Sunset quotes by Charles M. Schulz

Sunset quotes by Bram Stoker
#4. Far, far away, there is a beautiful Country which no human eye has ever seen in waking hours. Under the Sunset it lies, where the distant horizon bounds the day, and where the clouds, splendid with light and colour, give a promise of the glory and beauty which encompass it. Sometimes it is given to us to see it in dreams. #Quote by Bram Stoker
Sunset quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#5. He felt the scent and the golden glow of the sunset light as intensely as he felt the dead silence which reigned between himself and Hester almost with the effect of a physical presence. #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Sunset quotes by Olivia Cunning
#6. Sed's heart sank to his toes. Too late for that. He was already on the boat. Was Jessica planning to kill him and then dump his body overboard before sailing off into the sunset with his drummer and bassist? #Quote by Olivia Cunning
Sunset quotes by Rick Yancey
#7. See him now, his face lit up with delight at the parade advancing on every side, of cart and carriage, delivery truck and spacious brougham, of ladies in their colorful crinoline and dandies dandier than the foppish fop astride boneshaker bicycles weaving between the vendors' carts as expertly as rodeo barrel racers. Sunset was still almost two hours hence, but the buildings on the western side cast long engulfing shadows, between which the granite pavement glowed honey gold in smoky shafts of slanting light, the light painting the facades along the eastern side the same Hyblaean hue. #Quote by Rick Yancey
Sunset quotes by Joyce Rupp
#8. No matter how hard I fight to stay "in the light," I will have some darkness in my life. This is as sure as the patter of sunrise and sunset in the natural course of the day. #Quote by Joyce Rupp
Sunset quotes by Jean Rhys
#9. I hated the mountains and the hills, the rivers and the rain. I hated the sunsets of whatever colour, I hated its beauty and its magic and the secret I would never know. I hated its indifference and the cruelty which was part of its loveliness. Above all I hated her. For she belonged to the magic and the loveliness. She had left me thirsty and all my life would be thirst and longing for what I had lost before I found it. #Quote by Jean Rhys
Sunset quotes by Louis Brandsdorfer
#10. Toward the evening the sky took on the same color as the fires. Everything took on that color, the sky, the buildings, even the ground. Just before the sunset the red in the sky would deepen to the color of blood. I imagined the sky bleeding. I imagined the heavens suffering with us. To this day a red sunset reminds me of the bleeding sky of Auschwitz. #Quote by Louis Brandsdorfer
Sunset quotes by Sanober Khan
#11. may my faith always be
at the end of the day

like a hummingbird...returning
to its favorite flower. #Quote by Sanober Khan
Sunset quotes by J.K. Rowling
#12. Give her hell from us, Peeves."

And Peeves, whom Harry had never seen take an order from a student before, swept his belled hat from his head and sprang to a salute as Fred and George wheeled about to tumultuous applause from the students below and sped out of the open front doors into the glorious sunset. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Sunset quotes by Rehan Khan
#13. The sun was a fiery furnace of gold, but finally it set in the west and the cosmos glittered like a million burning embers, briefly reminding Awa of poetry readings under starry skies in Timbuktu #Quote by Rehan Khan
Sunset quotes by Soma Mukherjee
#14. In The Sunset Sky
The sunset sky dazzling with the golden hues,
Taking bow in brilliant sparkle of experience
Is it not a climax, of the story so far, that was today?
Or is it building anticipation of the night yet to come.
Watch the days go,
some proud of their accomplishments
Some leaving sighs of disappointments, Leaving all in awe of its Amaranthine twists and turns
And the fortunate get to see the moon trying to steal the show from setting sun,
Oh she is such a show off, isn't she, basking in reflected glory
Its magical, the sunset sky,Puzzling, sometimes just like a riddle,
Leaving the nature stunned and amazed For it has been filling the canvas whole day with colours
And now the sunset threatens to hide them all
And in dark all the colours will be same
A cue for the wise.
Sunset sky has so much to offer,
is she not a fine exampleof how uncertain a life can be
Often reminding no matter what you planned, there will besome unexpected returns
For End has its own brain, its own script
Charting its own course
So why just the beginning,every moment of the life should be grand,
meted with equal passion and fervor
She has been so clever; the sunset sky
Leaving Twinkling cryptic messages for the night sky
For even the dark has sparkle and hope if you keep your head up,
A constant reminder that exuberance is an attitude of deep,rich, warm hearts
#Quote by Soma Mukherjee
Sunset quotes by Erin McCarthy
#15. I can't give you the sunset, but I can give you the night. #Quote by Erin McCarthy
Sunset quotes by Elizabeth Bishop
#16. Questions of Travel

There are too many waterfalls here; the crowded streams
hurry too rapidly down to the sea,
and the pressure of so many clouds on the mountaintops
makes them spill over the sides in soft slow-motion,
turning to waterfalls under our very eyes.
- For if those streaks, those mile-long, shiny, tearstains,
aren't waterfalls yet,
in a quick age or so, as ages go here,
they probably will be.
But if the streams and clouds keep travelling, travelling,
the mountains look like the hulls of capsized ships,
slime-hung and barnacled.

Think of the long trip home.
Should we have stayed at home and thought of here?
Where should we be today?
Is it right to be watching strangers in a play
in this strangest of theatres?
What childishness is it that while there's a breath of life
in our bodies, we are determined to rush
to see the sun the other way around?
The tiniest green hummingbird in the world?
To stare at some inexplicable old stonework,
inexplicable and impenetrable,
at any view,
instantly seen and always, always delightful?
Oh, must we dream our dreams
and have them, too?
And have we room
for one more folded sunset, still quite warm?

But surely it would have been a pity
not to have seen the trees along this road,
really exaggerated in their beauty,
not to have seen them gesturing
like #Quote by Elizabeth Bishop
Sunset quotes by Before Sunset (supposedly Albert Einstein)
#17. If you don't believe in any kind of magic, or mystery, basically, (you're) as good as dead #Quote by Before Sunset (supposedly Albert Einstein)
Sunset quotes by Oscar Eccentric
#18. Who can blame the poor lad for not advertising his rather unique name? Especially when his mother's maiden name is Jewel Diamond Sunrise and his grandmother's is Dawn Moonbeam Sunrise. Dawn Sunrise, such a pretty name. And it is true that your mother was almost named Red Sky Sunrise, but your grandfather said he would divorce her mother if she didn't change it. He was in the navy and thought that it was a bad omen. Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning, you know. And Max's grandmother didn't tell anyone that she considered calling her daughter Sunset Sunrise. Catchy isn't it? #Quote by Oscar Eccentric
Sunset quotes by Herman Melville
#19. Fifty years ago did Nathan Swain kill fifteen whales between a sunrise and a sunset. And that harpoon - so like a corkscrew now - was flung #Quote by Herman Melville
Sunset quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#20. Kresh kept silent beside me as Baron rehearsed his deadly plan. I listened with my eyes aimed at the horizon, witnessing the night consume a final red vein of daylight. It struck me that nightfall always drowned the sunset. Never did the sun resurface from where it sank, nor would it ever. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Sunset quotes by Rumi
#21. When you see the setting, wait for the rising. Why worry about a sunset or a fading moon? #Quote by Rumi
Sunset quotes by Jes Baker
#22. Beauty is something that is everywhere. The sunset is beautiful. Human connection is beautiful. Kindness is beautiful. Bodies are beautiful --all of them. Beauty is ubiquitous, inherent, and found in all of us: on the outside and the inside. #Quote by Jes Baker
Sunset quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#23. October is the month for painted leaves. Their rich glow now flashes round the world. As fruits and leaves and the day itself acquire a bright tint just before they fall, so the year near its setting. October is its sunset sky; November the later twilight. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Sunset quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#24. The wisdom of the sun is not in producing light and heat, but in sharing them with everyone and everything! Wisdom that is not shared means conceit, and if there is conceit there is no wisdom! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Sunset quotes by Kenneth Grahame
#25. The pageant of the river bank had marched steadily along, unfolding itself in scene-pictures that succeeded itself in stately procession.

Purple loosestrife arrived early, shaking luxuriant locks along the edge of the mirror whence its own face laughed back at it. Willow-herb, tender and wistful, like a pink sunset-cloud was not slow to follow. Comfrey, the purple hand-in-hand with the white, crept forth to take its place in the line; and at last one morning the diffident and delaying dog-rose stepped delicately on the stage, and one knew, as if string music has announced it in stately chords that strayed into a gavotte, that June at last was here.

