Albert Camus, as quoted in Visions from Earth (2004) by James R. Miller, p. 126
The melancholy days have come, the saddest of the year. Of wailing winds, and naked woods, and meadows brown and sear.william cullen bryant
I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.L. M. Montgomery
Falling leaves hide the path so quietly.
For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together. For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad.
O, it sets my heart a clickin' like the tickin' of a clock, when the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock.james whitcomb riley
Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!humbert wolfe
And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.
Although each of the four seasons have their own unique charm, autumn's crisp temperatures, the hubbub of back-to-school season, and the beauty of the changing leaves make fall seem like a time of new beginnings. "Autumn is a second spring, where every leaf is a flower," Albert Camus said.
Another common theme in fall quotes is the blessings associated with the harvest season. For farmers, fall is the busiest time of year and the time when all of their hard work comes to fruition. The days are long, but the rewards are well worth the effort. "It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in the autumn," B. C. Forbes said.
Of course, we all know that each season is fleeting. Even if fall is your favorite time of year, there are just a few short months to enjoy it before winter arrives. Make the most of them by picking apples, cheering on your favorite football team, going trick or treating, and planning a delicious Thanksgiving meal for your loved ones. In the blink of an eye, winter will arrive and you'll be busy preparing for Christmas and New Year's. William Cullen expresses the fleeting nature of fall best with the quote, "Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile."
