Quotes on Autumn...

Quotes on Autumn

"For man, autumn is a time of harvest,
of gathering together. For nature, it is a time
of sowing, of scattering abroad."

- Edwin Way Teale

"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

"I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as
autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend
almost all the daylight hours in the open air."

- Nathaniel Hawthorne

"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor,
summer an oil painting,
and autumn a mosaic of them all."

- Stanley Horowitz

"Then summer fades and passes and October comes.
We'll smell smoke then, and feel an unexpected
sharpness, a thrill of nervousness, swift elation,
a sense of sadness and departure."

- Thomas Wolfe

"Autumn is a second spring when
every leaf is a flower."

- Albert Camus
