The Distress of Sleeplessness Is with the Glutton

Does not a little suffice for a well-bred man? When he lies down, it is without discomfort. Distress and anguish and loss of sleep, and restless tossing for the glutton! Moderate eating ensures sound slumber and a clear mind next day on rising.

(Sirach 31:19-20 NAB)
