Winter is coming.
George R.R. Martin
I am ready for hoodies and cold nights.
What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.
In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it.
Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.
Snow flurries began to fall and they swirled around people's legs like house cats. It was magical, this snow globe world.
Sarah Addison Allen
Nothing burns like the cold.
George R.R. Martin
Winter is not a season, it's an occupation.
Melancholy were the sounds on a winter's night.
Fall colors are funny. They’re so bright and intense and beautiful. It’s like nature is trying to fill you up with color, to saturate you so you can stockpile it before winter turns everything muted and dreary.
Music brings a warm glow to my vision, thawing mind and muscle from their endless wintering.
If winter comes, can spring be far behind?
Percy Bysshe Shelley, Ode to the West Wind
Winter is nature's way of saying, "Up yours."
Are ye the ghosts of fallen leaves, O flakes of snow, For which, through naked trees, the winds A-mourning go?
John B. Tabb
Nothing is as tedious as the limping days,
When snowdrifts yearly cover all the ways,
And ennui, sour fruit of incurious gloom,
Assumes control of fate’s immortal loom.
In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
Oh winter is here.
Every mile is two in winter.
The wastes of snow on the hill were ghostly in the moonlight. The stars were piercingly bright.
Maud Hart Lovelace
He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter.... In winter the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity.
Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.
Spring, summer, and fall fill us with hope; winter alone reminds us of the human condition.
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.
