“Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!‘“

"Spring is nature’s way of saying, ‘Let’s party!’” is a saying that has been printed on many images. It has been cited in print since at least July 1991, when a newspaper feature added, “Overheard during last year’s college spring break vacation.”

The saying has been credited to American stand-up comedian and actor. Robins Williams (1951-2014) since at least 1993. It’s uncertain if Williams said it first; Williams was well-known in 1991, but was not credited.

Robin McLaurin Williams (July 21, 1951 – August 11, 2014) was an American stand-up comedian and actor. Starting as a stand-up comedian in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the mid-1970s, he is credited with leading San Francisco’s comedy renaissance. After rising to fame as Mork in Mork & Mindy (1978–82), Williams went on to establish a career in both stand-up comedy and feature film acting. He was known for his improvisational skills.
