London in November is, predictably, gray. Yet it is full of color in so many ways. I enjoyed my 10 days in the United Kingdom for World Travel Market and owe a hearty thanks to Roomorama and Tune Hotels for lodging during my stay. More from my trip soon!
But before I leave you, some quotes about Fall, er rather Autumn, that were tumbling around in my head as I spent these 10 days in London.
“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.”
― Jim Bishop
“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.”
― Albert Camus
“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, Wither
“Autumn seemed to arrive suddenly that year. The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple.”
― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. [Notebook, Oct. 10, 1842]”
― Nathaniel Hawthorne, The American Notebooks
Thank goodness it was actually sunny for a few of my days here or alas what a wasted quote that last one would have been! 😉
