funny easter quotes

Easter is not a time for groping through dusty, musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove life eternal.  It is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope, a day to banish doubts and seek the slopes where the sun is rising, to revel in the faith which transports us out of ourselves and the dead past into the vast and inviting unknown.  ~Author unknown, as quoted in the Lewiston Tribune

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The stars shall fade away, the sun himself
Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years;
But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth,
Unhurt amid the war of elements,
The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.
~Joseph Addison

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Where man sees but withered leaves, God sees sweet flowers growing.  ~Albert Laighton

Bunnies are cuddly
The large and the small
But I like chocolate ones
The best of them all.
~Author Unknown

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The fasts are done; the Aves said;
The moon has filled her horn
And in the solemn night I watch
Before the Easter morn.
So pure, so still the starry heaven,
So hushed the brooding air,
I could hear the sweep of an angel's wings
If one should earthward fare.
~Edna Dean Proctor, "Easter Morning"

With a glad victorious smile,
And the merry March winds echo
Down the budding green defile.

My soul's a belfry full of bells,
      With warbling birds behind its bars!
      I see the softly mirrored stars
      That tremble in the glassy wells...
My soul is full of Archangéls,
      And full of star-y pointing flight!
      I hear the flail of Fates that smite
      The hoarded grain with secret spells...
