Golden October

Youth is like Spring, an ever-praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season , and what we lose in flowers, we more than gain in fruits. Samuel Butler

There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots maybe lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October.       Nathaniel Hawthorne

But I remember more dearly autumn afternoons in bottoms that lay intensely silent under old great trees. C. S. Lewis

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 Eliot

All things on earth point home in old October: sailors to sea, travellers to walls and fences, hunters to field and hollow and the long voice of the hound, the lover to the love he has forsaken. Thomas Wolfe
