Reprinted from Bookish.com 

Winter is endlessly inspiring to writers and artists, whether they’re moved by the chill in the air, the cozy holidays, or the beauty of snow. Here, we’ve collected some of the best lines from literature about winter.

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” ―Lewis Carroll

“My old grandmother always used to say, Summer friends will melt away like summer snows, but winter friends are friends forever.” ―George R.R. Martin

“Snow flurries began to fall and they swirled around people’s legs like house cats. It was magical, this snow globe world.” ―Sarah Addison Allen

“Surely everyone is aware of the divine pleasures which attend a wintry fireside: candles at four o’clock, warm hearthrugs, tea, a fair tea-maker, shutters closed, curtains flowing in ample draperies to the floor, whilst the wind and rain are raging audibly without.” ―Thomas de Quincey

“Snow was falling, so much like stars filling the dark trees that one could easily imagine its reason for being was nothing more than prettiness.” ―Mary Oliver

“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.” ―Edith Sitwell

“Snow falling soundlessly in the middle of the night will always fill my heart with sweet clarity.” ―Novala Takemoto

“Well, I know now. I know a little more how much a simple thing like a snowfall can mean to a person.” ―Sylvia Plath

“I leaned out one last time and caught a snowflake on my tongue. They tasted so good, so pure and so divine, like nothing I had ever tasted from the sky. It was as if happiness spread through your body with the cold, but then disappeared and brought depression, all in less then two seconds. It was unbelievable, and yet, addicting.” ―Shannon A. Thompson
