“Do you wake up as I do, having forgotten what it is that hurts or where, until you move? There is a second of consciousness that is clean again. A second that is you, without memory or experience, the animal warm and waking into a brand new world. There is the sun dissolving the dark, and light as clear as music, filling the room where you sleep and the other rooms behind your eyes.”
Jeanette Winterson

Christopher Isherwood
“Waking up begins with saying am and now. That which has awoken then lies for a while staring up at the ceiling and down into itself until it has recognized I, and therefrom deduced I am, I am now. Here comes next, and is at least negatively reassuring; because here, this morning, is where it has expected to find itself: what’s called at home.”
Christopher Isherwood, A Single Man

Ian McEwan
“If life was a dream, then dying must be the moment when you woke up. It was so simple it must be true. You died, the dream was over, you woke up. That's what people meant when they talked about going to heaven. It was like waking up.”
Ian McEwan, The Daydreamer

Jonathan Stroud
“I wanted to wake you straightaway, but I knew I had to wait several hours to ensure you were safely recovered."

Tove Jansson
“The hemulen woke up slowly and recognised himself and wished he had been someone he didn't know.”
Tove Jansson, Moominvalley in November

John Steinbeck
“Men all do about the same thing when they wake up.”
John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

Adi Alsaid
“Waking up to a smell is a lot more satisfying than waking up to a noise. Instead of barging in uninvited and yanking you out into reality, smells enter your dreams with a silent knock and a polite "Excuse me?”
Adi Alsaid

Захари Карабашлиев
“Обичам да я гледам, когато се събужда. Започваш да разбираш, че си истински влюбен, когато искаш да се събуждаш до някого по-силно, отколкото да заспивате заедно.”
Захари Карабашлиев, 18% Сиво

Shannon Celebi
“It’s not like I planned it. I never woke up from some rosy dream and said, “Okay, world, today I’m gonna spaz.”
Shannon Celebi, After Spring Comes

Jay Woodman
“There isn’t a good side and a bad side of you or of anybody, so there’s no need to be at war with yourself or anyone or anything at all.
All we are is a bunch of dozy people in the process of waking up.
All we really need to do is try gently to be open to continuing that process.
It’s no good getting worked up about stuff – it’s better to relax and laugh at our mistakes, then figure out how to learn from them and move on.”
Jay Woodman

Alice Hoffman
“Before she realized he was next to her, he had placed his hands over hers on the countertop, then hooped his fingers through hers. Gretel looked up at him, so startled she might as well have been shot.
'I just wanted to wake you up', he said.
Which is exactly what he did. One look at him and her heart was racing. One look, and whatever had been before was all over.”
Alice Hoffman, Local Girls

Stendhal
“Un des moments les plus pénibles de sa vie était celui où, chaque matin, en s'éveillant, il s'apprenait son malheur.”
Stendhal, The Red and the Black

Charlotte Eriksson
“I will miss
my chest exploding
you coming home late
not turning on the light
always waking me up

I will miss
the sudden burst of safety
when you look at me
or hold my hand
or say something like
”let’s go home”

I will miss
the years I lost
on something or someone.
The pieces didn’t fit, shaped wrong
the timing slightly off.

I loved you like I always will.”
Charlotte Eriksson

“The dream was floating off satisfactorily on an inner sea.”
Christopher Harman

“We awaken by asking the right questions. We awaken when we see knowledge being spread that goes against our own personal experiences. We awaken when we see popular opinion being wrong but accepted as being right, and what is right being pushed as being wrong. We awaken by seeking answers in corners that are not popular. And we awaken by turning on the light inside when everything outside feels dark.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“Oh, got no reason, got not shame
Got no family I can blame
Just don't let me disappear
I'mma tell you everything”
Ryan Tedder

Belsebuub
“It’s perfectly normal, perfectly natural to live in sleep. But to wake up is a revolution in consciousness. To wake up is to break free of nature. To wake up is to rise and unite with the spirit, and nature doesn’t do that for us.”
Belsebuub

Ben Aaronovitch
“I woke in the hour before dawn, stuck in that strange state where the memory of your dreams is still powerful enough to motivate your actions.”
Ben Aaronovitch, Foxglove Summer

Israelmore Ayivor
“In between waking up from bed in the morning and going back in the evening, let something happen. God will bless that “something” for you.”
Israelmore Ayivor, Become a Better You

“What matters is the act of surrender.

The awakening process all boils down to this: surrender.

How, you may ask?

Like this: Lay yourself down on the floor and let go of everything.

Let go of the need to understand, the need to know how exactly to do it and what to say, how to be and so on.

Just "give up" (the struggle).

Literally just lay there and say "Take me, I'm yours. Do with me what you wish, I won't resist or avoid anything anymore. I'm sincerely yours".

Let go. Surrender. Just let go.

You don't have to figure anything out, you don't have to seek anymore, you don't have to look for any answers or solutions anymore.

Just let go. Let everything go.

I'm telling you; this is the ultimate solution and answer that the awakening process leads to anyway, so you might as well save yourself years of suffering by surrendering to Truth right now and let it take over your life.

It all falls into place in the moment of surrender, that's when freedom and peace comes and takes over your whole being.”
Maria Erving

Stan Jacobs
“How you greet your morning is like a boomerang. It always comes back to you. Remember this.”
Stan Jacobs, The Dusk And Dawn Master: A Practical Guide to Transforming Evening and Morning Habits, Achieving Better Sleep, and Mastering Your Life

Gayle Forman
“I wasn't in danger today," I tell him in a choked voice. "I escaped danger today." And I did... I feel like the whole day has been an electrical shock, paddles straight to my heart, bringing me out of a lifelong torpor I hadn't even known I was in. "I escaped," I repeat.”
Gayle Forman, Just One Day

Joyce Rachelle
“The only time I get headaches is when my alarm clock makes me wake up before noon. Now that's my version of morning sickness.”
Joyce Rachelle

Christophe Galfard
“Waking up in the same place in which you dozed off has never happened either to you or to anyone else. Ever. Earth does not stop moving when you sleep. Every hour that passes, Earth travels a little more than 800,000 kilometres around the centre of our galaxy. And so do you. That's the equivalent of about twenty trips around the planet. Every hour. No one minds, though, as long as their bed stays still beneath their body.”
Christophe Galfard, The Universe in Your Hand: A Journey Through Space, Time, and Beyond

“She let out a strangled laugh. “Yeah, that’s how it works. I just woke up one morning and was like, ‘gee, I want to screw Kyler.’ Seriously, you have no clue.”
Jennifer Armentrout, Frigid
