eternal.

Standard

hope springs eternal

and

as the snow returns once more

i hope for eternal spring 

or for even just a month of it. 

“in the spring,

i have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.”

it has been said that a scotchman has not seen the world until he has seen edinburgh; and I think that I may say that an american has not seen the united states until he has seen mardi-gras in new orleans.
