7 Bits Of Summertime Loveliness

May 29th, 2009 by Amy

According to a Swedish proverb, “A life without love is like a year without summer.” 


Looking forward to falling in love all over again!


1.  In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.  Albert Camus

2.  The summer night is like a perfection of thought.  Wallace Stevens

3.  Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.  Henry James

4.  Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.  John Lubbock

5.  In summer, the song sings itself.  William Carlos Williams

6.  Press close, bare-bosomed Night! Press close, magnetic,
nourishing Night!
Night of south winds!  Night of the large, few stars!
Still, nodding Night!  Mad, naked, Summer Night!
Walt Whitman

7.  Summer is the time when one sheds one’s tensions with one’s clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.  A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all’s right with the world.  Ada Louise Huxtable
