Quote of the Day

You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light.

When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason. ― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

“But you knew there would always be the spring…” ― Ernest Hemingway
