Just some Snow Quotes that I stumbled upon...

... And thought you might enjoy. You are lovely, dears. xxx

Lo. sifted through the winds that blow, Down comes the soft and silent snow, White petals from the flowers that grow In the cold atmosphere. ~
George W. Bungay

~ 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

~ In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak midwinter, Long ago. ~
Christina Rossetti

~ Come, night; come, Romeo; come, thou day in night; For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night Whiter than new snow upon a raven's back. ~
William Shakespeare

~ Through the sharp air a flaky torrent flies, Mocks the slow sight, and hides the gloomy skies; The fleecy clouds their chilly bosoms bare, And shed their substance on the floating air. ~
George Crabbe

~ Out of the bosom of the Air, Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken, Over the woodlands brown and bare, Over the harvest-fields forsaken, Silent, and soft, and slow Descends the snow. ~
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

~ Don't complain about the snow on your neighbor's roof when your own doorstep is unclean. ~

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

    And how did Confucius know I was complaining about the snow on my neighbour's roof? Scary. :)

  2. What an interesting quote! I'm not sure, perhaps Confucious was psychic? :)

  4. Oooh! I like these quotes and they're by some of my favourite writers too!
