Apples All Around
October is National Apple Month in the United States. (According to some reports, the holiday actually lasts throughout the apple harvesting season - from September through November.)
What an idea! After all, who doesn't love apples?
To celebrate this timely and tart occasion, here are some of our favorite quotations about apples:
"Anyone can count the seeds in an apple,
but only God can count the number of apples in a seed.
(1926 - )
"An apple a day
keeps the doctor away."
Old Welsh Proverb
"Even if I knew that tomorrow
the world would go to pieces,
I would still plant my apple tree."
German Protestant Reformer
(1483 - 1546)
"The apple does not fall
far from the tree."