One member of the company was still awaited; the shepherd-boy for the nymphs to woo, the knight for whom the ladies waited at the window, the prince that was to kiss the sleeping summer back to life and love. But when meadow-sweet, debonair and odorous in amber jerkin, moved graciously to his place in the group, then the play was ready to begin. #Quote by Kenneth Grahame
Sunset quotes by Stephen King
#26. The sky of the color of ashes in the east and embers in the west. #Quote by Stephen King
Sunset quotes by Thomas Pynchon
#27. It had been dark at the beach for hours, he hadn't been smoking much and it wasn't headlights – but before she turned away, he could swear he saw light falling on her face, the orange light just after sunset that catches a face turned to the west, watching the ocean for someone to come in on the last wave of the day, in to shore and safety. #Quote by Thomas Pynchon
Sunset quotes by Rachel Roy
#28. Sunsets are my escape into the reality I want to continuously live. #Quote by Rachel Roy
Sunset quotes by Heidi McLaughlin
#29. I'd love to find a way to keep us here and shut out the outside world forever or for us to run off into the sunset and forget everyone around us. But truth be told, life just isn't that easy - it's unorganized, dysfunctional and crazy. Take it from me... if you think your life is perfect, you're lying to yourself. #Quote by Heidi McLaughlin
Sunset quotes by Peter Mayle
#30. What a marvelous sunset,' she said. 'Yes,' replied her husband. 'Most impressive for such a small village. #Quote by Peter Mayle
Sunset quotes by Tom Wilson
#31. About the only time losing is more fun than winning is when you're fighting temptation. #Quote by Tom Wilson
Sunset quotes by Christopher Stocking
#32. Gina was beautiful like a sunset. You see it and you think of how beautiful it is, and then it's over and you move on. But Trista was beautiful like a song. The kind of song you play over and over and never get sick of hearing. The kind of song he wanted to write for her, but he knew he would never be able to string together the right combination of notes to show her how he really felt. #Quote by Christopher Stocking
Sunset quotes by Dean F. Wilson
#33. As the darkness deepened, the sky was streaked with veins of red, the last low beats of a dying sun. Against this scarlet canopy the hulk of the Rust Road's twin peaks stood tall, mountains of metal, unnaturally jagged. Their sharp pinnacles pierced the sky, and Jacob could not help but wonder if that explained the blood there. #Quote by Dean F. Wilson
Sunset quotes by Charlie Chaplin
#34. I have admired the romantic elegance of the Place de la Concorde in Paris, have felt the mystic message from a thousand glittering windows at sunset in New York, but to me the view of the London Thames from our hotel window transcends them all for utilitarian grandeur - something deeply human. #Quote by Charlie Chaplin
Sunset quotes by William  Boyd
#35. The pleasures of my life here are simple – simple, inexpensive and democratic. A warm hill of Marmande tomatoes on a roadside vendor's stall. A cold beer on a pavement table of the Café de France – Marie Thérèse inside making me a sandwich au camembert. Munching the knob of a fresh baguette as I wander back from Sainte-Sabine. The farinaceous smell of the white dust raised by a breeze from the driveway. A cuckoo sounding the perfectly silent woods beyond the meadow. A huge grey, cerise, pink, orange and washed-out blue of a sunset seen from my rear terrace. The drilling of the cicadas at noon – the soft dialing-tone of the crickets at dusk slowly gathers. A good book, a hammock and a cold, beaded bottle of blanc sec. A rough red wine and steak frites. The cool, dark, shuttered silence of my bedroom – and, as I go to sleep, the prospect that all this will be available to me again, unchanged, tomorrow. #Quote by William Boyd
Sunset quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#36. The two real political parties in America are the Winners and the Losers. The people don't acknowledge this. They claim membership in two imaginary parties, the Republicans and the Democrats, instead. #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Sunset quotes by Andrew Sean Greer
#37. Less knows so well the pleasures of youth - danger, excitement, losing oneself in a dark club with a pill, a shot, a stranger's mouth - and, with Robert and his friends, the pleasures of age - comfort and ease, beauty and taste, old friends and old stories and wine, whiskey, sunset over water. His entire life, he has alternated between the two. There is his own distant youth, that daily humiliation of rinsing out your one good shirt and putting on your onw good smile, along with the daily rush of newness: new pleasures, new people, new reflections of yourself. There is Robert's middle age of selecting his vices as carefully as tiles in a Paris shop, napping in the sunlight on an afternoon and getting up from a chair and hearing the creak of death. The city of youth, the country of age. But in between, where Less is living - that exurban existence? How has he never learned to live it? #Quote by Andrew Sean Greer
Sunset quotes by Wendy Mass
#38. Mr. Rudolph reaches out and lifts the flower out of its vase. "To a flower, this photograph means nothing. So when you ask what is the meaning of life, there can be no answer that will apply to everyone and everything. What is a photograph, or a sunset, to a flower? We all bring our own perceptions, needs, and experiences to everything we do. We will all interpret an event, or a sunset, differently."

He pauses, and I am trying to keep up with him. "Basically," I (Jeremy) say slowly, concentrating on my words. "What you're saying is that it's all relative. The meaning of the sunset, or of life itself, is different for everyone?"

Exactly," he says.

... As we head slowly into the big room, I turn to him and ask, "But even if the sunset has different meanings for everyone, it still has meaning, right?"

"That's a tricky question to answer," Mr. Rudolph says, stopping to replace the frame back on the wall. "That sunset will still shine just as surely, just as colorfully, whether it is shining on a wedding or a war. So it would seem that the sunset itself doesn't have inherent meaning; it is just doing its job. If the sunset doesn't have meaning apart from what we give it, does a rock? Or a fish? Or life itself? But just because a park bench, for instance, doesn't have meaning, that doesn't mean it doesn't have worth."

