Busy old fool, unruly sun,
Why dost thou thus,
Through windows, and through curtains call on us?
John Donne, The Sun Rising

When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.
Tecumseh

In the early morning on the lake sitting in the stern of the boat with his father rowing, he felt quite sure that he would never die.
Ernest Hemingway, In Our Time

When I woke up this morning my girlfriend asked me, 'Did you sleep good?' I said 'No, I made a few mistakes.'
Steven Wright

Ma mere l'oye - Maurice Ravel, Gisella Pasino, Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra & Hanns-Martin S

Tecumseh has hit the nail on its head, John!

Doesn't mean that the other quotes and the music link aren't good. It's on the contrary however, but the one of Tecumseh has struck me in particular.

Excellent and striking post. S+F instantly.
Thanks for sharing this beauty, 👍 !
