“The season of autumn is the very essence of comfort. Everything about it feels so safe, so warm. A knit blanket, hot tea, a good book. Crisp wind blowing through the leaves outside your bedroom window. It feels like something out of a movie.” | via FaithfulFall

“things i love about autumn: waking up and my window is cold to the touch | foggy mornings | the forest is filled with 1000 different shades of colors | that smell you can’t describe as anything other than autumn | pumpkin spice lattes | halloween | wearing sweaters and boots and beanies | the crunch of leaves under my shoes | breathing in the cold air | stargazing on crisp nights | the feeling of coziness paired with adventure | drinking hot tea while reading a book outside” | tshifty

“The chill, shivery October morning came; not the October morning of the country, with soft, silvery mists, clearing off before the sunbeams that bring out all the gorgeous beauty of colouring, but the October morning of Milton, whose silver mists were were heavy fogs, and where the sun could only show long dusky streets when he did break through and shine.” | From North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell (1855)

“Her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn–that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness–that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.” | Jane Austen, Persuasion
