Laugh and the world laughs with you, snore and you sleep alone.
Old women snore violently. They are like bodies into which bizarre animals have crept at night; the animals are vicious, bawdy, noisy. How they snore! There is no shame to their snoring. Old women turn into old men.
—Joyce Carol Oates
A marriage is always made up of two people who are prepared to swear that only the other one snores.
