:QUOTES: on winter...

Well, it looks like Punxsutawney Phil has predicted that we have another 6 weeks of winter.

Whether you consider that a gift or something to be endured is a matter of personal opinion! :-)

If you downloaded the February edition of Daily Inspirations, you may have noticed that one of the question prompts was on this very topic.

So, if you'll be creating a layout to record this piece of your personal opinion, here's a few quotes you might be able to use in your design.

Quotes for those that say, "I couldn't be happier with another six weeks of winter!":
  • "There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you.... In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches when you can savor belonging to yourself."
    ~Ruth Stout
  • "When there's snow on the ground, I like to pretend I'm walking on clouds."
    ~Takayuki Ikkaku, Arisa Hosaka and Toshihiro Kawabata, Animal Crossing: Wild World, 2005
  • "Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home."
    ~Dame Edith Sitwell
Quotes for those that say, "I was ready for warmer weather the day after Christmas!":
  • "Winter either bites with its teeth or lashes with its tail."
  • "A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water."
    ~Carl Reiner
  • "Time for the weather report. It's cold out folks. Bone-crushing cold. The kind of cold which will wrench the spirit out of a young man, or forge it into steel."
    ~Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider, Northern Exposure, Lost and Found, 1992
