Evening Quotes

The difference between listening to a radio sermon and going to church...is almost like the difference between calling your girl on the phone and spending an evening with her.

Dwight L. Moody

The man who says his evening prayer is a captain posting his sentinels. He can sleep.

Charles Baudelaire

Every evening I turn my worries over to God. He's going to be up all night anyway

Mary C. Crowley

As we watch the sun go down, evening after evening, through the smog across the poisoned watchers of our native earth, we must ask ourselves seriously whether we really wish some future universal historian on another planet to say about us: "With all their genius and with all their skill, they ran out of foresight and air and food and water and ideas," or, "They went on playing politics until their world collapsed around them."

U Thant

Our sins, like to our shadows, when our day was in its glory, scarce appeared; toward our evening, how great and monstrous!

Sir John Suckling

Out into the cool of the evening strolls the pretender. He knows that all his hopes and dreams begin and end there.

Clyde Jackson Browne

It is light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates. It is light I "listen" to. The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of evening. After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light, the air begins to still, and a quiet descends. I see magic in the quiet light of dusk. I feel quiet, yet intense energy in the natural elements of our habitat. A sense of magic prevails. A sense of mystery. It is a time for contemplation, for listening - a time for making photographs.

John Sexton

May you have warm words on a cool evening, a full moon on a dark night, and a smooth road all the way to your door.

That loss is common would not make My own less bitter, rather more: Too common! Never morning wore To evening, but some heart did break.

Lord Alfred Tennyson

Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.

Mahatma Gandhi

I sing the sweets I know, the charms I feel, My morning incense. and my evening meal, The sweets of Hasty-Pudding.

I don't know why people like the home run so much. A home run is over as soon as it starts.... The triple is the most exciting play of the game. A triple is like meeting a woman who excites you, spending the evening talking and getting more excited, then taking her home. It drags on and on. You're never sure how it's going to turn out

George Foster

We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let our dreams die, but others nourish and protect them, nurse them through bad days till they bring them to sunshine and light

Woodrow T. Wilson

Truth is tough. It will not break, like a bubble, at the touch, nay, you may kick it about all day like a football, and it will be round and full at evening.

Oliver Wendell Holmes Junior

Come in the evening, or come in the morning, Come when you're looked for, or come without warning.

Silence on a hill where the path ended and then the forest below moving in one long whisper as evening touched the leaves.

A perfectly healthy sentence, it is true, is extremely rare. For the most part we miss the hue and fragrance of the thought; as if we could be satisfied with the dews of the morning or evening without their colors, or the heavens without their azure.

Henry David Thoreau

Sweet the coming on / Of grateful evening mild; then silent night / With this her solemn bird and this fair moon, / And these the gems of heaven, her starry train.

Each morning sees some task begin, Each evening sees it close; Something attempted, something done, Has earned a night's repose.
