“Sunsets are so beautiful that they almost seem as if we were looking through the gates of Heaven.”
John Lubbock

“Loneliness adds beauty to life. It puts a special burn on sunsets and makes night air smell better.”
Henry Rollins

“If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God.”
G. K. Chesterton

“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.”
Adriaan Kortlandt

“How strange this fear of death is! We are never frightened at a sunset.”
George MacDonald
May these sunsets paint your day with calm optimism. We made it through another week. Let us rest & recreate. Easter resurrection, Passover liberation, and daffodil silliness await us!
Aloha, Friends, Cloudia

The most interesting sunsets I ever witnessed were also the most Key West the crowd that gathers on the pier at the very south end of the island breaks out in applause. I never got that until the first time I realized what a small event the sunset is in the grander scheme of the cosmos.

It is after all the little things that make a large life.
