Spring Forth

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.
I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden. Ruth Stout U.S. author

When Spring unlocks the flowers to paint the laughing soil.
Bishop Reginald Heber, Source: Hymn for Seventh Sunday after Trinity

If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. I would go to more dances. I would ride more merry-go-rounds. I would pick more daisies.
attributed to Nadine Stair

Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again.
Sarah Ban Breathnach

The splendor of the rose and the whitness of the lily do not rob the little violet of itís scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its lovliness.
Therese of Lisieux

Every spring is the only spring - a perpetual astonishment.  Ellis Peters
