Favorite Almost Summer Quotes

1. "The subjects range from the pastoral (sniffing of the butt of a melon to tell if it's ripe. and almost romantically lush descriptions of lightening storms sweeping across fields on summer nights) to elaborations on the value of man's having a life of his own, apart from whatever life he has with his family, a private life that no one knows anything about, "a place he can be himself without concern of disappointment or rejection"."

2. "I nodded, appreciating the wisdom of her words.‘Yellow is the colour of early spring,' she said, ‘just look at your garden!' She gestured towards the borders, which were full of primulas, crocuses and daffodils. ‘The most cheerful of colours,' she continued, ‘almost reflective in its nature and it is of course the colour of the mind.'‘That's why we surround ourselves with it!' laughed Phyllis, ‘in the hope that its properties will rub off.'‘Nonsense dear,' said Mrs Darley dismissively, ‘Yellow light simply encourages us to think more positively. It lifts our spirits and raises our self-esteem in time for summer.'I immediately made a mental note to surround myself with the colour of the season and, like Phyllis, hoped that some of its properties would rub off on me."

I breathe in the horsy scent of eucalyptus, the thick sugary pine, aware of each breath I take, how each one keeps me in the world a few seconds longer. I taste the sweetness of the summer air on my tongue and want to just gulp and gulp and gulp it into my body--this living, breathing, heart-beating body of mine."
Author: Jandy Nelson

6. "His face almost looked the way it did when he was a teenager, when there was the subtle expression of both confidence and mischief in his darkly handsome eyes. When I think of him now, though, I don't picture his face the way it is. What I see is from a memory, from a moment when he must have been eleven or twelve years old and we were both in our backyard and it was summertime and I was drawing in a coloring book and he was there in the green grass and he didn't know I was watching him. He was crawling around on all fours; he was practicing being a lion or a tiger or more probably a leopard and he was growling to himself, stalking the shadow of a bird, and he didn't see me staring at him and I think my mother was there, looking at us from an upstairs window, watching us both and gently smiling, and what I remember most is that all of us were happy then with who we were at that moment; at that moment, all of us were quietly happy."

His voice cracks saying the words."Excuse me?""That's what it said.""And what's it supposed to mean?""Call me crazy, but I think it might mean that I should check my bed.""Not funny.""Who's laughing? I'm paranoid about going home now. I'm having major flashbacks to summer camp. You know, itching powder in the bedsheets, snakes under the pillow, getting your hand dipped into a bowl full of water while you sleep—"
Author: Laurie Faria Stolarz
10. "Today, while Mother was watching me work, she suddenly remarked, "They say that people who like summer flowers die in the summer. I wonder if it's true." I did not answer but went on watering the eggplants. It is already the beginning of summer. She continued softly, "I am very fond of hibiscus, but we haven't a single one in this garden.""We have plenty of oleanders," I answered in an intentionally sharp tone."I don't like them. I like almost all summer flowers, but oleanders are too loud.""I like roses best. But they bloom in all four seasons. I wonder if people who like roses best have to die four times over again."We both laughed."
