Winter quotes page 2

Our natural tendency in the middle of winter is to avoid the elements as much as possible.
When the weather turns frigid, we retreat inside for survival and wait for it to warm up or for
the season to change. In a winter marriage, there may be a similar tendency to "avoid the
elements." Spouses may withdraw within themselves, hunkering down and trying to ride out
the cold season, hoping for spring but not taking any positive steps to move their marriage
toward spring. However, unlike the natural seasons, the seasons of a marriage do not
typically change without some positive action - unless it's a change from bad to worse.
Gary Chapman

From snow whether cooked or pounded you will get nothing but water.
Italian proverb

Chuck Norris can build a snowman out of rain.
Chuck Norris jokes

Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.
Yoko Ono

Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning
Henry David Thoreau

Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, "I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no
snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway."
Maya Angelou

Some kids piss their names in the snow. Chuck Norris can piss his name in concrete.
Chuck Norris jokes

How do the men who drive the snowplough get to work in the morning?
Steven Wright

Men have higher body temperatures than women. If your heating goes out in winter, I
recommend sleeping next to a man. Men are like portable heaters that snore.
Rita Rudner

No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.
George Burns

How many of us are able to distinguish between the odors of noon and midnight, or of winter
and summer, or of a windy spell and a still one? If man is so generally less happy in the cities
than in the country, it is because all these variations and nuances of sight and smell and
sound are less clearly marked and lost in the general monotony of gray walls and cement
Lin Yutang

We cling to our own point of view, as though everything depended on it. Yet our opinions
have no permanence; like autumn and winter, they gradually pass away.
Chuang Tzu

The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer
cottons into its winter wools.
Henry Beston
