An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





Autumn wins you best by this its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay.


Robert Browning (1812-1889, British poet)


My sorrow, when she's here with me, thinks these dark days of autumn rain are beautiful as days can be; she loves the bare, the withered tree; she walks the sodden pasture lane.


Robert Frost (1875-1963, American poet)


O suns and skies and clouds of June, and flowers of June together. Ye cannot rival for one hour October's bright blue weather.


Helen Hunt Jackson (1830-1885, American writer)


The teeming Autumn big with rich increase, bearing the wanton burden of the prime like widowed wombs after their lords decease.


William Shakespeare (1564-1616, British poet, playwright, actor)


There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!


Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822, British poet)
