Last year I wrote a post containing my favorite quotes from Irish authors in honor of St. Patrick’s day, and now this year I’ve compiled some of my favorite quotes about Spring!
My birthday falls on the first day of spring, plus I’m from the midwest and the winters here are so horribly dreadful, so I may be biased about this season, but I do find so much joy in the spring. It makes me so happy to know I am not alone in the literary world!
Spring is perhaps the best metaphor for any writer of any story. In (almost) every story there is a form of “rebirth” after a time of trial–this is the story’s metaphorical spring. It’s no surprise, therefore, that springs is a writer’s best friend! It is a time of fresh starts, cool breezes, early sunrises. It is a time to break away from the darkness of winter and embrace the light. See, it really is the perfect season for writing!
Whether it’s poetry, prose or essay, Spring has a dominant presence in literature and here are some of my favorite quotes from some of my favorite authors!
