George William Curtis
American journalist 1824-1892

As an eagle, weary after soaring in the sky, folds its wings and flies down to rest in its nest, so does the shining Self enter the state of dreamless sleep, where one is freed from all desires.
American businessman, investor, blogger, and author 1966-
