Bittersweet October. . .

"In the entire circle of the year there are no days so delightful as those of a fine October, when the trees are bare to the mild heavens, and the red leaves bestrew the road, and you can feel the breath of winter, morning and evening; no days so calm, so tenderly solemn, and with such reverent meekness in the air."  -Alexander Smith
"Bittersweet October.  The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of Summer and Winter."  -Carol Bishop Hipps

"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
