Why do we love sunset quotes? If I were to choose one time of the day to get out of the house; it would be on sunsets; during the time that the day is about to end and the night is about to come. Because sunsets are beautiful, the sky and the world is painted gorgeously. And every time I see sunsets, even from the same spot, they are unique; the colors and shades are different and the clouds are in different positions. It will make you realize that every day is indeed not the same; yesterday might be prettier than today but we won’t know what is for tomorrow. It’s like life, the past may be better than the present, but we don’t know what the future beholds.

Sunsets give us inspiration or realizations in life. It is a common muse for artists; be it those who paint pictures, or those who take photos. Those who write books or poems, write lyrics for a song, or those with just simple thoughts. There are topics praising the beauty of the sunset, there are ones that give us hope, some equate it to sadness or to a journey about love.
