È rosa la pietra del Subasio:
Te lo dice quella cosa
piccola, che è l'eremo di S. Elia.
E anche il sole, che sul piccolo cubo rosa
si posa
e gioisce. Intorno, un giardino
di papaveri e grano
e lui si posa piano
sulle bianche aiuole
di margherite al sole.

In confronto ad altre regioni d'Italia,
l'Umbria può apparire troppo raccolta in sè,
troppo avvolta nel silenzio,
troppo pura o "contemplativa".
Ma c'è una forza dentro
(A. Capitini)

Fino a dove arriva lo sguardo,
si vedono vigneti sorretti dagli olmi,
e soprattutto sui pendii l'olivo grigio,
il cui pallore argenteo quasi lunare,
ben si accorda con la dolcezza del cielo... proprio la vigna e l'olivo
danno al paesaggio umbro il suo fascino sereno e tenero
(R. Schneider)

Tornare ad apprezzare la tavola, non solo per quello che offre,
ma anche per le opportunità che attorno ad essa si creano:
in Umbria mangiare è un momento importante nel quale ciascuno arricchisce se stesso,
scopre di poter conversare e si riappropria di una parte del proprio tempo,
disperso con troppa indifferenza e troppa fretta nelle frenetiche metropoli

Montefargu è 'na forte e bella valia
che t'allatta e te da sugu divinu,
un latte arinomatu in tutta Italia,
un latte che se chiama Sacrantinu
e, dello, sughi sempre e vai a risusci...
finchè li nasi non se fanno rusci
