Famous quotes containing the word morning:

    Morning work! By the blushes of Aurora and the music of Memnon, what should be man’s morning work in this world?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The morning rose, that untouched stands
    Armed with her briars, how sweet she smells!
    But plucked and strained through ruder hands,
    Her sweets no longer with her dwells,
    But scent and beauty both are gone,
    And leaves fall from her, one by one.
    Sir Robert Ayton (1570–1638)

    Ah! I have penetrated to those meadows on the morning of many a first spring day, jumping from hummock to hummock, from willow root to willow root, when the wild river valley and the woods were bathed in so pure and bright a light as would have waked the dead, if they had been slumbering in their graves, as some suppose. There needs no stronger proof of immortality. All things must live in such a light. O Death, where was thy sting? O Grave, where was thy victory, then?
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
