"It’s March 20, which means spring has officially sprung. The snow will finally melt and soon be replaced by colorful flowers. The promise of warmer days is on the horizon. To celebrate the season of rebirth and new beginnings, some quotes from celebrities and writers have been listed below, courtesy of Brainy Quote, Good Reads and Garden Digest.

1.“Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party!'” --Robin Williams

"2. April hath put a spirit of youth in everything.” --William Shakespeare

  2. “You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.” --Pablo Neruda

  3. "The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month."--Henry Van Dyke, “Fisherman's Luck”

  4. “Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!” --Sitting Bull

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

  • Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
  • Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
  • Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.
  • Stay on topic — we're all here to learn more about math and science, not to hear about your favorite get-rich-quick scheme or current world events.

Is there a Spring God/Goddess?

Are there interesting stories?

I like mythical stories

I do not know about any Spring gods or Goddesses, but since you like stuff like that, I found a list of nature deities if that counts or suits you.

As per my Google search result I found "Persephone" to be the spring Goddess. In case you may like to share with your friends : "Persephone"

Have a good day
