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…

Russell Baker

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer

and like it.

Henry James

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.
