entire night in a bed with anyone else, unless you counted crawling into her parents bed when she was four and afraid of thunderstorms. She couldn’t help staring at Simon as if he were some exotic species of animal. He lay on his back, his mouth slightly open, his hair in his eyes. Ordinary brown hair, ordinary brown eyes. His t-shirt was pulled up slightly. He wasn’t muscular like a shadowhunter. He had a smooth flat stomach but no six-pack, and there was still a hint of softness to his face. What was it about him that fascinated her? He was plenty cute, but she had dated gorgeous faerie knights, sexy shadowhunters … Isabelle, Simon said without opening his eyes. Quit staring at me. – Cassandra Clare

It didn’t take long to figure out I’ll never go back to teaching public high school. Why would I, when I can make virtually the same money waiting tables, have no stress, and work half the hours? When I can give away or trade my shifts if I need time to write or study. When I’ll never have to wake up early, take my work home, or talk to anyone’s parentsunless it’s in regards to the nightly specials, the Spanish grenache that pairs beautifully with our house-made mole sauce. – Nicole Hardy

It feels great to wake up feeling healthy, awake and alert. I love waking up in the morning, taking adeep breath, reading the newspaper and going to the gym – as opposed to carrying a hangover rightuntil lunch. That’s horrible. It is nice to let off steam once in a while, but I find myself less involved withpeople in that sense. I like staying at home, reading a book, having a chat with my wife, a quiet dinnerand going to bed early. I don’t want to drink half a bottle of whisky and look 50 the next day. I havebecome an anti-drinking, anti-smoking agent. – Saif Ali Khan

It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom. – Aristotle

It takes me a while to get my appetite going when I wake up early. – Chelsea Handler

It was-this always seems to shock people all over again- a happy childhood. For the first few months I spent a lot of time at the bottom of the garden, crying till I threw up and yelling rude words at the neighborhood kids who tried to make friends. But children are pragmatic, they come alive and kicking out of a whole lot worse than orphanhood, and I could only hold out so long against the fact that nothing would bring my parents back and against the thousand vivid things around me, Emma-next-door hanging over the wall and my new bike glinting red in the sunshine and the half-wild kittens in the garden shed, all fidgeting insistently while they waited for me to wake up again and come out to play. I found out early that you can throw yourself away, missing what you’ve lost. – Tana French

It’s pronounced wee but spelled O-U-I. It’s all you’ll want to say when you’re sitting at one of the thousands of little cafes that line the streets and you’re looking at a menu full of foods you just want to eat for days. And then you wake up early, and the sun is rising in shades of pink over the white buildings as you make your way through the sleepy streets until you’re upon the fresh markets! – Giada De Laurentiis

It’s the best part of the day. – George Allen

Lieutenant Jaxon Knight replied, No sir. D-L1 is the only jumpgate with a pending arrival and it is due in an hour, and it is just some civilian traffic. I’m not detecting them on the hyperNEP relays, and I really doubt they are an hour early. Captain Devereaux stood up. Has there been any pirate activity or anything else of note in this sector? Can you get a fix on the fluctuations? How far are they? Lieutenant Commander Ember Skyrift replied, It’s been quiet, sir, no pirate activity. I can’t get a good lock on the flux. The wake is big, at least one large warship. And, sir, it’s heading rim-trailward. – Charles Nall

Life is too short, she panicked, I want more. He nodded slowly, Wake up earlier. – Dr. SunWolf

Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have. – Lemony Snicket

My intention, of course, had been to wake up early and call Father Dominic to warn him about Heather. But intentions are only as good as the people who hold them, and I guess I must be worthless because I didn’t wake up until my mother shook me awake, and by then it was 7:30, and my ride was leaving without me. – Meg Cabot

My life is nothing but pressure. All pressure. This pressure is like a heaviness. It’s always on top of me, this heaviness. It’s always there since I’m a kid. Other people wake up in the morning, ‘A new day! Ah, up and at ’em!’ I wake up, the heaviness is waiting for me nice. Sometimes I even talk to it. I say [adopts cheerful voice] ‘Hi, heaviness!’ and the heaviness looks back at me, [in an ominous growl] ‘Today you’re gonna get it good. You’ll be drinking early today.’ – Rodney Dangerfield

My life is routine. I wake up early in the morning. I brush my teeth. I sit on the floor of the cell I do not go to breakfast. I stare at a gray cement wall. I keep my legs crossed my back straight my eyes forward. I take deep breaths in and out, in and out, and I try not to move. I sit for as long as I can I sit until everything hurts I sit until everything stops hurting I sit until I lose myself in the gray wall I sit until my mind becomes as blank as the gray wall. I sit and I stare and I breathe. I sit and I stare. I breathe. – James Frey

MY MOST CONSTANT and vivid memory is not so much of the people but of the actual house in Aracataca where I lived with my grandparents. It’s a recurring dream which persists even now. What’s more, every single day of my life I wake up with the feeling, real or imaginary, that I’ve dreamed I’m in that huge old house. Not that I’ve gone back there but that I am there, at no particular age, for no particular reason – as if I’d never left it. Even now in my dreams that sense of night-time foreboding which dominated my whole childhood still persists. It was an uncontrollable sensation which began early every evening and gnawed away at me in my sleep until I saw dawn breaking through the cracks in the door. – Gerald Martin

