Spring is in the air! Famous quotes about springtime




Today we can officially wave goodbye to the winter blues and welcome -warmly-the arrival of spring!   It might still be cold, it might still be wet, but the evenings are lengthening by the rooster's step (as my Grandad would put it) and the eternal optimism of spring is in the air.  It's in my step too :) 


For me Spring is about getting back outdoors, taking weekend mini-breaks and planning for your summer trips....all of which will be covered here on The Top Tips for Trips Blog over the coming months.  If you still have one foot stuck in winter then have a read of these famous seasonal quotes...they might help you get a spring back in your step like they did for me!  Enjoy! 



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


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


Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.  
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

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


The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hillside's dew-pearled;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in His heaven -
All's right with the world!

Robert Browning



And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.

Percy Bysshe Shelley, "The Sensitive Plant"



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

Robert Frost




Spring is nature's way of saying Let's Party.
 Robin williams

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


If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. 
Terri Guillemets


April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.  
William Shakespeare
