Weekend Wisdom: A Colorful Bouquet of Quotes

img_0830_cropped_blog

Hello!

It’s a sunny warm day in Northeast Ohio and lots of colorful flowers everywhere, except my yard because the dandelions are gone               😉

I stopped by the library today to post some quotes. Not sure when I will get back to the library to do a regular post. I planned on doing that today but just not in the mood to write.

Oh well, it will get done eventually.

Now I am off to find some way to contribute to life during this spring and the upcoming summer season.

Wishing you joy,

Michele

 

The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.

Homaro Cantu

Spring won’t let me stay in this house any longer! I must get out and breathe the air deeply again.

Gustav Mahler

Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!

Sitting Bull

They say it’s better to bury your sadness in a graveyard or garden that waits for the spring to wake from its sleep and burst into green.

Conor Oberst

We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.
