A Summer's Day
Inspired by the sunshine out my window, something that doesn't happen often in England! Here are some summer quotes on the wait to that favourite season of ours...
7 Mile is like an Ave. Back in the days it was poppin' in the summer time.
A lot of parents pack up their troubles and send them off to summer camp.
Acting school was summer camp, and I needed concentration camp. I had so many different ideas swirling between culture and how to tie things together.
Adventure Bay is a convenient and safe place for any number of ships to take in wood and water during the summer months: but in the winter, when the southerly winds are strong, the surf, on all parts of the shore, makes the landing exceedingly troublesome.
After 4 years on NYPD Blue it has been nice to have the summer off and spend time with family and friends. There are a few projects I am interested in and plan to be working this fall.
After graduating in the summer of 1980, I knew I wanted my life to count.
After the navy, I transferred to Harvard and finished there. I was there the spring term of 1951 and I stayed through the summer term and a whole other year, so I was able to do two years in a little less than a year and a half.
Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.
Along with you, I have witnessed the unfortunate rise in gasoline prices that has accompanied the summer driving season and the more recent spike in prices due to Hurricane Katrina.
Among the delights of Summer were picnics to the woods.
However, I decided to pick one quote I read which was my favourite:
By all these lovely tokens September days are here, With summer's best of weather And autumn's best of cheer.
Helen Hunt Jackson
I personally like the rhyme that ties the quote and whole saying together; but I do like the fact that it addresses other seasons too.
