Something to Think About

 

Before the fruits of prosperity can come, the storms of life need to first bring the required rains of testing, which mixes with the seeds of wisdom to produce a mature harvest.” 

― Lincoln Patz

 

“Autumn. It's crispness, it's anticipation, it's melancholia, it's cool breezes replacing summer's heat. It's long days in the field, a harvest festival when work's done, a cheering crowd in a football stadium, chrysanthemums punctuating a somber landscape. It's Halloween highjinx, pumpkins grinning toothy smiles, the crack of pecan pressed against pecan. It's the first curls of woodsmoke, fresh blisters from pushing a rake. It's crisp and fresh and mellow and snug, solemn and melancholy. And it's very, very welcome.” 

― Good Housekeeping Magazine

 

“The kind of soil in your area determines the type of crop you will plant to harvest; The kind of potentials decide the type of success you will celebrate.” ― Israelmore Ayivor

Writing Skill:
