(Photo Essay) The Beauty of Winter
“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.”
“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
“Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.”
“There are adventures of the spirit and one can travel in books and interest oneself in people and affairs.
One need never be dull as long as one has friends to help, gardens to enjoy and books in the long winter evenings.”
