Evening Quotations

My grandmother took me to church on Sunday all day long, every Sunday into the night. Then Monday evening was the missionary meeting. Tuesday evening was usher board meeting. Wednesday evening was prayer meeting. Thursday evening was visit the sick. Friday evening was choir practice. I mean, and at all those gatherings, we sang.
Maya Angelou

Think in the morning. Act in the noon. Eat in the evening. Sleep in the night.
William Blake

Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.
Mahatma Gandhi

Eleanor Roosevelt

Be thou the rainbow in the storms of life. The evening beam that smiles the clouds away, and tints tomorrow with prophetic ray.
