Quote of the Day (Anne Bradstreet, on Winter and Adversity)

“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” —American Puritan poet Anne Bradstreet (1612-1672), “Meditations Divine and Moral” (1655)

The accompanying picture was taken in my hometown, Englewood, NJ, almost exactly a year ago, when snow was still on the ground on the first day of spring.
