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

 

What do you have to say about summer?

Published by lifehelps

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord Jesus...now, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.

  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.
