Cover of Edith SitwellLet us love winter, for it is the spring of genius. ~Pietro Aretino
“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.”
People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy."
“A man says a lot of things in summer he doesn't mean in winter.”
Winter is the time of promise because there is so little to do - or because you can now and then permit yourself the luxury of thinking so.
“She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
"Winter is dead.”
It snowed last year too: I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea.
An old man loved is winter with flowers."
-- German Proverb
