Sunrise Quote with Morning Sunrise from Padre Island 78418

Padre Island Sunrise Victoria Munt Rogers gulfscapes

“And yet day and night meet fleetingly at twilight and dawn,” he said, lowering his voice again and narrowing his eyes and moving his head a quarter of an inch closer to hers. “And their merging sometimes affords the beholder the most enchanted moments of all the twenty four hours. A sunrise or sunset can be ablaze with brilliance and arouse all the passion, all the yearning, in the soul of the beholder.”

― Mary Balogh, A Summer to Remember
