“To appreciate the beauty of a snow flake, it is necessary to stand out in the cold.”

“Sunshine cannot bleach the snow, Nor time unmake what poets know”
 Ralph Waldo Emerson

“When Christmas bells are swinging above the fields of snow, we hear sweet voices ringing from lands of long ago, and etched on vacant places are half-forgotten faces of friends we used to cherish, and loves we used to know.”
 Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“Snow and adolescence are the only problems that disappear if you ignore them long enough.”
 Earl Wilson

“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.”
 John Ruskin



I like the first one

It's pouring rain here in Alabama. Jilda and I put on our Irish rain coats and had a great walk.
The dogs were less than enthused, but we had a great time.

The first one is lovely! You always come up with such good quotes for us on a Monday.

So funny bearing in mind I was just saying I hoped it did not snow

like your Monday quotes!!

@Adam - my favourite as well and as I see also Diane's!
@Rick - rain is also sometimes inspiring but in autumn! Happy birthday to you!
@Inge - well it did snow almost everywhere in Europe!
@Annmarie - thank you, a long tradition which I like to keep!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
