"Autumn... the year's last, loveliest smile.”
--William C. Bryant
"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf's a flower. "
"Neither Spring nor Summer Beauty hath such grace As I have seen in one Autumnal face. "
"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. "
"I've never known anyone yet who doesn't suffer a certain restlessness when autumn rolls around... We're all eight years old again and anything is possible."
"Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all. "
"October is a symphony of permanence and change."
-- Bonaro W. Overstreet
"October. This is one of the peculiarly dangerous months to speculate in stocks. The others are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August, and February. "
