Me personally, sometimes I don't like mornings, other times I LOVE them. For example, today, (it's still morning btw) I love today's morning :)
Sometimes I cry in the morning, because I see sun shining, birds singing and young people playin' around and I remember back those moments with my friends when we went out in the mornings... makes me cry :'(


Here are some quotes related to mornings:

Lose an hour in the morning, and you will be all day hunting for it.
~Richard Whately

The average, healthy, well-adjusted adult gets up at seven-thirty in the morning feeling just plain terrible.
~Jean Kerr

I'd like mornings better if they started later.
~Author Unknown

The older generation thought nothing of getting up at five every morning - and the younger generation doesn't think much of it either.
~John J. Welsh

Be pleasant until ten o'clock in the morning and the rest of the day will take care of itself.
~Elbert Hubbard

No human being believes that any other human being has a right to be in bed when he himself is up.
~Robert Lynd

I live in mornings. I don't sleep untill morning (2AM abouts) and I wake in the early morning. So my best times are in the morning, so I would have to say that I love them a lot.

i barely know what mornings are.
the only time i like waking up in the morning, is if there is piles of snow outside and you go out and do stuff at like 6, and you come in and its only 9 and it feels like the day lasts forever
i like it :mrgreen:

The first hour of the morning is the rudder of the day~H.W. Beecher

All memorable events transpire in morning time and in a morning atmosphere~Thoreau, Walden (1854)

The morning is a friend to the muses~Erasmus

Seeet is the breath of morn, her rising sweet,
With charm of earliest birds; pleasant the sun,
When first on this delightful land he spreads,
His orient beams on herb, tree, fruit and flower~John Milton, Paradise Lost (1667)

Who knew that there were so many nice quotes about mornings. :!:
Nice ones Rimmer, Phaedrus - those last two in particular are lovely.

The grand show is eternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls.
~John Muir

But look, the morn in russet mantle clad
Walks o'er the dew of yon high eastward hill.
~William Shakespeare, Hamlet

Night's candles are burnt out, and jocund day
Stands tiptoe on the misty mountain-tops.
~William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

To answer the question, I like mornings for the most part. Though, going to work isn't my favorite use of them.

Each morning the day lies like a fresh shirt on our bed; this incomparably fine, incomparably tightly woven tissue of pure prediction fits us perfectly. The happiness of the next twenty-four hours depends on our ability, on waking, to pick it up.
- Walter Benjamin

I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve (or save) the world and a desire to enjoy (or savor) the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
- E. B. White

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning . . .
- J. B. Priestley

Hmmm....
abhobo was really just opining on the word "morning" (which usually has an "up" meaning) sounding just like "mourning" (which always has a "down" meaning). At least that's what I read into it. I suppose if I walk into a wake or funeral I could say "good mourning" to everyone, no matter what time of the day it is?

Well I usually don't like mornings, but I think I'm starting to like them more than ever before. Oh wait! It's 'cause I sleep 'til 10:30 or so lol :wink: oh well yes mornings are good. But about calling them "waffles"? :| Um what if you don't like waffles? (I do... I'm just asking) :roll:

actually I've never tried parfay. Is it spelt parfet, or parfay, or parfete, or how? Never mind I can look it up on my own.
******************************
Oh it's spelt Parfait. ok now back on topic. I don't think I would like it very much. The dictionary defines parfait as:
a frozen dessert of cream, eggs, etc. :? , or of ice cream with syrup, fruit, etc. So I don't know. it doesn't sound to appitizing
