Autumn Quotes and a Bible Verse

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper
time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

- Galatians 6:9

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

We'll smell smoke then, and feel an unexpected sharpness,
a thrill of nervousness, swift elation,
a sense of sadness and departure."

- Thomas Wolfe

"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

"Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect
pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter."

- Carol Bishop Hipps

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

- Stanley Horowitz

"The breezes taste of apple peel.
The air is full of smells to feel -
Ripe fruit, old footballs, burning brush,
New books, erasers, chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive, well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean with suds, the days
Are polished with a morning haze."

- John Updike

"If you do not sow in the spring,
you will not reap in the autumn."

- An Irish Proverb

"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take
time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."

- Elizabeth Lawrence



- E. E. Cummings
