"Spring is a time for rebirth and the fulfillment of new life."
"It can't be spring if your heart is filled with past failures."
"Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"
"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade."
"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt."
"Look forward to spring as a time when you can start to see what nature has to offer once again."
"I think that no matter how old or infirm I may become, I will always plant a large garden in the spring. Who can resist the feelings of hope and joy that one gets from participating in nature's rebirth?"
"No wonder we're so anxious to get outdoors and back into the mud come spring."
