12 Quotes to Ring in Spring

One of my favorite hobbies is to read and share quotes. I can’t get enough of the balance between the poetic and the profound meanings in short phrases. Often I find myself looking for a list of quotes a writer has gathered online for the world to savor and enjoy. My favorite quotes center on the topic of joy, peace and love.

Isn’t it time I shared my own list of quotes with my beloved readers? Together we will pause and soak up this exciting gathering of words. Together we will discover how our inner selves will be inspired and moved by the wisdom of sayings. Together we will collect a set of quotes to help us stretch and believe in something bigger than our inner critic.

Let’s take these bite-size quotes and plant them in your emotional garden. Post one on your phone. Use it as wallpaper on your computer screen. Print one for a friend. Send it to someone who could use a springtime lift. Remind yourself spring calls us to celebrate the joy of beginnings, the peace of quiet growth and the love of an ever expanding palette of color, sound and smell.
