William James once said, “In the dim background of our mind, we know what we ought to be doing but somehow we cannot start.”
That’s sort of how the end of winter feels. You can sense the change coming, but it isn’t here yet and it is intensely frustrating.
Here are some more quotes to help you remember that spring will come and, with it, a release from the cold, gray, extra-layers-of-sweaters existence you’ve been plodding through for the last few months.
“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.” – Yoko Ono
“Spring is the only revolutionary whose revolution has succeeded.” – Marianne Van Hirtum
“Never cut down a tree in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.” – Robert H Schuller
“Spring is nature’s way of saying ‘Let’s party!’” – Robin Williams
“In the spring I have counted 136 different types of weather inside of 24 hours.” – Mark Twain
“The true harbinger of spring is not the crocuses or swallows returning to Capistrano but the sound of the bat on the ball.” – Bill Veeck
“A little madness in the spring is wholesome even for the King.” – Emily Dickinson
“Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.” – Doug Larson
“Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wonderous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again.” – Sarah Ban Breathnach
“Spring is God’s way of saying ‘one more time!’” – Robert Orben
Don’t worry, going-stir-crazy-readers. Spring will be along soon enough!
