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

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

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.

Lauren Willig, The Garden Intrigue

Moss Hart

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

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

“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”
