Quotes About Growth and Rebirth

In our post about Ukrainian Easter eggs, we talked about how, through the ages and across cultures, the egg has served as a popular springtime symbol, representing fertility, growth and rebirth.

Here’s what a few others have had to say on the subject…

Nature often holds up a mirror so we can see more clearly the ongoing processes
