    He was inordinately proud of England and he abused her incessantly.
    —H.G. (Herbert George)

    It’s easy to understand why the most beautiful poems about England in the spring were written by poets living in Italy at the time.
    Philip Dunne (1908–1992)

In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four-and-twenty hours.
    Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (1835–1910)
