Famous quotes containing the word spring:

    Every disastrous accident alarms us, and sets us on enquiries concerning the principles whence it arose: Apprehensions spring up with regard to futurity: And the mind, sunk into diffidence, terror, and melancholy, has recourse to every method of appeasing those secret intelligent powers, on whom our fortune is supposed entirely to depend.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    For winter’s rains and ruins are over,
    And all the seasons of snows and sins;
    The days dividing lover and lover,
    The light that loses, the night that wins;
    And time remembered is grief forgotten,
    And frosts are slain and flowers begotten,
    And in green underwood and cover
    Blossom by blossom the spring begins.
    —A.C. (Algernon Charles)

    O, Wind,
    If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?
    Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792–1822)
