Worth Quoting

"That night was the turning-point in the season. We had gone to bed in
summer, and we awoke in autumn; for summer passes into autumn in some
imaginable point of time, like the turning of a leaf."

(Henry David Thoreau - 1817-1862, The Writings of Henry David Thoreau, vol. 1, p.
356, Houghton Mifflin, 1906)
