celebrate summer

Ten great summer quotes:

"Celebrate summer--sun-drenched days and starlit nights."
- Gooseberry Patch

"Then followed that beautiful season...Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with...no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade."
- Gertrude Jekyll

"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

"Breathless, we flung us on a windy hill, laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass."
- Rupert Brooke

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time."
- John Lubbock

“People take pictures of the summer, just in case someone thought they had missed it, and to prove that it really existed.”

It's a lot easier to celebrate summer when you don't have to work. And yes, of course I'm jealous! :)

Now that June 2010 is over and gone, that third quote makes me a little sad.
