What, I sometimes wonder, would it be like if I lived in a country where winter is a matter of a few chilly days and a few weeks’ rain; where the sun is never far away, and the flowers bloom all year long?
Anna Neagle
I love cheeseburgers and chocolate – milk, not dark, and hot chocolate with marshmallows in the winter!
Nina Dobrev
Mama grizzlies mate later than other bears. They have two cubs instead of four. They wait four years – about twice as long as other bears – between having cubs. And after they’re pregnant, if winter is hard or their health is not good or the food supply is uncertain, they re-absorb the embryo into their body.
Gloria Steinem
England is like the margin of a spring-run: near its source, always green, always cool, always moist, comparatively free from frost in winter and from drought in summer.

Rick Derringer
In temperate zones, winter is the best insecticide; it keeps the bugs in check. The tropics enjoy no such respite, so plants there have developed a wide range of alkaloids that kill off nosy insects and animals.

Brendan Behan
One of my favorite ways to use cilantro is in a beautiful clear soup with monkfish and lime. It’s a great dish for cooler weather, especially because monkfish is very good in fall and winter. Also, I like the meatiness and rich texture of monkfish.
Nobu Matsuhisa

Debi Mazar
The buyer is entitled to a bargain. The seller is entitled to a profit. So there is a fine margin in between where the price is right. I have found this to be true to this day whether dealing in paper hats, winter underwear or hotels.
Conrad Hilton
Living indoors without fresh air quickly poisons the blood and makes people feel tired and seedy when they don’t know why. For myself, I sleep out of doors in winter as well as summer. I only feel tired or seedy when I have been indoors a lot. I only catch cold when I sleep in a room.
Robert Baden-Powell
I have a really basic uniform: in winter, black tights and any old dress that I can throw on. In summer, high-waisted jeans and this shirt, or that shirt, and a cashmere cardigan just in case.
Claudia Schiffer
My first real acting gig was probably playing Mamillius in my mother’s ‘Winter’s Tale.’ My mom and dad are both in theater, so I grew up acting and being a little theater brat as well.
Logan Marshall-Green

Thomas Carlyle
When I watch the Olympics I become such an emotional wreck. I’ve always loved the Olympics, be it the summer or the winter Olympics.
Bryn Terfel
Each solstice is a domain of experience unto itself. At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. At the Winter Solstice, the wind is cold, trees are bare and all lies in stillness beneath blankets of snow.
Gary Zukav
I travel pretty much every weekend of the summer. And then during the winter, I still do appearances and a couple contests here and there.

Ann Hood
When I was at the South Pole, the coldest it got – and I didn’t go outside – was minus 111. That was during the winter, so it’s dark 24 hours a day, and for some of our jobs, we are required to go outside, even in weather like that.
Christina Koch
Winter testing is essential but there comes a point whe

Winter testing is essential but there comes a point where you have had enough of all the rehearsals and the pretend racing. You just want to get down to the real action.
Damon Hill
Now is the winter of our discontent.
William Shakespeare
For the winter, I think dark lips, any dark lip for the winter is really cool.
Dinah Jane
Of all the seasons, winter is the most conducive to the great art of dormancy. This art requires an appreciation of semi-consciousness: the beautiful and necessary prelude to sleep – a special pleasure in itself that is all too often neglected, under-valued or looked down upon.
Michael Leunig
I was writing rap at 12 years old and began writing songs as a 20-year-old. I think I wrote my first song in the winter of 2008-2009, when I was in Buenos Aires. I was writing about growing up and my boys back home.
Lukas Forchhammer

Tony Fadell
I’m obsessed with not chucking away food. I’m lucky enough to have a gardener, so we grow sweetcorn, tomatoes, beetroots, cabbages, pumpkins, lettuce. I’m trying to get into blanching it and freezing so I don’t have to buy veg over the winter, but then you need loads of freezers, and that’s not ideal.
Stella McCartney
My favorite holiday memory was sitting at home all day in my pajamas during winter break for school watching a bunch of old Christmas movies like ‘Jack Frost’ and ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’ with my siblings and parents.
Becky G
I’m working seven days a week in the fall. I couldn’t possibly keep that up. This is only for the fall. In the last couple of years I’ve tended to do most of my serious writing in the winter, when there’s nothing going on with football.
Gregg Easterbrook
Never take a job where winter winds can blow up your pants.
Geraldo Rivera

Seasonality in winter doesn’t have to mean sleep-inducing, stew-like, starchy casseroles.
Yotam Ottolenghi
At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. At the Winter Solstice, the wind is cold, trees are bare and all lies in stillness beneath blankets of snow.
Gary Zukav
I’m about 255, but I’d weigh under 220 if I weren’t in football. In the hot summer, I feel the extra weight is taxing on my respiratory system. I don’t mind it in the winter.
Mike Webster
I love winter. It’s a beautiful time, but also a melancholic time, a reflective time, and I’d come to a point in my life where I felt I had to make certain decisions about my career.
Katie Melua
I realized there might be monetary or financial reasons to jump in and write a ‘Winter’s Bone Retriumphs’ or something, and nobody would object to me doing that in publishing. But it would be a waste of my time, and they always take a little longer than you thought they would take.
Daniel Woodrell
It was a true honor to have represented my country at my first Paralympic Winter Games and proud to bring home gold and silver medals for the U.S.

I’ve never gotten used to winter and never will.

The Progressive Blues Experiment, Johnny Winter… and Still Alive and Well is my favorite rock record.

