Five additional quotes
“When snow falls, nature listens. ” Antoinette van Kleef
“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”
“The hard soil and four months of snow make the inhabitants of the northern temperate zone wiser and abler than his fellow who enjoys the fixed smile of the tropics.”

My thoughts on these quotes
It’s winter time now, we’ve already got our first snow, and quotes on the topic of winter and snowflakes seemed appropriate for this week. So I’ve found some of the ones I like and am sharing them with you in this post.
Anton Chekhov quote is very true. When we are happy, no matter what are the external circumstances and factors. It doesn’t matter if it’s winter or summer, whether it’s day or night, whether the sun is shining or it’s raining.
I also really like the Vesta M. Kelly quote. A single snowflake is tiny and vulnerable, but when held together, they are very powerful. Together we are stronger and can achieve incomparably more than as individuals. As confirmed by Sara Raasch’s quote, even the strongest blizzard starts with one first snowflake.
Quotes from Aristotle and Kahlil Gibran, however, are timeless. Kindness makes everything more beautiful, and if you want something, you sometimes have to expose yourself to unpleasant circumstances.
These are my thoughts on the topic of winter and quotes for this week. I will be happy if you share your thoughts with me in the comments.
