Summer Devotions quotes by Andrew Weil
#1. Carbohydrate density is simple to calculate
just divide the quantity of carbohydrate in food by the weight of the food. The more carbs packed into a given gram of food, the higher its carbohydrate density. #Quote by Andrew Weil
Summer Devotions quotes by Susanna Kearsley
#2. In the years that I worked in museums, first as a summer student and eventually as a curator, one of the primary lessons I learned was this: History is shaped by the people who seek to preserve it. We, of the present, decide what to keep, what to put on display, what to put into storage, and what to discard. #Quote by Susanna Kearsley
Summer Devotions quotes by Steve Carell
#3. We always spend the summer together. My wife and kids, we always go back to Massachusetts and spend the summer there near where my wife and I both grew up. I wasn't willing to sacrifice the summer to go elsewhere. #Quote by Steve Carell
Summer Devotions quotes by Glen Mazzara

Summer Devotions quotes by Patti Smith
#6. Yet you could feel a vibration in the air, a sense of hastening. It had started with the moon, inaccessible poem that it was. Now men had walked upon it, rubber treads on a pearl of the gods. Perhaps it was an awareness of time passing, the last summer of the decade. Sometimes I just wanted to raise my hands and stop. But stop what? Maybe just growing up. #Quote by Patti Smith
Summer Devotions quotes by Mark Twain
#7. It is human life. We are blown upon the world; we float buoyantly upon the summer air a little while, complacently showing off our grace of form and our dainty iridescent colors; then we vanish with a little puff, leaving nothing behind but a memory - and sometimes not even that. I suppose that at those solemn times when we wake in the deeps of the night and reflect, there is not one of us who is not willing to confess that he is really only a soap-bubble, and as little worth the making. #Quote by Mark Twain
Summer Devotions quotes by Elizabeth Von Arnim
#8. Well, she had had the most wonderful summer; she had got that anyhow tucked away up the sleeve of her memory, and could bring it out and look at it when the days were wet and she felt cold and sick. #Quote by Elizabeth Von Arnim
Summer Devotions quotes by Victoria Gray Adams
#9. As far as I am concerned, freedom summer never really ended. #Quote by Victoria Gray Adams
Summer Devotions quotes by Khalil Gibran
#10. And some of your elders remember pleasures with regret like wrongs committed in drunkenness. But regret is the beclouding of the mind and not its chastisement. They should remember their pleasures with gratitude, as they would the harvest of a summer. #Quote by Khalil Gibran
Summer Devotions quotes by Bill Gates
#11. My grade point average went from a 2.2 to a 4.0 over the summer. I wanted to get straight A's. I decided to get straight A's. I didn't want people to think I was dumb. And when you get straight A's once, its easier. #Quote by Bill Gates
Summer Devotions quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#12. Death is more certain than the morrow, than night following day, than winter following summer. Why is it then that we prepare for the night and for the winter time, but do not prepare for death. We must prepare for death. But there is only one way to prepare for death - and that is to live well. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Summer Devotions quotes by Tahereh Mafi

Summer Devotions quotes by Shana Norris
#14. If mom could live in her fantasy world this summer, maybe I could, too. #Quote by Shana Norris
Summer Devotions quotes by Caitlin R. Kiernan
#15. There are new smells on the wind, the healthy scent of green and growing things, the way a summer day can smell, or a greenhouse, sugarsmooth aroma of budding trees and water flowing free across coarse and sparkling sand. #Quote by Caitlin R. Kiernan
Summer Devotions quotes by Lin Yutang
#16. How many of us are able to distinguish between the odors of noon and midnight, or of winter and summer, or of a windy spell and a still one? If man is so generally less happy in the cities than in the country, it is because all these variations and nuances of sight and smell and sound are less clearly marked and lost in the general monotony of gray walls and cement pavements. #Quote by Lin Yutang
Summer Devotions quotes by Elizabeth Goudge
#17. The Eliots found it a queer sort of evening - a transition evening. Hitherto the Herb of Grace had been to them a summer home; they had known it only permeated with sun and light, flower-scented, windows and doors open wide. But now doors were shut, curtains drawn to hide the sad, grey dusk. Instead of the lap of the water against the river wall they heard the whisper of the flames, and instead of the flowers in the garden they smelt the roasting chestnuts, burning apple logs, the oil lamps, polish - all the home smells. This intimacy with the house was deepening; when winter came it would be deeper still. Nadine glanced over her shoulder at the firelight gleaming upon the dark wood of the panelling, at the shadows gathering in the corners, and marvelled to see how the old place seemed to have shrunk in size with the shutting out of the daylight. It seemed gathering them in, holding them close. #Quote by Elizabeth Goudge
Summer Devotions quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#18. Of all the plants, trees have the largest surface area covered in leaves. For every square yard of forest, 27 square yards of leaves and needles blanket the crowns. Part of every rainfall is intercepted in the canopy and immediately evaporates again. In addition, each summer, trees use up to 8,500 cubic yards of water per square mile, which they release into the air through transpiration. This water vapor creates new clouds that travel farther inland to release their rain. As the cycle continues, water reaches even the most remote areas. This water pump works so well that the downpours in some large areas of the world, such as the Amazon basin, are almost as heavy thousands of miles inland as they are on the coast.

