1.- Albert Campus said: In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
2.- And Tom Allen believed tha ‘winter forms our character and brings out our best.’

9.- “The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, a time of pain and withdrawal that produces something joyfully inconceivable, like a monarch butterfly masterfully extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon, bursting forth into unexpected glory.” Gary Zukav.
