It's Wordy Wednesday!

Hi and welcome to our weekly look at quotes and sayings. Following on from Claire’s smashing Mojo Monday article, I thought I would take a look at the weather, especially winter and snow!

Where does the white go when the snow melts? ~Hugh Kieffer

A snowflake is one of God's most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together! ~Author Unknown

When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels. ~Author Unknown

There's one good thing about snow, it makes your lawn look as nice as your neighbour's. ~Clyde Moore

There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing. ~Alfred Wainwright

The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found? ~J.B. Priestley

When snow falls, nature listens. ~Antoinette van Kleeff

The trouble with weather forecasting is that it's right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it. ~Patrick Young

A lot of people like snow. I find it to be an unnecessary freezing of water. ~Carl Reiner

O, wind,
If Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?
~Percy Bysshe Shelley

In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy. ~William Blake

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

One kind word can warm three winter months. ~Japanese Proverb

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

Hope they don't make you feel too chilly?
Thank you for joining us again this week and I hope you find some inspiration and something to ponder amongst the quotes I've chosen.

  1. Hi Edna - some fab quotes again. I used to love the snow when I was a child, in recent years I have grown to loathe it (too cold and terrified of falling!) but these quotes reminded me that snow can be magical too - but I think mostly I agree with the Carl Reiner quote!
    Thanks Colette, for another fab word art!
    Love, Karen xx
