The Voices of A Thousand Little Gnomes....

"Gnomes live ten times faster than humans. They're harder to see than a high-speed mouse. That's one reason why most humans hardly ever see them. The other is that humans are very good at not seeing things they know aren't there. And, since sensible humans know that there are no such things as people four inches high, a gnome who doesn't want to be seen probably won't be seen." Terry Pratchett

"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf's a flower." Albert Camus

"It's hard to stop Muggles from noticing us if we're keeping dragons in the back garden - anyway, you can't tame dragons, it's dangerous." Ron Weasley

"It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring, who reaps a harvest in Autumn." B. C. Forbes

"Change is a measure of time and, in the autumn, time seems speeded up. What was is not and never again will be; what is is change." Edwin Way Teale

"Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns." George Eliot

"Autumn wins you best by this its mute Appeal to sympathy for its decay." Robert Browning

Fall is my favorite season in Los Angeles, watching the birds change color and fall from the trees." David Letterman
