Sit still and disengage normal activities.
Draw energy from the earth,
Admit power from the heavens.
Fertilize the seed within;
Let it sprout into a flower of pure light.
~ Deng Ming-Dao, 365 Tao: Daily Meditations
Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring?
~ Neltje Blanchan
Spring work is going on with joyful enthusiasm.
~ John Muir
We are not separate from this Earth; we are a part of it, whether we fully feel it in our bodies yet or not.
~ Sharon Blackie, If Women Rose Rooted
Spring: When you realize you are allergic to all the things you love.
Spring: When your nose does more running than you do.
Tissues: My favorite springtime fashion accessory.
~ From Woman’s World magazine (Funny spring quotes)
If humans evolved in a tiny area of Africa, they only saw plants and animals within a 100-kilometre radius for a million years. When they began to migrate, there would have been different animals and plants — and potentially a lot of allergy issues.
~ Barry Marshall
A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and at such a speed, it feels an impulsion… this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reason and the patterns behind all clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond horizons.
~ Richard Bach
When all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring.
~ Madeleine M. Kunin
The Moments You Have Lived
As essence turns to ocean,
the particles glisten.
Watch how in this candleflame instant
blaze all the moments you have lived.
