Actually, I think it was within the German period of the so-called "Sturm und Drang", of which Goethe and Schiller are far most known from, sleeping - o the need to sleep - was actuall considered as kind of a weakness - a weakness of nature the human mind had to overcome.
I have been searching for articles of proof for what I think I remember about this, but unfortunately I couldn't find any. Sorry.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