The video for ‘Last Christmas’ was shot in the early winter of 1984 in the Swiss ski resort of Saas Fee. It was a glorious affair, and the two days we spent shooting it were a riot of laughter and fun, which I think comes across.
Andrew Ridgeley
I think there's something charming about incorporating

I think there’s something charming about incorporating summer clothes into winter, like pairing a summery skirt with a massive sweater. I’m also really into layering during the winter!
Debby Ryan
I was sent to boarding school – a grim place. The only good thing the headmaster did for us was every Sunday evening in the winter he would show us films in the chapel. He couldn’t afford a sound projector, so we saw silent films, which you could then still rent from photographic shops.
Kevin Brownlow
Happiness is a by-product rather than an end in itself. It pops into your life unbidden, and then tends to pop out again. I’m on record as being depressive. It is related to winter.
Monty Don
Winter is nature’s way of saying, ‘Up yours.’
Robert Byrne
A fan sent me a pair of fluffy winter socks, and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s cool. I’ll wear them to bed. It’s cold; it’s winter.’ But they were worn. They were black underneath, and they stunk, and I hate feet. She was like, ‘I’m giving you my favorite pair.’
Ella Henderson
I wasn’t banned from skiing but didn’t go much in college because I couldn’t afford it, and there just wasn’t the time. I played football all winter, then in summer I did track and field and played volleyball.
Dean Cain
One winter, I went to Erfoud to research trilobites and got to know the quarries, the dealers, and the remote mining villages. They are not easy places to visit, and this was a completely unknown corner of the world economy: children slaving away on desert cliffs to furnish wealthy collectors in San Francisco.
Lawrence Osborne
Hollywood is a perpetual summerland, a temperate, godless yaw where the very word ‘season’ has been co-opted by television executives. There are few harbingers of winter here.
Diablo Cody
It’s called Sisters of the Winter Madrigal. It was interesting for me to see it done after so many years; because I wrote it and I didn’t realize what a rage I was in.
Beth Henley
And we have a little herb garden, which survived the winter thanks to global warming. It makes me feel like a cool, old Italian housewife, that I kept my rosemary alive outside all winter.
Elizabeth Gilbert
In the winter, I read next to a wood-burning stove. In the summer, we have a place up in Michigan where I like to read in a hammock. It’s almost entirely hidden by cedar trees and right up by the water. You can climb in there and see nothing but water and be seen by nobody. It’s perfect.
Ethan Canin
And some places you been before are so great that you don’t ever mind going back. Some places you been before you don’t ever want to go back, you know, like Montreal in the Winter.
Morgan Freeman
I had slumps that lasted into the winter.

Jane Leavy
I came into Chicago in winter – I’d never been so cold in my life! I was very homesick, and a poor student at that time. America seemed so different and so filled with amazing things – and almost all of them were out of my reach.
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Thus, during the winter of 2003 I ventured into a new arena as a professional photographer.

My father was a prosperous hatter-farmer – making hats for the local markets during the winter months, tilling his little ten-acre farm during the summer time.
Jenkin Lloyd Jones
I’d studied dance in Chicago every summer end taught it all winter, and I was well-rounded. I wasn’t worried about getting a job on Broadway. In fact, I got one the first week.
Gene Kelly
As winter approaches – bringing cold weather and family drama – we crave page-turners, books made for long nights and tryptophan-induced sloth.
Sarah MacLean
In the winter, I enjoy cross-country skiing and raising orchids and amaryllises. If I could grow tropical flowers as perennials, I would, especially hibiscus and mandavilla.
Diane Ackerman
As the Olympic torch neared Lake Placid, N.Y., in 1980, signaling the opening of that year’s Winter Olympics, newspapers and magazines throughout the world offered predictions on who would win medals in the major sports. Not a single publication gave the American men’s hockey team a chance against the world powers.
Don Yaeger
I have always had strong maternal instincts. Even when I was still a child I cut out pictures of prams from newspapers and imagined the feeling of pushing my own pram through fresh winter snow and seeing the wheels’ tracks behind me in the snow.
Agnetha Faltskog
I did ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ two years in a row in the winter in Seattle, and that was an amazing experience both times.
Jinkx Monsoon
If the Halcyon days of a Mediterranean winter, god-blessed, were good enough for sublime kingfishers they should certainly have something to offer us all.
Bettany Hughes
It feels silly to watch endless hours of winter sports every four years, when we never watch them any other time, and we don’t even understand the rules, which doesn’t stop us from scoring everyone, every run, every skate, every race.
Jill Lepore
I was raised in California, so this whole New York winter thing is completely new for me. I’ve already justified buying seven coats!
Blake Lively
It’s almost as if the Swedes have two different personalities: one for winter and one for summer. I am both a happy and a melancholic person. It’s complex as I get so much from life.
Sofia Helin
We evolved living in more sunlight than today. We make our own vitamin D when sunlight hits our skin cells. Many people living in the northern hemisphere, however, suffer from lower levels of vitamin D during the fall, winter and spring.
Paul Stamets
When I was 13, tennis became more of my life. It’s when I gave up skiing, I gave up winter sports. I still played varsity basketball my freshman year of high school – basketball was the last sport I gave up for my tennis.
Pam Shriver
I want to age the way that life makes you age, because there’s beauty in autumn and winter and I think people forget that.
Helen Baxendale
But I plan on dedicating specific training to track thi

