Thursday Thirteen


Forsythia
 It is spring. So here are quotes about this particular season, stolen from this site and this site:


1. O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?  - Percy Bysshe Shelley

2. Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems. - Rainer Maria Rilke

3. The year's at the spring/ And day's at the morn;/ Morning's at seven;/ The hillside's dew-pearled;/ The lark's on the wing;/ The snail's on the thorn;/ God's in His heaven/ - All's right with the world! - Robert Browning

4. 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

5. April hath put a spirit of youth in everything. - William Shakespeare

From Spring 2007

6. Now every field is clothed with grass, and every tree with leaves; now the woods put forth their blossoms, and the year assumes its gay attire. - Virgil

7. If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall. - Nadine Stair

8. In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt. - Margaret Atwood

Daffodils
9. He that is in a towne in May loseth his spring. - George Herbert

10. Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. - Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke

11. Autumn arrives in early morning, but spring at the close of a winter day. -Elizabeth Bowen

12. Every spring is the only spring, a perpetual astonishment. - Ellis Peters



Thursday Thirteen is played by lots of people; there is a list here.  I've been playing for a while and this is my 183rd time to do a list of 13 on a Thursday.

  3. If Spring has sprung, someone forgot to tell Mother Nature. We got TONS of snow over the past couple of days.
    Love pics of spring daffodils though.
    Happy T13!

  6. I love the new hope new growth and spirit of spring. Unfortunately I really get spring fever. Chinese medicine practitioners call them tidal fevers. As the sap and shoots rise so does my temperature.
