“No spring nor summer’s beauty hath such grace
As I have seen in one Autumnal face….”
– John Donne
The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many….
September is dressing herself in showy dahlias and splendid marigolds and starry zinnias.
October, the extravagant sister, has ordered an immense amount of the most gorgeous forest tapestry for her grand reception.
– Oliver Wendell Holmes
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
– Albert Camus
I loved autumn, the one season of the year that God seemed to have put there just for the beauty of it.
– Lee Maynard
