Thoughts for Thursday--Spring

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is spring

In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.--Margaret Atwood, Bluebeard's Egg

"Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...                                            "It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine..."--Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.--Virgil Kraft

Can words describe the fragrance of every breath of spring?--Neltje Blanchan

The deep roots never doubt spring will come.--Marty Rubin

April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.--William Shakespeare, Sonnet 98

Which is your favorite quote about spring? Do you have one to contribute?


  1. God does work miracles in the Spring. I'm not keen on getting dirty though.

  2. Shakespeare always did have a way with words.

  3. I'm truly honored to see one of my aphorisms in such distinguished company. Thank you.-Marty Rubin

  4. Lovely idea to post quotes on a theme. I collect quotes as I know many people do as well.

    One of my fave Spring quotes is as follows:
    Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" ~Robin Williams