... We have reached the door now, and I'm not sure I'm any closer to understanding what's in the box. My shou #Quote by Wendy Mass
Sunset quotes by Lauren Oliver
#39. The last laugh, the last cup of coffee, the last sunset, the last time you jump through a sprinkler, or eat an ice-cream cone, or stick your tongue out to catch a snowflake. You just don't know. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Sunset quotes by Darnell Lamont Walker
#40. The sun leaves often and I watch like a lover who's not yet vulnerable enough to ask it to stay a little longer. #Quote by Darnell Lamont Walker
Sunset quotes by Shashi Tharoor
#41. The Indian tricolour was raised just before sunset, and as it fluttered up the flagpole a late-monsoon rainbow emerged behind it, a glittering tribute from the heavens. #Quote by Shashi Tharoor
Sunset quotes by D. A. Carson
#42. Although there are things that can be done to enhance corporate worship, there is a profound sense in which excellent worship cannot be attained merely by pursuing excellent worship. In the same way that, according to Jesus, you cannot find yourself until you lose yourself, so also you cannot find excellent corporate worship until you stop trying to find excellent corporate worship and pursue God himself. Despite the protestations, one sometimes wonders if we are beginning to worship worship rather than worship God. As a brother put it to me, it's a bit like those who begin by admiring the sunset and soon begin to admire themselves admiring the sunset. #Quote by D. A. Carson
Sunset quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#43. Perfection is a paradigm meant to keep us striving and learning and growing. Like a wondrous sunset, perfection may be beyond our reach, but it is within our view and well worth seeking after. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Sunset quotes by Dennis Randall
#44. I've reached that point in my journey, where there is more scenery in the rear view mirror than there is roadway ahead, I now have the time to write. I would rather hit the end of the road at full throttle than coast to a stop in the sunset. #Quote by Dennis Randall
Sunset quotes by Carl Jung
#45. No one should deny the danger of the descent, but it can be risked. No one need risk it, but it is certain that someone will. And let those who go down the sunset way do so with open eyes, for it is a sacrifice which daunts even the gods. Yet every descent is followed by an ascent. #Quote by Carl Jung
Sunset quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#46. One of the strange things about living in the world is that it is only now and then one is quite sure one is going to live forever and ever and ever. One knows it sometimes when one gets up at the tender solemn dawn-time and goes out and stands out and throws one's head far back and looks up and up and watches the pale sky slowly changing and flushing and marvelous unknown things happening until the East almost makes one cry out and one's heart stands still at the strange unchanging majesty of the rising of the sun--which has been happening every morning for thousands and thousands and thousands of years. One knows it then for a moment or so. And one knows it sometimes when one stands by oneself in a wood at sunset and the mysterious deep gold stillness slanting through and under the branches seems to be saying slowly again and again something one cannot quite hear, however much one tries. Then sometimes the immense quiet of the dark blue at night with the millions of stars waiting and watching makes one sure; and sometimes a sound of far-off music makes it true; and sometimes a look in someone's eyes. #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Sunset quotes by Colleen Houck
#47. He sighed and bowed deeply. Sundari. I was standing here thinking nothing could be more beautiful than this sunset tonight, but I was mistaken. You standing here in the setting sun with your hair and skin aglow is almost more than a man can ... fully appreciate. #Quote by Colleen Houck
Sunset quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#48. The blue of daylight
fades and chills as the sun sinks
beneath clouds of fire. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Sunset quotes by Elizabeth McCracken
#49. As for me, I believe that if there's a God - and I am as neutral on the subject as is possible - then the most basic proof of His existence is black humor. What else explains it, that odd, reliable comfort that billows up at the worst moments, like a beautiful sunset woven out of the smoke over a bombed city. #Quote by Elizabeth McCracken
Sunset quotes by Pablo Neruda
#50. Clenched Soul
We have lost even this twilight.
No one saw us this evening hand in hand.
While the blue night dropped on the world.
I have seen from my window
the fiesta of sunset in the distant mountain tops.
Sometimes a piece of sun
burned like a coin in my hand.
I remembered you with my soul clenched
in the sadness of mine that you know.
Where we you then?
Who else was there?
Saying what?
Why will the whole of love come on me suddenly
when I am sad and feel you are far away?
The book fell that always closed at twilight
and my blue sweater rolled like a hurt dog at my feet.
Always, always you recede through the evenings
towards the twilight erasing statues. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Sunset quotes by Suchen Christine Lim
#51. From sunrise to sunset, from one day to the next, till our black hair turns white, we eat, we sleep, we bear children and we watch them grow. We watch them get married and in turn bear children of their own. How time flies, we say to ourselves. Then one day, we look down at our feet and we're surprised. Roots have sprouted in the ground of our daily living. #Quote by Suchen Christine Lim
Sunset quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#52. The sun, rising and setting in splendid colors, never grows tired of its admirers―much like a lady, aglow with grace, never grows tired of chivalrous acts or pretty flowers. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Sunset quotes by Jay McLean
#53. My hair smells like the morning dew on a holy sunset and praying elephants. #Quote by Jay McLean
Sunset quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#54. When I consider how, after sunset, the stars come out gradually in troops from behind the hills and woods, I confess that I could not have contrived a more curious and inspiring sight. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Sunset quotes by Ann Landers
#55. Sensual pleasures have the fleeting brilliance of a comet; a happy marriage has the tranquillity of a lovely sunset. #Quote by Ann Landers
Sunset quotes by Frank Capra
#56. I think of the medium as a people-to-people medium, not cameraman-to-people, not direction-to-people, not writers-to-people, but people-to-peopleYou can only involve an audience with people. You can't involve them with gimmicks, with sunsets, with hand-held cameras, zoom shots, or anything else. They couldn't care less about those things. But you give them something to worry about, some person they can worry about, and care about, and you've got them, you've got them involved. #Quote by Frank Capra
Sunset quotes by Lev Grossman
#57. The flaming ruins of a five-alarm sunset smoldered in the window behind her, which was currently pointing west. "It #Quote by Lev Grossman
Sunset quotes by Barbara Cartland
#58. After forty a woman has to choose between losing her figure or her face. My advice is to keep your face, and stay sitting down. #Quote by Barbara Cartland
Sunset quotes by Pablo Neruda
#59. My soul is an empty carousel at sunset. #Quote by Pablo Neruda
Sunset quotes by Neil Leckman
#60. Remember children, once I am gone I will be part of it all
Everything will be me and together be free
The songs of the birds will be my voice in joyous refrain
The caress of the soft summer breeze will be my touch from afar
The sunset in glorious golden red hues, my display of love
The soft murmur of the stream as it lulls you to sleep my lullaby
Close your eyes and open your heart that I may touch you.
There shall I dwell ever close, embracing you with every beat of your heart
Smile and feel the joy I share now with you. #Quote by Neil Leckman
Sunset quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#61. One day," you said to me, "I saw the sunset forty-four times!"
And a little later you added:
"You know
one loves the sunset, when one is so sad ... "
"Were you so sad, then?" I asked, "on the day of the forty-four sunsets?"
But the little prince made no reply. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Sunset quotes by Willa Cather
#62. Yes, Sangre de Cristo; but no matter how scarlet the sunset, those red hills never became vermillion, but a more and more intense rose-carnelian; not the colour of living blood, the Bishop had often reflected, but the colour of the dried blood of saints and martyres preserved in old churches in Rome, which liquefies upon occasion. #Quote by Willa Cather
Sunset quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#63. Our existence may not be an intelligible justice, or even a recognizable wrong. But our existence is still a story. In the fiery alphabet of every sunset is written, "to be continued in our next." If #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Sunset quotes by James Clavell
#64. We have a saying that time has no single measure, that time can be like frost or lightning or a tear or siege or storm or sunset, or even like a rock. #Quote by James Clavell
Sunset quotes by Vironika Tugaleva
#65. Life is a conversation with yourself. And who are you if not the eternal presence behind everything that is, was, and will be? Like this, the blow of each breeze and the beauty of each sunset can teach you about yourself, if you listen. If you hear. #Quote by Vironika Tugaleva
Sunset quotes by Carlos Santana
#66. There's never one sunrise the same or one sunset the same. #Quote by Carlos Santana
Sunset quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#67. Softly the evening came. The sun from the western horizon Like a magician extended his golden want o'er the landscape; Trinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest Seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Sunset quotes by Joseph Gordon-Levitt
#68. I stood and watched
the final sunset as the
world was ending
light that once would fall
was now ascending #Quote by Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Sunset quotes by Haruki Murakami
#69. Then I got undressed and, crawling under the covers, sat up in bed and sipped my drink. I felt like I was going to fade out any second, but I had to allow myself this luxury. A ritual interlude I like so much between the time I get into bed and the time I fall asleep. Having a drink in bed while listening to music and reading a book. As precious to me as a beautiful sunset or good clean air. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Sunset quotes by Harlan Coben
#70. The sun was now in its death throes, bruising the sky a coiling purple and orange. #Quote by Harlan Coben
Sunset quotes by Aimee Bender
#71. My birthday is in March, and that year it fell during an especially bright spring week, vivid and clear in the narrow residential streets where we lived just a handful of blocks south of Sunset. The night-blooming jasmine that crawled up our neighborhood's front gate released its heady scent at dusk, and to the north, the hills rolled charmingly over the horizon, houses tucked into the brown. Soon, daylight savings time would arrive, and even at early nine, I associated my birthday with the first hint of summer, with the feeling in classrooms of open windows and lighter clothing and in a few months no more homework. My hair got lighter in spring, from light brown to nearly blond, almost like my mother's ponytail tassel. In the neighborhood gardens, the agapanthus plants started to push out their long green robot stems to open up to soft purples and blues. #Quote by Aimee Bender
Sunset quotes by Umair Siddiqui
#72. The beautiful affair of sun, sky and the sea brings a perfect moment of love, peace and joy #Quote by Umair Siddiqui
Sunset quotes by Dave Sitek
#73. I want to make hand-held music, undiminished by the need to make everybody in the world listen at once. The goal is to ride into the sunset, stereo blasting, and all of what's got you worried will disappear in the rear view mirror! #Quote by Dave Sitek
Sunset quotes by Oksana Rus
#74. It was a vision of the one thing that we both hoped someday would be...the warmth of our bodies next to each other's, reflected in sunset of our secret place... We longed for it to be like this, each and every evening... Dancing in the night, playing hide-and-seek in the day, the beauty of our souls blossoms... Never before had we felt so happy, never before had we felt so alive... We hear the birds, sensing the cheerful breeze, the rainbow's end does linger here....our tenderness, sighs and spirits speak and we do know clear... This place is where love and laughter meet... You take my hand, kiss each finger tip, with tears in your eyes you touch my cheek and whisper of how wondrous this, we share our love once again. The love that gives us wings to fly anew. Our hearts in sweet pleasing pain beat as one in the rhythm of long forgotten yet melody... Together again at this wondrous place, where just our presence adds more grace and makes it what was meant to be - a place for you a place for me... #Quote by Oksana Rus
Sunset quotes by Anthony Liccione
#75. Today I seen a dove collide into the sunset, on the way to heaven and a ruined raven chewing on death, over the pavement. #Quote by Anthony Liccione
Sunset quotes by Stephen King
#76. The water was glassy and calm, still candy-colored in the afterglow of sunset. #Quote by Stephen King
Sunset quotes by Joseph Pilates
#77. Daily, from sunrise to sunset, the radio, newspapers and magazines broadcast to the world how to maintain health, how to regain health ... the conflicting information, expressive of the different opinions of these various health authorities, has proved to be nothing less than confusion ... #Quote by Joseph Pilates
Sunset quotes by Virginia Woolf
#78. And now as if the cleaning and the scrubbing and the scything and the mowing had drowned it there rose that half-heard melody, that intermittent music which the ear half catches but lets fall; a bark, a bleat; irregular, intermittent, yet somehow related; the hum of an insect, the tremor of cut grass, dissevered yet somehow belonging; the jar of a dor beetle, the squeak of a wheel, loud, low, but mysteriously related; which the ear strains to bring together and is always on the verge of harmonising but they are never quite heard, never fully harmonised, and at last, in the evening, one after another the sounds die out, and the harmony falters, and silence falls. With the sunset sharpness was lost, and like mist rising, quiet rose, quiet spread, the wind settled; loosely the world shook itself down to sleep, darkly here without a light to it, save what came green suffused through leaves, or pale on the white flowers by the window.
[Lily Briscoe had her bag carried up to the house late one evening in September. Mr. Carmichael came by the same train.] #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Sunset quotes by Terry Pratchett
#79. Why does the third of the three brothers, who shares his food with the old woman in the wood, go on to become king of the country? Why does James Bond manage to disarm the nuclear bomb a few seconds before it goes off rather than, as it were, a few seconds afterwards? Because a universe where that did not happen would be a dark and hostile place. Let there be goblin hordes, let there be terrible environmental threats, let there be giant mutated slugs if you really must, but let there also be hope. It may be a grim, thin hope, an Arthurian sword at sunset, but let us know that we do not live in vain. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Sunset quotes by Adriaan Kortlandt
#80. Once I saw a chimpanzee gaze at a particularly beautiful sunset for a full 15 minutes, watching the changing colors [and then] retire to the forest without picking a pawpaw for supper. #Quote by Adriaan Kortlandt
Sunset quotes by John Lennon
#81. Part of me suspects that I'm a loser, and the other part of me thinks I'm God Almighty. #Quote by John Lennon
Sunset quotes by Ace Antonio Hall
#82. To capture a California sunset in South Pasadena is to hold an angel's wings with bated breath. #Quote by Ace Antonio Hall
Sunset quotes by Samuel Florman
#83. We recognize that we cannot survive on meditation, poems and sunsets. We are restless. We have an irresistible urge to dip our hands into the stuff of the earth and do something with it. #Quote by Samuel Florman
Sunset quotes by Steve Maraboli
#84. I love that this morning's sunrise does not define itself by last night's sunset. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Sunset quotes by Pierre Reverdy
#85. ADIEU
The glimmer farther away than the head
The heart-skip
On the slope where the air rolls its voice
The spokes of the wheel
the sun in the rut
At the crossroads
near the embankment
a prayer
Some words that are not heard
Nearer the sky
And on its steps
the last square of light
("Adieu") #Quote by Pierre Reverdy
Sunset quotes by Galina Nelson
#86. The most beautiful sunset is when you have it with your beloved one and the most beautiful sunrise is quite the same. #Quote by Galina Nelson
Sunset quotes by Kent Nerburn
#87. We are all born with a belief in God. It may not have a name or face. We may not even see it as God. But it is there. It is the sense that comes over us as we stare into the starlit sky, or watch the last fiery rays of an evening sunset. It is the morning shiver as we wake on a beautiful day and smell a richness in the air that we know and love from somewhere we can't quite recall. It is the mystery behind the beginning of time and beyond the limits of space. It is a sense of otherness that brings alive something deep in our hearts. #Quote by Kent Nerburn
Sunset quotes by Joseph Conrad
#88. It's queer how out of touch with truth women are. They live in a world of their own, and there had never been anything like it, and never can be. It is too beautiful altogether, and if they were to set it up it would go to pieces before the first sunset. Some confounded fact we men have been living contentedly with ever since the day of creation would start up and knock the whole thing over. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Sunset quotes by William Gaddis
#89. But what I remember is the countryside then, the brilliance of outdoors and outwindows, and the sunlight streaming through the lozenge shapes of the glass, and we were locked away from it, locked inside to worship. And there was the sun out there for everyone else to see. Good God, tell me Clovis wasn't lonely at dawn. Tell me he wasn't sick at the sunset. #Quote by William Gaddis
Sunset quotes by Francis Spufford
#90. ...what goes on inside believers is mysterious. So far as it can be guessed at - if for some reason you wanted to guess at it - it appears to be a kind of anxious pretending, a kind of continual, nervous resistance to reality. It looks as if, to a believer, things can never be allowed just to be what they are. They always have to be translated, moralised - given an unnecessary and rather sentimental extra meaning. A sunset can't just be part of the mixed magnificence and cruelty and indifference of the world; it has to be a blessing. A meal has to be a present you're grateful for, even if it came from Tesco and the ingredients cost you £7.38. Sex can't be the spectrum of experiences you get used to as an adult, from occasional earthquake through to mild companionable buzz; it has to be, oh dear oh dear, a special thing that happens when mummies and daddies love each other very much...

