36 Quotes on Rain

Rain is one terribly beautiful and beautifully terrible part of nature. It's like life; surprising, uncertain, an enduring discomfort that can become horrible or pleasant depending on the mood.  
Rain does not wait for our mood (like in movies for e.g.) and yet it brings its own moods when it comes. Rain is a part of life so like life in giving us a sense of safety and protection in a shelter and a sense of vulnerability out in the open.

It is the saga of life played in an hour or days with no surety of where the wheel will turn.

Does rain teach us something?

Some wise man might say it does or maybe it is just noise and we make meanings of it out of boredom. Who knows?
As with anything else people experience rain in different ways. For some each drop of rain is unique and different and yet for others, all rain is the same.  
Here are a few quotes on rain that I hope you will enjoy.
