Waking Up Early Quotes

early quotes

Here’s a few early quotes…or waking up early quotes to help you in the challenge we all go through each day:

It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom. -Aristotle

I would have it inscribed on the curtains of your bed and the walls of your chamber: “If you do not rise early you can make progress in nothing.” -William Pitt Chatham

Early rising not only gives us more life in the same number of years, but adds, likewise, to their number; and not only enables us to enjoy more of existence in the same time, but increases also the measure. -Caleb C. Colton

The difference between rising at five and seven o’clock in the morning, for forty years, supposing a man to go to bed at the same hour at night, is nearly equivalent to the addition of ten years to a man’s life. Philip Doddridge

I never knew a man come to greatness or eminence who lay abed late in the morning. -Johnathan Swift

Is there aught in sleep can charm the wise to lie in dead oblivion, losing half the fleeting moments of too short a life? -James Thomson

Few ever lived to old age, and fewer still ever became distinguished, who were not in the habit of early rising. -John Todd

No man can promise himself even fifty years of life, but any man may, if he please, live in the proportion of fifty years in forty–let him rise early, that he may have the day before him, and let him make the most of the day, by determining to expend it on two sorts of acquaintance only–those by whom something may be got, and those from whom something maybe learned. -Charles Caleb Colton

See my other motivational quotes pages

Next to temperance, a quiet conscience, a cheerful mind and active habits, I place early rising as a means of health and happiness. -Timothy Flint

The early morning has gold in its mouth. -Benjamin Franklin

Awake before the sun is risen, I call for my pen and papers and desk. -Christopher Smart

Whoever has tasted the breath of morning knows that the most invigorating and most delightful hours of the day are commonly spent in bed; though it is the evident intention of nature that we should enjoy and profit by them. -Robert Southey

When one begins to turn in bed, it is time to get up. -Arthur Wellesley

Well enough for old folks to rise early, because they have done so many mean things all their lives they can’t sleep anyhow. -Mark Twain

Rise early. It is the early bird that catches the worm. Don’t be fooled by this absurd law; I once knew a man who tried it. He got up at sunrise and a horse bit him. -Mark Twain

Wisdom teaches us that none but birds should go out early, and that not even birds should do it unless they are out of worms. -Mark Twain

Early to bed and early to rise, Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise. -Benjamin Franklin

By getting up early in the morning one also gets more time at his disposal for work as compared to late-risers. Scholars and thinkers get up early in the morning and contemplate. -Rig Veda

Each morning sees some task begin,
Each evening sees it close;
Something attempted, something done,
Has earned a night’s repose.
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle… when the sun comes up, you’d better be running. -Unknown

    Getting up early is wonderful, to see the sun rise is beautiful. I think my favorite one is:Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle… when the sun comes up, you’d better be running. -Unknown
