All I can say is…finally!
After April snowfalls, a roller coaster of fluctuating temperatures, frosty mornings and bone-chilling nights, I think it’s safe to say spring has finally arrived in my neck of the woods.
If you’ve been a long-time reader of Mama’s Empty Nest, you’ll know that I sign off my posts with a quotation. It’s my thing. I love quotes. I keep them. I write them down and stash them away in a notebook.
And now, my thing is Spring. And for those of you living in the northern hemisphere of this orb we call earth, I want to encourage and inspire you to embrace the renewal of life we see in the erupting season of Spring.
We’ve all had a long season of winter’s oppression. It’s time to rejoice and break free from its grip.
So here’s a list of some springtime quotes that I enjoy. May they put a smile on your face and a spring in your step. (See what I did there? 😊 )
“April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” ~ William Shakespeare
“Spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm.” ~ John Muir
“Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.” ~ W. Earl Hall
“The point is that the pleasures of spring are available to everybody, and cost nothing.” ~ George Orwell
“Spring: the music of open windows.” ~ Terri Guillemets
“The beautiful spring came, and when nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also.” ~ Harriet Ann Jacobs
“Spring is painted in daffodil yellows, robin egg blues, new grass green and the brightness of hope for a better life.” ~ Toni Sorenson

“Life stands before me like an eternal spring with new and brilliant clothes.” ~ Carl Friedrich Gauss
“Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.” ~ Virgil A. Kraft
And finally, this last quote that I’m signing off with describes me perfectly right now. Perhaps you can identify with it as well.
“Spring won’t let me stay in this house any longer! I must get out and breathe the air deeply again.” ~ Gustav Mahler
