“Sunset is so marvelous that even the sun itself watches it every day in the reflections of the infinite oceans!”

Mehmet Murat Ildan 

I see the sunset from the same place everyday, sitting by my window. While the sun slowly fades away and gives way to the night, it also gives me a chance to quietly reflect on my day. The fiery hues take my breath away, as if time has come to a standstill.

Signalling an end to the day, sunsets are a way of telling our hearts to rejuvenate ourselves. I see the sunset everyday and have never ever got tired of watching the beautiful orange red hues.

While enjoying the beauty, I have also taken some pictures on my iPhone XS, without any filters. I believe they tell an incredible story accompanied by some quotes that I love.

“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 large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going.”

John Steinback

“The water was glassy and calm, still candy-colored in the afterglow of sunset.”

Stephen King

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.”

Jo Walton

“It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.”

Bernard Williams

“The strange thing about the sunset is that we actually don’t want the sun to set, we want it to stay right on the horizon, not below it, not above it, just right on it.”

Mehmet Murat Ildan

“Sunsets are proof that no matter what happens, every day can end beautifully.”

Kristen Butler

“The first stab of love is like a sunset, a blaze of color—oranges, pearly pinks, vibrant purples…”

Anna Godbersen

“Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting under.”

C. Joybell C.

“A sunset is the sun’s fiery kiss to the night

Crystal Woods

“When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator.”


“When the sun has set, no candle can replace it.”

George R.R. Martin

So take some time to stop and reflect on your day and enjoy the glorious sunsets which nature paints for us everyday!
