QUOTES ON MORNING


O Holy virgin! clad in purest white,
Unlock heaven's golden gates and issue forth;
Awake the dawn that sleeps in heaven; let light
Rise from the chambers of the east, and bring
The honey'd dew that cometh on waking day.
O radiant morning, salute the sun,
Roused like a huntsman to the chase, and with
Thy buskin'd feet appear upon our hills.
To Morning

O, with what freshness, what solemnity and beauty, is each new day born; as if to say to insensate man, "Behold! thou hast one more chance! Strive for immortal glory!"

HARRIET BEECHER STOWE, Uncle Tom's Cabin

Oh, fleeting morning star, mightest thou never yield to the dawn that even now presses on thy azure skirts! And thou, great Orb of all, do thou stay down in the cold ocean foam; let night for once advance her trembling empire into thine!

PEDRO CALDERON DE LA BARCA, The Mayor of Zalamea

No man knows till he has suffered from the night how sweet and dear to his heart and eye the morning can be.

BRAM STOKER, Dracula
