Quote Love (17)

Quote Love is a new meme hosted by 'Midnight Twilight'. It's kind of like Teaser Tuesday from Should Be Reading, but with this one you can choose any quote from any book, not just the one you're currently reading. The quote can be thought provoking, or funny, or just really powerful, it's all up to you which kind of quote you choose.

Here is what you have to do to participate:
1) Choose one of your favorite quotes.
2) Post the quote, and write what you like about it.
3) Make sure to put the title and author so if someone else likes the quote they can check out the book.
4) Post your link on Midnight Twilight's Post.

So here is my quote for the week:

"Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine..."
Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Secret Garden)

I chose this because lately our weather has been chucking it with rain one minute - then hot sunshine the next and I thought this described it perfectly.

Enjoy your weekend!

On a completely un-related note: 

I took part in a Diving competition today. My club (the Bedford Eagles) went against another club (North Bedford Diving Club). We were split into age groups.
In my age group (over 16's) I came in 2nd Place and got a shiny silver medal. I was only 2 points!!! behind the winner. Had great fun and was pleased with my performance.
My club got more wins over all. So proud of us all! :D
Had to share the news.

Congratulations! Second place is still great!

Sorry it's taken me so long to comment on this (I've been on vacation). This quote brings up a lot of imagery of a sun-shower for me. I love it when the rain is warm and you can see the sun shining through.

And the weather here has been kind of crazy too.

Hope you've had a good vacation.

Yeah I love the sun through the rain, and the smell of fresh rain. :)
