Welcome to our Easter quotes page. Easter means many things to different people. For some it's one of the highest Holy Days of the year.
An Act of Love
Easter is the time when Christ proved he was God's son and arose from the dead. This was an act of love and giving. John 3:16 is probably one of the most recognized Easter quotes.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
Another frequently quoted verse that describes this holy Christian day is:
"But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him."
~ Acts 2:24
Easter is a time new beginnings. For those from the frozen North, it's a time when the weather outside welcomes them and they can finally peel off their wraps of winter. The first blossoms begin to emerge through the ground and like the Phoenix, new life forms from what we thought was barren.
S.D. Gordon, a Christian inspirational speaker probably said it best:
"Easter spells out beauty, the rare beauty of new life."
Another particularly apt verse about the rebirth of the outdoors and Christ at Easter is from Albert Laighton, a poet from New Hampshire.
"Where man sees but withered leaves, God sees sweet flowers growing."
Other very appropriate Easter quotes include these:
"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."
Robert South, Sermons.
"Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song."
Pope John Paul II
"If Easter says anything to us today, it says this: You can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there. You can nail it to a cross, wrap it in winding sheets and shut it up in a tomb, but it will rise!"
Clarence W. Hall
"The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake."
Basil C. Hume.
Of course, no list of Easter quotes would be complete without some mention of eggs, bunnies and CHOCOLATE!!! While Easter is the celebration of Christ, it's also the time to end lent, sit around the table with loved ones, hunt for Easter eggs and consume pounds of Easter peeps and chocolate bunnies.
"Good Idea: Finding Easter eggs on Easter. Bad Idea: Finding Easter eggs on Xmas."
"Forget love; I'd rather fall in chocolate."
"Alzheimer's Advantage #2: You can hide your own Easter eggs."
"There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with chocolate."
"Easter says you can put truth in a grave, but it won't stay there."
Clarence W. Hall
"My mom used to say that Greek Easter was later because then you get stuff cheaper."
