"Night is purer than day; it is better for thinking and loving and dreaming. At night everything is more intense, more true. The echo of words that have been spoken during the day takes on a new and deeper meaning. The tragedy of man is that he doesn’t know how to distinguish between day and night. He says things at night that should only be said by day."- Elie Wiesel
This is so me! I find nighttime so comforting. I love to just sit in the dark and think about stuff. :)
