We all love a bit of motivation, and hopefully these quotes will help brighten up your Summer months while you enjoy some well-deserved time off from studying. Fingers crossed we’ll get the weather to match!
“When the sun is shining I can do anything; no mountain is too high, no trouble too difficult to overcome.” – Wilma Rudolph
“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
“One benefit of Summer was that each day we had more light to read by.” – Jeannette Walls
“Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something.” – Regina Brett
“The idea of ‘ferie’, or Summer break, is a long tradition of which all Italians, including myself, participate. It’s a time to relax, reflect, and recharge.” – Frida Gianni
“Aaah, 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
“Summer is a great time to visit art museums, which offer the refreshing rinse of swimming pools – only instead of cool water, you immerse yourself in art. Art is good, bad, boring, ugly, useful to us or not.” – Jerry Saltz
“What do I want to take home from my Summer vacation? Time. The wonderful luxury of being at rest. The days when you shut down the mental machinery that keeps life on track and let life simply wander. The days when you stop planning, analyzing, thinking and just are. Summer is my period of grace.” – Ellen Goodman
Hopefully these Summer quotes will get you in the mood for a Summer full of fun, rest, relaxation and good memories. Enjoy the longer days and lighter nights, spend time with your family and friends, and enjoy the rare lack of responsibility that often comes with a long Summer break. Then it’ll be time to do it all over again the Autumn – another year of working hard, studying, achieving good grades and trying new things.
