10 Delightful Quotes for Lovers of Spring

Amy Angelilli spent most of winter longing for spring—she’s not the only one! Looking at these quotes for spring, it’s clear this season is for lovers.

I had foot surgery a week before the official first day of winter. My thinking was that since I’m a homebody in winter, it would be a good time to lay low and heal. The theory was dead on, however, the reality was just a bit different.

Usually I slog through winter. This winter I literally sat through it and stared out the window—day in and day out I waited, not so patiently, for my foot to heal, for the days to become longer and brighter, for the temperatures to go up. It was the longest winter I have ever experienced.

Because it was so mentally—and physically—brutal, I began counting down to spring long before its arrival. In doing so, I wondered how others responded to the season of rebirth and discovery. Turns out I was far from alone in my anticipation of spring. Enjoy these quotes and perhaps keep one that really resonates tucked away, so that when next winter lingers, you’re happily inspired to count down to spring’s arrival.
