Thirteen Quotes to Celebrate March

It’s March already and in celebration I’d like to share these quotes.

1. It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens
2. Reading is a possession, a march toward a possession. ~Italo Calvino
3. In March the soft rains continued, and each storm waited courteously until its predecessor sunk beneath the ground.  ~John Steinbeck
4.  The march of invention has clothed mankind with powers of which a century ago the boldest imagination could not have dreamt. ~Henry George
5.  By March, the worst of the winter would be over. The snow would thaw, the rivers begin to run and the world would wake into itself again.
Not that year. Winter hung in there, like an invalid refusing to die. Day after grey day the ice stayed hard; the world remained unfriendly and cold. ~Neil Gaiman
6.  Don't ever become a pessimist... a pessimist is correct oftener than an optimist, but an optimist has more fun, and neither can stop the march of events. ~Robert A. Heinlein
7.  March came in that winter like the meekest and mildest of lambs, bringing days that were crisp and golden and tingling, each followed by a frosty pink twilight which gradually lost itself in an elfland of moonshine. ~L.M. Montgomery

9.  One Christmas my father kept our tree up till March. He hated to see it go. I loved that. ~Mo Rocca
10.  When you become part of something, in some way you count. It could be a march; it could be a rally, even a brief one. You're part of something, and you suddenly realize you count. To count is very important. ~Studs Terkel
11.  Sometimes I get depressed about my age. In March I’ll be 26. If man weren’t measured in numbers, but rather letters, I’d be turning Z. And then I’d be dead. ~Jarod Kintz
12.   March on. Don't look in the rearview, just the windshield. ~Josh Bowman
13.  I don't take success and failure seriously. The only thing I do seriously is the march forward. If I fall, I get up and march again. ~Kareena Kapoor Khan



  1. Winter hung in there, like an invalid refusing to die. - Brilliant image. Our winter this year was more like a spry 55-year-old who insisted on tennis every day.

    1. Ha! You've got an awesome analogy too. Thanks.

  2. We've been having really warm days for Feb and March - up to 60 and 70 degrees in the Midwest!

  3. March is one of those words that when I say it over and over or focus on it, it seems made up and unreal. Maybe it's the double mean, month of stomping forward.

    1. Colleen,
      Yeah, you're right. :) Thanks for the thought.