Oloch who entered my soul early. Moloch in whom I am a consciousness without a body. Moloch who frightened me out of my natural ecstasy. Moloch whom I abandon. Wake up in Moloch.. Light streaming out of the sky.Moloch! Moloch! Robot apartments! Invisible suburbs! Skeleton treasuries! Blind capitals! Demonic industries! Spectral nations! Invincible madhouses! Granite cocks! Monstrous bombs!They broke their backs lifting Moloch to Heaven.. Pavements, trees, radios, tons. Lifting the city to Heaven which exists and is everywhere about us. – Allen Ginsberg

One key to success is to have lunch at the time of day most people have breakfast. – Robert Brault

One key to success is to have lunch at the time of day most people have breakfast. – Robert Breault

One of the things that I love about being a writer is this. I wake up every day and I write for three hours. I wake up early. So like 6:00, 7:00 in the morning, I write till 9:00 or 10:00. I live in New York, nobody even is breathing until 9:00 or 10:00 in the morning. So, it’s like my writing life is completely removed from the rest of my life. – Walter Mosley

Our young don’t play outside anymore; they’ve lost their innocence too early in their lives. We walk around the house ignoring one another, we see each other as separate, we abuse the earth; we kill each other in the name of God, we worship the Dollar bill, we fear life to the point of harming unborn and sacred lives, we insult each other because of the color of our skin; we’ve created many Gods to fit our wants. We are condemning our lives to an existence of attachment and discontent, we are asleep, and we must wake up! – Martin Suarez

Presenting Saturday mornings has been a dream for a long time. And one day in September I am going to wake up very early and it will be a reality. I can’t wait. – Fearne Cotton

Sometimes, I think, that in the mornings when you first wake up, every thing that happened in the previous day rushes through our mind so fast, we, A: Don’t realize it. B: Become more tired, die a little inside, and become groggy. Since everyday, we die a little inside we age closer and closer to death. We constantly grow older, and we’re constantly dying. Therefore, don’t wake me up early, or I’ll take it that you wanted to kill me. – Melanie Kay Taylor

Spending time by myself is VERY important to me and I wake up pretty early, I wake up around 5 in the morning, and I get to have a couple hours to myself, and that is definitely I think really important to me and I think it’s important for moms to have that too. And I love to carve out time for myself and sometimes I’ll hang out with girlfriends, but i like to keep things pretty intimate. – Nicole Richie

The early morning has gold in its mouth. – Benjamin Franklin

The Ebola epidemic can serve as an early warning wake-up call to get ready. If we start now, we can be ready for the next epidemic. – Bill Gates

The shadows in the early morning don’t tell much. The shadows rest at that time. So it’s useless to gaze very early in the day. Around six in the morning the shadows wake up, and they are best around five in the afternoon. Then they are fully awake. – Carlos Castaneda

The sun has not caught me in bed in fifty years. – Thomas Jefferson

The time just before dawn contains the most energy of all hours of the day. This has helped me become an early riser and an early doer…. When I wake to see that it’s light out already, I feel the world has started without me. – Terri Guillemets

The worst of sleeping out of doors is that you wake up so dreadfully early. And when you wake up you have to get up because the ground is so hard you are uncomfortable.

There is a big difference between just learning something, and actually LIVING what you learn. – Hal Elrod

There is a tendency to treat our relationship with Jesus like the diet we keep meaning to start. I’m going to start eating right, as soon as I finish off this chicken chimichanga. Tomorrow for sure. We treat our relationship with Jesus like the workout program we keep meaning to start. We go to bed telling ourselves, Tomorrow I’m going to wake up early and exercise. But the following night we find ourselves getting into bed promising, Tomorrow for sure. – Kyle Idleman

There’s one thing that’s really great about waking up early, and it’s not jogging or greeting the day – it’s just that that’s when they make doughnuts. – Kathy Griffin

Throughout my 20s I spent a lot of time just playing and not really working, but fortunately for me I continued to get just enough work, and have a reason to wake up in the morning. I really empathize with some of my peers who had success in the early years then it dries up, and so there’s no reason to get up in the morning. – Jason Bateman

To wake up on a gloriously bright morning, in a tent pitched beneath spruce trees, and to look out lazily and sleepily for a moment from the open side of the tent, across the dead camp-fire of the night before, to the river, where the light of morning rests and perhaps some early-rising[240] native is gliding in his birch canoe; to go to the river and freshen one’s self with the cold water, and yell exultingly to the gulls and hell-divers, in the very joy of living; or to wake at night, when you have rolled in your blankets in the frost-stricken dying grass without a tent, and to look up through the leaves above to the dark sky and the flashing stars, and hear far off the call of a night bird or the howl of a wolf: this is the poetry, the joy of a wild and roving existence, which cannot come too often – Josiah Edward Spurr

Town of the Dragon VeinIf you wake up too early listen for it.A sort of inverted whistling the sound of sound.Being withdrawn after all where?Does all the sound in the world.Come from day after day?From mountains but.They have to give it back.At night just.As your nightly dreams.Are taps.Open reversely.In.To.Time. – Anne Carson

Wake late, win late. – Amit Kalantri