Our fingers must be in our ears all the time - lalala, I can't hear you - just to keep out the plain sound of the real world.

The funny thing is that to me it's exactly the other way around. In my experience, it's belief that involves the most uncompromising attention to the nature of things of which you are capable. It's belief which demands that you dispense with illusion after illusion, while contemporary common sense requires continual, fluffy pretending. Pretending that might as well be systematic, it's so thoroughly incentivised by our culture. #Quote by Francis Spufford
Sunset quotes by Ebelsain Villegas
#91. Sunsets.
The illusion either above the horizon or below it.
When day and night are linked in a way that cannot be one without the other, yet they cannot exist at the same time. #Quote by Ebelsain Villegas
Sunset quotes by David Foster Wallace
#92. I have now seen sucrose beaches and water a very bright blue. I have seen an all-red leisure suit with flared lapels. I have smelled suntan lotion spread over 2,100 pounds of hot flesh. I have been addressed as "Mon" in three different nations. I have seen 500 upscale Americans dance the Electric Slide. I have seen sunsets that looked computer-enhanced. I have (very briefly) joined a conga line. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Sunset quotes by H.G.Wells
#93. I surveyed the broad view of our old world under the sunset of that long day #Quote by H.G.Wells
Sunset quotes by Dietrich Von Hildebrand
#94. To whom will the sublime beauty of a sunset or a Ninth Symphony of Beethoven reveal itself, but to him who approaches it reverently and unlocks his heart to it? To whom will the mystery that lies in life and manifests itself in every plant reveal itself in its full splendor, but to him who contemplates it reverently? But he who sees in it only a means of subsistence or of earning money, that is, something that can be used or employed, will not discover the meaning, structure, and significance of the world in its beauty and hidden dignity. #Quote by Dietrich Von Hildebrand
Sunset quotes by Suzanne Collins
#95. Orange? Like Effie's hair?" I say.
"A bit more muted," he says. "More like sunset. #Quote by Suzanne Collins
Sunset quotes by Virginia Woolf
#96. And at last, in the evening, one after another the sounds die out, and the harmony falters, and silence falls. With the sunset sharpness was lost and, like mist rising, quiet rose, quiet spread, the wind settled; loosely the world shook itself down to sleep, darkly here without a light to it, save what came green suffused through leaves, or pale on the white flowers by the window. [Lily #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Sunset quotes by Corina Abdulahm-Negura
#97. One day, the sun moon said: "I love you!"
Sun blushed and appeared sunset that day. #Quote by Corina Abdulahm-Negura
Sunset quotes by Izzeldin Abuelaish
#98. It is true that the sky was always beautiful but I don't remember marvelling at sunset or gazing at the dawn of a new day. Survival does not allow time for poetic reflection. #Quote by Izzeldin Abuelaish
Sunset quotes by Francis Brett Young
#99. And as we stood there, a curious thing happened: a kind of window opened in the rain, just as if a cloud had been hitched aside like a curtain, and in the space between we saw a landscape that took our breath away. The high ground along which the road ran fell away through a black, woody belt, and beyond it, for more miles than you can imagine, lay the whole basin of the Black Country, clear, amazingly clear, with innumerable smokestacks rising out of it like the merchant shipping of the world laid up in an estuary at low tide, each chimney flying a great pennant of smoke that blew away eastward by the wind, and the whole scene bleared by the light of a sulphurous sunset. No one need ever tell me again that the Black Country isn't beautiful. In all Shrophire and Radnor we'd seen nothing to touch it for vastness and savagery. And then this apocalyptic light! It was like a landscape of the end of the world, and, curiously enough, though men had built the chimneys and fired the furnaces that fed the smoke, you felt that the magnificence of the scene owed nothing to them. Its beauty was singularly inhuman and its terror – for it was terrible, you know – elemental. It made me wonder why you people who were born and bred there ever write about anything else. #Quote by Francis Brett Young
Sunset quotes by Moises Naim
#100. Whether the United States is a hegemon, an indispensable power, or an empire at sunset, and whether China or some other rival stands to take its place, may be a debate that consumes international relations. But its terms are not adapted to a world where power is decaying - where unprecedented forms of fracturing are under way within each of these countries and across systems of trade, investment, migration, and culture. Identifying who is up and who is down is less important than understanding what is going on inside those nations, political movements, corporations, and religions that are on the elevator. Who is up and who is down will matter ever less in a world in which those who get to the top don't stay there for long and are able to do less and less with the power they have while there. #Quote by Moises Naim
Sunset quotes by John Banville
#101. It was not just the drink, though, that was making me happy, but the tenderness of things, the simple goodness of the world. This sunset, for instance, how lavishly it was laid on, the clouds, the light on the sea, that heartbreaking, blue-green distance, laid on, all of it, as if to console some lost suffering waybarer. I have never really got used to being on this earth. Somethings I think our presence here is due to a cosmic blunder, that we were meant for another planet altogether, with other arrangements, and other laws, and other, grimmer skies. I try to imagine it, our true place, off on the far side of the galaxy, whirling and whirling. And the ones who were meant for here, are they out there, baffled and homesick, like us? No, they would have become extinct long ago. How could they survive, these gentle earthlings, in a world that was meant to contain us? #Quote by John Banville
Sunset quotes by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
#102. Companies trying to misrepresent the product they sell by playing with our cognitive biases, our unconscious associations, and that's sneaky. The latter is done by, say, showing a poetic picture of a sunset with a cowboy smoking and forcing an association between great romantic moments and some given product that, logically, has no possible connection to it. You seek a romantic moment and what you get is cancer. #Quote by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Sunset quotes by Larry Ellison
#103. I enjoy the competition and the process of learning as we compete. The whole thing is just fascinating. I don't know what I'll do when I retire. When I go sailing, I look around ... anyone want to race? I just love competing as opposed to just going out and watching the sunset. #Quote by Larry Ellison
Sunset quotes by Brenda Joyce
#104. Oh, I forgot to tell you the rest of it
- he's a widower now, so they can ride off together into the sunset, their wedding rings glinting. #Quote by Brenda Joyce
Sunset quotes by Nitya Prakash
#105. And before he left, he said something she could never forget.

