“I prefer winter and fall, when you can feel the bone structure in the landscape
– the loneliness of it – the dead feeling of winter.
Something waits beneath it. The whole story doesn’t show.”
― Andrew Wyeth

Winter solitude-
in a world of one color
the sound of the wind.
― Bashō

― Virginia Woolf, Jacob’s Room

“I read, much of the night, and go south in the winter.”
― T.S. Eliot

“Wisdom comes with winters”
― Oscar Wilde

“The problem with winter sports is that — follow me closely here — they generally take place in winter.”

“When we pulled out into the winter night and the real snow, our snow, began to stretch out beside us and twinkle against the windows, and the dim lights of small Wisconsin stations moved by, a sharp wild brace came suddenly into the air. That’s my middle-west – not the wheat or the prairies or the lost Swede towns, but the thrilling returning trains of my youth and the street lamps and sleigh bells in the frosty dark and the shadows of holly wreaths thrown by lighted windows on the snow.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
