“Crunch!” On a stroll one crisp morning, you hear the inevitable sound of the first dried leaf of the season biting the dust. It can only mean one thing – autumn has returned! Along with transforming trees and shorter days, fall time can bring with it those pesky, darker feelings that blow in like a cold breeze.
However, as the bright flowers of summer pass away, we’re reminded of the incredible power of change. Don’t let yourself get caught in a seasonal rut! Whether you’re looking for a new opportunity, or seeking inspiration in a familiar role, the shifting season is the perfect time to rethink what’s possible.
To get you prepared for the harvest ahead, here are six of our favorite autumnal quotes for seasonal change:

As I have seen in one Autumnal face.”
