Winter, Wildlife, and Wise Words

Today I am sharing some of my favorite quotes about winter, accompanied by my photography of wildlife, and winter sunsets. I hope you enjoy!


“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
– John Steinbeck


“In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
– Albert Camus


“Some people are worth melting for”
– Olaf


“Kindness is like snow – it beautifies everything it covers.”
-Kahlil Gibran


“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake it in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment, then where is it to be found.”
-JB Priestley


“The future lies before you, like a field of open snow; be careful how you tread it, for every step will show.”


“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”
-John Ruskin


“Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood.”
– Andy Goldsworthy


“When snow falls, nature listens.”
-Antoinette van Kleeff


“The cold never bothered me anyways.”
– Princess Elsa


“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that is kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up so snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
-Lewis Carroll


“Always maintain a kind of summer, even in the middle of winter.”