There are a few requirements for the pump to work: from the ocean to the farthest corner, there must be forest. And, most importantly, the coastal forests are the foundations for this system. If they do not exist, the system falls apart. Scientists credit Anastassia Makarieva from Saint Petersburg in Russia for the discovery of these unbelievably important connections. They studied different forests around the world and everywhere the results were the same. It didn't matter if they were studying a rain forest or the Siberian taiga, it was always the trees that were transferring life-giving moisture into land-locked interiors. Researchers also discovered that the whole process breaks down if coastal forests are cleared. It's a bit like if you were using a #Quote by Peter Wohlleben
Summer Devotions quotes by Summer Sanders
#19. Indoor pools just don't seem as inviting to me. #Quote by Summer Sanders
Summer Devotions quotes by David Mamet
#20. In the sixties, the Commune emerged as a riposte to the nuclear family. This was an autonomic re-creation of not only preindustrial, but pre-agrarian life; it was the Return to Nature, but the Commune, like the colleges from which the idea reemerged, only functioned if Daddy was paying the bills, for the rejection of property can work only in subvention or in slavery. It is only in a summer camp (College or the hippie commune) that the enlightened live on the American Plan - room and board included prepaid - and one is free to frolic all day in the unspoiled woods. #Quote by David Mamet
Summer Devotions quotes by Ruth Ozeki
#21. Everything seemed to grow blacker as I sat there, except for the fireflies whose tiny pulsing lights drew arcs through the dark summer air. On off . . . on off . . . on off . . . on off. The longer I stared, the dizzier I got, until I felt as if the world was tipping and pitching me forward down the mountainside into the long throat of the night. #Quote by Ruth Ozeki
Summer Devotions quotes by Sarina Bowen
#22. And these crazy maniacs? They'll be your family too if you let them. I mean, they'll fucking drive you bananas sometimes, but trust me when I say it's totally worth it." I believe him. "I can't wait to meet them," I say softly. His mouth travels along the edge of my jaw before hovering over my lips. "They're going to love you." He kisses me, slow and sweet. "I love you." I rub the pad of my thumb over his bottom lip. "Loved you every summer since I was thirteen years old. Love you even more now. #Quote by Sarina Bowen
Summer Devotions quotes by Jacqueline Carey
#23. So I leave flowers; spring flowers, then summer flowers. I gather the red and orange and yellow trumpet flowers, for a trumpet is a thing that makes a loud noise like a shout, and I tie their vines together and leave them to shout I love you in a row from Miranda's window-ledge. #Quote by Jacqueline Carey
Summer Devotions quotes by Helmut Krausser
#24. At some point during the summer of 1944 she started wearing two plaits instead of one, and sometimes wore her hair loose. It was ... indescribable. That hair, a dark firefall, a molten mass, I would have given everything - everything! - to run my fingers through it, to have a taste of the girl, nothing else was important, you could have shown me thousands of similar creatures or even brought them to me, she was the one I wanted, no one else, only her, and wholly, entirely, with everything.
And yet: my love could have lighted on any girl, on any one of all the pretty girls this side of death. #Quote by Helmut Krausser
Summer Devotions quotes by Jacqueline E. Smith
#25. In my stories, I wrote Malcolm as fire and gold and power, but here in my arms, Colin is cedar, silver, and summer air. #Quote by Jacqueline E. Smith
Summer Devotions quotes by Joanne Harris
#26. We came in the wind of the carnival. A wind of change, or promises. The merry wind, the magical wind, making March hares of everyone, tumbling blossoms and coat-tails and hats; rushing towards summer in a frenzy of exuberance. #Quote by Joanne Harris
Summer Devotions quotes by Elizabeth Akers Allen
#27. At Last

At last, when all the summer shine
That warmed life's early hours is past,
Your loving fingers seek for mine
And hold them close - at last - at last!
Not oft the robin comes to build
Its nest upon the leafless bough
By autumn robbed, by winter chilled, -
But you, dear heart, you love me now.

Though there are shadows on my brow
And furrows on my cheek, in truth, -
The marks where Time's remorseless plough
Broke up the blooming sward of Youth, -
Though fled is every girlish grace
Might win or hold a lover's vow,
Despite my sad and faded face,
And darkened heart, you love me now!