Joe Lycett
I like the world, but I feel very, very Italian. I love the small parts of my country: Tuscany, Capri in the winter. I don’t like big towns.
Luca Cordero di Montezemolo
I believe in process. I believe in four seasons. I believe that winter’s tough, but spring’s coming. I believe that there’s a growing season. And I think that you realize that in life, you grow. You get better.
Steve Southerland
It is the life of the crystal, the architect of the flake, the fire of the frost, the soul of the sunbeam. This crisp winter air is full of it.
John Burroughs
When people ask me why is ‘Winter’s Tale’ a fantasy, I point out that it is not a fantasy.
Mark Helprin
I think bare legs in winter are idiotic. Unless your naked pins are toned, tanned and veinless, it’s best to cover up. There is nothing more elegant in winter than dark tights worn with matching knee-length boots and a belted trench coat.
Joan Collins
My door was open part of the time, and part of the time I tried to get a nap and their voices annoyed me, and I closed it. I kept it open in summer more or less, and closed in winter.
Lizzie Andrew Borden
At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. At the Winter Solstice, the wind is cold, trees are bare and all lies in stillness beneath blankets of snow.
Gary Zukav
Of course, the outcome of the war would not have been changed. The war was lost perhaps, when it was started. At least it was lost in the winter of ’42, in Russia.
Adolf Galland
The Bowery Hotel is always a great place to meet people for drinks. It’s so cozy in there, especially in the late fall and winter.
Ari Graynor
I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer.
Brendan Behan
Once upon a time there was a piece of wood. It was not an expensive piece of wood. Far from it. Just a common block of firewood, one of those thick, solid logs that are put on the fire in winter to make cold rooms cozy and warm.
Carlo Collodi
If we fail to develop a national coordinated response, based in science, I fear the pandemic will get far worse and be prolonged, causing unprecedented illness and fatalities. Without better planning, 2020 could be the darkest winter in modern history.
Rick Bright
Usually the thing that signifies that I’m done with the winter and all that is that I start skateboarding.
Shaun White
By the winter of 1945-1946, the Russian peoples were being warned of the dangers from the West.
Carroll Quigley
As sure as the spring will follow the winter, prosperity and economic growth will follow recession.
Bo Bennett
In Finland in the winter, when the sky is totally choked with clouds, the country becomes one big sensory deprivation tank.
Charles Platt
In the summer you want fresh, light and sort of quick things; in winter you want things that are comforting, so your body really tells you you want to go towards potatoes, apples, fennel, things that are warm and comforting. And loin of pork.
Ina Garten
Every winter my wife and I take a week off and go to a resort in Florida.
John C. Bogle
People don’t notice whether it’s winter or summer when they’re happy.

Self-care. I got that from my mom. Even if we had nothing, we were always moisturized. So much Vaseline. In the dead of winter, I was hot. I had a whole other layer on.
Saint Jhn
There was a computer in our garage when I was growing up, and I’d go out there in winter and wrap myself in a blanket and write a story.

Snoh Aalegra
Every time we visit my sister Karen in New Zealand I spend the next two months Googling properties and dreaming of escaping the British winter.
Tess Daly
And some places you been before are so great that you don’t ever mind going back. Some places you been before you don’t ever want to go back, you know, like Montreal in the Winter.
Morgan Freeman
The Christian Bible is a symbolic book, not a literal one. The one Christians know as Jesus was actually a symbol for the sun. Ancient sun worshippers believed the sun died at the end of the winter solstice and then three days later it would be reborn at the start of its cycle – December 25.
David Icke
I remember my dad took my ice skates. One day I asked m

I remember my dad took my ice skates. One day I asked my mum: ‘Where are my ice skates?’ because I loved to skate in the winter. And she said through tears: ‘Dad is selling them now… we don’t have money for this week.’
Dejan Lovren
I can only get my drummer in the winter; he plays with Grand Funk all summer.
Bob Seger

