'But, R-e-m-o-r-s-e! The water-wagon is the place for me; It is no time for mirth and laughter, The cold, gray dawn of the morning after!

A Quote by Evelyn Arthur St. John Waugh on dawn, food, planning, and thinking

He lay back for a little in his bed thinking about the smells of food . . . of the intoxicating breath of bakeries and dullness of buns. . . . He planned dinners, of enchanting aromatic foods . . . endless dinners, in which one could alternate flavour with flavour from sunset to dawn without satiety, while one breathed great draughts of the bouquet of old brandy.

ON THE SANDS OF HESITATION, LAY THE BONES OF COUNTLESS MILLIONS. WHO AT THE DAWN OF VICTORY Sat down to wait, And waiting-died!

A Quote by Emily Dickinson on dawn, discovery, and doors

Not knowing when the dawn will come
   I open every door;
Or has it feathers like a bird,
   Or billows like a shore?

A Quote by Elaine Christensen on birds, dawn, and emptiness

LEAVE-TAKING Leave-taking is not birds gathered for one last hymn to summer on thin branches of an empty tree, nor grass, sodden and bent beneath winter's first rain-heavy snow. Leave-taking is not the sun reluctant to smile in a lowering sky, nor the moon taking leave of the stars at dawn one by one. Leave-taking is not the wind suddenly hushed in the rocking cradle of trees, nor the waves stunned and dazed, staring glassy-eyed after the parting storm. Leave-taking is not birds, grass, sun, moon, wind or waves; for these will all come again. Will you?

Elaine Christensen (1948 -)

A Quote by Edgar Allan Poe on dawn, gold, good, heart, heaven, joy, life, love, mountains, mystery, rest, and sorrow

From childhood's hour I have not been As others were; I have not seen As others saw; I could not bring My passions from a common spring. From the same source I have not taken My sorrow; I could not awaken My heart to joy at the same tone; And all I loved, I loved alone. Then- in my childhood, in the dawn Of a most stormy life- was drawn From every depth of good and ill The mystery which binds me still: From the torrent, or the fountain, From the red cliff of the mountain, From the sun that round me rolled In its autumn tint of gold, From the lightning in the sky As it passed me flying by, From the thunder and the storm, And the cloud that took the form (When the rest of Heaven was blue) Of a demon in my view.

Though force can protect in emergency, only justice, fairness, consideration and cooperation can finally lead men to the dawn of eternal peace.

A Quote by Dr. William Clyde de Vane on danger, dawn, day, gifts, greatness, history, and time

Some things have not changed since the dawn of history, and bid fair to last out time itself. One of these things is the capacity for greatness in man-his capacity for being often the master of the event -and sometimes even more-the changer of the course of history itself. This capacity for greatness is a very precious gift, and we are under a danger in our day of stifling it.

Dr. William Clyde de Vane
