Famous quotes containing the words switzerland and/or winter:

    I look upon Switzerland as an inferior sort of Scotland.
    Sydney Smith (1771–1845)

    The winter is made and you have to bear it,
    The winter web, the winter woven, wind and wind,
    For all the thoughts of summer that go with it
    In the mind, pupa of straw, moppet of rags....
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
