7.- ‘I prefer winter and fall, when you feel the bone structure of the landscape. Something waits beneath it; the whole story doesn’t show.’ Andrew Wyeth.

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.

10.- And finally, my favorite: ‘Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.’ Pietro Aretino.
