Let 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.” 
 Edith Sitwell

People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy."

 Anton Chekhov

“A man says a lot of things in summer he doesn't mean in winter.” 
Patricia Briggs

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.
Stanley Crawford

“She turned to the sunlight
    And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
    "Winter is dead.” 
A.A. Milne

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.
 Dylan Thomas

An old man loved is winter with flowers."
-- German Proverb
