The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapor is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on seas and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.
- John Muir
Watching the clock is not the same as watching a sunrise.
-Sophia Bedford Pierce
To him whose elastic and vigorous thought keeps pace with the sun, the day is a perpetual morning. It matters not what the clocks say or the attitudes and labors of men. Morning is when I am awake and there is a dawn in me.
-Henry David Thoreau
