We reap and we sow,
an emergence of pleasure.
The harvest begins.
– Upon Learning, by Melissa Schwartz
The thankful receiver bears a plentiful harvest.
– William Blake
It is only the farmer who faithfully plants seeds in the Spring,
who reaps a harvest in the Autumn.
– B. C. Forbes
The law of harvest is to reap more than you sow.
Sow an act, and you reap a habit.
Sow a habit and you reap a character.
Sow a character and you reap a destiny.
– James Allen
In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
– William Blake
Under the summer roses
When the flagrant crimson
Lurks in the dusk
Of the wild red leaves,
Love, with little hands,
Comes and touches you
With a thousand memories,
And asks you
Beautiful, unanswerable questions.
– Under The Harvest Moon
– Carl Sandburg
Wake up now, look alive,
for here is a day off work just to praise Creation:
the turkey, the squash, and the corn,
these things that ate and drank sunshine, grass, mud, and rain,
and then in the shortening days laid down their
lives for our welfare and onward resolve. . .
Thanksgiving is Creation’s birthday party.
Praise harvest, a pause and sign on the breath of immortality.
– Barbara Kingsolver

love your photo essays. You bring us an appreciation for all we have on this beautiful planet.
You contribute to a better world, Steve McCurry.
Thanks for sharing this post with us ❤
Lovely and wonderful photos really. They really tells the story. It´s amazing this style of Steve to take photos. Just in right place, right moment and right light. They looks so nice. It´s so great pleasure to receive email from this blog.
Looking at your pictures, I have all your books, I not only get an experience of the beauty of daily live all over the world but also more understanding for the people, subject of your eye and camera. You make the world a bit more livible despite of all the misery and despoot that so many people have to live in. Gives a bit of hope.
Loss of words. That’s what Steve McCurry does. Each snap can render you speechless. My mentor in photography. My prostration.
Fall harvest was next year’s life for my grandparents in Canada. Your photos bring back their struggle for family and survival !
Wonderful – as always.
This was a nice reminder to appreciate the food that ends up on my plate.
Absolutely beautiful! The joy of abundance, the promise of sustenance, the realities of fickle yet hoped for harvest. Fabulous! Thank you for sharing this, and may those who sow, reap fair benefits.

“The best lie someone can tell you is that you will have a bumper harvest when you didn’t plant any seed.”
I am thankful for your photographs and quotes that welcome the larger world.
I totally agree!
Love them all.
