Quotes about a fall afternoon in the country



“But I remember more dearly autumn afternoons in bottoms that lay intensely silent under old great trees”
C.S. Lewis

Believe in yourself, your neighbors, your work, your ultimate attainment of more complete happiness. It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in Autumn.
B. C. Forbes

Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.
George Eliot

Autumn's the mellow time.”
William Allingham

On the motionless branches of some trees, autumn berries hung like clusters of coral beads, as in those fabled orchards where the fruits were jewels . . .”
Charles Dickens
