  • Reading time:32 mins read

What comes to mind when you watch a spectacular sunset? Maybe romantic feelings, a deep-felt love for life or maybe a connection to the universe? Everybody experiences a sunset differently. Personally, I can’t think of anything more beautiful, awe-inspiring or breathtaking than a sunset. I have also not experienced anything more peaceful than relaxing in the tranquil beauty of the setting sun. I find it incredible that every day ends with a completely unique sunset, no two are ever the same. Think about that for a moment, out of all the sunsets that have occurred over the last 13 billion or so years, they are all different!

Contrary to a sunrise that represents rebirth, renewal and awakening, a sunset symbolizes a promise of a new beginning. They remind us of endings and transformation. That change is an integral part of life and that everything has an ending. It forces you to reflect upon what you have accomplished during the day and the dreams, goals and aspirations you have set for tomorrow. The sunset brings a sense of peace that everything will be ok. You will always have tomorrow to try again.

While no words, photos or videos can truly capture the beauty of watching a glorious sunset in person, the collection of sunset quotes below does an excellent job of describing just how inspiring and life-changing they can be.
