September Whiteboard Wall Quotes

The Bringer of Autumn’s Joys

Every new month creates its own sense of renewal, but there’s something special about the thirty days of September. For one thing, autumn begins during this transitional month. With the coming of the fall equinox, the hours of daylight dwindle, and the days become cooler and shorter. But there’s still plenty of sunshine, and the warmth lingers on, thankfully not as intense as the heat of mid-summer. And apples are in season along with countless apple-scented and apple-flavored foods, drinks, and household items. Can you smell the luscious fragrance of an apple-scented candle right now?

Let’s not overlook the cooler evenings perfect for walks in nature or times spent by the fire with friends or loved ones. Best of all, fewer mosquitoes and other insects are around to “bug” us during outdoor events. To celebrate this special month, you can periodically post the following September quotes and sayings on your dry erase wall throughout the month and keep them in mind as you plan your daily or weekly activities, all the while valuing September’s unique character and taking pleasure in every precious day.
