Autumn Quotes , Time remorselessly rumbles , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

Time remorselessly rumbles down the corridors and streets of our lives. But it is not until autumn that most of us become aware that our tickets are stamped with a terminal destination… that whatever can be done with our thoughts, words, and actions must be done soon. As we hypnotically watch the steadily diminishing reserve of sand in Life’s hourglass, the instincts of a miser surface. Life is now savored, sipped as with a fine nineteenth-century French wine…. It is during the autumn of our lives that this inner vintage begins to sculpt and paint the face as it seeps through the skin from within. ~ Joe L. WheelerRemote Controlled: How TV Affects You and Your Family


Autumn Quotes , There is no season in all the year , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

There is no season in all the year so beautiful, so radiant with glory, as the early autumn. There is no time when the human soul drinks in so fully the glory and beauty of nature. All objects of beauty are more beautiful while passing away from us. The closing up of a beautiful life—the fading of the holy stars in the dim light of morning—the ending of a quiet summer day and the passing away of the bright summer glory, are all more sweet and lovely as they are lost to us. The death-glow always beautifies anything that wears the trace of beauty ere it goes back to nothingness. We do not understand the secret of this principle, yet we know that it is some law of the infinite mind. ~ Northern Advocate


Autumn Quotes , There he goes, in his long russet surtout , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

The world is tired, the year is old,
The faded leaves are glad to die… ~ Sara Teasdale“November”


Autumn Quotes , The time of the falling leaves has come again , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

The time of the falling leaves has come again. Once more in our morning walk we tread upon carpets of gold and crimson, of brown and bronze, woven by the winds or the rains out of these delicate textures while we slept.
How beautifully the leaves grow old! How full of light and color are their last days! There are exceptions, of course. The leaves of most of the fruit-trees fade and wither and fall ingloriously. They bequeath their heritage of color to their fruit. Upon it they lavish the hues which other trees lavish upon their leaves….
But in October what a feast to the eye our woods and groves present! The whole body of the air seems enriched by their calm, slow radiance. They are giving back the light they have been absorbing from the sun all summer. ~ John Burroughs“The Falling Leaves,” Under the Maples


Autumn Quotes , The Sussex lanes were very lovely , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

The Sussex lanes were very lovely in the autumn. I started going for long lone country walks among the spendthrift gold and glory of the year-end, giving myself up to the earth-scents and the sky-winds and all the magic of the countryside which is ordained for the healing of the soul. ~ Monica Baldwin – I Leap Over the Wall: Contrasts and Impressions After Twenty-Eight Years in a Convent


Autumn Quotes , The spirits of the air live on the smells , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

The gardens, or sits singing in the trees… ~ William Blake(1757-1827), “To Autumn”


Autumn Quotes , The smile that flickers on baby’s lips when , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

The smile that flickers on baby’s lips when he sleeps — does anyone know where it was born? Yes, there is a rumor that a young pale beam of a crescent moon touched the edge of a vanishing autumn cloud, and there the smile was first born in the dream of a dew-washed morning. ~ Rabindranath Tagore


Autumn Quotes , The narrow bud opens her beauties to , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

Autumn Quotes , The hush comes with the deepening , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

The hush comes with the deepening of Autumn; but it comes gradually. Our ears are attuned to it, day by quieter day. But even now, if one awakens in the deep darkness of the small hours, one can hear it, a foretaste of Winter silence. It’s a little painful now, and a little lonely because it is so strange. ~ Hal Borland


Autumn Quotes , The human soul is slow to discover , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

The human soul is slow to discover the real excellence of things given to us by a bountiful Creator, and not until the shadows of death begin to gather around the object that we love, do we see its worth and beauty. Autumn is the dim shadow that clusters about the sweet, precious things that God has created in the realm of nature. While it robs them of life, it tears away the veil and reveals the golden gem of beauty and sweetness. Beauty lurks in all the dim old aisles of nature, and we discover it at last. ~ Northern Advocate

