Clothing the palpable and familiar
  With golden exhalations of the dawn.
      - Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller,
        The Death of Wallenstein (act V, sc. 1),
        (Coleridge's translation)

Do not shorten the morning by getting up late; look upon it as the quintessence of life, as to a certain extent sacred.
      - Arthur Schopenhauer

What various scenes, and O! what scenes of Woe,
  Are witness'd by that red and struggling beam!
    The fever'd patient, from his pallet low,
      Through crowded hospitals beholds it stream;
        The ruined maiden trembles at its gleam,
          The debtor wakes to thought of gyve and jail,
            The love-lorn wretch starts from tormenting dream;
              The wakeful mother, by the glimmering pale,
                Trims her sick infant's couch, and soothes his feeble wail.
      - Sir Walter Scott

But with the morning cool reflection came.
      - Sir Walter Scott,
        Highland Widow--Introductory (ch. IV)

But with the morning cool repentance came.
      - Sir Walter Scott, Rob Roy (ch. XII)

For night's swift dragons cut the clouds full fast, and yonder shines Aurora's harbinger; at whose approach ghosts, wandering here and there, troop home to churchyards.
      - William Shakespeare

Jocund day stands tiptoe on the misty mountain-top.
      - William Shakespeare

The cock, that is the trumpet to the morn, doth with his lofty and shrill-sounding throat wake the god of day.
      - William Shakespeare

The eye of day hath oiled its lids.
      - William Shakespeare

Yon gray lines that fret the clouds are messengers of day.
      - William Shakespeare

But look, the morn in russet mantle clad
  Walks o'er the dew of yon high eastward hill.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Horatio at I, i)

The day begins to break and night is fled,
  Whose pitchy mantle overveiled the earth.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part I
         (Bedford at II, ii)

See how the morning opes her golden gates
  And takes her farewell of the glorious sun.
    How well resembles it the prime of youth
      Trimmed like a younker prancing to his love.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Richard, Duke of Gloucester at II, i)

Madam, an hour before the worshipped sun
  Peered forth the golden window of the East,
    A troubled mind drave me to walk abroad;
      Where, underneath the grove of sycamore
        That westward rooteth from this city side,
          So early walking did I see your son.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Benvolio at I, i)

The grey-eyed morn smiles on the frowning night,
  Check'ring the Eastern clouds with streaks of light;
    And flecked darkness like a drunkard reels
      From forth day's path and Titan's fiery wheels.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Friar Laurence at II, iii)

Night's candles are burnt out, and jocund day
  Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain-tops.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Romeo at III, v)

O Cressida, but that the busy day,
  Waked by the lark, hath roused the ribald crows,
    And dreaming night will hide our joys no longer,
      I would not from thee.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The History of Troilus and Cressida
         (Troilus at IV, ii)

As when the golden sun salutes the morn,
  And having gilt the ocean with his beams,
    Gallops the zodiac in his glistering coach
      And overlooks the highest-peering hills,
        So Tamora.
      - William Shakespeare, Titus Andronicus
         (Aaron at II, i)

Darkness is fled. Now flowers unfold their beauties to the sun, and blushing kiss the beam he sends to wake them.
      - Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Hail, gentle Dawn! mild blushing goddess, hail!
  Rejoic'd I see thy purple mantle spread
    O'er half the skies, gems pave thy radiant way,
      And orient pearls from ev'ry shrub depend.
      - William C. Somerville, The Chase
         (bk. II, l. 79)

The morrow, fair with purple beams, dispersed the shadows of the misty night.
      - Herbert Spencer

Bright as does the morning star appear,
  Out of the east with flaming locks bedight,
    To tell the dawning day is drawing near.
      - Edmund Spenser

Now the frosty stars are gone:
  I have watched them one by one,
    Fading on the shores of Dawn.
      Round and full the glorious sun
        Walks with level step the spray,
          Through his vestibule of Day.
      - Bayard Taylor, Ariel in the Cloven Pine

And yonder fly his scattered golden arrows,
  And smite the hills with day.
      - Bayard Taylor,
        The Poet's Journal--Third Evening--Morning

Let your sleep be necessary and healthful, not idle and expensive of time, beyond the needs and conveniences of nature; and sometimes be curious to see the preparation which the sun makes when he is coming forth from his chambers of the east.
      - Jeremy Taylor