I have a house in the Connecticut countryside where you’ll always find me, summer or winter.
Candace Bushnell
I wanted the collection for Target to reinterpret all the must-haves of Stella McCartney for winter and to make my designs more accessible to a wider audience in Australia.
Stella McCartney
As you prepare for the many things that fall brings, such as school, harvest and winter, it is important to be prepared for the unthinkable. Supplies and a plan will significantly reduce panic and chaos in the event of an emergency.
Mike Crapo
Spring starts in January in the Ozarks, lurches on in a complicated way, with spurts and setbacks, until May. Then, early in May, there is a cold spell known as blackberry winter because it comes when blackberries bloom. It is a worrisome week for anyone who farms.
Sue Hubbell
In winter, I plot and plan. In spring, I move.
Henry Rollins
I wore No. 24 at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada – one bib on the back and one on the front – and those are like my medals.
Eddie the Eagle
Just to be able to say that I’m from Miami, Florida, in the Winter Olympics was an honor, and I’m proud to be able to say that I’m playing on the U.S. national team for baseball from Miami as a Cuban-American.
Eddy Alvarez
Winter dressing is all about having chic outerwear.
George Kotsiopoulos
No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.
Hal Borland
We have a house near East Hampton, and of all the beaches I’ve been to, I think there is something so beautiful about Long Island beaches. I love them in the fall and winter.
Aerin Lauder
In the Arctic, the Inuit are saying water and land are the same; they’re an unbroken unity. In the winter, you travel on the ice because it’s the linkage and the easiest way, and in the summer, you move around on the water.
John Ralston Saul
I am the sort of athlete who participates in a lot of winter sports – basketball, for example, is an activity that I’ll spend many hours a week watching.
W. Bruce Cameron
I used to play badminton in winter.
Isa Guha
All sounds are sharper in winter; the air transmits better.
John Burroughs
Confit is not something that comes to mind for summer. Usually it means duck confit, made by cooking the legs and thighs in duck fat to preserve them for winter.
Geoffrey Zakarian
I like cool jackets – a nice fall or winter coat. You can get a lot of use out of it, and you’ll wear it frequently, so it can really set the tone of your uniform for the season.
John Legend
The country is more of a wilderness, more of a wild solitude, in the winter than in the summer. The wild comes out. The urban, the cultivated, is hidden or negatived.
John Burroughs
An Indian’s dress of deer skins, which is wet a hundred times upon his back, dries soft; and his lodge also, which stands in the rains, and even through the severity of winter, is taken down as soft and as clean as when it was first put up.
George Catlin
I need a long, cold winter.
John Rzeznik
Every year, I travel extensively in the autumn and the spring. I set most of the winter and summer aside for my family and my own tribal relatives. But during that traveling time, I often find myself visiting other native communities around the continent – perhaps a dozen or more each year.
Joseph Bruchac
In the winter of 2012, as my fiftieth birthday approached, I began to write what turned into my autobiography, a look at my own life through the lens of food.
Kate Christensen
In the Fall of 1774 & Winter of 1775, I was one of upwards of thirty, chiefly mechanics, who formed ourselves into a committee for the purpose of watching the movements of the British soldiers, and gaining every intelligence of the movements of the Tories.
Paul Revere
When I got the script for ‘Winter Soldier,’ I was so excited to see that my character finally gets to punch somebody! So I took tae kwon do three times a week. I wanted to feel like I could hold my own in a roomful of superheroes.
Cobie Smulders
I think winter wear is communal. You get some gloves and a scarf from a lost-and-found box, wash them, wear them for a while until you lose them. Then somebody else does the same thing.
Adrian Grenier
Originally developed in Germany in the 18th Century, ice wine is made from grapes that have been left on the vines until deep winter when the fruits, frozen by ice, contain more concentrated sugar. Only then are they are harvested, sometimes at night.
Carol Drinkwater
Every spring, I begin cutting my firewood for the upcoming winter. It should be cut months ahead of time so it will dry and cure.
Sue Hubbell
For those of you who don’t understand Reaganomics, it’s based on the principle that the rich and the poor will get the same amount of ice. In Reaganomics, however, the poor get all of theirs in winter.
Mo Udall
There is no winter break, and I think that is the most evil thing of this culture. It is not good for English football. It is not good for the clubs or the national team, and I think you should change it.
Louis van Gaal
The United States of America, justifiably and proudly,

The United States of America, justifiably and proudly, went to war in Afghanistan in early winter of 2001. The United States invaded Iraq on a false premise in the spring of 2003.
Mike Barnicle
One great thing about going to a fashion event in the morning, especially in February in New York, is that the other attendees are dressed less like models themselves. A winter coat, it turns out, is a great equalizer.
Josh Gondelman
Autumn arrives in early morning, but spring at the close of a winter day.
Elizabeth Bowen
I used to swim with these beavers in a beaver pond when I was 10. I went back when I was 11 and found there were no more beavers. I found that trappers had taken them all, so I became quite angry, and that winter I began to walk the trap lines and free animals from the traps and destroy the traps.
Paul Watson
It’s not unusual for people to like Florida in the winter. I’m not a great tourist. I like coming down to work.
Israel Horovitz
My go-to drink in the winter to fight colds and flus is about 3.4 ounces of water mixed with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, lots of cayenne pepper and cinnamon, one lemon, and 1 teaspoon of raw honey.
Kelly Gale
We did a play in the third grade all about Winter not wanting to give over his throne to Spring. That was my first title role, and I took full advantage of it. I felt like there was no one else on that stage but Ms. Spring.
Lynn Whitfield
By the beginning of the 20th Century, Cannes and the coastal strip that winds its rocky way to Monaco was the winter resort for the rich, the Royals and a few well-heeled writers and artists, such as the impressionist painter Auguste Renoir.
Carol Drinkwater
For sure, Potrero Chico is a super nice winter vacation climbing area. It’s really convenient to fly into Monterrey, one of the nicer cities in Mex, and get a taxi to Potero. Then you can just live in the camping area and walk everywhere. It’s muy tranquilo, as they say there.
Alex Honnold
That last winter was a tragic story and I got no personal honour out of it but I was a witness to it.
Laurie Lee
The perfect winter’s night for me would be with all the family together. As you get a little older and everybody has their jobs and then families and kids, it definitely becomes harder to get everybody together at once.
Charles Kelley
I was in Cuba in the winter of 1937. I was playing in Cuba, and I’m in the shower, and I slipped and caught myself with my right arm. I felt something pull right then. Then, in ’38, when I came back, my arm was messed up.
Leon Day
And finally Winter, with its bitin’, whinin’ wind, and all the land will be mantled with snow.
Roy Bean
Obviously, we’re focused on the Winter Classic.
Gary Bettman
I thought that some of my best records was when there wasn’t a lot of work being done on it, like ‘Winter in America’ and ‘Secrets’ and when there weren’t a whole lot of people in the studios.
Gil Scott-Heron
Living indoors without fresh air quickly poisons the blood and makes people feel tired and seedy when they don’t know why. For myself, I sleep out of doors in winter as well as summer. I only feel tired or seedy when I have been indoors a lot. I only catch cold when I sleep in a room.
Robert Baden-Powell
Don’t get me wrong – it’s amazing playing basketball. But being 19 years old, playing and interacting with grown men with families wasn’t fun all the time, especially during a grueling 82-game season. That, mixed with Toronto’s freezing winter climate, made me miss my buddies back at Tech even more.
Chris Bosh
As winter weather settles in around the country, millions of American families are facing skyrocketing home heating prices with even greater impact if cold temperatures persist into the spring.
Russ Carnahan
I get homesick for snow and for winter and for seasons and, really, for weather patterns. But L.A. has some of the best weather, so who can complain when it’s 80 degrees and sunny?
Darby Stanchfield
Give me a hot drink, and I’m happy. Hot cider, hot chocolate, coffee… I like all winter beverages!
Alexis Bledel
I know ‘Hallelujah’ isn’t actually a Christmas song, but it has that cozy, haunting vibe that sounds like a winter’s night and belongs by a fire.
Bonnie McKee
He who marvels at the beauty of the world in summer will find equal cause for wonder and admiration in winter.
John Burroughs
In winter, I plot and plan. In spring, I move.
Henry Rollins
There were 15 people in the village, including five of us. If my father arrested somebody in the winter, he’d have to wait until the thaw to turn him in.
Leslie Nielsen
My parents live in the part of the United States that is Canada. It is so far north that Minnesota lies in the same direction as Miami. They have four distinct seasons: Winter, More Winter, Still More Winter, and That One Day Of Summer.
W. Bruce Cameron
I love Delhi’s winter.
Nushrat Bharucha
I have never seen snow and do not know what winter means.
Duke Kahanamoku
As the winter set in with its customary Canadian severity the real trouble of the French began. They did not suffer from the cold, but they were dying of scurvy.
Harry Johnston
I spend too much time away from home. I love travelling, but we can be away for as much as four months during the winter.
Jonathan Agnew
I loved having bonfires in the winter with my friends in the backyard.
Tommy Dorfman
Left ear, I wear four earrings. The four is symbolic of the four seasons, spring, winter, summer and fall, the four directions, north, east, south and west, the four gospel writers, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
Mr. T
With the approaching winter the air quality in many Ind

