The days when I wake up at sunrise are the most beautiful ones for me. It feels as if I have achieved a big feat just by waking up early. On such days, I go out and look at the sun when it’s not shining too bright and stare at it.

The whole world ceases to exist and there are just two of us looking at each other. That moment transports me into another realm. It’s like stealthily meeting a lover and having a moment that nobody can intervene in. We look into each other’s eyes and I am engulfed in warmth and light.


Every sunrise and sunset that we witness is one that’s not going to happen again. The same place, the same time, the company, the emotions, thoughts, nothing is ever the same. I was born under the sun sign and had always been attracted to the sun but there was a young woman who introduced me to the magic of watching the sunrise on the horizon.

I met her during a solo trip. She taught me sun salutations. Since then I have been in love with the sun and the magic it creates.

Here, we’ve put together the best quotes and captions about sun, sunshine, sunrise, and sunset that can create magic on Instagram for you.

H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Sunset Quotes and Captions​

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

Rabindranath Tagore (Stray Birds)

“And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be better. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love.”

“Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel I remember wondering to be always together yet forever apart?”

Nicholas Sparks

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

Jo Walton

“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right-hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.”

Carl R. Rogers (A Way of Being)

“Night falls. Or has fallen. Why is it that night falls, instead of rising, like the dawn? Yet if you look east, at sunset, you can see night rising, not falling; darkness lifting into the sky, up from the horizon, like a black sun behind cloud cover. Like smoke from an unseen fire, a line of fire just below the horizon, brushfire or a burning city. Maybe night falls because it’s heavy, a thick curtain pulled up over the eyes. Wool blanket.”

Margaret Atwood (The Handmaid’s Tale (The Handmaid’s Tale, #1))

I am drinking this sunset, this evening.

and you.”
