Wednesday's Words & Quippish Quotes: Autumn

In just a few days, it will officially be fall. It is already starting to feel like it here in upstate NY. I love the crispness to the air, the smell of pumpkin pie, and of course, the changing colors to the leaves. I think we only truly appreciate the seasons because they do change. Today's Wednesday's Words & Quippish Quotes is all about fall. Enjoy :)

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” 
― Albert Camus

“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring,                                                                    it was as though a young person died for no reason.” 
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

“My heart is drumming in my chest so hard it aches, but it's the good kind of ache, like the feeling you get on the first real day of autumn, when the air is crisp and the leaves are all flaring at the edges and the wind smells just vaguely of smoke - like the end and the beginning of something all at once.” 
― Lauren Oliver, Delirium
 "Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.” 
― Lauren DeStefano, Wither

 “No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace, as i have seen in one autumnal face.” 
― John Donne
