Trusting Faith“I am told that there are men

Who work well and sleep badly,

Who do not sleep. What a lack of faith in me!

It would almost be better if they did not work but slept, because laziness is not a more serious sin than anxiety …

I am not speaking, God says, of those men who do not work and do not sleep.

These are sinners, of course …

I am speaking of those who work and do not sleep.

I feel sorry for them. They have no confidence in me …

They govern their affairs very well during the day.

But do not want to entrust to me their governance during the night …

He who does not sleep is unfaithful to Hope …”

— Charles Péguy
