Russian proverb

One must maintain a little bittle of summer, even in the middle of winter.
Henry David Thoreau

Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time.

patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.
Robert Schuller

One kind word can warm three winter months.
Japanese proverb

Blow, blow, thou winter wind! Thou art not so unkind as Man's ingratitude.

In the land of hope, there is no winter.
Chinese proverb

We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a
spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die,
but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the
sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will
come true.
Woodrow Wilson

It is a hard winter when dogs eat dogs.
English proverb

Russian proverb

The problem with winter sports is that - follow me closely here - they generally take place in
winter.
Dave Barry

We often hear of bad weather, but in reality no weather is bad. It is all delightful, though in
different ways. Some weather may be bad for farmers or crops, but for man all kinds are
good. Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating.
John Lubbock

The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball.
Doug Larson

The winter asks you what you have done during the summer.
Latvian proverb

Canada's climate is nine months of winter and three months late in the fall.
Evan Esar

Good books are to the young mind what the warming sun and the refreshing rain of spring are
to the seeds which have lain dormant in the frosts of winter.
Horace Mann

However much snow falls, still it does not endure the summer.
Turkish proverb

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 pray the gods will give me some relief,
And end this weary job. One long full year,
I've been lying here, on this rooftop,
The palace of the sons of Atreus,
Resting on my arms, just like a dog.
I've come to know the night sky, every star,
The powers we see glittering in the sky,
Bringing winter and summer to us all,
As the constellations rise and sink.
Aeschylus

I felt a determination cover my body like a quilt on a winter night.
Rosa Parks

The fireside is the tulip bed of a winter day.
Arabic proverb

My favourite sport in the Olympics is the one in which you make your way through the snow,
you stop, you shoot a gun, and then you continue on. In most of the world it is known as the
biathlon, except in New York City, where it is known as winter.
Michael Ventre

The English winter - ending in July, to recommence in August.
Lord Byron
