Yeah, Spring!

So as we navigate April Fool's, we embark upon the glorious spring.

My grandfather always shared that the decay of winter is the mulch for spring. With my own zeal for spring, I invited current and past students to share their favorite quote that reflects their feelings for spring. Here are some:

Springtime is the land awakening. The March winds are the morning yawn.
Lewis McDonald Grizzard, Jr.

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's Party!"
Robin Williams

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

No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow.

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

When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in everything ...
William Shakespeare

A day comes in the springtime,
When the Earth puts forth her powers,
Casts off the bonds of winter
And lights him hence with flowers.
Dora Read Goodale

Spring translates earth's happiness into colorful flowers.
Terri Guillemets

People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.
Rogers Hornsby

Yet again, I learn far more from the students working their way through Lifeplan, and they inspire me to remember my own youth and the sparkling hope spring brings us every year.

Happy Spring, and let's play ball!
