FALL

“Autumn is the second spring, when every leaf is a flower.” —Albert Camus

“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.” —Emily Bronte

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.” —Stanley Horowitz

“The best is autumn. It is mature, reasonable, and serious. It glows moderately and not frivolously…It cools down, clears up, makes you reasonable.”—Valentin

“Fall is my favorite season in Los Angeles, watching the birds change color and fall from the trees.” —David Letterman
