Nearly everybody gets twitterpated in the springtime.

You begin to get weak in the knees, your head's in a whirl! And then you feel light as feather, and before you know it you're walking on air! And then you know what? You're knocked for a loop! And you completely lose your head!
Friend Owl in Bambi

And never heard them sing

And then you brought the spring
By March, the worst of the winter would be over. The snow would thaw, the rivers begin to run and the world would wake into itself again.

November is a gentle reminder for not having done a single thing from your new year resolution for ten months and not doing any for another two.

The axe forgets, but the tree remembers.

Even if one tree falls down it wouldn't affect the entire forest.
What I want is for the humans and the forest to live in peace!
Prince Ashitaka in Princess Mononoke
What began as a common desire to secure wilderness for people to enjoy, has become a worldwide movement to preserve these areas for future generations.

May is a gentle reminder for not having done a single thing from your new year resolution for four months and not doing any for the next eight.
The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit.

Perfection is impossible. In the 1,526 singles matches I played in my career, I won almost 80% of those matches. But what percentage of points did I win? 54%! In other words, even top ranked tennis players win barely more than half the points they play. When you lose every second point on average, you learn not to dwell on every shot.
Roger Federer - Juni 2024
We've had a lot of away games in the Champions League this season where we've heard the fans. When I think of the game in Newcastle, where you can hear our fans the whole time, even though it was said beforehand that Newcastle is the loudest stadium in England – that's really saying something. We are looking forward to our fans, they will deliver again in Paris.