With the approaching winter the air quality in many Indian cities, especially in Delhi, becomes a public health hazard. Something so fundamental as breathing easy can no longer be taken for granted. It’s a wake-up call worthy of a civic revolution.
Rohini Nilekani
I remember taking a 4×4 up the Sani Pass in South Africa, which goes up into Lesotho. It’s a dangerous hairpin trail on this treacherous road and I went up in winter. Half of the road stays in the shade. We turned the corner on this hairpin and just hit black ice.
Charley Boorman
In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.
William Blake
Winter is my favourite season for clothes because I’m happiest wearing knitted dresses, leggings, and Uggs.
Rachel Riley
Basically, I like anything with guts – Lead Belly, Bill Big Broonzy, Johnny Winter, the Stones.
Rory Gallagher
In my book ‘The Winter Sea,’ set north of Aberdeen, I couldn’t just ignore the fact some people there – especially the people in the past – would speak the Doric.
Susanna Kearsley
Perhaps because my town was so naturally gothic in its architecture and relative isolation – the roads often closed in winter – my stories tended toward the ghostly and the creepily suspenseful right from the get-go.
Andrew Pyper
There are four seasons in Iran, so you can go winter skiing, you can go in summer to the beach… it’s not a real tourism place, but it’s a nice country if you have family and friends to visit there.
Gegard Mousasi
Known colloquially as ‘winter,’ ‘golden needle,’ and ‘velvet foot’ mushrooms, enoki mushrooms grow across much of the world, inhabiting dead conifer trees and stumps, and generally appearing throughout the late fall and winter months.
Paul Stamets
We Californians can watch the Weather Channel for images of winter’s brutality unleashed upon our fellow Americans and thank our lucky stars we don’t have to contend with it.
Henry Rollins
I love summertime more than anything else in the world. That is the only thing that gets me through the winter, knowing that summer is going to be there.
Jack McBrayer
Time seems to slow down after the winter holiday. New York loses all of its winter romance and is just cold.
Lela Loren
My mother often used to speak about her time during the war and during the famous hunger winter in Holland – in the latter part of the war there was no heating and very little food and so her mother used to say, ‘You stay in bed most of the day to preserve your calories.’
Sean Hepburn Ferrer
Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.
Pietro Aretino
Winter is always the hardest period for rough sleepers because of the climate and the post-Christmas dip in generosity towards anyone begging. And there’s a genuine risk to life for anyone having to sleep out as temperatures plummet.
Dawn Foster
Sometimes, you need to revamp yourself over the winter, participate in things that make you appreciate what you have.
Hannah Teter
All this time I lived with my parents, and wrought on the plantation; and having had schooling pretty well for a planter, I used to improve myself in winter evenings, and other leisure times.
John Woolman
Well, I was born in Miami, and then I lived for a long time in Tallahassee, and before that, Winter Haven, which is a tiny town in Florida. I was not a city girl.
Cheryl Hines
I belong to an improv group, I play cello, I have these phases – fencing, tae kwon do, baseball, ice hockey, boogie boarding in the summer, snowboarding in the winter.
Ty Simpkins
In Minneapolis, the overhead sky walks protect pedestrians from the winter cold and snow.
Bill Dedman
It’s challenging to live in Anacortes. I lived in Olympia for five years, went on tour for a year, ended up in Norway for a winter, and ended up back in Anacortes. But I have a long life ahead of me. I’ll probably live in many different places, and then die in Anacortes.
Phil Elverum
Although in my life the level of loss has never reached the extremes it does in ‘The Winter People,’ I certainly can identify with being both a daughter longing for her mother and being a mother who is almost scared by the intensity of her love for her daughter.
Jennifer McMahon
Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.
Pietro Aretino
Ireland, in breadth, and for wholesomeness and serenity of climate, far surpasses Britain; for the snow scarcely ever lies there above three days: no man makes hay in the summer for winter’s provision, or builds stables for his beasts of burden… the island abounds in milk and honey.
Venerable Bede
In general, just as a framing, we always thought about ‘Winter Soldier’ very specifically as a political thriller.
Anthony Russo
I have never seen snow and do not know what winter means.
Duke Kahanamoku
I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn’t show.
Andrew Wyeth
My signature look is an eighties baby doll dress, combat boots with colorful socks sticking out, and then mounds of jewelry. I love silver and turquoise. I go to Montana every winter, so I hunt around for cool pieces there.
Zoey Deutch
I love summertime more than anything else in the world. That is the only thing that gets me through the winter, knowing that summer is going to be there.
Jack McBrayer
My granny would come out and stay with us in the winter, and we would listen to the reports from the coastal stations and have a discussion in the middle of Glasgow about what the weather was like in Tiree.
Johann Lamont
I find it easier to write in the winter in Melbourne. When the weather is good you want to go out for a walk, ride a bike, go to a cafe or something. When it’s raining, when it’s a miserable day, I just sit down at my desk and get some work done.
Adrian McKinty
I went to see Billy Connolly do two hours with no break

