“The groundhog didn’t see his shadow!” That was one of the best things I heard in recent times. Ah, spring is near. It’s not just the season of beautiful crisp blue skies, warm days and balmy evenings, but on a deeper level
spring signifies rebirth, renewal and hope as demonstrated in these inspiring spring quotes. Philosophers, thinkers and writers have continued to use the metaphor of spring to explain the power of remaining positive and optimistic when things go downhill. I love this collection of motivational spring quotes that urges us to hold on to positivity. After all, like Shelley said “O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?”
