15 Quotes About Winter

I am not a fan of Winter. I hate being cold. And this year has been one of the coldest, snowiest winters I can remember in a long time. I will be grateful for Spring when it finally gets here, mostly so I can stop arguing with my 6th grader about why he cannot wear shorts to school when it’s 12 degrees outside. #thisgeneration #sigh

Winter brings with it though, the promise of redemption. All things not strong enough to survive the frozen temperatures, ice and snow will die off and are eventually made new again. It causes me to reflect about what in my life needs to die off and what, when put to the test, can withstand adversity. Winter is a great reminder that every season in life has benefits, even the ones filled with hardship.

The collection of quotes below celebrates these things and more about winter.

15 Quotes about Winter

  1. “What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” ~ John Steinbeck
  2. “So when you’re cold, from the inside out and don’t know what to do, remember love and friendship, and warmth will come to you.” ~  Stephen Cosgrove
  3. “Winter is the time for stories, staying fast by the glow of fire. And outside, in the darkness, the stars are brighter than you can possibly imagine.” ~  Isabel Greenberg
  4. “Always choose the adventure … unless, it’s chilly outside and there’s a cup of warm coffee resting near a book and comfy sofa.” ~ Barbara Brooke
  5. “The promise of spring’s arrival is enough to get anyone through the bitter winter.” ~ Jen Selinsky
  6. “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
  7. “I miss the snow. I miss looking at it, walking in it, tasting it. I used to love those days when it was so cold everyone else would be tucked away inside trying to stay warm. I would be the only one out walking, so I could look across the fields and see miles of snow without a single footprint in it. It would be completely silent — no cars, no birds singing, no doors slamming. Just silence and snow. God, I miss snow. The stars, the moon, the wind, and blankets of pure, pristine snow.” ~ Damien Echols
  8. “The heart can get really cold if all you’ve known is winter.” ~ Benjamin Alire Sáenz
  9. “Don’t mire up in self despair of your losses, learn from them and move on to other good things in life. Don’t stop allowing the sunshine in because of the fear that winter will come and engulf the warmth. Hold it close to you to help you through those cold winter days.” ~ Belinda Taylor
  10. “In the winter she curls up around a good book and dreams away the cold.” ~ Ben Aaronovitch
  11. “To wish for the happiest days is to wish for a season of sorrow; for it is only after prolonged, wintry darkness that the summer sun appears to shine at its brightest.” ~ Richelle E. Goodrich
  12. “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ~ Lewis Carroll
  13. “It was one of those years when there was no summer. There was no winter either. It was just November all year that year.” ~ Betty K. Erwin
  14. “…I hear the sounds of melting snow outside my window every night and with the first faint scent of spring, I remember life exists…” ~ John Geddes
  15. “Thank goodness for the first snow, it was a reminder–no matter how old you became and how much you’d seen, things could still be new if you were willing to believe they still mattered.” ~ Candace Bushnell
