Fall Quotes



“But then 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. It settles in the way an old friend will settle into your favorite chair and take out his pipe and light it and then fill the afternoon with stories of places he has been and things he has done since last he saw you.”

- Stephen King, 'Salem's Lot'

It should come as no surprise to anyone that one of my all time favorite authors penned one of my all time favorite quotes. I just don't think there is anyone who could have described autumn with more feeling than him. This is just dead on. Perfection. 

It`s comfortable and familiar and you keep wanting  more and more until it whisks away again. Gone too soon.

  2. Such a pretty quote!
    I cannot get into the fall mode yet...because it was over 90 degrees here in Dallas. Everyone is busing out boots and scarves, and we are all still swimming in the pool.
    Hopefully it will cool over soon!
