For many of us, sunset is almost like a religious moment - a sacred natural experience that repeats itself every day.

Sunsets are instants of intimate and private contemplation. It's a time when we look at each other without mirrors.

A sunset tells us what we are and where we should head to. It's a spiritual guide powered by Mother Nature and one that we should never neglect.

Dusk teaches us to be a better person and choose happiness over wealth, careers, resentment, and lies.

Sunsets are also intimately connected with love, life, God, friendship, family, the beach, and the ocean.

Sunset is one of the most photographed natural events in the world.

The golden hour can be simultaneously shared with the ones we love and care about and lived as a very personal and spiritual occasion.

Take a look at some of the most poetic, romantic, motivational, and inspiring quotes about the sunset that have ever been written.
