The Importance of Seeing the Sunset

Why do we humans love to watch the sunset. Walk Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman any given night and you will see people either sitting and watching the sunset or enjoying an evening walk whilst watching the sunset. Happy Hour at any beach or ocean facing bar or restaurant in Grand Cayman has everyone facing west. Sail Cayman gets frequent bookings for sunset sails or charters as you have seen on our Facebook posts our clients share their images with us. So we thought we’d do some research and we found these very profound quotes today and thought we must share as they are truly beautiful and profound, just like a Caribbean Sunset in the Cayman Islands.

“Sunsets inspire us because light radiating through the clouds offers us some kind of reprieve that all the troubles and all the difficulties of the day are laid to rest in the beauty shown in the sky. It’s in our psyche to desire beauty at the end of the day, so that we can rest assured tomorrow will be perhaps a better day. We sleep better following a pretty or meaningful sunset” – Sandpoint PR.

“When the sun has set, no candle can replace it.” 
― George R.R. Martin

“Soon it got dusk, a grapy dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgundy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries.” 
― Jack KerouacOn the Road

“There’s a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they’re absolutely free. Don’t miss so many of them.” 
― Jo Walton

“A large drop of sun lingered on the horizon and then dripped over and was gone, and the sky was brilliant over the spot where it had gone, and a torn cloud, like a bloody rag, hung over the spot of its going. And dusk crept over the sky from the eastern horizon, and darkness crept over the land from the east.” 
― John SteinbeckThe Grapes of Wrath

“Never waste any amount of time doing anything important when there is a sunset outside that you should be sitting under!” 
― C. JoyBell C.

“In silence the three of them looked at the sunset and thought about God.” 
― Maud Hart LovelaceBetsy-Tacy and Tib

“The pale stars were sliding into their places. The whispering of the leaves was almost hushed. All about them it was still and shadowy and sweet. It was that wonderful moment when, for lack of a visible horizon, the not yet darkened world seems infinitely greater—a moment when anything can happen, anything be believed in.” 
― Olivia Howard DunbarThe Shell of Sense

“If I could lick the sunset, I’ll bet it would taste like Neapolitan ice cream. 
” 
― Jarod KintzAt even one penny, this book would be overpriced. In fact, free is too expensive, because you’d still waste time by reading it.

“Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer the goal.” 
― Elbert Hubbard

“Once I saw a chimpanzee gaze at a particularly beautiful sunset for a full 15 minutes, watching the changing colors [and then] retire to the forest without picking a pawpaw for supper.” 
― Adriaan Kortlandt

“I don’t know how long we stay that way, but we watch the sun go down together. The giant, burnt-orange sphere sinks towards the horizon, coloring the rock layers until it’s gone and the canyon is covered in shadow.” 
― Jennifer Salvato DoktorskiHow My Summer Went Up in Flames

We here at Sail Cayman now hope you feel inspired to make every effort to see more sunsets!
