15 Cheerful Quotes About Spring To Help Get Your Happy On

“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.” I saw this Pablo Neruda quote scrawled onto a sandwich board in Brooklyn this weekend, just as I was coming out of a weeks-long funk. The sun was shining and daffodils were popping out of the ground, and I was sure I couldn’t have come across it at a more perfect time. What a relief it is that we’ve survived the cold months! At times, this year’s tedious winter seemed endless — which is why Neruda’s words have stuck with me these last few days. If there’s one thing we can count on, it’s that spring will always find its way back, no matter how dismal January feels. Here are some more quotes to keep you smiling and rejuvenated through this season of new beginnings…
