Non-Religious Easter Quotes To Share This Holiday

Everyone knows Easter is mostly regarded as a religious holiday; if you’re a Christian, it celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which forms the entire foundation of the Christian faith. Over time, though, Easter has also come to represent other themes of springtime, fertility, happiness, transformation, and rebirth. So, whether you’re in need of a little inspiration to get yourself into the seasonal spirit of the holiday, or are just looking for some wise words to share on Instagram, these non-religious Easter quotes can be your guide. They might not be quite so sweet as a Cadbury Creme Egg, but they’re still just as festive.

Much has been written about Easter, and spring in general — both from a religious point of view and otherwise.

Regardless of how seriously you celebrate Easter, these quotes get to the bottom of what the holiday is all about — new life, hope, and fresh starts. This season, find a quote that speaks to you.
