"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October." ~Nathaniel Hawthorne~
"October's the month when the smallest breeze gives us a shower of autumn leaves, bonfires and pumpkins, leaves sailing down - October is red and golden and brown."
"October gave a party; the leaves by hundreds came. The chestnuts, oaks, and maples, and leaves of every name. The sunshine spread a carpet, and everything was grand, Miss Weather led the dancing, Professor Wind the band." ~George Cooper~