I went to see Billy Connolly do two hours with no break at the Apollo, with Parkinson’s disease, during the winter, and it was one of the most important gigs I have seen in my life.
Aisling Bea
The work that we do during the winter is very important; we have a new bike and it’s important to develop it during this time, and we start with this test.
Valentino Rossi
In winter, the stars seem to have rekindled their fires, the moon achieves a fuller triumph, and the heavens wear a look of a more exalted simplicity. Summer is more wooing and seductive, more versatile and human, appeals to the affections and the sentiments, and fosters inquiry and the art impulse.
John Burroughs
Nothing is as easy to make as a promise this winter to do something next summer; this is how commencement speakers are caught.
Sydney J. Harris
But I do feel a little teeny right now that I’m just about ready to start, and winter is entering. Half past autumn has arrived.
Gordon Parks
I try to eat a plant-based diet, but it is challenging in the winter months and traveling all the time. I just do my best every day to eat healthy, wholesome foods.
Jamie Anderson
Here’s how much I know about hockey. Mike Royko and I were in a tiny bar one winter night, and the radio kept reporting goals by the Blackhawks. I mentioned how frequently the team was scoring. ‘You’re listening to the highlights,’ Royko observed.
Roger Ebert
All around us right now, tucked into the valleys and along the coasts, bookshops glow in the winter light. Think of them like singular, magical, and multi-dimensional recipe boxes. They wait for us to pluck out a card, to stand over the stove, to start cooking.
Anthony Doerr
The winter’s a little bit daunting in Montana.
Phil Jackson
I’d love to play Constance in ‘King John’ or Paulina in ‘The Winter’s Tale.’ I’d like to go on working till I drop.
Prunella Scales
My wife and I spent the winter in Worcestershire. This allowed me to tell everyone back home in the States, ‘We are wintering in Worcestershire.’ This may be a sentence that has never actually been uttered in human history, even by people who spend all their winters in Worcestershire.
Christopher Buckley
I come from nothing. I come from sleeping in the kitchen with my family with the oven open to keep us warm during winter, you know? When you come from that background, all this extra stuff is just… extra stuff, you know?
Michael B. Jordan
Crumpets for me are the quintessence of a British afternoon tea, the ideal winter warmer that would welcome me home from school.
Rachel Khoo
In the winter, things are dead and dull, but then there is an explosion of life. That’s what He promises people who believe in His Son. That’s what all the Robertsons are banking on.
Si Robertson
My six favorite textures for fall and winter are leather, fur, tweed, mohair, velvet and wool. I love that they are all as warm as they are fashionable and easy to incorporate into your wardrobe.
Nina Garcia
Knitwear can play a vital part in layering. The simplicity of a lightweight cardigan makes it one of the best ways to layer outfits. I love granddad cardis for winter, worn over a vintage lace shirt, waistcoat and full skirt with slouchy boots.
Twiggy
‘Winter’s Bone’ really suited having a lower budget. It would be so hard rolling into a rural setting, a place where people are poor, and to be thinking you’ve got $10 million to make a piece of entertainment.
Debra Granik
For Man City, and the teams up the top or even the teams at the bottom, if you’re getting into your stride at that time, the winter break can almost break it and when you come back you could be doing the opposite things.
Shaun Wright-Phillips
We just started filming ‘Stray Dog’ really close to the finishing of ‘Winter’s Bone,’ down in Southern Missouri.
Debra Granik
You can never have enough winter jackets.
Dizzee Rascal
I’m a huge fan of mafia history – mostly the Italian mafia but also their associates, as well as Whitey Bulger and the Winter Hill Gang.
Rob Van Dam
I am definitely a summer person. Don’t get me wrong: I love winter when it’s beautiful and sunny – I don’t really care about cold – I just hate the grey.
Doutzen Kroes
When I work, I wear pants usually because I want to be comfortable. I wear dark colors, especially in winter, because I don’t want to concentrate on myself but on what I’m working on. Because I really, really love clothes, I can start to think too much about myself. It’s distracting.
Donatella Versace
Songs that aren’t even remotely connected to Christmas are now officially canonized Christmas tunes. ‘Frosty the Snowman,’ ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘Winter Wonderland’ never mention anything religious but are still notches in Christmas’ belt of musical dominance.
Matisyahu
I remember three- and four-week-long snow days, and drifts so deep a small child, namely me, could get lost in them. No such winter exists in the record, but that’s how Ohio winters seemed to me when I was little – silent, silver, endless, and dreamy.
Susan Orlean
Global trade has advantages. For starters, it allows those of us who live through winter to eat fresh produce year-round. And it provides economic benefits to farmers who grow that food.
David Suzuki
There is winter in L.A., there is rain in L.A. But there is no rain on ‘Entourage.’
Emily Ratajkowski
I practice a lot. I practice in the winter when it’s cold in Connecticut – a lot. I practice in my bedroom on the carpet – a lot. For all the practice I do, I should be a better golfer than I am.
Stuart Scott
We need to drive like hell and get to the hills before the winter sets in.
Steven Squyres
We as children went up the mountain to find feed for livestock, like goats, cows and horses, and because in the winter time we would light the fire in the house, we would climb the mountain to collect firewood as well. Because of that, I suppose I became used to climbing mountains.
Tamae Watanabe
I grew up in New Hampshire. My closest neighbor was a mile away. The deer and the raccoons were my friends. So I would spend time walking through the woods, looking for the most beautiful tropical thing that can survive the winter in the woods in New Hampshire.
Steven Tyler
I really, really liked shooting and doing the scene wit

