Benjamin Franklin

"I look upon death to be as necessary to our constitution as sleep. We shall rise refreshed in the morning."

Khalil Gibran

"In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed."

Henry David Thoreau

"The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake. There is more day to dawn. The sun is but a morning star."

Anais Nin

"A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee, joy accompanied me as I walked."

Charles Dickens

"Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own; and from morning to night, as from the cradle to the grave, it is but a succession of changes so gentle and easy that we can scarcely mark their progress."

Samuel Johnson

"The happiest part of a man's life is what he passes lying awake in bed in the morning."

Jennifer Aniston

"I love that feeling of being in love, the effect of having butterflies when you wake up in the morning. That is special."

Billy Graham

"I can tell you that God is alive because I talked to him this morning."

Vincent Van Gogh

"Many people seem to think it foolish, even superstitious, to believe that the world could still change for the better. And it is true that in winter it is sometimes so bitingly cold that one is tempted to say, 'What do I care if there is a summer; its warmth is no help to me now.' Yes, evil often seems to surpass good. But then, in spite of us, and without our permission, there comes at last an end to the bitter frosts. One morning the wind turns, and there is a thaw. And so I must still have hope."

Emily Dickinson

"Morning is the best of all times in the garden. The sun is not yet hot. Sweet vapors rise from the earth.

Night dew clings to the soil and makes plants glisten. Birds call to one another. Bees are already at work."

Henry Ward Beecher

"We sleep, but the loom of life never stops, and the pattern which was weaving when the sun went down is weaving when it comes up in the morning."

Robert Duvall

"I love the smell of juice boxes in the morning."

Irish Blessings

"May your joys be as bright as the morning, and your sorrows merely be shadows that fade in the sunlight of love. May you have enough happiness to keep you sweet, enough trials to keep you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, enough hope to keep you."

Og Mandino

"Welcome every morning with a smile. Look on the new day as another special gift from your Creator, another golden opportunity to complete what you were unable to finish yesterday."

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Each morning see some task begun, each evening sees it close; Something attempted, something done."

J. R. R. Tolkien

"What do you mean? Do you wish me a good morning, or mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not; or that you feel good on this morning; or that it is a morning to be good on?"

Elbert Hubbard

"Be pleasant until ten o'clock in the morning and the rest of the day will take care of itself."

Henry David Thoreau

"To him whose elastic and vigorous thought keeps pace with the sun, the day is a perpetual morning."
