ABOUT SUMMER

Here are some quotes about summer:

 

“A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.”
James Dent
“Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds.”
Regina Brett

 

“Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you.”
Langston Hughes

 

“Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.”
Russell Baker

 

“Let aman walk ten miles steadily on a hot summer’s day along a dusty English road, and he will soon discover why beer was invented.”
Gilbert K. Chesterton

 

“”Summer is a promissory note signed in June, its long days spent and gone before you know it, and due to be repaid next January.”
Hal Borland

 

“I believe that summer is our time, a time for the people, and that no politician should be allowed to speak to us during the summer. They can start talking again after Labor Day.”
Lewis Black

 

“A lot of parents pack up their troubles and send them off to summer camp.”
Raymond Duncan

 

“If you’re not barefoot, you’re overdressed.”
Unknown

  1. I like the way Regina Brett states it: …to do nothing and have it count for something. I passionately hold to the belief that napping/resting/lingering to contemplate and meditate – are all a vital contribution to world peace. When I am intentionally engaged in any of those “be still” activities, I am not giving anyone grief, nor am I bothered by anyone else……. just doing my small part, and soaking in the luxury of those summer respites.
