When the air turns crisp and cool and the leaves start to show their brilliant colors, it’s a time to slow down. A time to reflect. A time to embrace the mood of autumn. Of cozy sweaters and hot apple cider. Of spectacular displays of color shown on the trees and the bounty of harvest time.
Sometimes it’s easy to embrace the season and sometimes it’s a lot harder. Here are 30 of my favorite inspiring quotes for fall to help you get in the mood. So, pour yourself a pumpkin spice latte, a fresh cup of coffee, or some hot apple cider and get ready to relax into the embrace of the fall season.
“It’s the first day of autumn! A time of hot chocolatey mornings, and toasty marshmallow evenings, and, best of all, leaping into leaves!”
-Winnie the Pooh, ‘Pooh’s Grand Adventure’
Go, sit upon the lofty hill,Elizabeth Barrett Browning, ‘The Autumn’
And turn your eyes around,
Where waving woods and waters wild
Do hymn an autumn sound.
The summer sun is faint on them –
The summer flowers depart –
Sit still – as all transform’d to stone,
Except your musing heart.
Autumn shows how beautiful it is to let things go.
I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
-LM Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
Two sounds of autumn are unmistakable…the hurrying rustle of crisp leaves blown along the street…by a gusty wind, and the gabble of a flock of migrating geese.
Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love – that makes life and nature harmonize.
Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.
It looked like the world was covered in a cobbler crust of brown sugar and cinnamon.
-Sarah Addison Allen
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
If a year was tucked inside of a clock, then autumn would be the magic hour.
Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and it I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
Autumn is the season to find contentment at home by paying attention to what we already have.
I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.
-Henry David Thoreau
Notice that autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.
It’s a new season. A perfect opportunity to do something new, something bold, something beautiful!
How beautiful the leaves grow old, How full of light and color are their last days.
Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn.
Dancing of the autumn leaves on a surface of a lake is a dream we see when we are awake.
-Mehmet Murat Ildan
A fallen leaf is nothing more than a summer’s wave goodbye.
Anyone who thinks fallen leaves are dead has never watched them dancing on a windy day.
The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let the dead things go.
There is something incredibly nostalgic and significant about the annual cascade of autumn leaves.
-Joe L Wheeler
With the changing seasons come new beginnings…
Autumn leaves don’t fall, they fly. They take their time and wander on this their only chance to soar.Delia Owens
Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees
Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, we have had our summer evenings, now for October eves.
Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.
-William Cullent Bryant
Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.
-F. Scott Fitzgerald
Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.
