Easter Quotes

Celebrate this season of death and rebirth...

Enjoy this collection of Easter quotes.  Laugh at the ridiculous Easter egg jokes.

Easter is the time of the crucifixion and more importantly the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

Easter is also a great time to contemplate and embrace the natural cycle of death and rebirth in of our own lives. Just as when the cold winds of winter causes the trees to shed their leaves and the flowers to die, so it is in our own evolutionary growth.

The times of lack, sadness, and loss can be the genesis of new birth of opulence, joy, and opportunity. By viewing our seasons losses and hardships as a signal of hope that our rejuvenation and blessings are just around the corner, we speed the process of new birth in our own lives.

Remember just as Jesus conquered death, what seemed to be unconquerable, so too can we surmount those "unconquerable" things in our lives.

But those who die in the LORD will live; their bodies will rise again! Those who sleep in the earth will rise up and sing for joy! For your life-giving light will fall like dew on your people in the place of the dead!.
~ Bible - Isaiah 26:19 (NLT)

The Resurrection
1Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. 2And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. 4And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. 5But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where hea lay. 7Then go quickly and tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, he is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him. See, I have told you.” 8So they departed quickly from the tomb with fear and great joy, and ran to tell his disciples. 9And behold, Jesus met them and said, “Greetings!” And they came up and took hold of his feet and worshiped him. 10Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid; go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”
~ Bible - Matthew 28:1-10 (ESV)

Easter and Chocolate

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

There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE.
~ Linda Grayson, "The Pickwick Papers"

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

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

Danny Shanahan

  • If you've got melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.
  • Chocolate-covered raisins, cherries, orange slices, and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want.
  • The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car. The solution: Eat it in the parking lot.
  • Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less.
  • Chocolate also contains milk which is dairy. So candy bars are a health food.
  • If I eat equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate, is that a balanced diet? Don't they actually counteract each other?
  • Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way at least you'll get one thing done.
  • A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy?
  • If you can't eat all of your chocolate it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?
  • Money talks. Chocolate sings.
  • Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger.
  • Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous? Because no one wants to quit.
  • Chocolate is a health food. Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived either from sugar beets or cane, both vegetables. And, of course, the milk/cream is dairy. So eat more chocolate to meet the dietary requirements for daily vegetable intake.
  • If not for chocolate, there would be no need for control top pantyhose. An entire garment industry would be devastated.

Easter Dress

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.

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

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

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

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

Quotes by Spiritual Leaders

The benefits [of the resurrection] are innumerable. To list a few: Our illnesses don't seem nearly so final; Our fears fade and lose their grip; Our grief over those who have gone on is diminished; Our desires to press on in spite of the obstacles is rejuvenated... Our identity as Christians is strengthened as we stand in the lengthening shadows of saints down through the centuries, who have always answered back in antiphonal voice: 'He is risen, indeed!'
~ Charles Swindoll

"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

The marvel of heaven and earth, of time and eternity, is the atoning death of Jesus Christ. This is the mystery that brings more glory to God than all creation.
~ C. H. Spurgeon

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

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,

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

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.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is a certainty. If any fact, not merely of Christianity, but of history, stands on an impregnable foundation, this does.
