Summer is a time for rest and relaxation, whether you choose to go for a dip in the pool, curl up with a good book under a shady tree, or plan a romantic picnic with your significant other. Writer Henry James echoed this love for the leisurely pace of summer when he once referred to summer afternoon as "the two most beautiful words in the English language."

And whether you’re off on an exotic far-flung adventure or a casual camping trip, the most popular summer quotations remind us that the season is what we make of it. For example, poet Walt Whitman was a fan of simply spending as much time as possible outdoors during the summer months, stating, "I loaf and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease, observing a spear of summer grass."
