Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.Henry David Thoreau
Autumn truly is my favorite time of year — cooler temperature, luscious colors, and activities related to going back to school, hiking, and taking long drives in the country. Life truly does begin again in the fall.
I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.Henry David Thoreau
Working with teachers in Clark County, Nevada, allowed me to stay near the Bellagio on the Las Vegas strip. As always, I would check out the displays in the Conservatory, no matter what season I was there. This talking tree surrounded by pumpkins, the epitome of autumn, kept most of us visitors in stitches as it “spoke” to us in a deep voice and rolled its eyes at us!
How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days.John Burroughs
It’s the leaves, of course, that make us all aware of fall in the air. And no matter how busy we are, the leaves get our attention, especially if they’re ablaze with sundown color.
Americans are at our best when we build bridges between us not walls around us.Eric Swalwell
This treasure — an 1857 humpback bridge near Covington, Virginia, with its middle higher than the ends — speaks to the lessons we can learn from a structure that’s at its prettiest in the fall: we need to continue to strive to build bridges in all walks of life if we are to co-exist peacefully.
Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.Stanley Horowitz
