Summer Quotations

Tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams. - Hosea Ballou
Tears of joy are like the summer rain drops pierced by sunbeams.
Hosea Ballou

The spring, summer, is quite a hectic time for people in their lives, but then it comes to autumn, and to winter, and you can't but help think back to the year that was, and then hopefully looking forward to the year that is approaching.

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

People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.

In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
Albert Camus
