Famous quotes containing the word winter:

    O Westmoreland, thou art a summer bird,
    Which ever in the haunch of winter sings
    The lifting up of day.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    People often become scholars for the same reason they become soldiers: simply because they are unfit for any other station. Their right hand has to earn them a livelihood; one might say they lie down like bears in winter and seek sustenance from their paws.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)

    The winter owl banked just in time to pass
    And save herself from breaking window glass.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
