Go to bed

Early to bed and early to rise
Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise
Ben FranklinMathew HenryJohn Clarke?

Science has determined that going to bed early and rising early makes you happy.  Or maybe it’s the genes that make you an early riser that make you happy.  Or maybe it’s the genes that make you go to bed early, and then going to bed early makes you happy.  It’s hard to tell these things.

IS it not better at an early hour
In its calm cell to rest the weary head,
While birds are singing and while blooms the bower,
Than sit the fire out and go starv’d to bed?

— Walter Savage Landor, born this day in 1775

God scatters beauty as he scatters flowers____
O’er the wide earth, and tells us all are ours._
A hundred lights in every temple burn,______
And at each shrine I bend my knee in turn.__

Walter Savage Landor
