California Rain . . .


Well, in California, we don’t often get a drenching rain but we are always happy when we get some rain! We got some rain, yesterday . . . not enough to alleviate our current drought condition but enough to put some sparkle on the blades of grass and tree branches. It brought to mind a few interesting quotes on the subject, too.

“What so looks lovelily
Is but the rainbow on life’s weeping rain.”
F. Thomson: Ode to the Setting Sun 19th century

“I always like walking in the rain, so no one can see me crying.”
Charles Chaplin

“Do not be angry with the rain; it simply does not know how to fall upwards.”
Vladimir Nabokov

“Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.”
Roger Miller

“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enought to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.”
Frank A. Clark

“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”
Dolly Parton

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