I count no more my wasted tears;
They left no echo of their fall;
I mourn no more my lonesome years;
This blessed hour atones for all.
I fear not all that Time or Fate
May bring to burden heart or brow, -
Strong in the love that came so late,
Our souls shall keep it always now!
Do not hesitate to walk into the life with love #Quote by Elizabeth Akers Allen
Summer Devotions quotes by Thomas Hardy
#28. That it would always be summer and autumn, and you always courting me, and always thinking as much of me as you have done through the past summertime! #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Summer Devotions quotes by James Patterson
#29. I wanted an endless summer with you. But then darkness always comes doesn't it? Just a fact of life, i guess #Quote by James Patterson
Summer Devotions quotes by Guy Debord
#30. The word psychogeography, suggested by an illiterate Kabyle as a general term for the phenomena a few of us were investigating around the summer of 1953, is not too inappropriate. It does not contradict the materialist perspective of the conditioning of life and thought by objective nature. Geography, for example, deals with the determinant action of general natural forces, such as soil composition or climatic conditions, on the economic structures of a society, and thus on the corresponding conception that such a society can have of the world. Psychogeography could set for itself the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, whether consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals. The charmingly vague adjective psychogeographicalcan be applied to the findings arrived at by this type of investigation, to their influence on human feelings, and more generally to any situation or conduct that seems to reflect the same spirit of discovery.

It has long been said that the desert is monotheistic. Is it illogical or devoid of interest to observe that the district in Paris between Place de la Contrescarpe and Rue de l'Arbalète conduces rather to atheism, to oblivion and to the disorientation of habitual reflexes? #Quote by Guy Debord
Summer Devotions quotes by Kevin Myers
#31. The divine harbinger of summer - warm rain. #Quote by Kevin Myers
Summer Devotions quotes by Sloane Crosley
#32. I'm a summer baby, so I usually have my birthday as a good summer memory. #Quote by Sloane Crosley
Summer Devotions quotes by John Armstrong
#33. Autumn ripens in the summer's ray. #Quote by John Armstrong
Summer Devotions quotes by 5 Seconds Of Summer
#34. Then one day in school, I turned round to the others and said, 'Dude, what if we started a band like All Time Low? #Quote by 5 Seconds Of Summer
Summer Devotions quotes by William Stafford
#35. The Dream Of Now"

When you wake to the dream of now
from night and its other dream,
you carry day out of the dark
like a flame.
When spring comes north and flowers
unfold from earth and its even sleep,
you lift summer on with your breath
lest it be lost ever so deep.
Your life you live by the light you find
and follow it on as well as you can,
carrying through darkness wherever you go
your one little fire that will start again. #Quote by William Stafford
Summer Devotions quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#36. Once as a child, Phoebe had been caught outside in a summer storm, and had seen a butterfly knocked from the air by raindrops. It had fluttered and fallen to the ground, bombarded from every direction. The only choice had been to fold its wings, take shelter and wait.
This man was the storm and the shelter, pulling her into a deep, encompassing darkness where there was too much to feel- hot soft firm sweet hungry rough silken tugging. She strained helplessly in his arms, although she didn't know whether she was trying to escape or press closer.
She had craved this, the hardness and heat of his body against hers, the sensation familiar and yet not at all familiar.
She had feared this, a man with a will and power that matched her own, a man who would desire and possess every last part of her without mercy. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Summer Devotions quotes by Vera Brittain
#37. Perhaps ...
To R.A.L.
Perhaps some day the sun will shine again,
And I shall see that still the skies are blue,
And feel one more I do not live in vain,
Although bereft of you.
Perhaps the golden meadows at my feet,
Will make the sunny hours of spring seem gay,
And I shall find the white May-blossoms sweet,
Though You have passed away.
Perhaps the summer woods will shimmer bright,
And crimson roses once again be fair,
And autumn harvest fields a rich delight,
Although You are not there.
But though kind Time may many joys renew,
There is one greatest joy I shall not know
Again, because my heart for loss of You
Was broken, long ago. #Quote by Vera Brittain
Summer Devotions quotes by Sarah Carter
#38. Everybody should have the right to wear flip-flops in summer. #Quote by Sarah Carter
Summer Devotions quotes by Cheryl Ladd
#39. We always seem to be a bit surprised that our children are reflecting stuff that we are showing them. I don't know about you, but every movie that I saw when I was a kid, I emulated. I was Haley Mills for an entire summer and had an English accent. #Quote by Cheryl Ladd
Summer Devotions quotes by Natalie Babbitt
#40. The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color. #Quote by Natalie Babbitt
Summer Devotions quotes by Annie Dillard
#41. Write about winter in the summer. Describe Norway as Ibsen did, from a desk in Italy; describe Dublin as James Joyce did, from a desk in Paris. Willa Cather wrote her prairie novels in New York City; Mark Twain wrote 'Huckleberry Finn' in Hartford. Recently scholars learned that Walt Whitman rarely left his room. #Quote by Annie Dillard
Summer Devotions quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#42. Today ... the bluebirds, old and young, have revisited their box, as if they would fain repeat the summer without intervention of winter, if Nature would let them. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Summer Devotions quotes by Michael Wilbon
#43. There's no greater city between Memorial Day and Labor Day than Chicago. It's the single best summer city in America. #Quote by Michael Wilbon
Summer Devotions quotes by Don DeLillo
#44. The skies she retained in memory were dramas of cloud and sea storm, or the electric sheen before summer thunder in the city, always belonging to the energies of sheer weather, of what was out there, air masses, water vapor, westerlies. #Quote by Don DeLillo
