Depending on where you live in the Northern Hemisphere, you might have noticed summer has been slowly edging out the door, while fall has been sneaking in while you weren’t looking.
Fall brings a crisper feel in the air, brightly colored leaves, maybe even the smell of wood smoke from a fireplace along with the smell of fresh-made apple or pumpkin pies cooling in the kitchen. Fall brings a feeling of joy, families gathering and football games. Here are ten quotes about fall to share with family and friends this season.
Quotes About Fall Leaves
The changing of the leaves inspires awe and poetry:
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” ~ Albert Camus
“I see the turning of a leaf dancing in an autumn sun, and brilliant shades of crimson glowing when a day is done.” ~ Hazelmarie Mattie Elliott
“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.” ~ Hal Borland

Quotes About Fall Food
So many tasty choices abound in the fall:
“The heat of autumn is different from the heat of summer. One ripens apples, the other turns them to cider.” ~ Jane Hirshfield
“It looked like the world was covered in a cobbler crust of brown sugar and cinnamon.” ~ Sarah Addison Allen
“The season for enjoying the fullness of life — partaking of the harvest, sharing the harvest with others, and reinvesting and saving portions of the harvest for yet another season of growth.” ~ Denis Waitley
“Give me the end of the year an’ its fun when most of the plannin’ an’ toilin’ is done; bring all the wanderers home to the nest, let me sit down with the ones I love best, hear the old voices still ringin’ with song, see the old faces unblemished by wrong, see the old table with all of its chairs an’ I’ll put soul in my Thanksgivin’ prayers.” ~ Edgar A. Guest
“This is the feast-time of the year, when hearts grow warm and home more dear; when autumn’s crimson torch expires to flash again in winter fires; and they who tracked October’s flight through woods with gorgeous hues bedight, in charmed circle sit and praise the goodly log’s triumphant blaze.” ~ Harriet McEwen Kimball
One Bonus Quote About Fall
Autumn brings a freshness to life, unlike spring where everything is born anew and summer when the laughter carries far on the air. Winter chases everyone indoors, but autumn, its beauty, color and the snap in the air, draws everyone outside. Breathing deeply, snuggling closer around the fire pit while cheering favorite football teams and baseball’s World Series.
Autumn’s harvest fills cupboards and bellies, and as one generation shares recipes with another, as families and friends gather around the table, love is shared among the laughter. But no matter where you are in the fall, this last quote says it all.
“I am made for autumn. Summer and I have a fickle relationship, but everything about autumn is perfect to me. Wooly jumpers, scarves, thin first, then thick, socks. The low slanting light, the crisp mornings, the chill in my fingers those last warm sunny days before the rain and the wind. The moody hues and subdued palate punctuated every now and again by a brilliant orange, scarlet or copper goodbye.” ~ Alys Fowler
