Fun in the Sun

Fun in the Sun

Sunshine.  Glorious sunshine!  I was browsing through some of my sunburst photos and decided it might be fun to find some quotes about the sun.  There were a lot of heartfelt, intellectual, sophisticated thoughts about sunshine.  Here are a few of my favorites:

A Day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”  –Steve Martin

“Sunshine is a welcome thing.  It brings a lot of brightness.”  –Jimmie Davis

“Some sunshine is good for the soul, but I always make sure I wear a big hat.” — Miranda Kerr

“Two basic items necessary to sustain life are sunshine and coconut milk.” –Dustin Hoffman

“Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone, It’s not warm when she’s away, Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone, And she’s always gone too long, Anytime she goes away.” –Bill Withers

“I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.” –Dr. Suess

The sun,–the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man–burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-coloured glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray.”  —Charles Dickens

Okay, I have to explain why I chose this quote: It makes me think of the fabulous ocean life (“The sun, the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man”) and the costly camera equipment you need to capture it correctly (“through cathedral dome“) and how all the good stuff always hides in crevices.

“We must leave this terrifying place tomorrow and go searching for sunshine.” –F. Scott Fitzgerald

“Sunshine is helpful for thinking.  It warms up the brain cells.”  –Shannon Wiersbitzky

Well, I hope you enjoyed my “sunny” presentation.  “May the Sun be always at your back!”–Irish Saying

  1. These are great, Brook. I love your photography. Your photos make me feel very jealous. What a great thing, to be able to look under the surface of the water and see the amazingly beautiful things that live there. And then to be able to capture them with your camera. And sunshine…I love the sun. I miss the sun most days during the winter. I have no window in my office, so I get to see it for a few minutes at lunch time, but it is so weak and so often filtered by haze. I love those crystal blue skies, the sun warming my body and my soul. My favorite quote was Steve Martin’s, sounds like some dumb thing I would say…Thanks for this.

    1. Thanks Gery! That’s a really kind thing to say. You make me think of “Joe Versus the Volcano” in your office without a window. Are you sure you don’t have a brain cloud? The hazy weak sun could be the result of a brain cloud. I would have it checked if I were you.
