I can smell autumn dancing in the breeze. The sweet chill of pumpkin, and crisp sunburnt leaves. Ann Drake

It was time to take the pumpkin out of the pot and eat it. In the final analysis, that was what solved these big problems of life.

The pumpkin itself is a symbol for mortality. Seth Adam Smith

October, tuck tiny candy bars in my pockets and carve my smile into a thousand pumpkins. Rainbow Rowell

The pumpkin itself is a symbol for mortality. Like mortals, the pumpkin seed is planted in the darkness of the earth, where it is left to search for the light. When the plant finally sprouts, it travels along the ground, as if in search of its place in the world. Then, once the pumpkin has found its place, it blossoms into a fruit that towers above all others. And when the pumpkin is ripe, it’s a veritable life giving force. Seth Adam Smith

I suppose I will die never knowing what pumpkin pie tastes like when you have room for it. Robert Breault

There will be a cauldron of spiced hot cider, and pumpkin shortbread fingers with caramel and fudge dipping sauces as our freebies, and I’ve done plenty of special spooky treats. Ladies fingers, butter cookies the shape of gnarled fingers with almond fingernails and red food coloring on the stump end. I’ve got meringue ghosts and cups of graveyard pudding, a dark chocolate pudding layered with dark Oreo cookie crumbs, strewn with gummy worms, and topped with a cookie tombstone. There are chocolate tarantulas, with mini cupcake bodies and legs made out of licorice whips, sitting on spun cotton candy nests. The PopTart flavors of the day are chocolate peanut butter, and pumpkin spice. The chocolate ones are in the shape of bats, and the pumpkin ones in the shape of giant candy corn with orange, yellow, and white icing. And yesterday, after finding a stash of tiny walnut sized lady apples at the market, I made a huge batch of mini caramel apples. Stacey Ballis

Way out in the country tonight he could smell the pumpkins ripening toward the knife and the triangle eye and the singeing candle. Ray Bradbury

There were things that Pumpkin Head now not Pumpkin Head anymore had to do to be a girl. He had to be careful how he dressed, and how he acted. He had to be careful how he talked, and he always had to be calm. He was very frightened of what would happen if he didn’t stay calm. For his face was really just a wonderful plastic one. The real Pumpkin Head was still inside, locked in, waiting to come out. Al Sarrantonio

I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.  Henry David Thoreau

Even though Clover City feels like one big joke sometimes, it’s my joke. My charming joke of a town that thrives on beauty pageants and dance teams and a football team that couldn’t figure out how to win a game if the other team had forfeited, but underneath it all, it’s more than that small-town stereotype. It’s a shithole. But it’s my little shithole. Julie Murphy

I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion. Henry David Thoreau

Ah, furchte fruchte, timid Danaides! Ena milo melomon, frai is frau and swee is too, swee is two when swoo is free, ana mala woe is we! A pair of sycopanties with amygdaleine eyes, one old obster lumpky pumpkin and three meddlars on their slies. James Joyce

Why not imagine a talk with a pumpkin? Why not imagine going off for a drive with a friendly pumpkin, a companion who would not, after all, answer back; who would agree with everything you said, and would at the end of the day appear on your plate as a final gesture of friendship? Alexander McCall Smith

I’d bet most of America’s refrigerators have leftover pumpkin pie on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It’s delicious the first couple of times you eat it, but then what? Steve Doocy

Behind the counter, I placed the pre sliced pumpkin cheesecake with caramel pecan topping into the refrigerated glass display case. My cheesecakes were a thing of beauty. The delicate, spicy ginger cookie crust gave the bottom a nice firm bite at the end of the airy whipped cream cheese filling. It boggled my mind as to why people only indulged in delicious pumpkin once a year. Not at our diner. You could get a cup of pumpkin and black bean soup with lump crabmeat or shrimp, or a spiced pumpkin muffin, on certain days of the week throughout the year. We attempted to rotate our daily offerings to keep them fresh and desirable. Kate Young

Instead of doing cinnamon, nutmeg, and all those baking spices I’ll have one spice that’s for sweets, and that’s pumpkin pie spice. Sandra Lee

We stuck with the traditional Äpple Munk and the favorite munkhål, but we also added a seasonal one I’d been working on in Mrs. Bixler’s room during this dramatic lull in school apple leftovers. I’d perfected a pumpkin cream cheese filling to go with a cinnamon sugar coating. It was like if pumpkin pie and donuts had a baby, and that baby turned out to be the Chosen One from the prophecy. Pumpamunk. Jared Reck

I’m half Japanese, so I collect toys, like a Yayoi Kusama stuffed pumpkin. Nicola Formichetti

When the world isn’t selling what you’re looking to buy, you just have to take it upon yourself to cut your own pattern. Julie Murphy

Miraculously, smoke curled out of his own mouth, his nose, his ears, his eyes, as if his soul had been extinguished within his lungs at the very moment the sweet pumpkin gave up its incensed ghost. Ray Bradbury

The great thing about candy is that it can’t be spoiled by the adult world. Candy is innocent. And all Halloween candy pales next to candy corn, if only because candy corn used to appear, like the Great Pumpkin, solely on Halloween. Rosecrans Baldwin

And she needed to surf some of the pregnancy websites she’d found when she first realized she was pregnant. Her friends with kids said there was lots of good information available on the sites. But had they meant the slideshow labeled Poppy seed to pumpkin how big is your baby? Imagining her unborn child as an ear of corn was odd enough. But would she ever get used to the thought that by the end of this pregnancy, she’d be carrying around something someone the size of a small pumpkin? Beth K. Vogt

Make pumpkin bread as the default gift for everyone. It is cheap, it is beloved, it is carbs. Karen Bender

Cause I’m Peter, Peter the Pumpkin Eater And the party has just begun. Garth Brooks

I always wanted to have a scenario where the guy didn’t have my number, but I had his. What if women make the first move, send the first message? And if they don’t, the match disappears after 24 hours, like in Cinderella, the pumpkin and the carriage? It’d be symbolic of a Sadie Hawkins dance going after it, girls ask first. Whitney Wolfe Herd
