Ronald Knox (1888-1957)
From Literary Anecdotes About 20th Century Authors

IT is alleged by a friend of my family that I used to suffer from insomnia at the age of four; and that when she asked me how I managed to occupy my time at night I answered,

`I lie awake and think about the past.'

From Ronald Knox, Literary Distractions (1941), p. 208.
