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



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


Spring has returned.  The Earth is like a child that knows poems.  
~ Rainer Maria Rilke


"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." 
~ Audra Fuveo


"To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring — these are some of the rewards of the simple life."
~ John Burroughs


“Waking up in the morning, I vow with all beings to be ready for sparks of the Dharma from flowers or children or birds.”
~ Robert Aitken


"Sitting quietly, doing nothing,
Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself."
~ The Gospel According To Zen


"Happiness?  The color of it must be spring green, impossible to describe until I see a just-hatched lizard sunning on a stone.  That color, the glowing green lizard skin, repeats in every new leaf.   ...  The regenerative power of nature explodes in every weed, stalk, branch.  Working in the mild sun, I feel the green fuse of my body, too.  Surges of energy, kaleidoscopic sunlight through the leaves, the soft breeze that makes me want to say the word "zephyr" - this mindless simplicity can be called happiness."
~ Frances, Mayes, Bella Tuscany: The Sweet Life in Italy, 1999
