You know what’s a great way to get to a girl’s heart? Say good night. Seriously, that’s it. The smallest things can make you stand out as a special person in her life, because it shows that you’re someone who cares enough to think of her throughout the day and, critically, as you’re winding down and getting to sleep. But you can do better than “good night,” right? Yeah, We know you can. Here’s 35 quotes to get you started.
11 Legend says, when you can’t sleep at night, it’s because you’re awake in someone else’s dream.
A little something to consider on her sleepless nights, which also suggests you’re dreaming about her. Hey, it’s better than admitting she needs to cut back on coffee.

1212 Dream sweetly, sleep peacefully, wake happily.
Look, I don’t usually wake up happily (I usually wake up grouchy and hungry with eye crust, I’m only human!), but maybe she’s a sunny morning type person. If so, this quote lines up with her personality pretty well. Being a morning person sounds nice, and you might as well encourage it.
12. Dream sweetly, sleep peacefully, wake happily.
1313 A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.
If she’s had a long, bad, trying day, maybe she could use a little wisdom from the Emerald Isle. We all just want to sleep after a bad day, anyway, and apparently it’s an Irish-approved cure-all. Bonus: make her laugh, too, so she goes to sleep smiling AND knowing you go the extra mile to be good to her.
13. A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for an...

2828 I didn’t want to kiss you goodbye — that was the trouble — I wanted to kiss you good night — and there’s a lot of difference.

3434 There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.
Homer wrote (uh, spoke, really) some of the foundational texts of western literature, so he probably knew a thing or two and dispensed more than a few words of wisdom. Sometimes it’s hard to wind down after a long, hard day, but sleeping on it is the best thing to do when you’re full of thoughts and worries, when talking endlessly can’t do you any good.
34. There is a time for many words, and there is also a time fo...
3535 Sleep is the best meditation.
