Night Quotes

The summer night is like a perfection of thought.

Wallace Stevens

In winter I get up at night And dress by yellow candle-light.In summer quite the other way I have to go to bed by day.

Robert Louis Stevenson

If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance.

Bern Williams

Henry Ward Beecher

How pleasant is Saturday night, When I have tried all the week to be good, And not spoke a word that was bad, And obliged everyone that I could.

The good talk that is inseparable from a wine dinner is even more important than the wines that are being served. Never bring up your better bottles if you are entertaining a man who cannot talk. Keep your treasures for a night when those few who are nearest to your heart can gather round your table, free from care, with latchkeys in their pockets and no last train to catch.

Maurice Healy

Last night, ah, yesternight, betwixt her lips and mine There fell thy shadow, Cynara! thy breath was shed Upon my soul between the kisses and the wine; And I was desolate and sick of an old passion, Yea, I was desolate and bowed my head: I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.

Ernest Dowson

The night has a thousand eyes,And the day but one;Yet the light of the bright world dies With the dying sun. The mind has a thousand eyes,And the heart but one:Yet the light of a whole life dies When love is done.

Francis William Bourdillon

I hate it when my foot falls asleep during the day 'cause that means it's gonna be up all night.
