November Quotes

"November always seemed to me the Norway of the year."
- Emily Dickinson

"They began now to gather in the small harvest they had, and to fit up their houses and dwellings against winter, being all well recovered in health and strength and had all things in good plenty. For as some were thus employed in affairs abroad, others were exercising in fishing, about cod and bass and other fish, of which they took good store, of which every family had their portion. All the summer there was no want; and now began to come in store of fowl, as winter approached, of which this place did abound when they came first (but afterward decreased by degrees).

And besides waterfowl there was great store of wild turkeys, of which they took many, besides venison, etc. Besides they had about a peck of meal a week to a person, or now since harvest, Indian corn to that proportion. Which made many afterwards write so largely of their plenty here to their friends in England, which were not feigned but true reports.
- William Bradford (1621)

"When I look into your eyes I can see a love restrained
But darlin' when I hold you don't you know I feel the same
'Cause nothin' lasts forever and we both know hearts can change
And it's hard to hold a candle 1n the cold November rain."
- Guns N' Roses, November Rain

"November comes and November goes,
With the last red berries and the first white snows.

With night coming early and dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket and frost by the gate.

The fires burn and the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest until next spring."
- Elizabeth Coatsworth

"No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds -
November!"
- Thomas Hood

"November's sky is chill and drear,
November's leaf is red and sear."
- Sir Walter Scott

"Over the river and through the wood,
To grandfather's house we go;
The horse knows the way
To carry the sleigh,
Through the white and drifted snow."
- Lydia Maria Child, Thanksgiving Day (1845)
