Spring Sentiments for Cards and Scrapbooking

Updated on August 20, 2014

Words That Capture the Season ...

Take a few moments to be rejuvenated by these Spring sentiments. This time of year reminds us of renewal and of new life being born, and there are so many quotes that capture the essence of the Season. Enjoy poignant words about hope, joy, nature, and all things Springtime. They will bring a smile to your face and warm the hearts of those you share them with.

Spring Blessings ...

"Spring shows what God can do with a drab and dirty world."

-- Virgil A. Kraft

" Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth."

1 Chronicles 16:33

"This is the day the LORD has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it."

-PSALMS 118:24

Spring and Seeds Of Hope ...

"Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again."

Sarah Ban Breathnach

"Sit quiety, doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself."

Zen saying

"Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing

agent as a sunny spring day." W. Earl Hall

"One touch of nature makes the whole world kin."

--William Shakespeare

"Where man sees but withered leaves,

God sees sweet flowers growing."

- - Albert Laighton

"All through the long winter, I dream of my garden.

On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth.

I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar."

-- Helen Hayes

"Kind hearts are the gardens;

kind thoughts are the roots;

kind words are the flowers;

kind deeds are the fruits."

Wonder of Spring ...

"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems."

-- Rainer Maria Rilke

"How strange that Nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!"

-- by Emily Dickinson

"An optimist is the human personification of spring."

-- Susan J. Bissonette

"Can words describe the fragrance of the very breath of spring? "

-- Neltje Blanchan

"Springtime is the land awakening.

The March winds are the morning yawn."

-- Lewis Grizzard

"The beautiful spring came; and when Nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also. "

-- Harriet Ann Jacobs

"The air is like a butterfly

With frail blue wings.

The happy earth looks at the sky

And sings."

- Joyce Kilmer, Spring

"Every spring is the only spring."

Flowers ...

"The earth laughs in flowers."

e. e. cummings

"Buttercups and daisies,

Oh, the pretty flowers;

Coming ere the springtime,

To tell of sunny hours.

When the trees are leafless;

When the fields are bare;

Buttercups and daisies

Spring up here and there."

- Mary Howitt

"If you take a flower in your hand and really look at it,

it's your world for the moment."

O'Keefe, Georgia

"I will be the gladdest thing under the sun!

I will touch a hundred flowers

And not pick one."

Edna St. Vincent Millay

"The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of its scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness."

Therese of Lisieux

"Some people worry that artificial intelligence will make us feel inferior, but then, anybody in his right mind should have an inferiority complex every time he looks at a flower."

Alan C. Kay

"Happiness held is the seed; Happiness shared is the flower."

"I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck."

- Emma Goldman

"Where flowers bloom so does hope."

- Lady Bird Johnson

It's almost here - It's safe to say,

I saw a Crocus yesterday

Its' colors bright - A lovely thing

My heart Rejoiced! 'Twil soon be Spring!

In friendship's fragrant garden,

There are flowers of every hue.

Each with its own fair beauty

And its gift of joy for you.

"All the flowers of tomorrow are in the seeds of yesterday."

"Sweet April showers do spring May flowers."

"Spring has come when you can put your foot on three daisies" Proverb

"The Amen! of Nature is always a flower."

- Oliver Wendell Holmes

Flowers and butterflies drift in color, illuminating spring.

How to Personalize Someone Else's Words ...

We can't all put our feelings into words like Shakespeare or Browning. I think reading quotes give us those "ah ha" moments of "Yes, that's just what I want to say." When a quote captures your message, use it and add a personal touch. I love to do this by making my own cards. If you're limited by time or crafting ability, buy a pretty box of blank cards and print a quote typed on your computer, cut it out and insert it inside the card with double-sided tape. Going to that little bit of extra effort means so much and I think you'll find it saves you time and money, as opposed to making a trip to the store each time you need a birthday card.

Joyous Spring ...

"In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous." - Aristotle

"April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go." - Christopher Morley

"I stuck my head out the window this morning and

spring kissed me bang in the face. " Langston Hughes

"Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"

Robin Williams

Playful Spring ...

"In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt." Margaret Atwood

"In the Spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours." Mark Twain

"Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush."

- Doug Larson

I'm feeling oh-so silly,

I'm all in a muddle.

Can it be spring fever

That put my feet in this puddle?

It's Spring - Do you know

where your bloomers are?

Spring Party Invitation...

Spring has sprung

and bees are humming!

We're having a party,

and we hope you're coming!

Spring Season of Love ...

"In the Spring a livelier iris changes on the burnish'd dove; In the Spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love" Alfred, Lord Tennyson

"In the spring time, the only pretty ring time,

When birds do sing, hey ding a ding;

Sweet lovers love the spring." William Shakespeare

"Sweet springtime is my time is your time

is our time for springtime is love time

and viva sweet love. " e.e. cummings

"Flowers are love's truest language".

- Park Benjamin

"Enjoy the Spring of Love and Youth,

to some good angel leave the rest;

For Time will teach thee soon the truth,

there are no birds in last year's nest!"

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Sky ...

"When you look up at the sky, you have a feeling of unity, which delights you and makes you giddy."

Hodler, Ferdinand

"There are moments on most days when I feel a deep and sincere gratitude, when I sit at the open window, and there is a blue sky or moving clouds."

Kolliwitz, Kathe

Birds ...

"The first sparrow of spring! The year beginning with younger hope than ever!...

What at such a time are histories, chronologies, traditions, and all written revelations?

The brooks sing carols and glees to the spring." - Henry David Thoreau

It's neary here! It's coming fast!

The Robins will appear at last

Oh Wonderous Joy! I too shall sing!

And join in Nature's "Song for Spring"

Are you as eager for spring as I am? Say hello and let's welcome the sunshine together ...

Spring Fever ?

      Behold, my brothers, the spring has come; the earth has received the embraces of the sun and we shall soon see the results of that love! Every seed has awakened and so has all animal life. It is through this mysterious power that we too have our being and we therefore yield to our neighbours, even our animal neighbours, the same right as ourselves....
