And then again Instantly on the wing.

When brooks send up a cheerful tune,

The sexton’s hand, my grave to make,
The rich, green mountain-turf should break.

Mainstream Jewish intellectuals became ‘pro’-Israel after the June 1967 war when Israel became the U.S.A.’ s strategic asset in the Middle East, i.e., when it was safe and reaped benefits. To credit them with ideological conviction is, in my opinion, very naive.

Jeff Dunham
On June 3, 2015, in keeping with a long tradition, I visited my home club in the Pepper Pike suburb of Cleveland, known simply as The Country Club. It’s an old William Flynn design and perhaps the most underrated course in America. It’s elegant, challenging and filled with old-world charm.
Jim Nantz
Every June, Gypsies come in caravans from all over Europe to honor Django Reinhardt at a festival in Samois-sur-Seine. When I was little, I started hanging out with them. They fascinated me – they really, literally, live in the moment. They take every day as if it’s their last.

‘Bout the time strewberries melts
On the vine.

Edward Said
If you go far enough out you can see the Universe itself, all the billion light years summed up time only as a flash, just as lonely, as distant as a star on a June night if you go far enough out. And still, my friend, if you go far enough out you are only at the beginning – of yourself.
Rolf Jacobsen
June 1st is a date that is looming in everybody’s mind with the final enforcement of the UIGEA. I actually think it may, finally, once and for all prove that it’s an ineffective law. Congress created that law and now Congress has to do something to correct it.
John Pappas
It was June 4, 1979, the first time I went on stage. I didn’t know I could do it but I knew I couldn’t not do it. I quit everything in my life and this was the one thing I couldn’t quit.

Woody Allen
O Winter! frozen pulse and heart of fire,

Of death! Far sooner in midsummer tire
The streams than under ice. June could not hire
Her roses to forego the strength they learn
In sleeping on thy breast.
Helen Hunt Jackson

