After spending a week off and on in the pouring down rain and then reading Rainy Day Quotes by Life Lessons, I decided that a Rainy Day post was in order.
The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
The best kind of rain, of course, is a cozy rain. This is the kind the anonymous medieval poet makes me remember, the rain that falls on a day when you’d just as soon stay in bed a little longer, write letters or read a good book by the fire, take early tea with hot scones and jam and look out the streaked window with complacency. ~Susan Allen Toth, England For All Seasons
What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance. ~Jane Austen
It is beautiful when it rains far away in the distance, the bright sun shining on the mound on which you stand, and only a few guerilla drops heralding the approach of the shower towards you. ~John Richard Vernon, “The Beauty of Rain,” 1863
I am sure it is a great mistake always to know enough to go in when it rains. One may keep snug and dry by such knowledge, but one misses a world of loveliness. ~Adeline Knapp
I’m over the bridge and under the rain.~ Mat Kearney
“When it’s pouring rain and you’re bowling along through the wet, there’s satisfaction in knowing you’re out there and the others aren’t.” -Peter Snell
“I know this much about racing in the rain. I know it is about balance. It is about anticipation and patience… about the mind! It is about owning one’s body… It is about believing that you are not you; you are everything. And everything is you.” ― Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain
The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain. ~ Dolly Parton
“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.”
― Bob Marley
A happy rainy day song.
Ooohh I hear laughter in the rain
Walking hand in hand with the one I love
Ooohh how I love the rainy days
And the happy way I feel inside “Laughter In The Rain” ~Neil Sedaka
Finally a great sad rainy day song.
