Winter Quotes

The moment we indulge our affections, the earth is metamorphosed, there is no winter and no night; all tragedies, all ennui s, vanish, all duties even.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Canada's climate is nine months winter and three months late in the fall.

Evan Esar

Buddhism holds that everything is in constant flux. Thus the question is whether we are to accept change passively and be swept away by it or whether we are to take the lead and create positive changes on our own initiative. While conservatism and self-protection might be likened to winter, night, and death, the spirit of pioneering and attempting to realize ideals evokes images of spring, morning, and birth.

Daisaku Ikeda

Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. It was not an expensive piece of wood. Far from it. Just a common block of firewood, one of those thick, solid logs that are put on the fire in winter to make cold rooms cozy and warm.

Carlo Collodi

That winter two things happened which made me see that the world, the flesh, and the devil were going to be more powerful influences in my life after all than the chapel bell. First, I tasted champagne; second, the theater.

Belle Livingstone

"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is symbolic as well as actual beauty in the migration of the birds, the ebb and flow of the tides, the folded bud ready for the spring. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature - the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter."

Rachel Carson

The climate is undoubtedly very desirable to live in. In summer the heats are usually moderated by the sea breeze, which sets in early, and in winter the degree of cold is so slight as to occasion no inconvenience. Once or twice we have had hoar frosts and hail, but no appearance of snow. The thermometer has never risen beyond 84, nor fallen lower than 35

Watkin Tench

Despite its regular annual occurrence in Japan, winter seems to be regarded as an aberration, so the cold is dealt with on the ad hoc basis of dragging out heaters and putting on extra clothing rather than insulating the walls. I eventually came to the conclusion that deep down, Japanese feel that putting up with the cold is good for you

Liza Dalby

The last day of the old year was one of those bright, cold, dazzling winter days, which bombard us with their brilliancy, and command our admiration but never our love.

Lucy Maud Montgomery

As winter weather settles in around the country, millions of American families are facing skyrocketing home heating prices with even greater impact if cold temperatures persist into the spring.

Russ Carnahan

The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.

Mark Twain

The force that makes the winter grow Its feathered hexagons of snow, and drives the bee to match at home Their calculated honeycomb, Is abacus and rose combined. An icy sweetness fills my mind, A sense that under thing and wing Lies, taut yet living, coiled, the spring.

Jacob Bronowski

People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring

Rogers Hornsby

People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring

Rogers Hornsby

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.

Stanley Horowitz

For well-being and health, again, the homestead should be airy in summer, and sunny in winter. A homestead possessing these qualities would be longer than it is deep; and its main front would face the south.

Aristotle

The tendinous part of the mind, so to speak, is more developed in winter; the fleshy, in summer. I should say winter had given the bone and sinew to literature, summer the tissues and the blood.

John Burroughs

People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy.

Anton Chekhov

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

To shorten winter, borrow some money due in spring.

W.J. Vogel

Winter either bites with its teeth or lashes with its tail.

Proverb

Every mile is two in winter.

George Herbert

Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.

Victor Hugo

There is probably a smell of roasted chestnuts and other good comfortable things all the time, for we are telling Winter Stories - Ghost Stories, or more shame for us - round the Christmas fire; and we have never stirred, except to draw a little nearer to it.
