13 Literary Quotes That Will Get You Excited About Autumn

There are two types of people in this world: people who love autumn, and people who hate people who love autumn. Both are fine people to be. However, I’m very much the former. Life can be hard sometimes, and I just want to buy tiny pumpkins. I yearn for apple cider donuts, for pumpkin spice-scented candles, for the nip in the air that means October’s coming. I’m corny! Unforgivably so! I know it, okay? Leave me be!

If you too are unforgivably corny—if you too love tiny pumpkins—here are some quotes I slapped onto the most autumnal stock photos I could find. Mostly I just wanted a reason to scroll through stock photos of scarves and gourds and changing leaves, and I found one. Now excuse me while I put on my “Autumn Acoustic” playlist on Spotify and buy sweaters online that I won’t be able to wear for at least two more months.
