Wisdom

A man in the dusk looks for a light, his sight being quenched:

living, he looks on the dead while sleeping;

awake, he looks on the sleeping.

Death is what we see asleep, sleep is what we see awake.

~ Heraclitus

Wit

He dreamed he was eating shredded wheat and woke up to find the mattress half gone.
