For this week's Quotables segment, there were a number of quotes that I found on summer.
Some were familiar. Some were new to me. See if you recognize any…
Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer
and like it.
Summer afternoon—summer afternoon;
to me those have always been
the two most beautiful words in the English language.
Harriet E. Prescott, The Atlantic Monthly, August 1865
The luxury of all summer's sweet sensation
is to be found when one lies at length
in the warm, fragrant grass,
soaked with sunshine,
aware of regions of blossoming clover
and of a high heaven
filled with the hum of innumerous bees.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Then followed that beautiful season...
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created
in all the freshness of childhood.
