…with sunset. – Henry Longfellow
“The sunrise is Gods greeting – the sunset his signature”.
“Peace…is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank”.
“Clouds come floating into my life,
no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
but to add color to my sunset sky”.
– Rabindranath Tagore
“Sunset is a global phenomenon
with a long history”.
Nature is painting for us…day after day…
pictures of infinite beauty”.
– John Ruskin
“Sunsets are so beautiful that they almost seems
as if we were looking through the gates of Heaven”.
– John Lubbock
“Living is strife and torment,
disappointment and love and sacrifice,
golden sunsets and storms”.
– Laurence Oliver
the universe is getting up its hopes
for a better tomorrow on earth”.

Wonderful quotes and photos. Loved that you used Rabindranath Tagore – I see him referenced so infrequently. One of my favorite poetry books is “The Gardener”. What a great way to “soften” the day!
Thanks. I love that passage so I looked for a picture to match…
You knew I would LOVE this one! Beautiful!!
Thanks so much..I hoped you’d like it 🙂
This was gorgeous Tiny! A sunset is the most beautiful poetry to the soul. I love your words. Sharon
Thanks Sharon! I love sunsets, they have a special way of speaking to me, and I hope to most people.
The upper one I like most. Almost unnatural atmosphere.
Thanks! I love that too. And I remember the air was “special” that evening.
Stunning! How awesome an artist is our Lord!
my favorite is “sunset is a global phenomenon with a long history” – tiny
it makes me think of how old this earth and how many billions of sunsets there have been.
also i like “At sunset Nature is painting for us…day after day…pictures of infinite beauty”.- John Ruskin
this reminds me that there is never a time without a sunset
Thanks Jacqueline. Take care and enjoy the sunsets!
Hmmm. I am feeling warm and mellow. Beautiful photos and wonderful quotes!

“The sunrise is Gods greeting – the sunset his signature” I really love this, too bad the author’s unknown. Beautiful collection 🙂
Thanks. I’m happy you liked my little “collection”.
Thanks a lot – sunsets are simply wonderful!
I think Tiny’s quote is best 🙂
Glorious pictures, and wonderful words…I loved the wryness of “sunset is a global phenomenon with a long history’
