"I cannot be awake, for nothing looks to me as it did before,
or else I am awake for the first time, and all before has been a mean sleep."
- Walt Whitman
 


"Were I called on to define very briefly the term Art, I should call it 'the reproduction
of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul'. The mere imitation,
however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of Artist."
- Edgar A. Poe
 
"But then fall comes, kicking summer out on it treacherous ass as it always does
one day 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 favourite 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 the last he saw you."
- Stephen King
 
"Autumn carries more gold in its pocket
than all the other seasons."
- Jim Bishop

"L'automne est un deuxième ressort où chaque feuille est une fleur."
- Albert Camus
 
"Autumn is the mellower season,
and what we lose in flowers
we more than gain in fruits."
- Samuel Butler
 
"Beauty of whatever kind, in its supreme development,
invariably excites the sensitive soul to tears."
- Edgar A. Poe
 
"The wind makes you ache in some place that is deeper than your bones.
It may be that is touches something old in the human soul,
a chord of race memory that says Migrate or die -
migrate or die."
- Stephen King
