Winter can be quite the unforgiving month. So in addition to hand warmers, scarves, and excessive layers, you might need some cold-weather quotes to make it through the winter months. In order to make this time of year even somewhat palatable, you need a fresh perspective on what the season means. You need to find a reason to enjoy the cold. Or, you need find the fun in being cynical about the feeling of a polar vortex.
There are all kinds of ways to make the winter bearable, starting with hibernation if you have that option. If you do, in fact, have to leave the house, you can take up a winter sport. That way there's an upside to a blizzard, like a great day on the slopes. Or perhaps you'd rather turn to winter words of wisdom — quotes about the season out of the mouths of greats. Everyone ruminates on the pain of freezing weather, even if it's just small talk in the elevator. "Wow, cold out there today, huh?" "Yeah, I can barely feel my nose!" Why not hear what some others have to say about the season?
Maybe you need some positive words about the beauty of a falling snowflake. Or maybe you need to hear someone else's witty complaint about the dropping temperatures. Either way, here are 15 cold-weather quotes out there that will help you survive the winter months
