Autumn is clearly my favorite time of year. When I grew up in Texas, there were only two seasons. Either the leaves were lush and green or dead crunchy brown. Colorado offers color and brisk air that is incomparable.
Here are some quotes from famous people who felt as much allurement towards Autumn as I do.
“I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.” – Nathaniel Hawthorn
“Autumn wins you best by this, its mute Appeal to sympathy for its decay.” – Robert Browning
“We are reformers in the spring and summer, but in autumn we stand by the old. Reformers in the morning, and conservers at night.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
“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
