"The joyful news that He is risen does not change the contemporary world. Still before us lie work, discipline, sacrifice. But the fact of Easter gives us the spiritual power to do the work, accept the discipline, and make the sacrifice." -Henry Knox Sherrill
"Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life." -S.D. Gordon
"If Easter says anything to us today, it says this: You can put truth in a grave, but it won’t stay there. You can nail it to a cross, wrap it in winding sheets and shut it up in a tomb, but it will rise!" - Clarence W. Hall
"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom." -Marcel Proust
