Thoughts for Thursday: Winter

Thoughts for Thursday is a feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is winter. I figured, why not?

"Winter is coming." --George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

"In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer."--Albert Camus

"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home."--Edith Sitwell

"You can't get too much winter in the winter."--Robert Frost

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, 'Go to sleep, darlings, til the summer comes again.'"--Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

"While I relish our warm months, winter forms our character and brings out our best."--Tom Allen
Which quote about winter is your favorite? Do you have one to add?
