QUOTES AND APHORISMS ON WINTERS
Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen.
Willa Cather (1876-1947, American author)
January, month of empty pockets! Let us endure this evil month, anxious as a theatrical producer's forehead.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette (1873-1954, French author)
Often in winter the end of the day is like the final metaphor in a poem celebrating death: there is no way out.
O, wind, if winter comes, can spring be far behind?
Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792-1822, British poet)
Many of the phenomena of Winter are suggestive of an inexpressible tenderness and fragile delicacy. We are accustomed to hear this king described as a rude and boisterous tyrant; but with the gentleness of a lover he adorns the tresses of Summer.
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862, American essayist, poet, naturalist)
