Quotes about Winter

There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself.
Ruth Stout


I really needed a reason to fall in love with winter and this quote might help! I can go into the back yard and there is no one else there! I could put out a lawn chair, sip a cup of coffee and watch the birds at the feeders. And thanks to my fence... I have all the privacy I need.

Every mile is two in winter.
George Herbert

To  shorten winter,  borrow some money due in the spring.
W.J. Vogel

The English winter--ending in July,
To recommence in August.
Lord Byron