"You're like a park bench on an evening of sunset. People come, unload their worries, rest a while and may not even want to leave. But leave they must for the world outside awaits. And you must make peace with it. #Quote by Nitya Prakash
Sunset quotes by Ann Napolitano
#106. My girl is a Buddhist, and she's always saying thank you to the beach and to the waves and the sunset. I used to think it was all woo-woo bullshit, but I like listening to her talk. I've caught myself thanking a tree once or twice. I've decided that even though it's bullshit, it's the good kind. #Quote by Ann Napolitano
Sunset quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#107. Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Sunset quotes by Max Lucado
#108. Gratitude. More aware of what you have than what you don't. Recognizing the treasure in the simple - a child's hug, fertile soil, a golden sunset. Relishing in the comfort of the common. #Quote by Max Lucado
Sunset quotes by Cheryl Strayed
#109. My mom said there's a sunrise and a sunset every day and you can choose to be there or not. You can put yourself in the way of beauty. #Quote by Cheryl Strayed
Sunset quotes by Matt Haig
#110. There are things I have experienced I will never again be able to experience for the first time: love, a kiss, Tchaikovsky, a Tahitian sunset, jazz, a hot dog, a Bloody Mary. That is the nature of things. History was - is - a one-day street. You have to keep walking forwards. But you don't always need to look ahead. Sometimes you can just look around and be happy right where you are. #Quote by Matt Haig
Sunset quotes by William Falconer
#111. The sacred lamp of day Now dipt in Western clouds his parting day. #Quote by William Falconer
Sunset quotes by Regina McBride
#112. This is my favorite time of the day. Light and dark touch for a few moments. [...] I used to wish dusk would last longer, but its quickness seems to add to making it special. #Quote by Regina McBride
Sunset quotes by Gloria Swanson
#113. It's amazing to find that so many people, who I thought really knew me, could have thought that 'Sunset Boulevard' was autobiographical. I've got nobody floating in my swimming pool. #Quote by Gloria Swanson
Sunset quotes by Jandy Nelson
#114. The sunset has turned the sky into a carnival of color as Noah and Brian walk out of the forest, hand in hand. Brian notices Dad and me first and shrugs his hand away, but Noah immediately finds it again. At this, Brian's eyes squint up and his face cracks open in a heart-crushing smile. Noah, like always around Brian, can barely keep his head on his neck, he's so happy. #Quote by Jandy Nelson
Sunset quotes by M. Fethullah Gulen
#115. The universe and the events in it are thus perfect examples to imitate. However, no matter how perfect the example is, everyone will draw and interpret objects according to their abilities. Charles Lako, commenting on aesthetics once said, that the magnificent scene at sunset would remind a farmer of the rather unaesthetic thought of dinner; the physicist, not of beauty or ugliness, but of the rightness or wrongness of the analysis of a matter. Thus, for Lalo, the sunset is beautiful only for those who are aware of beauty. Therefore, only those who see with God and hear with God can appreciate the beauty that spreads throughout existence as their senses are tuned to the spiritual realms. #Quote by M. Fethullah Gulen
Sunset quotes by Celine
#116. In a way... I put all my romanticism into that one night and I was never able to feel all this again. Like... somehow this night took things away from me and... I expressed them to you, and you took them with you! It made me feel cold, like if love wasn't for me! #Quote by Celine
Sunset quotes by Walter J. Phillips
#117. It is the sense of unfamiliar envelopment that is impressive, whether in the living grays of hoarfrost, the crimson of the heavens at sunset, or the golden suffusions of autumn. #Quote by Walter J. Phillips
Sunset quotes by Zona Gale
#118. I can never understand why I should eat at one or sleep at eleven, if it is, as it often is, my one and my eleven and nobody else's. For, as between the clock and me alone, one and eleven and all other o'clocks are mine and I am not theirs. But I have known men and women living in hotels who would interrupt a sunset to go to dine, or wave away the stars in their courses to go to sleep, merely because the hour had struck. #Quote by Zona Gale
Sunset quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#119. The story of the herd of seals. Hundreds of them on a beach; among them the hunter killing one after the other with a club. Together they could easily have crushed him - but they lay there, watching him come to murder, and did not move; he was only killing a neighbor - one neighbor after the other. The story of the European seals. The sunset of civilization. Tired shapeless Götterdämmerung. The empty banners of human rights. The sell-out of a continent. The onrushing deluge. The haggling for the last prices. The old dance of despair on the volcano. Peoples again slowly being driven into a slaughterhouse. The fleas would save themselves when the sheep were being sacrificed. As always. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Sunset quotes by Stephen King
#120. It is the laugh of a man in the grip of fond recall- the sight of a sunset, the firm feel of a woman's breast through a thin silk shirt (not that Barry has, in Henry's estimation, ever felt such a thing), or the packed warmth of beach sand. #Quote by Stephen King
Sunset quotes by Umair Siddiqui
#121. There is no place like the beach... where the land meets the sea and the sea meats the sky #Quote by Umair Siddiqui
Sunset quotes by Dolen Perkins-Valdez
#122. The woman had told the truth. The flowers were the color of sunset. And not the yellowish tinge of a lazy sun either, but the intense orange of a sun refusing to set on anyone else's terms. #Quote by Dolen Perkins-Valdez
Sunset quotes by Pat Conroy
#123. It was growing dark on this long southern evening, and suddenly, at the exact point her finger had indicated, the moon lifted a forehead of stunning gold above the horizon, lifted straight out of filigreed, light-intoxicated clouds that lay on the skyline in attendant veils.
Behind us, the sun was setting in a simultaneous congruent withdrawal and the river turned to flame in a quiet duel of gold ... The new gold of moon astonishing and ascendant, he depleted gold of sunset extinguishing itself in the long westward slide, it was the old dance of days in the Carolina marshes, the breathtaking death of days before the eyes of children, until the sun vanished, its final signature a ribbon of bullion strung across the tops of water oaks. #Quote by Pat Conroy
Sunset quotes by Rachel Hartman
#124. Camba had bent her long neck down to Ingar's level and was muttering in his ear. "Do you feel the breeze on your face?" I heard her say. "That's yours, and worth feeling. Look at those orange clouds. All the trials of a day may be endured if you know there's such a sky at the end of it. Some days I told my heart to wait, just wait, because the sunset would teach me again that my pain was nothing compared with the eternal, circling sky. #Quote by Rachel Hartman
Sunset quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#125. So we saunter toward the Holy Land, till one day the sun shall shine more brightly than ever he has done, shall perchance shine into our minds and hearts, and light up our whole lives with a great awakening light, as warm and serene and golden as on a bankside in autumn. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Sunset quotes by Ashley Newell
#126. Zac dangled his legs off the edge of the building, hanging onto every word I said as though I were some old time bard telling an epic war tale. I tried to be as detailed as possible, and I knew that I was doing a good job when he'd lean back and shut his eyes. He'd breathe slowly and watch the pictures that I painted for him with my words. He'd smile, not a cunning toothy one, but a sincere smile that comes only from being truly happy. I'd sit across from him and just watch his reactions. We could be up there for hours. I would see the sunset across his face and be as captivated with his skin's changing colours as he was with my everyday stories. That's when I learned to dislike winters. #Quote by Ashley Newell
Sunset quotes by Stefan Zweig
#127. She was at that crucial age when a women begins to regret having stayed faithful to a husband she never really loved, when the glowing sunset colors of her beauty offer her one last, urgent choice between maternal and feminine love. At such a moment a life that seemed to have chosen its course long ago is questioned once again, for the last time the magic compass needle of the will hovers between final resignation and the hope of erotic experience. #Quote by Stefan Zweig
Sunset quotes by Claude Debussy
#128. A beautiful sunset that was mistaken for a dawn. #Quote by Claude Debussy
Sunset quotes by Tyler Knott Gregson
#129. I want the light filtered down through the trees painting flesh like a mosaic and filling up the dark in me. I want to see how sunset decorates your hair. #Quote by Tyler Knott Gregson
Sunset quotes by Anne Lamott
#130. Does sunset sometimes look like the sun is coming up? Do you know what a faithful love is like? You're crying; you say you've burned yourself. But can you think of anyone who's not hazy with smoke? - Rumi #Quote by Anne Lamott
Sunset quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#131. The "Avenue," so called by the Newbridge people, was a stretch of road four or five hundred yards long, completely arched over with huge, wide-spreading apple-trees, planted years ago by an eccentric old farmer. Overhead was one long canopy of snowy fragrant bloom. Below the boughs the air was full of a purple twilight and far ahead a glimpse of painted sunset sky shone like a great rose window at the end of a cathedral aisle. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Sunset quotes by Simon Kernick
#132. Chapter 1

