The morning wind spreads its fresh smell.
We must get up and take that in,
that wind that lets us live.
Breathe, before it’s gone.
— Rumi

“When you are in doubt, be still, and wait; when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.  So long as mists envelop you, be still;be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists as it surely will.  Then act with courage.”    -Ponca Chief White Eagle

Each morning, I breathe in the whole world again like it’s the very first time and remember that all the words we use about being alive are not the same as life itself. — First Time ©2014 Brian Andreas

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning. — JB Priestley

Hello, sun in my face.

Hello, you who made the morning

and spread it over the fields

and into the faces of the tulips

and the nodding morning glories,

and into the windows of, even, the

miserable and the crotchety –

best preacher that ever was,

dear star, that just happens

to be where you are in the universe

to keep us from ever-darkness,

to ease us with warm touching,

to hold us in the great hands of light –

good morning, good morning, good morning.

Watch, now, how I start the day

in happiness, in kindness.

— "Why I Wake Early", by Mary Oliver
Do not say, “It is morning,” and dismiss it with a name of yesterday.
See it for the first time as a newborn child that has no name.
— Rabindranath Tagore
