what a difference…

…a day made.  Twenty-four little hours.”

It’s 4.46 p.m and Berlin is already shrouded in darkness. As Winter sets in and the days seem to get shorter and shorter I find myself digging out some of my favourite quotes on these units of hours, minutes and seconds that constitute our lives:

Only that day dawns to which we are awake. – Henry David Thoreau

A day without laughter is a day wasted. – Charlie Chaplin

To me, every hour of the day and night is an unspeakably perfect miracle. – Walt Whitman

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night. – Edgar Allan Poe

Each day is a little life: every waking and rising a little birth, every fresh morning a little youth, every going to rest and sleep a little death.- Arthur Schopenhauer