I was sitting in Tina's Sunset Restaurant, watching the outriggers shuffle lazily through the clear waters of Sabang Bay, when Tomboy took a seat opposite me, ordered a San Miguel from Tina's daughter, and told me someone else had to die. It was five o'clock in the afternoon, there wasn't a cloud in the sky, and up until that point I'd been in a good mood.

I told him I didn't want to kill people anymore, that it was a part of my past I didn't want to be reminded of, and he replied that he understood all that, but once again we needed the money. 'It's just the way the cookie crumbles.' he added, with the sort of bullshit 'I share your suffering' expression an undertaker might give to one of his customer's relatives. Tomboy Darke was my business partner and a man with a cliche for every occasion, including murder. #Quote by Simon Kernick
Sunset quotes by Cheryl Ladd
#133. I remember having my own apartment and a little used white Mustang car and $3000 in the bank, driving down Sunset Boulevard thinking, 'Wow, it doesn't get any better than this!' #Quote by Cheryl Ladd
Sunset quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#134. You know how the stories go. Interesting things only happen to pretty girls; you will be home by sunset. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Sunset quotes by Jarod Kintz
#135. There's nothing I like better than a beautiful sunset. Except maybe a gorgeous sunrise. And a naked woman painted pink and orange floating through the sky. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Sunset quotes by Paulo Coelho
#136. People give flowers as presents because flowers contain the true meaning of love. Anyone tries to possess a flower will have to watch its beauty fading. But if you simply look at a flower on a field, you will keep it forever, because the flower is part of the evening and the sunset and the smell of damp earth and the clouds on the horizon. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Sunset quotes by Ani DiFranco
#137. I could step off the end of this pier but i got
shit to do and an appointment on tuesday
to shed uninvited blood and tissue

to the son or daughter

at sunset
but i leave the view to the rats
and tiptoe back #Quote by Ani DiFranco
Sunset quotes by Elizabeth Bard
#138. I love the way the rain melts the colors together, like a chalk drawing on the sidewalk. There is a moment, just after sunset, when the shops turn on their lights and steam starts to fog up the windows of the cafés. In French, this twilight time implies a hint of danger. It's called entre chien et loup, between the dog and the wolf.
It was just beginning to get dark as we walked through the small garden of Palais Royal. We watched as carefully dressed children in toggled peacoats and striped woolen mittens finished the same game of improvised soccer we had seen in the Place Sainte Marthe.
Behind the Palais Royal the wide avenues around the Louvre gave way to narrow streets, small boutiques, and bistros. It started to drizzle. Gwendal turned a corner, and tucked in between two storefronts, barely wider than a set of double doors, I found myself staring down a corridor of fairy lights. A series of arches stretched into the distance, topped with panes of glass, like a greenhouse, that echoed the plip-plop of the rain. It was as if we'd stepped through the witch's wardrobe, the phantom tollbooth, what have you, into another era.
The Passage Vivienne was nineteenth-century Paris's answer to a shopping mall, a small interior street lined with boutiques and tearooms where ladies could browse at their leisure without wetting the bustles of their long dresses or the plumes of their new hats.
It was certainly a far cry from the shopping malls of my youth, with thei #Quote by Elizabeth Bard
Sunset quotes by Victor Pelevin
#139. Gazing at the faces of the horses and the people, at this boundless stream of life raised up by the power of my will and now hurtling into nowhere across the sunset-crimson steppe, I often think: where am I in this flux? GHENGIS KHAN #Quote by Victor Pelevin
Sunset quotes by Scott Wolven
#140. Love can die. It's a mysterious thing, the death of love. Sometimes it fades slowly, like a long sunset with amazing and rare color that lasts in the memory forever. Sometimes it becomes obese and dies from its own weight, the density and slowness that come with things grown too large. It is often killed on purpose, by someone who is in love with someone or something else. But the other person, the one still in love, is a loose end, snapping and cracking in the high wind of life passing them by. Life moves so fast it creates a back draft, that leaves things scattered and blowing in its wake. Life, of all things, is alive. It is everywhere and moves beyond speed. #Quote by Scott Wolven
Sunset quotes by Charisma Carpenter
#141. Today my son and I went for a stroll and saw the sea lions and watched the sunset and played ball in the park with our dog. #Quote by Charisma Carpenter
Sunset quotes by Mircea Eliade
#142. The country of the souls is underneath us, toward the sunset; the trail leads through a dim twilight. Tracks of the people who last went over it and of their dogs are visible. #Quote by Mircea Eliade
Sunset quotes by T. M. Brenner
#143. Pick a sunset, and we'll ride off into it together. #Quote by T. M. Brenner
Sunset quotes by S.S. Matthews
#144. There is nothing amiss with a little romance. In fact the romantic eye beholds its presence in all things; in a sunset, sun-shower, a child's laughter, or tears. Everywhere one looks, romance abounds. #Quote by S.S. Matthews
Sunset quotes by Aileene Mhar Jabarani
#145. While we enjoy sunrise and all touch of sunlight, the other side of the world suffers from dark times, fireballs, and mourning, like a sunset that ends the day. #Quote by Aileene Mhar Jabarani
Sunset quotes by Sara Teasdale
#146. I saw the sunset-colored sands,
The Nile like flowing fire between,
Where Rameses stares forth serene,
And Ammon's heavy temple stands.
I saw the rocks where long ago,
Above the sea that cries and breaks,
Swift Perseus with Medusa's snakes
Set free the maiden white like snow.
And many skies have covered me,
And many winds have blown me forth,
And I have loved the green, bright north,
And I have loved the cold, sweet sea.
But what to me are north and south,
And what the lure of many lands,
Since you have leaned to catch my hands
And lay a kiss upon my mouth. #Quote by Sara Teasdale
Sunset quotes by Audrey Coulthurst
#147. For the first time in my life, I finally felt free - because some things are more important than a crown.
Saving a kingdom.
Knowing your heart.
Or riding into the sunset with a girl on a red horse. #Quote by Audrey Coulthurst
Sunset quotes by Beth Johnson
#148. A statement made from the heart has an aroma, it has lights, it has earth and
sun and moon. It is colorful and it grasps the attention of those around you,
like the sunset. #Quote by Beth Johnson
Sunset quotes by Peggy Guggenheim
#149. If anything can rival Venice in its beauty, it must be its reflection at sunset in the Grand Canal. #Quote by Peggy Guggenheim
Sunset quotes by James Lee Burke
#150. I had seen a dawn like this one only twice in my life: once in Vietnam, when a Bouncing Betty had risen from the earth on a night trail and twisted its tentacles of light around my thighs, and years earlier outside of Franklin, Louisiana, when my father and I discovered the body of a labor organizer who had been crucified with sixteen-penny nails, ankle and wrist, against a barn wall. - Sunset Limited #Quote by James Lee Burke
Sunset quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#151. For a cheerful mind, sun never sets; for a cheerless mind, sun never rises! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Sunset quotes by Jorge Luis Borges
#152. Of all the streets that blur in to the sunset,
There must be one (which, I am not sure)
That I by now have walked for the last time
Without guessing it, the pawn of that Someone

Who fixes in advance omnipotent laws,
Sets up a secret and unwavering scale
for all the shadows, dreams, and forms
Woven into the texture of this life.

