“All I know is that while I’m asleep, I’m never afraid, and I have no hopes, no struggles, no glories and bless the man who invented sleep, a cloak over all human thought, food that drives away hunger, water that banishes thirst, fire that heats up cold, chill that moderates passion, and, finally, universal currency with which all things can be bought, weight and balance that brings the shepherd and the king, the fool and the wise, to the same level. There’s only one bad thing about sleep, as far as I’ve ever heard, and that is that it resembles death, since there’s very little difference between a sleeping man and a corpse”― Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quijote de La Mancha

A man, maybe a poet or a knight,  collecting the scattered fragments of his soul. Thoughts and bodies flutter with equal lightness.
