Sitting quietly, doing nothing,
Spring comes, and the grass grows by itself.
Every spring is the only spring - a perpetual astonishment.
The year's at the spring,
And day's at the morn;
Morning's at seven;
The hill-side's dew-pearl'd;
The lark's on the wing;
The snail's on the thorn;
God's in His heaven--
All's right with the world!
Song from Pippa Passes.
Spring unlocks the flowers to paint the laughing soil.
Bishop Reginald Heber
Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world.
Virgil A. Kraft
Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
Listen, can you hear it? Spring's sweet cantata. The strains of grass pushing through the snow. The song of buds swelling on the vine. The tender timpani of a baby robin's heart. Spring.
Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Northern Exposure, Wake Up Call, 1992.
All through the long winter, I dream of my garden. On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth. I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar.
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils.

Tom Sawyer, Detective.
April is the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

The Waste Land.
Springtime is the land awakening.
The March winds are the morning yawn.
Quoted in Kathy Sue Loudermilk, I Love You.
Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.
A little Madness in the Spring
Is wholesome even for the King.

People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.
The beauteous eyes of the spring's fair night
With comfort are downward gazing.
No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.
Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.

The passing spring
With tearful eyes.
Is it so small a thing
To have enjoy'd the sun,
To have lived light in the spring,
To have loved, to have thought, to have done.
From the Hymn of Empedocles.
In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
Spring has come when you can put your foot on three daisies.
The first pale blossom of the unripened year.
