When it comes to posting a festive status for any holiday, having to think up words to express your emotions can feel kind of overwhelming. It can be maddening to stare at a blank new post with no idea what to say. So, what if instead you post a quote by someone else? Because there are some people out there who just know exactly what to say and when to say it — and these Easter quotes to share online are exactly the words you’re going to look for on Easter 2017.
A few of these quotes do relate to the religious aspect of Easter, since that is what the holiday is wrapped around. But there are also a ton of wonderful poems and quotes from influential figures throughout time that share about the spirit of Easter and spring — and how this time can be rejuvenating for the soul. And of course, for eating lots of chocolate eggs and bunnies. Priorities, people.
So if you’re looking for the perfect thing to post on Facebook (or any social platform, honestly) during Easter, then take your pick at these inspiring words from others and post away! With credit, obviously, because plagiarism is never OK.
