It is the first day of Autumn and here are some quotes for the occasion…


“Autumn has caught us in our summer wear.”

–Philip Larkin


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

-Elizabeth Lawrence


“Walking through the forest it’s as if a fire has been lit. Colors burn at the top of the trees. Leaves fall like sparks to the ground. If one lands on my head, will I be able to understand other tongues? They crunch under my feet as colors are unveiled. Sounds like autumn to me. I walk through various shades of red, orange, and yellow. It is as if the fire is catching. The true colors of the leaves only begin to show as they begin to die. Is that what it takes to reveal our true colors?”

 “I have stirred into the ground the offal, and the decay of the growth of past seasons, and so mended the earth and made its yield increase.”

-Wendell Berry


 “In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil.  And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as from August to November.”

-Rose G. Kingsley


“It is the summer’s last great heat, It is the fall’s first chill: They meet.”

–Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt


“Autumn days come quickly, like the running of a hound on the moor.”

–Irish proverb
