From Dawn To Dusk
“However long the night, the dawn will break.”
-- African Proverb
“Too low they build who build below the skies.”
-- Edward Young
"Let the sky and God be our limit and eternity our measurement.”
-- Marcus Garvey
“Only from the heart can you touch the sky."
"Thank God men cannot fly,
and lay waste the sky as well as the earth."
-- Henry David Thoreau
“When you realize how perfect everything is
you will tilt your head back and laugh at the sky."
"I thank you, God, for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees,
and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural,
which is infinite, which is yes. "
-- e.e. cummings
“Beware of the man whose God is in the skies”
-- George Bernard Shaw
“Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it.
And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are;
there cannot be one without the other, yet they cannot exist at the same time.
How would it feel to be always together, yet forever apart?”
“What if a demon were to creep after you one night, in your loneliest loneliness,
and say, 'This life which you live must be lived by you once again and innumerable times more; and every pain and joy and thought and sigh must come again to you,
all in the same sequence. The eternal hourglass will again and again be turned
and you with it, dust of the dust!' Would you throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse that demon? Or would you answer,
'Never have I heard anything more divine'?”
-- Friedrich Nietzsche
