Sunrise Captions

Sunrise is a girl’s best friend.

Sunrise: proof the best things in life are free.

Like snowflakes, no two sunrises are alike.

Rise and shine!

Rising to the occasion

Here comes the sun

I want to soak up the sun

Rise before the sun does

Rise and shine: it’s sunrise time

It’s a beautiful morning

I got a pocket full of sunshine

I’m walking on sunshine

The sun will rise and so will I

Even the darkest night ends and the sun rises again

Watch sunrises, not Netflix

Heaven is a place on earth

I love the peace of morning light

Slow down and watch the sunset

Let the sun rise in front of you and in you

Let there be sunrise

Skip the snooze button. Catch the surnise.

Sunrise, coffee, adventure.

I never attempt to analyze these things too thoroughly, but I think that all mountaineers do get a great deal of satisfaction out of overcoming some challenge which they think is very difficult for them, or which perhaps may be a little dangerous.”

– Edmund Hillary

“Climbing has shown me a courageous, strong side of myself, a beautiful bravery. Other days I’ve seen pitiful weakness. I’ve watched myself crawl, belly-flat, across a mountainous landscape of fear.

— Lito Tejada-Flores

“At bottom, mountains, like all wildernesses, challenge our complacent conviction – so easy to lapse into – that the world has been made for humans by humans. Most of us exist for most of the time in worlds which are humanly arranged, themed and controlled. One forgets that there are environments which do not respond to the flick of a switch or the twist of a dial, and which have their own rhythms and orders of existence. Mountains correct this amnesia. By speaking of greater forces than we can possibly invoke, and by confronting us with greater spans of time than we can possibly envisage, mountains refute our excessive trust in the man-made. They pose profound questions about our durability and the importance of our schemes. They induce, I suppose, a modesty in us.”

― Robert MacFarlane

“Mountains are not stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve, they are the cathedrals where I practice my religion.”

— Anatoli Boukreev

“There is no such sense of solitude as that which we experience upon the silent and vast elevations of great mountains. Lifted high above the level of human sounds and habitations, among the wild expanses and colossal features of Nature, we are thrilled in our loneliness with a strange fear and elation – an ascent above the reach of life’s expectations or companionship, and the tremblings of a wild and undefined misgivings.”

– J. Sheridan Le Fanu

“Man can climb to the highest summits, but he cannot dwell there long.”

– George Bernard Shaw

“You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen.”

– Rene Daumal

“When you stand at the bottom of the mountain and look up at the mountaintop, the path looks hard and stony, and the top is obscured by clouds. But when you reach the top and you look down, you realize that there are a thousand paths that could have brought you to that place.” 

– Roz Savage

“Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.”

– Barry Finlay

― Craig D. Lounsbrough

“Mountain hikes instilled in me a life-long urge to get to the top of any inviting summit or peak.”

— Paul D. Boyer

“To aim for the highest point is not the only way to climb a mountain.”

– Nan Shepherd

“Without mountains, we might find ourselves relieved that we can avoid the pain of the ascent, but we will forever miss the thrill of the summit. And in such a terribly scandalous trade-off, it is the absence of pain that becomes the thief of life.”

– Craig D. Lounsbrough

“The top of one mountain is always the bottom of another.”

— Marianne Williamson
