Morning is the period of time between dawn and noon. Morning precedes afternoon, evening, and night in the sequence of a day. Originally, the term referred to sunrise.
Famous quotes containing the word morning:
“Christina Bailey: I was just thinking how much you can tell about a person from such simple things. Your car, for instance.
Mike Hammer: Now what kind of message does it send you?
Christina: You have only one real, lasting love.
Mike: Now who could that be?
Christina: You. Youre one of those self-indulgent males who thinks about nothing but his clothes, his car, himself. Ill bet you do push-ups every morning just to keep your belly hard.”
—A.I. (Albert Isaac)
“Kelly: I washed my face clean the morning I woke up in your bedroom.
Griff: You got morals in my bedroom?
Kelly: You had nothing to do with it. Nothing! It was your mirror.
Griff: You must have taken a long look.
Kelly: It was the longest look of my life. I saw a broken-down piece of machinery. Nothing but the buck, the bed, and the bottle for the rest of my life.”
—Samuel Fuller (b. 1911)
“I also heard the whooping of the ice in the pond, my great bed-fellow in that part of Concord, as if it were restless in its bed and would fain turn over, were troubled with flatulency and bad dreams; or I was waked by the cracking of the ground by the frost, as if some one had driven a team against my door, and in the morning would find a crack in the earth a quarter of a mile long and a third of an inch wide.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
