Delicious Autumn ...

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

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

All those golden autumn days the sky was full of wings. Wings beating low over the blue water of Silver Lake, wings beating high in the blue air far above it . . . bearing them all away to the green fields in the South.

- Laura Ingalls Wilder

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus

No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace

As I have seen in one autumnal face.

~John Donne

Savoring the Season ...

"Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn." - Elizabeth Lawrence

"Oh Autumn, how I have missed you. Cool nights, sunny days, school starts as summer fades."

Caroline Glen

"By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer's best of weather And autumn's best of cheer."

- Helen Hunt Jackson

"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."

- John Muir

October ..

October gave a party;

The leaves by hundreds came -

The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,

And leaves of every name.

The Sunshine spread a carpet,

And everything was grand,

Miss Weather led the dancing,

Professor Wind the band.

~George Cooper, "October's Party"

Chicago is an October sort of city even in spring.

- Nelson Algren

Halloween Quotes

perfect for scrapbook pages and party invitations

"There is a child in every one of us who is still a trick-or-treater looking for a brightly-lit front porch."

- Robert Brault

"Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story." - Mason Cooley

"Backward, turn backward,

O Time, in your flight

make me a child again

just for to-night!"

- Elizabeth Akers Allen

Bittersweet Autumn ...

Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy,

leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the

opposing miseries of summer and winter.

~Carol Bishop Hipps

Tears, idle tears,

I know not what they mean,

Tears from the depth of some divine despair,

Rise in the heart and gather in the eyes,

In looking on the happy autumn fields,

And thinking of the days that are no more.

- Alfred, Lord Tennyson

I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape -- the loneliness of it -- the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it -- the whole story doesn't show.

- Andrew Wyeth

Change is a measure of time and, in the autumn, time seems speeded up. What was is not and never again will be; what is is change.

- Edwin Way Teale
