Where is the subject that does not branch out into infinity? For every grain of sand is a mystery; so is every daisy in summer, and so is every snowflake in Winter. Both upwards and downwards, and all around us, science and speculation pass into mystery at last.
Sweet bird! thy bower is ever green, Thy sky is ever clear; Thou hast no sorrow in thy song, No Winter in thy year.john logan
Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen.Willa Sibert Cather
Shimla may have been called the summer capital, but for all practical purposes this was the real Capital of India as the Government of India stayed there for the better part of the year moving down to Kolkata and later to New Delhi only during the Winter months. As the summer capital of the British Raj, Shimla came to be known as ‘the workshop of the Empire’.Ashok Kumar
Let Winter come! let polar spirits sweep The darkening world, and tempest-troubled deep! Though boundless snows the withered heath deform, And the dim sun scarce wanders through the storm, Yet shall the smile of social love repay, With mental light, the melancholy day! And, when its short and sullen noon is o'er, The ice-chained waters slumbering on the shore, How bright the fagots in his little hall Blaze on the hearth, and warm the pictured wall!thomas campbell

Finnish forests: Let us remind the satellite pictures of the 1970’s Winter in which the old forest appeared black and young forest and cut downs white. Already then the Finnish borders were like drawn on the map: White Finland between black Karelian and black Sweden. Finnish Forest Research Institute hicced up some time and then decided that the pictures are fake. . .pentti linkola
Late in the Winter of my seventeenth year, my mother decided I was depressed, presumably because I rarely left the house, spent quite a lot of time in bed, read the same book over and over, ate infrequently, and devoted quite a bit of my abundant free time to thinking about death.john green
Perhaps the wind Wails so in Winter for the summer's dead, And all sad sounds are nature's funeral cries For what has been and is not.george eliot
A Child will make two Dishes at an Entertainment for Friends; and when the Family dines alone, the fore or hind Quarter will makea reasonable Dish; and seasoned with a little Pepper or Salt, will be very good Boiled on the fourth Day, especially in Winter.jonathan swift

Twice a week the Winter through Here I stood to keep the goal: Football then was fighting sorrow For the young man's soul.
How can we furnish bread to the Armenians when we can't get enough for our own people? I know that they are suffering and that it is quite likely that they cannot get bread at all this coming Winter. But we have the utmost difficulty in getting flour and clothing right here in Constantinople.İsmail enver
It's the fate of the lion in Winter : all his billions, all his television channels cannot rescue him from the mockery that rains down on the aged lecher, his powers visibly waning.Silvio Berlusconi
The point they (Lissitzky, Rodchenko, Tatlin, Gabo , the neo-Plasticists, and so on) all had in common was to be inside and outside at the same time ... For me, to be inside and outside is to be in an unheated studio with broken windows in the Winter, or taking a nap on somebody’s porch in the summer.willem de kooning
Thou hast no sorrow in thy song, No Winter in thy year.
At first they set up forked stakes connected by twigs and covered these walls with mud. Others made walls of lumps of dried mud, covering them with reeds and leaves to keep out the rain and the heat. Finding that such roofs could not stand the rain during the storms of Winter, they built them with peaks daubed with mud, the roofs sloping and projecting so as to carry off the rain water.vitruvius
