The Best Literary Quotes About Spring

  1. You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep Spring from coming. ~Pablo Neruda
  2. I suppose the best kind of spring morning is the best weather God has to offer. ~Dodie Smith
  3. When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself. ~Ernest Hemingway
  4. At the best of times, spring hurts depressives.~Angela Carter
  5. The time of dangling insects arrived. White houses with caterpillars dangling from the eaves. White stones in driveways. You can walk at night down the middle of the street and hear women talking on the telephone. Warmer weather produces voices in the dark. They are talking about their adolescent sons. How big, how fast. The sons are almost frightening. The quantities they eat. The way they loom in doorways. These are the days that are full of wormy bugs. They are in the grass, stuck to the siding, hanging in the hair, hanging from the trees and eaves, stuck to the window screens. The women talk long-distance to grandparents of growing boys. They share the Trimline phone, beamish old folks in hand-knit sweaters on fixed incomes. What happens to them when the commercial ends? ~Don DeLillo
  6. An optimist is the human personification of spring. ~Susan J. Bissonette
  7. Beautiful was Colleton in her last spring as she flung azaleas like a girl throwing rice at a desperate wedding. In dazzling profusion, Colleton ripened in a gauze of sweet gardens and the town ached beneath a canopy of promissory fragrance. ~Pat Conroy
  8. In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. ~Margaret Atwood
  9. I am going to try to pay attention to the spring. I am going to look around at all the flowers, and look up at the hectic trees. I am going to close my eyes and listen. ~Anne Lamott
  10. Poor, dear, silly Spring, preparing her annual surprise! ~Wallace Stevens
  11. Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colours, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. ~Rainer Maria Rilke
  12. Hope sleeps in our bones like a bear waiting for spring to rise and walk. ~Marge Piercy
  13. What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again. ~Suzanne Collins
  14. Every year, back comes Spring, with nasty little birds yapping their fool heads off and the ground all mucked up with plants. ~Dorothy Parker
  15. Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens
  16. As you get older, the heart shed its leaves like a tree. You cannot hold out against certain winds. Each day tears away a few more leaves; and then there are the storms that break off several branches at one go. And while nature’s greenery grows back again in the spring, that of the heart never grows back. ~Gustave Flaubert
  17. It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain
  18. Spring is when life’s alive in everything. ~Christina Rossetti
