Spring is here, officially. We can say good-bye to the cold, snowy months of winter. March 20 is the Spring Equinox and the time of the year that we think about storing our winter gear and spring cleaning. What better way to celebrate spring than with a collection of spring quotes from great voices throughout time.
No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. Proverb
Sitting quietly, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself. Zen Proverb
“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” From Meditations Divine and Moral Anne Bradstreet, The Works of Anne Bradstreet
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” Margaret Atwood, Bluebeard’s Egg
“Spring is the time of plans and projects.” Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
“Spring drew on…and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.” Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
“Spring is when life’s alive in everything.” Christina Rossetti
“The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful.” E.E. Cummings
“The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.” Henry Van Dyke