The stars wink down their love and mirth
The Autumn season is giving birth.
Oh, it must be October… ~ Pearl N. Sorrels


Autumn Quotes , The foliage has been losing its freshness , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

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 Quotes , The days may not be so bright , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn
Autumn Quotes – Fall Saying Images

Autumn Quotes , Thanksgiving is the winding up , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

Thanksgiving is the winding up of autumn. The leaves are off the trees, except here and there on a beech or an oak; there is nothing left on the boughs but a few nuts and empty birds’ nests. The earth looks desolate, and it will be a comfort to have the snow on the ground, and to hear the merry jingle of the sleigh-bells. ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes


Autumn Quotes , Summer ends, and Autumn comes , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

From their many shades of green,
Into colors bright and gorgeous…

Underneath the smiling sun,
Each leaf vying with the other
In the change they’ve now begun.
Giving up their Summer wardrobes,
Gladly; joyfully, with glee,
Putting on their Autumn trousseau,
As they leave their mother tree… ~ Gertrude Tooley Buckingham“The Wedding of the Leaves” (1940s)


Autumn Quotes , Somewhere along the way, I realized , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

Somewhere along the way, I realized that the new year doesn’t begin for me in January. The new and fresh has always come for me in the Fall.

My year begins in Autumn. ~ Betsy Cañas Garmon“On birthday cake and pouring oil,” 2013 November 5th, www.wildthymecreative.com

The reddening October trees….

No harvest joy is worth a dream?
A little while and night shall come,
A little while, then, let us dream… ~ Ernest Dowson“Autumnal”


Autumn Quotes , On the whole I take it that middle age , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

On the whole I take it that middle age is a happier period than youth. In the entire circle of the year there are no days so delightful as those of a fine October, when the trees are bare to the mild heavens, and the red leaves bestrew the road, and you can feel the breath of winter morning and evening—no days so calm, so tenderly solemn, and with such a reverent meekness in the air. ~ Alexander Smith“An Essay on an Old Subject”

It would be terrible if we just skipped from September to November, wouldn’t it?…” ~ Lucy Maud Montgomery

With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
Beneath my shady roof, there thou mayst rest,
And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe,
And all the daughters of the year shall dance!
Sing now the lusty song of fruits and flowers. ~ William Blake(1757-1827), “To Autumn”

Autumn Quotes , Magnificent Autumn! He comes not like a pilgrim , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

Magnificent Autumn! He comes not like a pilgrim, clad in russet weeds. He comes not like a hermit, clad in gray. But he comes like a warrior, with the stain of blood upon his brazen mail. His crimson scarf is rent…. The wind…. wafts to us the odor of forest leaves, that hang wilted on the dripping branches, or drop into the stream. Their gorgeous tints are gone, as if the autumnal rains had washed them out. Orange, yellow, and scarlet, all are changed to one melancholy russet hue…. There is a melancholy and continual roar in the tops of the tall pines…. It is the funeral anthem of the dying year. ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Lady Autumn, You are here at last… ~ Deirdre Akins

Just after the death of the flowers,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season,
When nature is all aglow—
Aglow with a mystical spendour
That rivals the brightness of spring,
Aglow with a beauty more tender
Than aught which fair summer could bring…. ~ Emeline B. Smith“Indian Summer”


Autumn Quotes , It was, as I have said , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance.

