Yesterday was such an unexpectedly warm day for March. Spring appears to be
coming a little early this year. The temperatures were actually much more
like summer, near 80 degrees.
Today, the difference is dramatic. Rain, rain and more rain. I received these
quotes concerning rain in me inbox. They had a rather profound effect on me.
At once I felt, both uplifted and dejected after reading them; particularly after
reading the one by W.Somerset Maugham.
However you feel about rain, read these and then go to your window, watch the
rain and see if your perspective is changed.
Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
– Susan Ertz., 1894 – 1985
The rain fell alike upon the just and upon the unjust, and for nothing was there a why and a wherefore.
– W. Somerset Maugham, 1874 – 1965
Methought it lessened my esteem of a king, that he should not be able to command the rain.
– Samuel Pepys, 1633 – 1703
It’s raining again and once again I have had to put the studies I started to one side…. I am witnessing a complete transformation taking place in Nature, and my courage is failing as a result.
– Claude Monet, 1840 – 1926
If I were running the world I would have it rain only between 2 and 5 a.m. Anyone who was out then ought to get wet.
– William Lyon Phelps, 1865 – 1943
I see no wisdom in saving up indignation for a rainy day
– Heywood Hale Broun, 1918 – 2001
