What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.
Nothing burns like the cold.
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.
Melancholy were the sounds on a winter’s night.
Virginia Woolf, Jacob’s Room
Winter is nature’s way of saying, “Up yours.”
Winter is not a season, it’s an occupation.
I do an awful lot of thinking and dreaming about things in the past and the future – the timelessness of the rocks and the hills – all the people who have existed there. I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape – the loneliness of it, the dead feeling of winter. Something waits beneath it, the whole story doesn’t show.Andrew Wyeth
I dont hate it he thought, panting in the cold air, the iron New England dark; I dont. I dont! I dont hate it! I dont hate it!
William Faulkner, Absalom, Absalom!
Every mile is two in winter.
One kind word can warm three winter months.
Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart.
A snowflake is winter’s butterfly.
Seen on a Hero Arts stamp
Baby, it’s cold outside.
