I’ve been an insomniac lately… this reminded me of Robert Benigni in “Life is Beautiful,” “La Vita E Bella,” where he tries Schopenhauer to go to sleep (because everything is possible when you want it to be and you can be what you want to be), and he also uses it on the woman he likes when he wants her to look at him. I love how he moves his little hands 🙂
Ferruccio says, “I wanted to sleep so I told myself, ‘sleep, sleep’…”
Then, Guido wakes him because he is literally saying it in his ear and moving his little hands… The secret is to not move your hands and not say anything out loud, Ferruccio says.
So– dormo, dormo… sleeeeeeep.

A man’s face as a rule says more, and more interesting things, than his mouth, for it is a compendium of everything his mouth will ever say, in that it is the monogram of all this man’s thoughts and aspirations. Arthur SchopenhauerEvery parting gives a foretaste of death, every reunion a hint of the resurrection. Arthur Schopenhauer“To live alone is the fate of all great souls.” Schopenhauer