As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye… ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~ Washington Irving“The Legend of Sleepy Hollow”


Autumn Quotes , It was one of those perfect New York October , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

It was one of those perfect New York October afternoons, when the explosion of oranges and yellows against the bright blue sky makes you feel like your life is passing through your fingers, that you’ve felt this autumn-feeling before and you’ll probably get to feel it again, but one day you won’t anymore, because you’ll be dead. ~ Sarah DunnSecrets to Happiness

It was October again… a glorious October, all red and gold, with mellow mornings when the valleys were filled with delicate mists as if the spirit of autumn had poured them in for the sun to drain — amethyst, pearl, silver, rose, and smoke-blue. The dews were so heavy that the fields glistened like cloth of silver and there were such heaps of rustling leaves in the hollows of many-stemmed woods to run crisply through. ~ L.M. MontgomeryAnne of Green Gables

Autumn Quotes , Is not this a true autumn day , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love — that makes life and nature harmonize. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one’s very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a pefect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~ George Eliotletter to Miss Lewis, 1st October 1841

Autumn Quotes , I step outside and the chilly air tightens , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

I step outside and the chilly air tightens the skin on my bare arms. Summer has ended all too quickly, and some of the leaves on the trees have already started to burn with the colors of fall.

Autumn Quotes , I cherish the loneliness of autumn , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

I cherish the loneliness of autumn…. I am forty, I have become mortal. I have no further psychic, emotional, or intellectual need to prolong summer seasons, and it is only when autumn begins its play that I can truly focus on the rich and vital life I am living. All of a sudden I grow alert. October is a hallelujah! reverberating in my body year-round…. The air is dusty, it smells of dry pine needles; yet I sense imminent ice in the clear blue sky…. How I appreciate everything… fully! After all, tomorrow this reprieve will be buried by blizzards, crushed under slabs of doomsday ice. I cannot waste a minute indoors! I must take advantage of this gift, wedged so tentatively between summer’s hectic somnolence and winter’s harsh apogee…. Each perfect day, I know, is going to be the last beautiful day of autumn. ~ John NicholsThe Last Beautiful Days of Autumn

Autumn Quotes , But when fall comes, kicking summer , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

But when fall comes, kicking summer out on its treacherous ass as it always does one day sometime after the midpoint of September, it stays awhile like an old friend that you have missed.

A moral character is attached to autumnal scenes; the leaves falling like our years, the flowers fading like our hours, the clouds fleeting like our illusions, the light diminishing like our intelligence, the sun growing colder like our affections, the rivers becoming frozen like our lives, all bear secret relation to our destinies. It gave me indescribable pleasure to see the return of the tempestuous season… ~ François-René de Chateaubriand“My Autumn Joys”


Autumn Quotes , A hidden fire burns perpetually , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

A hidden fire burns perpetually upon the hearth of the world…. In autumn this great conflagration becomes especially manifest. Then the flame that is slowly and mysteriously consuming every green thing bursts into vivid radiance. Every blade of grass and every leaf in the woodlands is cast into the great oven of Nature; and the bright colours of their fading are literally the flames of their consuming. The golden harvest-fields are glowing in the heart of the furnace…. By this autumn fire God every year purges the floor of nature. All effete substances that have served their purpose in the old form are burnt up. Everywhere God makes sweet and clean the earth with fire. ~ Hugh Macmillan

Autumn Quotes , [Fall] hurries you along as you walk the roads , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

[Fall] hurries you along as you walk the roads, crunching the leaves that have fallen in mad and variegated drifts. The wind makes you ache in some place that is deeper than your bones. It may be that it touches something old in the human soul, a chord of race memory that says Migrate or die—migrate or die. ~ Stephen King’Salem’s Lot


Autumn Quotes , [F]all bright flame before winter’s deadness , Fall Quotes , Sayings About Autumn

[F]all: bright flame before winter’s deadness; harvest; orange, gold, amber; cool nights and the smell of fire. Our tree-lined streets are set ablaze, our kitchens filled with the smells of nostalgia: apples bubbling into sauce, roasting squash, cinnamon, nutmeg, cider, warmth itself. The leaves as they spark into wild color just before they die are the world’s oldest performance art, and everything we see is celebrating one last violently hued hurrah before the black and white and silence of winter. Fall is begging for us to dance and sing and write with just the same drama and blaze. ~ Shauna NiequistBittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way
