“There is a dead spot in the night,
that coldest, blackest time
when the world has forgotten evening
and dawn is not yet a promise.
A time when it is far too early to arise,
but so late that going to bed makes small sense.”
-- Robin Hobb, Assassin's Quest

"I could hear the roots of loneliness
creeping through me when the world was hushed
at four o'clock in the morning.”
-- Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
“Night is the hardest time to be alive ...
It lasts so long, and four a.m. knows all my secrets.”
-- Poppy Z. Brite
