Here we stand in the no-man’s-land between winter and spring… in other words, March. Full of hope and frustration, March is tempestuous and teasing. I hope you enjoy these month of March quotes as much as I do.
To give you an idea of my current frame of mind, I’m watching snow blow off my neighbor’s roof as I write this. Although our winter has been comparatively mild this year, it feels like I and everyone I know is just waiting for that magical day on the calendar… the end of winter.

However, where I live, March usually means two or three glorious days of 60-degree weather, usually accompanied by wind that will blow your winter coat off and sunshine that makes you want to recline in a lounge chair and pretend you’re at the beach. And then reality comes calling with a snowfall and/or below-freezing days once again.
In the interest of keeping hope alive — while knowing reality must exist alongside it — here are some of my favorite month of March quotes and sayings.
