"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. "
Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
"No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves."
"Spring is the time of plans and projects."
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