If there is a limit to all things and a measure
And a last time and nothing more and forgetfulness,
Who will tell us to whom in this house
We without knowing it have said farewell?

Through the dawning window night withdraws
And among the stacked books which throw
Irregular shadows on the dim table,
There must be one which I will never read.

There is in the South more than one worn gate,
With its cement urns and planted cactus,
Which is already forbidden to my entry,
Inaccessible, as in a lithograph.

There is a door you have closed forever
And some mirror is expecting you in vain;
To you the crossroads seem wide open,
Yet watching you, four-faced, is a Janus.

There is among all your memories one
Which has now been lost beyond recall.
You will not be seen going down to that fountain
Neither by white sun nor by yellow moon.

You will never recapture what the Persian
Said in his language woven with birds and roses,
When, in the sunset, before the light disperses,
#Quote by Jorge Luis Borges
Sunset quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#153. Think about it: it is easy to see God's beauty in a glorious sunset or in ocean waves crashing on a beach. But can you find the holiness in a struggle for life? #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Sunset quotes by Lisa Turner
#154. The sunset was a red slit of light like a devil's eye, hanging low and depraved over the Mississippi River bluff. #Quote by Lisa Turner
Sunset quotes by Cherie Priest
#155. Now it was growing late again, and cooler, which the nurse found disorienting. It felt as though her entire life had been lived from dusk to dawn ever since she learned of Phillip, only tiptoeing around the edges of sunset or sunrise, and sleeping or traveling all day. #Quote by Cherie Priest
Sunset quotes by Alan Ascua
#156. The dawn of a color, blooms with a rose. Telling tales, meanings of vibrant with the red of fire. Loyalty extending like the blue ocean blues. Quality like the orange sunset set with romance and friendship. In hindsight, these are meanings and colors, but the important and honest gave one to someone you love and they admire it and you. #Quote by Alan Ascua
Sunset quotes by Oscar Wilde
#157. The heart contains passion but the imagination alone contains poetry,' says Charles Baudelaire. This too was the lesson that Theophile Gautier, most subtle of all modern critics, most fascinating of all modern poets, was never tired of teaching - 'Everybody is affected by a sunrise or a sunset.' The absolute distinction of the artist is not his capacity to feel nature so much as his power of rendering it. The entire subordination of all intellectual and emotional faculties to the vital and informing poetic principle is the surest sign of the strength of our Renaissance. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Sunset quotes by Ree Drummond
#158. Marlboro Man paused, his eyes piercing through to my marrow. We'd started out watching the sunset over the ranch, sitting on the tailgate of his pickup, legs dangling playfully over the edge. By the time the sun had gone down, we were lying down, legs overlapping, as the sky turned blacker and blacker. And making out wildly. Making out, oh, so very wildly.
I didn't want to wait for him to bring it up again--the dreaded subject of Chicago. I'd avoided it like the plague for the past several days, not wanting to face the reality of my impending move, of walking away from my new love so soon after we'd found each other. But now the subject wasn't so scary; it was safe. I'd made the decision, at least for now, to stay--I just had to tell Marlboro Man. And finally, in between kisses, the words bubbled suddenly and boldly to the surface; I could no longer contain them. But before I had a chance to say them, Marlboro Man opened his mouth and began to speak.
"Oh no," he said, a pained expression on his face. "Don't tell me--you're leaving tomorrow." He ran his fingers through my hair and touched his forehead to mine.
I smiled, giggling inside at the secret I was seconds away from spilling. A herd of cows mooed in the distance. Serenading us.
"Um…no," I said, finding it hard to believe what I was about to tell him. "I'm not…I'm…I'm not going."
He paused, then pulled his face away from mine, allowing just enough distance between us for him to pull focus. "What? #Quote by Ree Drummond
Sunset quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#159. When your shadow becomes more popular than you, then you know that the sun is setting! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Sunset quotes by Philip Pullman
#160. The evening sky was awash with peach, apricot, cream: tender little ice-cream clouds in a wide orange sky. #Quote by Philip Pullman
Sunset quotes by Marty Rubin
#161. A beautiful phrase and a beautiful sunset derive from the same source. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Sunset quotes by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
#162. There are two angels that attend unseen
Each one of us, and in great books record
Our good and evil deeds. He who writes down
The good ones, after every action closes
His volume, and ascends with it to God.
The other keeps his dreadful day-book open
Till sunset, that we may repent; which doing,
The record of the action fades away,
And leaves a line of white across the page.
Now if my act be good, as I believe it,
It cannot be recalled. It is already
Sealed up in heaven, as a good deed accomplished.
The rest is yours. #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Sunset quotes by Richelle Mead
#163. No, I can just read you. Finally. I can't believe how blind I was. I can't believe I never noticed. Victor's comment ... he was right." She glanced off at the sunset, then turned her gaze back on me. A flash of anger, both in her feelings and her eyes, hit me. "Why didn't you tell me?" she cried. "Why didn't you tell me you loved Dimitri? #Quote by Richelle Mead
Sunset quotes by Deejay Kapil
#164. Sometimes it doesn't make sense- the short periods of time we get with the best moments and with people, or their outcomes from their choices.

However, if we turn it over to the golden light that flies around us.

