Wayside Quotes

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!

- Mark Twain
_____________________

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

- Anne Bradstreet
_____________________

It was such a spring day as breathes an ineffable yearning, a painful sweetness, a longing that makes you stand motionless, looking at the leaves or grass, and fling out your arms to embrace you knows not what.

- John Galsworthy
