Snow Quotations

Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
John Ruskin

I used to be Snow White, but I drifted.
Mae West

Samuel Taylor Coleridge Quote
Advice is like snow - the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper in sinks into the mind.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge

As soon go kindle fire with snow, as seek to quench the fire of love with words.
