Beauty, Grins and 'Deep' Thoughts

 In the dawn, armed with a burning patience, we shall enter the splendid cities.
~ Arthur Rimbaud

Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted, and by degrees the forms and colours of things are restored to them, and we watch the dawn remaking the world in its antique pattern.
~ Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Come quickly. You mustn’t miss the dawn. It will never be just like this again.
~ Georgia O'Keeffe

I still remember the day my father took me to the Cemetery of Forgotten Books for the first time. It was the early summer of 1945, and we walked through the streets of a Barcelona trapped beneath ashen skies as dawn poured over Rambla de Santa Monica in a wreath of liquid copper.
~ Carlos Ruiz Zaf√≥n, The Shadow of the Wind
