School has started and fall is not yet here, which means we are in that odd limbo time between seasons. There isn’t much to interest me until October, when I can fully embrace pumpkins, costumes, and spooky things. However, September is the perfect time to celebrate apples, which are newly in season. My girls and I made apple chips a few days ago, which may be one reason why apples are on my brain!
This week’s quotes about apples will feature this all-American fruit.
“The morning of the first September was crisp and golden as an apple.” ― J.K. Rowling
“Stories should be natural as apples, brief as lust, long as a thought.” ― Leonard Michaels
“I stand holding the apple in both hands. It feels precious, like a heavy treasure. I lift it up and smell it. It has such an odour of outdoors on it I want to cry.” ― Margaret Atwood
“An apple tree is just like a person. In order to thrive, it needs companionship that’s similar to it in some ways, but quite different than others.” ― Jeffrey Stepakoff
“Why not upset the apple cart? If you don’t, the apples will rot anyway.”– Frank A. Clark
And this one has to be my ultimate favorite:
“If you want to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.” –Carl Sagan
