“Every Man Makes His Own Summer.”

“Every man makes his own summer. The season has no character of its own, unless one is a farmer with a professional concern for the weather. Circumstances have not allowed me to make a good summer for myself this year…My summer has been overcast by my own heaviness of spirit. I have not had any adventures, and adventures are what make a summer.”
-- Robertson Davies, “Three Worlds, Three Summers,” The Enthusiasms of Robertson Davies