The breathing wind of the evening promises that we will see the big picture in the hereafter with a new dawn tomorrow.
Nothing is too small to be a mistake. #Quote by Deejay Kapil
Sunset quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#165. I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply
a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day
should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to
animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing
breezes cannot be bettered. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Sunset quotes by Amber Newberry
#166. The sky grew orange and pink, a pale ghost of the full moon appeared above Salem, waiting to glow brilliant in the velvet black hiding just beyond the twilight. #Quote by Amber Newberry
Sunset quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#167. Here at St. Anthony's, they have to close the curtains before it gets dark, since if a resident sees themself reflected in a window they'll think somebody's peeping in at them. It's called "sun-downing." When all the old folks get crazy at sunset. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Sunset quotes by Fernando Pessoa
#168. The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd - The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world's existence. All these half-tones of the soul's consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are. #Quote by Fernando Pessoa
Sunset quotes by Issey Miyake
#169. Beauty is like a sunset: it goes as soon as you try to capture it. The beauty you like is precisely that which escapes you. #Quote by Issey Miyake
Sunset quotes by Joan Aiken
#170. He paused a moment, gazing in awe at the huge mass of buildings composing the castle. It stood close to the river, on either side and to the rear stretched the extensive park and gardens, filled with splendid trees, fountains and beds of brilliant flowers in shades of pink, crimson, and scarlet. The castle itself was built of pink granite, and enclosed completely a smaller, older building which the present Duke's father had considered too insignificant for his town residence. The new castle had taken forty years to build; three architects and hundreds of men had worked day and night, and the old Duke had personally selected every block of sunset-colored stone that went to its construction. 'I want it to look like a great half-open rose,' he declared to the architects, who were fired with enthusiasm by this romantic fancy. It was begun as a wedding present to the Duke's wife, whose name was Rosamond, but unfortunately she died some nine years before it was completed. 'never mind, it will do for her memorial instead,' said the grief-stricken but practical widower. The work went on. At last the final block was laid in place. The Duke, by now very old, went out in his barouche and drove slowly along the opposite riverbank to consider the effect. He paused midway for a long time, then gave his opinion. 'It looks like a cod cutlet covered in shrimp sauce,' he said, drove home, took to his bed, and died. #Quote by Joan Aiken
Sunset quotes by Herman Melville
#171. Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way? Or is it, that as in essence whiteness is not so much a color as the visible absence of color; and at the same time the concrete of all colors; is it for these reasons that there is such a dumb blankness, full of meaning, in a wide landscape of snows- a colorless, all-color of atheism from which we shrink? And when we consider that other theory of the natural philosophers, that all other earthly hues - every stately or lovely emblazoning - the sweet tinges of sunset skies and woods; yea, and the gilded velvets of butterflies, and the butterfly cheeks of young girls; all these are but subtile deceits, not actually inherent in substances, but only laid on from without; so that all deified Nature absolutely paints like the harlot, whose allurements cover nothing but the charnel-house within; and when we proceed further, and consider that the mystical cosmetic which produces every one of her hues, the great principle of light, for ever remains white or colorless in itself, and if operating without medium upon matter, would touch all objects, even tulips and roses, with its own blank tinge - pondering all this, the palsied universe lies before us a leper; and like wilful travellers in Lapland, who refuse to wear colored and coloring glasses upon their eyes, so t #Quote by Herman Melville
Sunset quotes by John Keats
#172. O that our dreamings all, of sleep or wake,
Would all their colours from the sunset take:
From something of material sublime,
Rather than shadow our own soul's day-time
In the dark void of night. For in the world
We jostle, - but my flag is not unfurl'd ... #Quote by John Keats
Sunset quotes by Boris Kodjoe
#173. I was looking to show people I could act. I was looking for something that would take me away from the whole hunk riding off into the sunset thing that people wanted me to play after Brown Sugar. #Quote by Boris Kodjoe
Sunset quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#174. Deep down, all the while, she was waiting for something to happen. Like a sailor in distress, she kept casting desperate glances over the solitary waster of her life, seeking some white sail in the distant mists of the horizon. She had no idea by what wind it would reach her, toward what shore it would bear her, or what kind of craft it would be – tiny boat or towering vessel, laden with heartbreaks or filled to the gunwhales with rapture. But every morning when she awoke she hoped that today would be the day; she listened for every sound, gave sudden starts, was surprised when nothing happened; and then, sadder with each succeeding sunset, she longed for tomorrow. #Quote by Gustave Flaubert
Sunset quotes by Albert Camus
#175. Truth, like light is dazzling. By contrast, untruth is a beautiful sunset that enhances everything. #Quote by Albert Camus
Sunset quotes by John Flanagan
#176. The three first-year apprentices watched in awe as the two marksmen slammed arrow after arrow into the almost invisible targets. "Anytime before sunset would be fine," Will drawled. #Quote by John Flanagan
Sunset quotes by Andy Grove
#177. Just as we could have rode into the sunset, along came the Internet, and it tripled the significance of the PC. #Quote by Andy Grove
Sunset quotes by Alex Trebek
#178. I don't gamble, because winning a hundred dollars doesn't give me great pleasure. But losing a hundred dollars pisses me off. #Quote by Alex Trebek
Sunset quotes by Jane Hamilton
#179. The last rain had come at the beginning of April and now, at the first of June, all but the hardiest mosquitoes had left their papery skins in the grass. It was already seven o'clock in the morning, long past time to close windows and doors, trap what was left of the night air slightly cooler only by virtue of the dark. The dust on the gravel had just enough energy to drift a short distance and then collapse on the flower beds. The sun had a white cast, as if shade and shadow, any flicker of nuance, had been burned out by its own fierce center. There would be no late afternoon gold, no pale early morning yellow, no flaming orange at sunset. If the plants had vocal cords they would sing their holy dirges like slaves. #Quote by Jane Hamilton
Sunset quotes by Shana Abe
#180. Bundled in my shawl and uniform, I might have been partaking in any one of Mrs. Westcliffe's permitted after-supper al fresco activities, like:
Strolling to the edge of the rose garden to admire the sunset.
Strolling to the edge of the orchard to admire the sunset.
Strolling to the edge of the bridge to admire the sunset.
At England's foremost educational opportunity for young women, strolling to the brink of things was allowed. Leaving the green-plunging beyond brinks-was not. #Quote by Shana Abe
Sunset quotes by Stephen Colbert
#181. Women don't want all that. Women just want a partner who is considerate and attentive, who will spoon with them while reciting Keats, and feed them organic yogurt by candlelight on a seaside cliff at sunset. #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Sunset quotes by Ali Shaw
#182. The sunset like a blacksmith, was beating the sky into glowing red blades. #Quote by Ali Shaw
Sunset quotes by Peter Watts
#183. You can't turn a sunset into a string of grunts without losing something. #Quote by Peter Watts
Sunset quotes by Stephen Spender
#184. Under the olive trees, from the ground Grows this flower, which is a wound. It is easier to ignore Than the heroes' sunset fire Of death plunged in their willed desire Raging with flags on the world's shore. #Quote by Stephen Spender
Sunset quotes by Daniel Quinn
#185. It's the idea that people living close to nature tend to be noble. It's seeing all those sunsets that does it. You can't watch a sunset and then go off and set fire to your neighbor's tepee. Living close to nature is wonderful for your mental health. #Quote by Daniel Quinn
Sunset quotes by Michael Connelly
#186. The Strip was still lit by a million neon lights, though the crowds on the sidewalk had greatly decreased by this hour. Still, Bosch was awed by the spectacle of light. In every imaginable color and configuration, it was a megawatt funnel of enticement to greed that burned twenty-four hours a day. Bosch felt the same attraction that all the other grinders felt tug at them. Las Vegas was like one of the hookers on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Even happily married men at least glanced their way, if only for a second, just to get an idea what was out there, maybe give them something to think about. Las Vegas was like that. There was a visceral attraction here. The bold promise of money and sex. But the first was a broken promise, a mirage, and the second was fraught with danger, expense, physical and mental risk. It was where the real gambling took place in this town. #Quote by Michael Connelly
Sunset quotes by Faraaz Kazi
#187. The flush on her pale cheeks was like the blush of sunset on snow. #Quote by Faraaz Kazi
Sunset quotes by Virginia Alison
#188. A time when sky blue love bids farewell to the day and before dusk falls, the sunset ignites the smouldering embers of the moonlit soul... #Quote by Virginia Alison
Sunset quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#189. A hopeful, bright beginning, and a bloody, red sunset. Just like every day. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Sunset quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#190. The long, green, seaward-looking glen was filled with
dusk, and beyond it were meadows of sunset. The harbour was radiant, purple here, azure there, opal elsewhere. The maple grove was beginning to be misty green. Rilla looked about her with wistful eyes. Who said that spring was the joy of the year? It was the heart-break of the year. And the pale-purply mornings and the daffodil stars and the wind in the old pine were so many separate pangs of the heart-break. Would life ever be free from dread again? #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Sunset quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#191. You shall have your sunset. I shall command it. But I shall wait, according to my science of government, until conditions are favorable. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Sunset quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#192. The faint laughter of winds was always about them and the colors of Mistawis, imperial and spiritual, under the changing clouds, were something that cannot be expressed in mere words. Shadows, too. Clustering in the pines until a wind shook them out and pursued them over Mistawis. They lay all day along the shores, threaded by ferns and wild blossoms. They stole around the headlands in the glow of the sunset, until twilight wove them all into one great web of dusk. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Sunset quotes by Richard Adams
#193. Rain before sunset and we'll be in shelter. #Quote by Richard Adams
Sunset quotes by Galina Krasskova
#194. Rite To Tyr:

Hail to the One-Handed God!
Hail to Him whose name is Honor
And whose Word is iron,
Who alone never shirks the thankless task
Whose reason is Lawful Necessity.
Hail to the Lord of Swords,
Who gave a weapon-bearing hand
To see that what must be done was done in truth.
Hail God of the sunset, last single ray of light,
Lord of loyal morality, whose name none takes in vain.
Now must I face loss to do what is right,
O Lord Tyr, and I do not ask for your aid
To take away that loss, that I might hope for ease of action.
As you stood forth knowing you must lose to win,
So I ask only that you keep my back straight,
My arm strong, my hand from trembling,
My voice from faltering, my words from vanishing,
My head up, and my resolve unyielding
As I reach into the challenging maw of my own future. #Quote by Galina Krasskova
Sunset quotes by Crystal Woods
#195. A sunset is the sun's fiery kiss to the night. #Quote by Crystal Woods
Sunset quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#196. It is a valuable lesson that should often be reinforced - that many who are faced with impending death, a disease that will likely take them in a year's time, for example, quite often insist that their affliction is the best thing that ever happened to them. It takes the immediacy of mortality to remind them to watch the sunrise and the sunset, to note the solitary flower among the rocks, to appreciate those loved ones around them, to taste their food, and revel in the feel of a cool breeze. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Sunset quotes by Cindy Nord
#197. Look. I know this type of woman. I grew up surrounded by a passel of them just like her. My mother. My sister. Surely you realize she'll expect more than you're willing to give. She's all about babies and doilies and serving up little tea cakes. Letting you have your way with her and then watching you ride off into the sunset ain't part of her plan. #Quote by Cindy Nord
Sunset quotes by George Stillman Hillard
#198. Sunsets in themselves are generally superior to sunrises; but with the sunset we appreciate images drawn from departed peace and faded glory. #Quote by George Stillman Hillard
Sunset quotes by Anatole Broyard
#199. A bookcase is as good as a view, as much of a panorama as the sight of a city or a river. There are dawns and sunsets in books - storms and zephyrs. #Quote by Anatole Broyard
Sunset quotes by Peter Noone
#200. There's an element of tongue-in-cheek in every one of our songs. Walking off into the sunset, holding hands, and being married forever was not exactly a brand new idea. #Quote by Peter Noone
