And here we are starting a new month. I think June is a special month of the year, because somehow it marks the beginning of the summer time: days are longer, warmer, and people start getting in the mood for all the summer parties and celebrations ahead. I’ve selected some famous quotes about the month of June. Hope you enjoy the reading.

“And what is so rare as a day in June? Then, if ever, come perfect days”.

James Russell Lowell


“If a June night could talk, it would probably boast it invented romance”.

Bernard Williams


“Summer is a promissory note signed in June, its long days spent and gone before you know it, and due to be repaid next January”.

Hal Borland


“Spring being a tough act to follow, God created June“.

Al Bernstein


“Summer is not obligatory. We can start an infernally hard jigsaw puzzle in June with the knowledge that, if there are enough rainy days, we may just finish it by Labor Day, but if not, there’s no harm, no penalty. We may have better things to do”.

Nancy Gibbs



“All June I bound the rose in sheaves, Now, rose by rose, I strip the leaves”.

Robert Browning


“To read a poem in January is as lovely as to go for a walk in June“.

Jean-Paul Sartre


“It is the month of June,

The month of leaves and roses,

When pleasant sights salute the eyes,

And pleasant scents the noses”.

Nathaniel Parker Willis


“He was but as the cuckoo is in June,

Heard, not regarded”.

William Shakespeare


“In June, as many as a dozen species may burst their buds on a single day. No man can heed all of these anniversaries; no man can ignore all of them”.

Aldo Leopold


“It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside”.

Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib, 1941


“There are two seasons in Scotland: June and Winter”.

Billy Connolly