My love runs by like a day in June, And he makes no friends of sorrows. He’ll tread his galloping rigadoon In the pathway of the morrows. He’ll live his days where the sunbeams start, Nor could storm or wind uproot him. My own dear love, he is all my heart, — And I wish somebody’d shoot him.
Dorothy Parker
If somebody had said to me in June or July of 1987, ‘We’d like you to become chairman of the Federal Reserve, but you’re never allowed to discuss any economics after you leave,’ I’d have said, ‘Forget it.’ What do they want me to do? Become an anthropologist?’
Alan Greenspan
I’ve known my lady (for she loves a tune) For fevers take an opera in June: And, though perhaps you’ll think the practice bold, A midnight park is sov’reign for a cold.
Edward Young
Donald Trump is sounding the same theme he has sounded since May or June of 2015.
Mark Shields
The word survivor suggests someone who has emerged alive from a plane crash or a natural disaster. But the word can also refer to the loved ones of murder victims, and this was the sense in which it was used at a four-day conference in early June at Boston College.
Godfried Danneels
Those three years ended with June 1933. At that time I left Princeton, having submitted my Ph.D. thesis.
Stephen Cole Kleene
June Jordan, who died of cancer in 2002, was a brilliant, fierce, radical, and frequently furious poet. We were friends for thirty years. Not once in that time did she step back from what was transpiring politically and morally in the world. She spoke up, and led her students, whom she adored, to do the same.
Alice Walker
It is dry, hazy June weather. We are more of the earth, farther from heaven these days.
Henry David Thoreau
What joy have I in June’s return?
My feet are parched-my eyeballs burn,
I scent no flowery gust;
But faint the flagging zephyr springs,
With dry Macadam on its wings,
And turns me ‘dust to dust.’
Thomas Hood
We start ‘The Butler’ in June and that’s incredibly exciting for me because I get to work with the amazing Forest Whitaker again. It’s a phenomenal script and a great, great role – I play his son. Oprah Winfrey is his wife and my mother. My character is a radical civil rights activist.
David Oyelowo
Everything in nature is lyrical in its ideal essence, tragic in its fate, and comic in its existence.
George Santayana
Acting had been a hobby that turned into a career, the directing was a hobby that turned into a career, and music just really allowed me to find another way to express myself. I started playing bass in November 1996, and by June 1998 I was doing my first live show.
Malcolm-Jamal Warner
A cold in the head in June is an immoral thing.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
One week before my 17th birthday, I had a blind date with June Rose, a television actress on network soap operas, a model, and a regular on the popular Dick Clark’s Saturday night ‘American Bandstand’ show from New York. We were married five years later, one week after my graduation from Columbia.
Robert C. Merton
Dirty days hath September
April June and November
From January up to May
The rain it raineth every day
All the rest have thirty-one
Without a blessed gleam of sun
And if any of them had two-and-thirty
They’d be just as wet and twice as dirty.”
“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.
William Shakespeare
We can’t sit back and celebrate Martin King and ask when will there be another like him. No, no my dear young friends. We must join our voices with that blessed poet June Jordan and demonstrate that ‘we are the ones we’ve been waiting for.’
Vincent Harding
We opened Panda Inn on June 8, 1973. The whole family – my parents, a brother and sister – all worked at the restaurant for free. We lived in a two-bedroom apartment in San Gabriel and didn’t have any money.
Andrew Cherng
That’s life (that’s life), that’s what all the people say
You’re ridin’ high in April, shot down in May
But I know I’m gonna change that tune
When I’m back on top, back on top in June
Frank Sinatra
I get older I get more cantankerous, but June [Hillary] gets a bit more cantankerous, too.
Edmund Hillary
I don’t know if there are many misconceptions. One is that my birthday is on Valentine’s Day. It’s on 7 June.
Helen Baxendale
It is June. I am tired of being brave.
Anne Sexton
The world is wide; no two days are alike, nor even two hours; neither were there ever two leaves of a tree alike since the creation of the world; and the genuine productions of art, like those of nature, are all distinct from one another.
John Constable
June has never looked more beautiful than she does now, unadorned and honest, vulnerable yet invincible.
Marie Lu
But in vain she did conjure him, To depart her presence so, Having a thousand tongues t’ allure him And but one to bid him go. When lips invite, And eyes delight, And cheeks as fresh as rose in June, Persuade delay,– What boots to say Forego me now, come to me soon.
Walter Raleigh
June is the gateway to summer.
Jean Hersey
On June 23, 1864, Ambrose Bierce was in command of a skirmish line of Union soldiers at Kennesaw Mountain in northern Georgia. He’d been a soldier for three years and, in that time, had been commended by his superiors for his efficiency and bravery during battle.
Victor LaValle
In the course of my life, for more than half a century, June 1989 was the major turning point. Up to that point, I was a member of the first class to enter university when college entrance examinations were reinstated following the Cultural Revolution (Class of ’77).
Liu Xiaobo
Green was the silence, wet was the light, the month of June trembled like a butterfly.
Pablo Neruda
I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.
Lucy Maud Montgomery
I was born in June, so I like summer, and my favourite part of a sunny day is when the sun sets.
Jorja Smith
June falls asleep upon her bier of flowers;
In vain are dewdrops sprinkled o’er her,
In vain would fond winds fan her back to life,
Her hours are numbered on the floral dial.
Lucy Larcom
I know April, May and June are a few unbearable months, and working out in a gym and sweating in such dirty hot, sticky, humid weather puts me off. The best way is to swim. I feel so fresh and rejuvenated after swimming, and I believe it’s one of the best mode to fitness during summers.
Ashish Sharma
In June 2002, I had just finished ‘Laurel Canyon’ and decided to move back to Los Angeles after nearly a decade in New York. Post-9/11 New York felt different.
Lisa Cholodenko
David Ben-Gurion established the Israeli intelligence community in June of 1948, just three weeks after the establishment of Israel and in the midst of war.
Ronen Bergman
I pray that the life of this spring and summer may ever lie fair in my memory.
Henry David Thoreau
My mother was born in 1953, my brother was born in 1983, and I was born in 1993. Then, my Mum passed away on June 3 at 10:23 P.M. in 2013. Since then, I’d see threes everywhere.
Amber Mark
The best part about Maui is that I can spend a lot of time outside. My off-season is April, May, and June.
Julia Mancuso
There is a Zone whose even Years
No Solstice interrupt –
Whose Sun constructs perpetual Noon
Whose perfect Seasons wait –
Whose Summer set in Summer, till
The Centuries of June
And Centuries of August cease
And Consciousness – is Noon.
Emily Dickinson
The flowers are Nature’s jewels, with whose wealth she decks her summer beauty.
George Croly
Oh my luve’s like a red, red rose,
That’s newly sprung in June;
Oh my luve’s like the melodie
That’s sweetly played in tune.
Robert Burns
The things we do at Christmas are touched with a certain extravagance, as beautiful, in some of its aspects, as the extravagance of nature in June.
Robert Collyer
My job is to coach the team and get them to try to play the best they can come April, May, and June.
Nick Nurse
[Donald] Trump was born on June 14, 1946, less than a year after the first and, thus far, only nuclear weapons were used in war.
David Krieger
We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California.
Hillary Clinton
Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer’s year. It brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul.
Billy Graham
Playing into June is the best thing.
Nick Young
I had forgotten what mustard fields looked like… Sheet upon sheet of blazing yellow, half way between sulphur and celandine, with hot golden sunshine pouring down upon them out of a dazzling June sky. It thrilled me like music.
Monica Baldwin
If surrender could have been brought about in May, 1945, or even in June or July, before the entrance of Soviet Russia into the [Pacific] war and the use of the atomic bomb, the world would have been the gainer.
Joseph Grew
I did a film that was similar to that world, which was Brotherly Love, and the audience fell in love with [my character] June. So to be honest, I remembered what I did in that movie and studied that film and my mannerisms while shooting in Philly.
Cory Hardrict
To play June, I had an immediate connect with her background and culture. We grew up with the same religion and shared a lot of the same values of family and spirituality. But I was really so inspired by what a modern woman she was.
Reese Witherspoon
Tell you what I like the best –
‘Long about knee-deep in June,
‘Bout the time strawberries melts
On the vine, – some afternoon
Like to jes’ git out and rest,
And not work at nothin’ else!
James Whitcomb Riley
My life, I realize suddenly, is July. Childhood is June, and old age is August, but here it is, July, and my life, this year, is July inside of July.
