Buds of Spring

It's springtime, and pollen is in the air. Between coughing fits, sneezing, and post nasal drip, I'm really enjoying the season. It's warm enough for tee shirts and short skirts again, and sandals. Yay! I'm not much into posting a lot today, but I wanted to share some springtime quotes.

All our progress is an unfolding, like the vegetable bud, you have first an instinct, then an opinion, then a knowledge, as the plant has root, bud and fruit. Trust the instinct to the end, though you can render no reason. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our consciousness rarely registers the beginning of a growth within us any more than without us; there have been many circulation of the sap before we detect the smallest sign of the bud. -- George Eliot

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. -- Anais Nin
