  • October Quote Challenge

    Let’s do Autumn, Spring, Octoberfest and Halloween again this year.

    October is autumn in the Northern Hemisphere and is spring in the Southern Hemisphere. Many of us celebrate Oktoberfest and/or Halloween. For this month’s quote challenge use your favorite quote or saying about autumn, spring, Oktoberfest, or Halloween.

    Here are a few suggestions that you may want to use.

    Autumn
    Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. Albert Camus

    Autumn is the hush before winter. French Proverb

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

    Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale. Lauren DeStefano

    Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn. Elizabeth Lawrence

    The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn. Ralph Waldo Emerson

    How beautifully leaves grow old. How full of light and color are their last days. John Burroughs

    Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. George Eliot

    Autumn, the year’s last loveliest smile. William Cullen Bryant

    Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn. Elizabeth Lawrence

    Autumn is my favorite season. Johnny Kelly

    Spring
    Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” Robin Williams

    I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden. Ruth Stout

    In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. Margaret Atwood

    Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. Rainer Maria Rilke

    Spring translates earth’s happiness into colorful flowers. TerriGuillemets

    The earth laughs in flowers. Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Butterflies are self-propelled flowers. R.H. Heinlein

    Came the Spring with all its splendor.
    All its bird and all its blossoms.
    All its flowers and leaves and grasses. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    Spring is when life’s alive in everything Christina Rossetti

    An optimist is the human personification of spring. Susan J. Bissonette

    Spring’s greatest joy beyond a doubt is when it brings the children out. Edgar Guest

    Spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm. John Muir

    Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature. Gerard de Nerval

    Oktoberfest
    I did not find any quotes for Oktoberfet but I found a few beer quotes.
    You may use your own descriptive words for Oktoberfest.

    Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. Benjamin Franklin

    A fine beer may be judged with only one sip, but it’s better to be thoroughly sure. Czech Proverb

    I fear the man who drinks water and so remembers this morning what the rest of us said last night. Greek proverb

    Halloween
    A grandmother pretends she doesn’t know who you are on Halloween. Erma Bombeck

    Witch and ghost make merry on this last of dear October’s days. Author unknown

    When witches go riding, and black cats are seen,
    the moon laughs and whispers, ‘tis near Halloween. Author unknown

    When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam, may luck be yours on Halloween. Author unknown

    Where there is no imagination there is no horror. Arthur Conan Doyle, Sr.

    Shadows of a thousand years rise again unseen,
    Voices whisper in the trees, “Tonight is Halloween!” Dexter Kozen

    The witches fly
    Across the sky,
    The owls go, “Who? Who? Who?”
    The black cats yowl
    And green ghosts howl,
    “Scary Halloween to you!” Nina Willis Walter

    On Halloween night the witches take flight, the moon shines bright and the vampires bite. Author unknown

    There is magic in the night when pumpkins glow by moonlight . Author unknown

    Please upload your pages to the Monthly Challenges gallery and post a link back in this thread.

    I am looking forward to seeing your pages.

    Here is a page I made using a quote by George Eliot.
    Delicious Autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. George Eliot
