That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain.

-Ray Bradbury

Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.

Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.

At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself, darkness, something of the grave almost.

-Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters on Cézanne
