Fall has officially arrived, which means you can find us crunching through red and orange autumn leaves, sipping on a hot pumpkin spice latte (they're back at Starbucks right now!), and decorating pumpkins. With its gorgeous colors and crisp, cool temperatures, fall is arguably the prettiest season, but it's also one of the shortest. Every year, it seems like we only get a few weekends of gorgeous fall weather in between the summer heat and the first frost of winter—which may be the reason we're so nostalgic for it the rest of the year.

To help you get into the spirit of the season this year, we've rounded up some of our favorite autumn-related quotes and sayings from various authors and characters. Use them to inspire your fall decorating, borrow one for a fall Instagram caption idea, or simply read through them as your homemade PSL simmers away on the stove. When you're done, get out our fall bucket list and start checking things off before the season ends.
