SOME THOUGHTS ON WINTER

Saturday, February 23, 2008


WITH ALL THE SNOW WE'VE BEEN HAVING IN THE MIDWEST LATELY I THOUGHT YOU MIGHT ENJOY THESE QUOTES (SOME OF THESE ARE REALLY FUNNY):

Skiing combines outdoor fun with knocking down trees with your face.
- Dave Barry

Winter either bites with its teeth or lashes with its tail.

There are only two seasons -- winter and Baseball.

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
- Anne Bradstreet

Winter is nature's way of saying, "Up yours."
- Robert Byrne

Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories.

Sometimes our fate resembles a fruit tree in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom, but we hope it, we know it.
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I like these cold, gray winter days. Days like these let you savor a bad mood.
- Bill Watterson

Every mile is two in winter.
- George Herbert

One kind word can warm three winter months.
-Japanese Proverb

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
- Albert Camus

Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but just look what they can do when they stick together.
- Vesta M. Kelly

    I love all 4 seasons! I think it is true, if we did not have the winter we would not enjoy spring and summer so much!

    I love the japanese proverb. I know the midwest is getting hit bad. I'm so glad we just have wind and rain in N. California.
