Thursday Thirteen #56: Spring!


Thursday Thirteen


This Saturday marks the first day of spring. I have been looking forward to it and am happily anticipating the beautiful day that's been forecast. Here are some spring quotes to set the mood:

Thirteen Spring Quotes


1. It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens

2. It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain

3. Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" ~Robin Williams

4. Hoe while it is spring, and enjoy the best anticipations. It is not much matter if things do not turn out well. ~Charles Dudley Warner

5. 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. ~Anne Bradstreet

6. Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush. ~Doug Larson

7. No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. ~Proverb

8. Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day. ~W. Earl Hall

9. Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world. ~Virgil A. Kraft

10. First a howling blizzard woke us,
Then the rain came down to soak us,
And now before the eye can focus -
Crocus. ~Lilja Rogers

11. The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
~Robert Frost

12. I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring. Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature's rebirth? ~Edward Giobbi

13. In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours. ~Mark Twain

That really does sound like Robin Williams!

It didn't get as warm here as I'd expected... I had to take my shorts off and put jeans on instead. Typical spring: nothing but a tease.

"summer in the light and winter in the shade". That is a perfect description. Leave it to Dickens.

These are beautiful quotes of spring. I like no. 8 and understood Robert Frost's quote only when I was traipsing London in April a few years back.

Lol, I did the spring quotes last week, but you have some other quotes too. I see that spring is there because all dogs try to escape their gardens and walk alone looking for a female, lol !
