The promised quotation correction

Because the actual line from The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley is better than what I managed to cobble together from memory, I present it to you. It is a bit of internal monologue as the main character, Harry, attempts to define her feelings about insomnia: “I rarely feel much the worse the next day, except for a sort of moral irritability that seems to go with the feeling that I ought to have spent all those silent hours asleep.” My moral irritability comes more from spending silent hours reading when I ought to be working. But hey – that’s how I learn all these cool quotations, right!?
