Famous quotes containing the word spring:

    So Spring comes merry towards me here, but earns
    No answering smile from me, whose life is twin’d
    With the dead boughs that winter still must bind,
    Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882)

    Measure your health by your sympathy with morning and spring. If there is no response in you to the awakening of nature—if the prospect of an early morning walk does not banish sleep, if the warble of the first bluebird does not thrill you—know that the morning and spring of your life are past. Thus may you feel your pulse.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    sullen fun

    Savage as childhood’s thin harmonious tear:
    O fountain, bosom source undying-dead
    Replenish me the spring of love and fear
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
