As it is officially autumn, it seems fitting to celebrate the season. Put down your rake, grab a cup of hot tea or hot chocolate and read some wonderful quotes about the best of the four seasons.
“Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.” — William Cullen Bryant
“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn.” — Elizabeth Lawrence
“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.” — Stanley Horowitz
“Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that i love — that makes life and nature harmonize. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a perfect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” — George Eliot
“The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools.” — Henry Beston
“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.” — Jim Bishop
