The world there was the flat world of the ancients; to the east, a cornfield that stretched to daybreak; to the west, a corral that reached to the sunset; between, the conquests of peace, dearer-bought than those of war.
The skull that housed white angels and had vision Of daybreak through the gateways of the mind.
It's not the sort of night for bed anyhow; and daybreak is not so very far off...
If I were so time-poor as to have only one day to spend in Yosemite I should start at daybreak, say at three o'clock in midsummer, with a pocketful of any sort of dry breakfast stuff, for Glacier Point, Sentinel Dome, the head of Illilouette Fall, Nevada Fall, the top of Liberty Cap, Vernal Fall and the wild boulder-choked River Cañon.john muir
Out of the shadows of night, The world rolls into light; It is daybreak everywhere.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
