Emily Brontë
“A person who has not done one half his day's work by ten o'clock, runs a chance of leaving the other half undone.”
Emily Bronte, Wuthering Heights

Lemony Snicket
“Morning is an important time of day, because how you spend your morning can often tell you what kind of day you are going to have. For instance, if you wake up to the sound of twittering birds, and find yourself in an enormous canopy bed, with a butler standing next to you holding a breakfast of freshly made muffins and hand-squeezed orange juice on a silver tray, you will know that your day will be a splendid one. If you wake up to the sound of church bells, and find yourself in a fairly big regular bed, with a butler standing next to you holding a breakfast of hot tea and toast on a plate, you will know that your day will be O.K. And if you wake up to the sound of somebody banging two metal pots together, and find yourself in a small bunk bed, with a nasty foreman standing in the doorway holding no breakfast at all, you will know that your day will be horrid.”
Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

John Steinbeck
“There are as many worlds as there are kinds of days, and as an opal changes its colors and its fire to match the nature of a day, so do I.”

Stephen Fry

Mary Oliver
“A Thousand Mornings

All night my heart makes its way
however it can over the rough ground
of uncertainties, but only until night
meets and then is overwhelmed by
morning, the light deepening, the
wind easing and just waiting, as I
too wait (and when have I ever been
disappointed?) for redbird to sing”
Mary Oliver, A Thousand Mornings: Poems

Lauren Willig
“There is, I have heard, a little thing called sunrise, in which the sun reverses the process we all viewed the night before. You might assume such a thing as mythical as those beasts that guard the corners of the earth, but I have it on the finest authority, and have, indeed, from time to time, regarded it with my own eyes.”
Lauren Willig, The Garden Intrigue

Kevin Hearne
“I yawned and stretched luxuriously in the morning. I make noises when I stretch because it feels ten times better than stretching silently.”

Dave Matthes, Sleepeth Not, the Bastard

Moss Hart

Moss Hart

Terry Pratchett
“Moist groaned. It was the crack of seven and he was allergic to the concept of two seven o'clocks in one day.”
Terry Pratchett, Raising Steam

Michael Marshall Smith
“I once met a woman who'd been in therapy... and it seemed like the big thing she'd learned was to ignore everything she thought in the first hour of the day. That's when the negative stuff will try to bring you down, she said, and she was right about that but not much else. You come back from the night with your head and your soul empty, and bad things try to fill you up. There's a lot to get exercised about, if you let it. But if you've got a task, something to fill your head and move your limbs, by the time you've finished it the day has begun ands you're onto the next thing. You're over the hump, like I said.”
Michael Marshall Smith

Jagdish Joghee
“Every day, I want to sleep in your arms and wake up by your side in the mornings.”
Jagdish Joghee, A Stranger by the Stream: Most Times We Find Love. Sometimes, Love Finds You.

Michael Bassey Johnson
“In your darkest hour, give thanks, for in due time, the morning will come.
And it will come with a ray of sunshine.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Song of a Nature Lover

Andrew Masterson
“I left the warehouse at 8.00am. I don't believe in 8.00am. It exists, though. 8.00am is incontrovertible evidence that evil dwells in the world.”
Andrew Masterson, The Last Days: The Apocryphon Of Joe Panther

Virginia Woolf
“The dawn, even when it is cold and melancholy, never fails to shoot through my limbs as with arrows of sparkling piercing ice. I pull aside the thick curtains, and search for the first glow in the sky which shows that life is breaking through. And with my cheek leant upon the window pane I like to fancy that I am pressing as closely as can be upon the massy wall of time, which is for ever lifting and pulling and letting fresh spaces of life in upon us. May it be mine to taste the moment before it has spread itself over the rest of the world!”
Virginia Woolf, The Complete Shorter Fiction of Virginia Woolf

Shawn  Wells
“By waking up 30 minutes earlier than usual, you can transform and energize your morning and your life.”
Shawn Wells, The Energy Formula: Six life changing ingredients to unleash your limitless potential

Jean Fischer
“When you arise in the morning, do you throw open the window and look out at the world? Do you observe the same old things, or do you notice subtle changes, like buds opening on flowers, the scent of lilacs on the breeze, or the new song of a distant bird? This is the day the Lord has made! Rejoice in His bountiful, beautiful gift.

That they may know from the rising of the sun to its setting that there is none besides Me. I am the Lord, and there is no other.
~Isaiah 45:6”
Jean Fischer, A Charles Dickens Devotional

Mariana Zapata
“There were individuals who were morning people and could wake up after a couple hours rest and be happy to be alive.

Then there were people like me. I had to get up early so I did it, but that was only after I lay in bed for approximately seven minutes, and then followed that up by sitting on the edge of my bed and staring absently forward for at least another five. Then, if it was a good day, I wouldn’t say anything for another two hours because my morning routine kept me away from humanity.”
Mariana Zapata, Kulti

Rodman Philbrick
“Things never look better in the morning. How could they, when nothing ever changes?”
Rodman Philbrick, The Last Book in the Universe

Mehmet Murat ildan
“Yes, you have to get up early in the morning because the energy of the morning sun is like a match fire that resurrects a dead candle!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Mehmet Murat ildan
“You can wake up to a different morning every morning or to the same morning! The morning is shaped by your mind; life is shaped by your mind! It is your mind that will shape the morning, noon and evening! You are the one who created the same day and the different day!”
Mehmet Murat ildan
