Quote du jour/Edwin Way Teale


The world's favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May.

  Edwin Way Teale (1899-1980)

Addendum: I just saw that I used this very quote on this very day in 2008! Ah well, they are great words no matter how often we read them.

  3. I always say that in October but find that I'm beginning to appreciate spring more than I used to. Is Teale the one who wrote Autumn Across America? Or something like that? I remember loving it years ago.

  4. He was such a popular writer when I was growing up. I think my Aunt Fran first introduced him to me with the book North with the Spring.

    1. I have a little reading scheme planned for this summer. I am going to read his Journey Into Summer beginning on June 21, the first day of summer. I so look forward to this.
