Aaah, summer – that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It’s a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.
– Darell Hammond
Once something has outlived its usefulness in one area of life, its purpose for being in existence is no longer the same. The leaf that captures a stream of sunlight, and then transfers its energy to the tree, serves one purpose in the spring and summer, and another completely different one through the fall and winter.
– Guy Finley
I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives.
– Ann Voskamp
In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.

I have a bit of a traveling addiction, and, ah, yeah. I went to, ah, Bali this summer.
– Fisher Stevens
Summer afternoon, summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.

We know that in September, we will wander through the warm winds of summer’s wreckage. We will welcome summer’s ghost.
– Henry Rollins
Summer ends, and Autumn comes, and he who would have it otherwise would have high tide always and a full moon every night.
– Hal Borland
Summer is a great time to visit art museums, which offer the refreshing rinse of swimming pools – only instead of cool water, you immerse yourself in art.
– Jerry Saltz
The sweltering summer of the Negro’s legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality.
– Martin Luther King, Jr.
I think I was just bored one summer afternoon, and I decided to post a little video of me singing and playing guitar out of tune.
– Shawn Mendes
I love summertime more than anything else in the world. That is the only thing that gets me through the winter, knowing that summer is going to be there.
– Jack McBrayer
There is nothing I like better at the end of a hot summer’s day than taking a short walk around the garden. You can smell the heat coming up from the earth to meet the cooler night air.
– Peter Mayle
There is a part of me that will forever want to be walking under autumn leaves, carrying a briefcase containing the works of Shakespeare and Yeats and a portable chess set. I will pass an old tree under which once on a summer night I lay on the grass with a fragrant young woman and we quoted e.e. cummings back and forth.
– Roger Ebert
