Please pray for us here in L.A… It’s raining.
But don’t worry sunshine lovers, we’ve got some sweet, rain inspired words to keep you warm.
“It’s not that we have to quit this life one day, but it’s how many things we have to quit all at once: music, laughter, the physics of falling leaves, automobiles, holding hands, the scent of rain, the concept of subway trains… if only one could leave this life slowly!” ~Roman Payne, Rooftop Soliloquy
Being soaked alone is cold. Being soaked with your best friend is an adventure.” ~Emily Wing Smith, Back When You Were Easier to Love
“I always like walking in the rain, so no one can see me crying.” ~Charles Chaplin
“The richness of the rain made me feel safe and protected; I have always considered the rain to be healing—a blanket—the comfort of a friend. Without at least some rain in any given day, or at least a cloud or two on the horizon, I feel overwhelmed by the information of sunlight and yearn for the vital, muffling gift of falling water.” ~Douglas Coupland, Life After God
“There are a hundred things she has tried to chase away, the things she won’t remember and that she can’t even let herself think about, because that’s when the birds scream and the worms crawl and somewhere in her mind it’s always raining a slow and endless drizzle.
“You will hear that she has left the country, that there was a gift she wanted you to have, but it is lost before it reaches you. Late one night the telephone will sign, and a voice that might be hers will say something that you cannot interpret before the connection crackles and is broken.
“Several years later, from a taxi, you will see someone in a doorway who looks like her, but she will be gone by the time you persuade the driver to stop. You will never see her again. Whenever it rains you will think of her. ” ~Neil Gaiman
“Do not be angry with the rain; it simply does not know how to fall upwards.” ~Vladimir Nabokov
“On the fifth day, which was a Sunday, it rained very hard. I like it when it rains hard. It sounds like white noise everywhere, which is like silence but not empty.” ~Mark Haddon, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
“I went to bed and woke in the middle of the night thinking I heard someone cry, thinking I myself was weeping, and I felt my face and it was dry. Then I looked at the window and thought: Why, yes, it’s just the rain, the rain, always the rain, and turned over, sadder still, and fumbled about for my dripping sleep and tried to slip it back on.” ~Ray Bradbury, Green Shadows, White Whale: A Novel of Ray Bradbury’s Adventures Making Moby Dick with John Huston in Ireland
“I love you because no two snowflakes are alike, and it is possible, if you stand tippy-toe, to walk between the raindrops.” ~Nikki Giovanni
“Those who hate rain hate life.” ~Dejan Stojanovic
“Colors shone with exceptional clarity in the rain. The ground was a deep black, the pine branches a brilliant green, the people wrapped in yellow looking like special spirits that were allowed to wander over the earth on rainy mornings only.” ~Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
Hope you enjoyed, and remember there’s beauty and love all around, especially on a rainy day ❤