I really, really liked shooting and doing the scene with Emilia Clarke and Peter Dinklage at the end of ‘Winds of Winter,’ when she gives him the Hand of the Queen. Because we shot it very simply. We felt like we had managed to do something that was visual but really was a very intimate scene between two people.
Miguel Sapochnik
When they set off for their first day at their new school, I will never forget that winter morning as I watched our girls, just 7 and 10 years old, pile into those black SUVs with all those big men with guns.
Michelle Obama
God is day and night, winter and summer, war and peace, surfeit and hunger.
Heraclitus
There is no pressure on me, I can take a lot of risks in the coming weeks. I feel free to ski the way I decide on race-day because the overall title was not my main target this winter.
Hermann Maier
We are the last remaining country to allow ourselves two breaks in the season. You just have to look at England, Italy and Spain, they play right through the season. We on the other hand take six weeks off in the winter until the end of January, and that is a luxury.
Franz Beckenbauer
I played rugby in the winter, cricket in the summer, and for a brief period was on the books at Cardiff City. Athletics was only sports day for me. In fact, I never really liked it. I was never too keen on a sport that didn’t have a ball at your feet.
Lynn Davies
You know it’s a real winter when Bostonians are telling you that they’ve never experienced anything like it.
Marcus Smart
Those who know the sport of swimming understand that the grueling practices that fill a pre-Olympic winter lay the base for any success that might come later in the Games, especially if one has it in mind to swim an astonishing eight events.
Michael Paterniti
I would say just the weather in Vancouver in the winter can be kind of unforgiving.
Brandon Jay McLaren
I want to win trophies in the summer and not accolades in the winter.
Toni Kroos
You can’t get too much winter in the winter.
Robert Frost
The idea is to freeze the water in the winter and use it in late spring. The conical tower shape ensures that the surface exposed to the sun is minimal, so premature melting is avoided.
Sonam Wangchuk
What made the days leading up to the iPhone launch even crazier was that Apple had pulled off the greatest disappearing act in tech promotion history. In January 2007, Jobs announced the long-awaited iPhone. But somewhere that winter, the iPhone vanished.
Steven Levy
Halloween isn’t the only time for ghosts and ghost stories. In Victorian Britain, spooky winter’s tales were part of the Christmas season, often told after dinner, over port or coffee.
Michael Dirda
I straighten my hair very few times throughout the year, and it’s only in the cold winter months because it’s the only time my hair will stay straight. If there is, like, a tiny bit of humidity in the air, it’s curly again.
Michelle Wolf
I look forward to going to Chicago because it’s where I grew up, and the food there is so munch. Especially during the winter, I get deep dish pizza or Italian beef, and it warms me up. It’s something I don’t normally get, especially here in L.A. where you’re always trying to be healthy.
Ron Funches
In the winter, I always buy frozen organic berries instead of fresh. They are frozen as soon as they’re harvested, so they actually have a higher vitamin content than fresh this time of year.
Katie Lee
I just love putting on the uniform; it’s what I have done since I was 6 or 7 years old. It’s the life I know. If I didn’t love the life of baseball, I wouldn’t work out like I do every winter.
Steve Finley
There’s nothing better than curling up with a good book and sitting in front of the fire on winter evenings.
Leo Sayer
I love cookies baking. During the winter, they have these candles that smell like cookies, and I always buy like a hundred of them.
Jared Padalecki
When I was coming up in high school, if you wanted to be in the musical it was during the winter, so I had to choose between playing basketball or being in the musical. And I ended up playing basketball.
Ben Schwartz
We cling to our own point of view, as though everything depended on it. Yet our opinions have no permanence; like autumn and winter, they gradually pass away.
Zhuangzi
I’m telling you, until I shaved my head, I never realized how much heat is lost through the top of the head. I walk out in winter and it feels like I have an ice pack on my head. Unbelievable.
Bryan Cranston
I have come to regard November as the older, harder man’s October. I appreciate the early darkness and cooler temperatures. It puts my mind in a different place than October. It is a month for a quieter, slightly more subdued celebration of summer’s death as winter tightens its grip.
Henry Rollins
Everything in London is quite good, apart from the weather: it’s cold and rainy there, and the winter is long.
Sayed Kashua
In the immediate aftermath of the hurricane, I sent a letter to EPA Administrator Stephen L Johnson urging him to waive regulations to allow for the early sale of winter grade fuel to help with gasoline shortages and gasoline prices.
Bob Ney
My favorite band – and Bobby Cannavale and Terry Winter have already made fun of me for this – is Chicago.
Ray Romano
Regardless of what you look like, regardless of where you come from, you can be involved in winter sports.
Elana Meyers
Winter horseshoes are equipped with little spikes that give a horse traction on snow and ice and prevent it from slipping.
Saul David
I read somewhere that Mitt and I have a ‘storybook marriage.’ Well, in the storybooks I read, there were never long, long, rainy winter afternoons in a house with five boys screaming at once. And those storybooks never seemed to have chapters called MS or breast cancer.
Ann Romney
I love outdoor winter activities like snow tubing and snowball throwing.
Kat Graham
We are all treading the vanishing road of a song in the

