The problem with the last few days of summer is that you can’t hold on to them. They zoom by way too fast. You live through them in a dream until they’re over. And then everything slows down to a glacial pace again.
Susane Colasanti, Waiting for You (via -daysgoby)
Appropriate end-of-summer quote is appropriate. Our summer Fridays end after Labor Day. More than a few tears being shed in the Penguin offices over that. On the other hand: fall books!
