Sleepless nights

“Marianne would have thought herself very inexcusable had she been able to sleep at all the first night after parting from Willoughby.  She would have been ashamed to look her family in the face the next morning had she not risen from her bed in more need of repose than when she lay down in it”

Sense & Sensibility, volume 1, chapter 16
Marianne was of course in no danger of sleeping at all that night, poor girl.
