By the time I finish this post, the autumnal equinox will be past. The equinox is where the days and nights are equal and then we head toward winter.
Though we can look forward to autumn's crisp, cool air and vibrant colors, I'm always a bit sad to see summer end. The pool is closed and the long days, sizzling steaks on the grill, and steamy hot weather that is nature's sauna gives way to the next season.
So if you are like me and need some reminders of the great days that fall brings, here are a few choice quotes to cheer you up:
"Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year.” ― Chad Sugg
“Autumn was her happiest season. There was an expectancy about its sounds and shapes: the distant thunk pomp of leather and young bodies on the practice field near her house made her think of bands and cold Coca-Colas, parched peanuts and the sight of people's breath in the air. There was even something to look forward to when school started ― renewals of old feuds and friendships, weeks of learning again what one half forgot in the long summer. Fall was hot supper time with everything to eat one missed in the morning when too sleepy to enjoy it.” ― Harper Lee
"Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale." —Lauren DeStefano, Wither
