March is a time of fresh beginnings, marked by the arrival of spring, strong winds, and celebrations like Women's Month. Since it is the transition month between winter and spring, a mish-mash of snow and mud fills the land.

We hope you enjoy our collection of March quotes below that can boost encouragement and optimism despite March's windy reputation.
March is the third month of the Gregorian calendar but based on the Roman and Julian calendar, it is the first month.
The Romans named March from the Latin word Martius or the Roman god of war, Mars. Most probably because March is the continuation of military campaigns after being interrupted by winter.
On the other hand, the Anglo-Saxon's Old English name for March is Hrēðmonath, based on the pagan fertility goddess Hreða, or Rheda. They must have chosen the goddess to commemorate the start of spring, wherein flowers blossom and animals mate.
