"Softly the evening came. The sun from the Western horizon like a magician extended his golden wand o'er the landscape; twinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk."
