We haven’t had a quote post in a while. We’ve been focusing on reading the rainbow, and that’s been a lot of fun, but today, since the official first day of spring just recently passed, I thought I’d share spring quotes from books with you!
Scroll down to the end of the post to add your bookish links to the Lit Lover’s link-up!
These are some of my favorite spring quotes from books.
“Spring is the time of plans and projects.”
― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”
― Margaret Atwood, Bluebeard’s Egg
“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
“She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
“Winter is dead.”
― A.A. Milne, When We Were Very Young
“If people did not love one another, I really don’t see what use there would be in having any spring.”
― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“I suppose the best kind of spring morning is the best weather God has to offer.”
― Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle
Spring begins blossom by blossom.”
― Christina Bartolomeo, Snowed In: A Novel
“Green is the soul of Spring. Summer may be dappled with yellow, Autumn with orange and Winter with white but Spring is drenched with the colour green.”
― Paul F. Kortepeter, Tea with Victoria Rose
“A tree can be tempted out of its winter dormancy by a few hours of southerly sun—the readiness to believe in spring is stronger than sleep or sanity.”
― Amy Leach, Things That Are
“I hear the sounds of melting snow outside my window every night and with the first faint scent of spring, I remember life exists…”
― John Geddes, A Familiar Rain
“But now it was spring again, and spring was almost unbearable for sensitive hearts. It drove creation to its utmost limits, it wafted its spice-laden breath even into the nostrils of the innocent.”
― Knut Hamsun, Dreamers
