It is true that summertime is fun time!

If you are a very outgoing person, chances are you would be spending these hot summer days in a pool or a beach. Or perhaps go out-of-town with family and friends to Baguio or Tagaytay where the weather is cooler.

Whether you spend your idle summer days frolicking over sand and water, go window-shopping at the mall, or just staying put with a good book at hand, here are some summer-themed quotations to dwell upon:

"Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate." ―William Shakespeare

Kelle Elmore
"I love how summer just wraps its arms around you like a warm blanket," the American fiction and semi-autobiographical author wrote in Magic in the Backyard.

Wallace Stevens
"The summer night is like a perfection of thought," the American modernist poet wrote in The House Was Quiet and The World Was Calm.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Perhaps one of the most famous quotes about summer, the the American essayist, lecturer, philosopher, and poet wrote in Merlin's Song: "Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air's salubrity,"

Jeanette Walls
"One benefit of Summer was that each day we had more light to read by," the American author and journalist wrote in her memoir The Glass Castle.

Van Morrison
"Smell the sea, and feel the sky. Let your soul and spirit fly," the Northern Irish singer-songwriter, instrumentalist, and record producer sang in "Into the Mystic."

Betty Williams
"When all else fails, take a vacation."

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” 

― John Lubbock, The Use Of Life

“Ah, summer – that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It’s a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.” – Darrell Hammond

"And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer."
—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

"Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you're not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don't have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out."
―Deb Caletti, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart
