    Hello Shawn,
    What a wonderful idea for Easter, all these amazing Easter Quotes. Thank you so much, they are so inspiring.

    I have a few I would like to share.

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

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

    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 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

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

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

    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

    Easter is not a time for groping through dusty, musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove life eternal. It is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope, a day to banish doubts and seek the slopes where the sun is rising, to revel in the faith which transports us out of ourselves and the dead past into the vast and inviting unknown. ~Author unknown, as quoted in the Lewiston Tribune

    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

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

    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”

    But from this earth, this grave, this dust,
    My God shall raise me up, I trust. ~Walter Raleigh

    He takes men out of time and makes them feel eternity. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

    Thou art the Sun of other days.
    They shine by giving back the rays.
    ~John Keble, The Christian Year: Easter Days

    We live and die; Christ died and lived! ~John Stott

    Awake, thou wintry earth –
    Fling off thy sadness!
    Fair vernal flowers, laugh forth
    Your ancient gladness! ~Thomas Blackburn, “An Easter Hymn”

    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

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

    Once more to new creation Awake,
    and death gainsay,
    For death is swallowed up of life,
    And Christ is risen today! ~George Newell Lovejoy

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

    There is not room for Death,
    Nor atom that his might could render void:
    Thou – Thou art Being and Breath,
    And what Thou art may never be destroyed. ~Emily Bronte

    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

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

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

    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”

    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”

    Colored eggs, baby chicks, tasty food, and new clothes may be symbolic of new life. But focusing our attention on our Savior and his gifts of life through the Resurrection and the possibility for eternal life through his Atonement is the best way to make Easter a day of “divine worship” and to establish gospel-centered family activities worthy of this sacred day.

    Ann H. Banks

    “Our Savior lived again. The most glorious, comforting, and reassuring of all events of human history had taken place—the victory over death. The pain and agony of Gethsemane and Calvary had been wiped away. The salvation of mankind had been secured. The Fall of Adam had been reclaimed. The empty tomb that first Easter morning was the answer to Job’s question, ‘If a man die, shall he live again?’ To all within the sound of my voice, I declare, If a man die, he shall live again. We know, for we have the light of revealed truth.” Thomas S. Monson
