“I fell for her in summer, my lovely summer girl,
From summer she is made, my lovely summer girl,
I’d love to spend a winter with my lovely summer girl,
But I’m never warm enough for my lovely summer girl,
It’s summer when she smiles, I’m laughing like a child,
It’s the summer of our lives; we’ll contain it for a while
She holds the heat, the breeze of summer in the circle of her hand
I’d be happy with this summer if it’s all we ever had.” by Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver.
“Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair…” by Susan Polis Schutz.
“A man says a lot of things in summer he doesn’t mean in winter.” by Patricia Briggs, Dragon Blood.
“Summer was here again. Summer, summer, summer. I loved and hated summers. Summers had a logic all their own and they always brought something out in me. Summer was supposed to be about freedom and youth and no school and possibilities and adventure and exploration. Summer was a book of hope. That’s why I loved and hated summers. Because they made me want to believe.” by Benjamin Alire Sáenz, Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” by John Lubbock, The Use Of Life.
