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

Easter is the demonstration of God that life is essentially spiritual and timeless.
Charles M. Crowe

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt!
Lucy Van Pelt
In Peanuts by Charles M. Schulz.

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

Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
Pope John Paul II

And he departed from our sight that we might return to our heart, and there find Him. For He departed, and behold, He is here.
St. Augustine
Confessions.

The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake.
Basil C. Hume

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

Let every man and woman count himself immortal. Let him catch the revelation of Jesus in his resurrection. Let him say not merely, "Christ is risen," but "I shall rise."
Phillips Brooks

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

Now let the heavens be joyful,
Let earth her song begin:
Let the round world keep triumph,
And all that is therein;
Invisible and visible,
Their notes let all things blend,
For Christ the Lord is risen
Our joy that hath no end.
Saint John of Damascus

O the Easter bells are gladly ringing,
Let the whole world join the happy lay,
Let the hills and vales break forth in singing,
Christ, the Lord of Life, is ris'n today.
Lizzie Akers
Easter Bells.

On Easter Day the veil between time and eternity thins to gossamer.
Douglas Horton

The resurrection gives my life meaning and direction and the opportunity to start over no matter what my circumstances.
Robert Flatt

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

There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE.
Linda Grayson

This is the promise that He hath promised us, even eternal life.
Bible, 1 John

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

Chocolate causes certain endocrine glands to secrete hormones that affect your feelings and behavior by making you happy. Therefore, it counteracts depression, in turn reducing the stress of depression. Your stress-free life helps you maintain a youthful disposition, both physically and mentally. So, eat lots of chocolate!
Elaine Sherman
Book of Divine Indulgences

"Christ the Lord is risen to-day,"
Sons of men and angels say.
Raise your joys and triumphs high;
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
Charles Wesley

Easter so longed for is gone in a day.
James Howell

Easter tells us that life is to be interpreted not simply in terms of things but in terms of ideals.
Charles M. Crowe

Forget love - I'd rather fall in chocolate!!!
Author Unknown

God expects from men something more than at such times, and that it were much to be wished for the credit of their religion as well as the satisfaction of their conscience that their Easter devotions would in some measure come up to their Easter dress.
Bishop Robert South
Sermons

He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.
Bible, Matthew

Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life.
S.D. Gordon

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.

I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. And whoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.
Bible, John

I think of the garden after the rain;
And hope to my heart comes singing,
"At morn the cherry-blooms will be white,
And the Easter bells be ringing!"
Edna Dean Proctor
Easter Bells.

I'm a little hoarse tonight. I've been living in Chicago for the past two months, and you know how it is, yelling for help on the way home every night. Things are so tough in Chicago that at Easter time, for bunnies the little kids use porcupines.
Fred Allen

The resurrection asserts a truth which is by no means always written legibly for all men on the face of nature. It tells us that the spiritual is higher than the material; that in this universe spirit counts for more than matter.
H.P. Liddon

In the bonds of Death He lay
Who for our offence was slain;
But the Lord is risen to-day,
Christ hath brought us life again,
Wherefore let us all rejoice,
Singing loud, with cheerful voice,
Hallelujah!
Martin Luther

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

In every grave on earth's green sward is a tiny seed of the resurrection life of Jesus Christ, and that seed cannot perish. It will germinate when the warm south wind of Christ's return brings back the spring-tide to this cold sin-cursed earth of ours; and then they that are in their graves, and we who shall lie down in ours, will feel in our mortal bodies the power of His resurrection, and will come forth to life immortal.
David Gregg

The story of Easter is the story of God's wonderful window of divine surprise. Carl Knudsen

Awake, thou wintry earth -
Fling off thy sadness!
Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
Your ancient gladness!
Thomas Blackburn
An Easter Hymn.

Ye sleeping buds, break
Open your green cerements, and wake
To fragrant blossoming for His sweet sake.
Margaret French Patton

Celestial spirit that doth roll
The heart's sepulchral stone away,
Be this our resurrection day,
The singing Easter of the soul -
O gentle Master of the Wise,
Teach us to say: "I will arise."
Richard Le Gallienne

'Twas Easter-Sunday. The full-blossomed trees
Filled all the air with fragrance and with joy.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Spanish Student.

Well pleaseth me the sweet time of Easter
That maketh the leaf and the flower come out.
Bertran de Born

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.

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

Angels, roll the rock away;
Death, yield up thy mighty prey:
See, He rises from the tomb,
Glowing with immortal bloom.
Thomas Scott
Easter Angels.

Unfortunately there is nothing more inane than an Easter carol. It is a religious perversion of the activity of Spring in our blood.
Wallace Stevens

See the land, her Easter keeping,
Rises as her Maker rose.
Seeds, so long in darkness sleeping,
Burst at last from winter snows.
Earth with heaven above rejoices.
Charles Kingsley
