Quickly Quotable #56 – Easter Special

Our Lord has written the promise of the resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in spring-time.  ~Martin Luther

It is the hour to rend thy chains,
The blossom time of souls.  ~Katherine Lee Bates

Tomb, thou shalt not hold Him longer;
Death is strong, but Life is stronger;
Stronger than the dark, the light;
Stronger than the wrong, the right…
~Phillips Brooks, “An Easter Carol”

Let the resurrection joy lift us from loneliness and weakness and despair to strength and beauty and happiness.  ~Floyd W. Tomkins

For I remember it is Easter morn,
And life and love and peace are all new born.  ~Alice Freeman Palmer
