I am a quote person. I love them. I read them as often as possible and keep a running list going of quotes that speak to me in some way. I have decided that since some are being routed here to find quotes about the sunset, there should really be a few quotes about the sunset and sunrise. And so, here they are:
"Regrets were like the clouds on the horizon, soon blown away by the lazy summer winds and lost in the splendor of the sunset; just as the endurance of pain was rewarded by unexpected pleasure once the ordeal ended. It was one of the shimmery curiosities of life that God kissed the emotional cuts, just as mothers and fathers kissed the real ones."
-Diane Palmer, Desperado
People talk too much. People think too much. We're all village idiots enamored with out shadows. Oblivious to the setting sun.
-In Plain Sight, USA Network Show
After 5,000 years of recorded human history, you wonder, what part of 2,000,000 sunrises doesn't a pessimist understand?
What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
Nobody of any real culture, for instance, ever talks nowadays about the beauty of sunset. Sunsets are quite old fashioned. To admire them is a distinct sign of provincialism of temperament. Upon the other hand they go on.
It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.
At sunset, Nature is painting for us... day after day... pictures of infinite beauty.
Peace... is seeing a sunset, and knowing who to thank.
The sunrise is God's greeting- the sunset, his signature.
Remember the sunset. Live your life. Love your life. As much and as best you can.
