October Quotations:

"Just before the death of flowers,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season
When nature is all aglow."

"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted
on, and produce so pleasant and effect on
the feelings, as now in October."
Nathaniel Hawthorne
