Quotes: Spring!

Spring! Spring is too wonderful to be encapsulated by just one quote, but here are three who’ve tried:

“Spring beckons! All things to the call respond;
the trees are leaving and cashiers abscond.”

“Every spring is the only spring, a perpetual astonishment.”

What’s your favourite Spring quote – and what’s your favourite season? I love them all, but if I ruled the universe, Winter would only last for a month!
