Thoughts for Thursday--Summertime

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is summertime (For more quotes, check out my other blog.)

Why is summer mist romantic and autumn mist just sad?--Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle

Summer bachelors like summer breezes, are never as cool as they pretend to be.--Nora Ephron

In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.--Albert Camus

People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.--Anton Chekov

I almost wish we were butterflies and liv'd but three summer days--three such days with you I could fill with more delight than fifty common years could ever contain.--John Keats, Bright Star: Love Letters and Poems of John Keats to Fanny Brawn

And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.--F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
