When the Sun
  Clearest shineth
    Serenest in the heaven,
      Quickly are obscured
        All over the earth
          Other stars.
      - Alfred, the Great, Consolation,
        (translation of Boethius)

The sun, which passeth through pollutions and itself remains as pure as before.
      - Francis Bacon, Advancement of Learning
         (bk. II)

The sun, God's crest upon His azure shield, the heavens.
      - Philip James Bailey

See the sun!
  God's crest upon His azure shield, the Heavens.
      - Philip James Bailey, Festus
         (sc. A Mountain)

The sun, centre and sire of light,
  The keystone of the world-built arch of heaven.
      - Philip James Bailey, Festus (sc. Heaven)

See the gold sunshine patching,
  And streaming and streaking across
    The gray-green oaks; and catching,
      By its soft brown beard, the moss.
      - Philip James Bailey, Festus
         (sc. The Surface, l. 409)

Most glorious art thou! when from thy pavilion
  Thou lookest forth at morning; flinging wide
    Its curtain clouds of purple and vermillion,
      Dispensing life and light on every side.
      - Bernard Barton

I think you might dispense with half your doctors if you would only consult Dr. Sun more.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

The sun does not shine for a few trees and flowers, but for the wide world's joy.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

She that hath borne seven languisheth: she hath given up the ghost; her sun is gone down while it is yet day: she hath been ashamed and confounded: and the residue of them will I deliver to the sword before their enemies, saith the Lord.
      - Bible, Jeremiah (ch. XV, v. 9)

He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
      - Bible, Matthew (ch. V, v. 45)

There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
  Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
    Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.
      His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.
      - Bible, Psalms (ch. XIX, v. 3-6)

When the sun shines on you, you see your friends. It requires sunshine to be seen by them to advantage!
      - Lady Marguerite Blessington, Countess of Blessington

The glorious sun--the centre and soul of our system--the lamp that lights it,--the fire that heats it,--the magnet that guides and controls it;--the fountain of colour, which gives its azure to the sky, its verdure to the fields, its rainbow-hues to the gay world of flowers and the purple light of love to the marble cheek of youth and beauty.
      - Sir David Brewster

Till, as a giant strong, a bridegroom gay,
  The sun springs dancing through the gates of day,
    He shakes his dewy locks, and hurls his beams
      O'er the proud hills, and down the glowing streams:
        His fiery coursers bound above the main,
          And whirl the car along th' ethereal plain;
            The fiery courses and the car display
              A stream of glory and a flood of day.
      - William Broome

Pleasantly, between the pelting showers, the sunshine gushes down.
      - William Cullen Bryant,
        The Cloud on the Way (l. 18)

Thou material God!
  And representative of the Unknown,
    Who chose thee for His shadow! Thou chief star!
      Centre of many stars!--which mak'st our earth
        Endurable, and temperest the hues
          And hearts of all who walk within thy rays!
            Sire of the seasons! Monarch of the climes,
              And those who dwell in them! for near or far,
                Our inborn spirits have a tint of thee,
                  Even as our outward aspects,--thou dost rise,
                    And shine and set in glory!
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

"If that is not God," said Mirabeau, as the sun shone into his death-chamber, "it is at least his cousin-german."
      - Thomas Carlyle

Make hay while the sun shines.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra),
        Don Quixote (pt. I, bk. III, ch. 11)

All the world's bravery that delights our eyes is but thy several liveries.
      - Abraham Cowley

Shines upon all men with impartial light.
      - Abraham Cowley

Thou tide of glory, which no rest doth know,
  But ever ebb and ever flow!
    Thou golden shower of a true Jove!
      Who doth in thee descend, and heaven to earth make love.
      - Abraham Cowley

Through the soft ways of heaven, and air, and sea,
  Which open all their pores to thee,
    Like a clear river thou dost glide,
      And with they living stream through the close channel slide.
      - Abraham Cowley

The sun, too, shines into cesspools, and is not polluted.
      - Laertius Diogenes bk. VI, sec. 63

Busy old fool, unruly sun,
  Why dost thou thus,
    Through windows and through curtains call on us?
      - Dr. John Donne
