Stronger than the dark, the light;

~Phillips Brooks, "An Easter Carol"
Easter is not a time for groping through dusty, musty tomes or tombs to disprove spontaneous generation or even to prove life eternal.

~Author unknown, as quoted in the Lewiston Tribune

Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years;

Unhurt amid the war of elements,
The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.

The fasts are done; the Aves said;
The moon has filled her horn
And in the solemn night I watch
Before the Easter morn.

So hushed the brooding air,
I could hear the sweep of an angel's wings
If one should earthward fare.
~Edna Dean Proctor, "Easter Morning"
For I remember it is Easter morn,
And life and love and peace are all new born.

and death gainsay,
For death is swallowed up of life,
And Christ is risen today!

Nor atom that his might could render void:
