Hot weather is in full swing, and there's no better way to savor the season than by plunging into some July Quotes. As the sun stays longer in the sky, the seventh month offers us the perfect opportunity to bask in the warmth and excitement. 

The legendary Roman general and statesman, Julius Caesar, inspired July's name, as he was born this month and initiated its renaming. Caesar's influence caused the Roman calendar to transition from ten to twelve months, with July, formerly Quintilis, marking the fifth month. Following Caesar's death in 44 BC, the month permanently adopted his name to celebrate his legacy. Whenever you flip your calendar to July, remember to thank Julius Caesar for its existence.

Now that this month's history is out of the way, let's feel the vibes of the seventh month through the following July quotes.
