Night Owls, a few quotations to lift your spirits when facing condemnation from chirping larks, aka early-birds, about your sublime love of the night.
I always had this fantasy of doing a very very late-night radio show . . . I can almost picture myself just being able to talk to people at night like that, just ramble on, half a dream, half not. And also I love listening to music at that time of night. It seeps into you in a way. That is a magic time. ~Laurie Anderson New York Times
Whoever thinks of going to bed before twelve o’clock is a scoundrel. ~Samuel Johnson Quote Garden

Most glorious night!
Thou wert not sent for slumber!

Know the mind of your adversary, owls—and their fearmongering ways! Here is some anti-night owl propaganda: dialog from Night of the Living Dead, a film created by and for larks.
Johnny: [in a creepy voice] They’re coming to get you, Barbara!
Barbara: Stop it! You’re ignorant!
Johnny: They’re coming for you, Barbara!
Barbara: Stop it! You’re acting like a child!
Johnny: They’re coming for you!
[points to the cemetery zombie]
Johnny: Look, there comes one of them now!
Barbara: He’ll hear you!
Johnny: Here he comes now! I’m getting out of here!
