---- John Steinbeck
“Winter is not a season, it's an occupation.”
“Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence.”
----Antoine de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince
“Winter changes into stone the water of heaven and the heart of man.”
Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius.