We are all treading the vanishing road of a song in the air, the vanishing road of the spring flowers and the winter snows, the vanishing roads of the winds and the streams, the vanishing road of beloved faces.
Richard Le Gallienne
It’s not the winter that bothers me – it’s the summers.
Walter Alston
Winter blues are cured every time with a potato gratin paired with a roast chicken.
Alex Guarnaschelli
He thinks with regret of the great days when he could at harvest time at least go down into Hungary and work on the big estates and bring back, as his wage, a side of bacon for the winter. That was wealth, to him.
Douglas Reed
Fueling our bodies properly can lift our moods immensely on any winter day!
Natalya Neidhart
Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen.
Willa Cather
I’m such a tomboy – I was raised in the South – and I also really wanted to work in New York, being so different from California, though it was a freezing-cold winter.
Jessica Stroup
Very little is known about Hugh Glass as a real guy that existed 200 years ago, except that he was attacked by a bear, betrayed and left for dead, and has to survive in the winter. I said, ‘What really drives a human to survive those conditions?’
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
I bring a poofy gray down jacket with me wherever I go. It’s meant for winter, but I use it most in the summer, when everyone cranks up the air-conditioning.
Leslie Mann
And I did feel there was an album to be made about winter that can make you feel the way Sinatra and Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline make me feel – warm, nostalgic and comforted.
Katie Melua
I love the winter produce – apples, squashes and pumpkins.
Paul Wahlberg
I’ve bumped into at least three people in town who all insist ‘Winter’s Bone’ is about them.
Daniel Woodrell
From my grandmother, I started drinking warm water with lemon every morning just before breakfast. That’s something she has been doing for years. It has helped me a lot with digestion. And then also eating seasonal fruit and vegetables, like not eating tomatoes in the winter.
Margherita Missoni
Every year when I put away my winter clothes and get out my summer clothes, they fit. And I haven’t been on a diet since the Reagan administration.
Victoria Moran
One of my earliest political memories was watching the then-Labour Home Secretary Merlyn Rees on television during the Winter of Discontent telling the nation that the lights were, literally, about to go out.
Alok Sharma
I have a list of stuff I need to do during the day. I try to do a couple of hours of professional stuff, be it hockey stuff I haven’t gotten to the last little while, husband stuff, everything to repairing stuff around the house that I neglected around the winter.
Barry Trotz
For the first time in 15 years, Georgia this winter has its electric power guaranteed without deficit. This is a historic achievement.
Mikheil Saakashvili
I don’t recommend this, but my dad – to help us get through the winter, he bought a kerosene heater, and he had it in the kitchen so that the furnace wouldn’t have to kick off.
Chris Gibson
I’m from Sweden, so I don’t enjoy winter at all; there’s nothing cute about it.
Lykke Li
K-2 in winter is something people had thought about for a long time, but had never accomplished. For me, more satisfaction came from winter K2 because it was done in a different manner and style, a message of team unification rather than just me climbing for myself.
Nirmal Purja
The pine stays green in winter… wisdom in hardship.
Norman Douglas
From Enve Composites to Bluehouse Skis, Utah companies are making breakthrough products for biking, winter sports, water sports and more.
Gary Herbert
Many human beings say that they enjoy the winter, but what they really enjoy is feeling proof against it.
Richard Adams
If you’ve ever lived in Chicago, anyone who has, they know what a winter in Chicago is like. To be going through a tough time here in the winter would be just be all the more worse.
Lee DeWyze
The neck on which diamonds might have worthily sparkled, will look less tempting when the biting winter has hung icicles there for gems.
Samuel Lover
I love winter clothes. For me, it is all about choosing great materials and getting the right cut for your body – and then styling it right. For example, I love an oversized manly jacket, but I’ll team it with some girly heels.
Jeanne Damas
