    I have been as sincere a worshipper of Aurora as the Greeks.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Well, if it isn’t Aurora Ratchett, goddess of the dawn, a sight for sore eyes.... I always think of Ebenezer Pritchett, the day he led that last charge at Shiloh. There was a gallant trooper, your father. You know, there went a man of quality. There went the flower of the South.
    Laurence Stallings (1894–1968)

    He for our saik that sufferit to be slane,
    And lyk a lamb in sacrifice wes dicht,
    Is lyk a lyone rissin up agane,
    And as gyane raxit him on hicht;
    Sprungin is Aurora radius and bricht,
    On loft is gone the glorius Appollo,
    The blisfull day depairtit fro the nycht:
    Surrexit Dominus de sepulchro.
    William Dunbar (c. 1465–c. 1530)
