Quotation Saturday


“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.”
~ Edith Sitwell

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
~ Lewis Carroll

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
~ John Steinbeck

“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”
~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


“It is growing cold. Winter is putting footsteps in the meadow. What whiteness boasts that sun that comes into this wood! One would say milk-colored maidens are dancing on the petals of orchids. How coldly burns our sun! One would say its rays of light are shards of snow, one imagines the sun lives upon a snow crested peak on this day. One would say she is a woman who wears a gown of winter frost that blinds the eyes. Helplessness has weakened me. Wandering has wearied my legs.”
~ Roman Payne

“The months roll by like wheels on a wheelchair. Pretty soon it’ll be July. Feels like just last month it was May.
~ Jarod Kintz

“Why is it that children, taught the names of the months and the fact that there are twelve of them, don't ask why the ninth is called the seventh (September), the tenth called the eight (October), the eleventh called the ninth (November), the twelfth called the tenth (December)?”
~ John Cage


“A snowball in the face is surely the perfect beginning to a lasting friendship.”
~ Markus Zusak

“Walls have ears.
Doors have eyes.
Trees have voices.
Beasts tell lies.
Beware the rain.
Beware the snow.
Beware the man
You think you know.
-Songs of Sapphique”
~ Catherine Fisher

“I love snow for the same reason I love Christmas: It brings people together while time stands still. Cozy couples lazily meandered the streets and children trudged sleds and chased snowballs. No one seemed to be in a rush to experience anything other than the glory of the day, with each other, whenever and however it happened.”
~ Rachel Cohn

“A cold wind was blowing from the north, and it made the trees rustle like living things.”
~ George R.R. Martin

“Oh how I love winter, the comfort of snow, the peace that fills my heart. Then comes February, too close to spring for me. I’m saddened by its arrival.”
~ Joni
