No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.
—Stanislaus Jerzy Lee
The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball.
I have never seen snow and do not know what winter means.
Even in winter an isolated patch of snow has a special quality.
And finally Winter, with its bitin', whinin' wind, and all the land will be mantled with snow.
A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water.
Skiing consists of wearing $3,000 worth of clothes and equipment and driving 200 miles in the snow in order to stand around at a bar and drink.
—P. J. O'Rourke
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.
Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow.
The year hastens to its close. What is it to me? That I am twenty-five or fifty-eight is as nothing. Should I mourn that the spring flowers are gone, that the summer fruit has ripened, that the harvest is reaped, that the snow has fallen?
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
Coming from Chicago, I like a white Christmas.
