The dropping temperatures

on Tuesday, 15 January 2019. Posted in Columns, Opinions

By: Philip Maenza

Having grown up in Pennsylvania, I was always accustomed to January being well below zero in regards to temperature. Growing up, January was a time of snowball fights and sled rides. Now that I live in South Carolina, those activities are no longer possible. However, I must say that the recent cold weather we have been having has been a nice change of pace. Here are some quotes about what other people had to say about the colder temperatures we are currently experiencing.

“In a very cold night, even houses want to have houses of their own to enter inside them and feel warm!” - Mehmet Murat ildan

“I like the cold weather. It means you get work done.” - Noam Chomsky

“Let me be the first to tell you, drinking alcohol is the worst thing to do in cold weather. Hot soup is the best because the process of digesting food helps to warm you up.” - Morgan Freeman

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” - John Steinbeck

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” - Edith Sitwell

“One thing about cold weather: it brings out the statistician in everyone.” - Paul Theroux

“Scarves, mittens, and hats are a great way to express your personality in the cold weather.” - Brad Goreski

“In cold weather a good rule is to light your fire first before doing anything else. It is always more sensible to keep yourself warm rather than trying to thaw yourself out later.” - Mors Kochanski

“The cold never bothered me anyway.” - Elsa from Disney’s Frozen

“Nothing burns like the cold.” - George R.R. Martin

“The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house. All that cold, cold, wet day.” - Dr. Seuss

“If you are cold at night, let the promise of love cover you like a warm blanket.” - Matthew White

“Love keeps the cold out better than a cloak.” - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“Cold! If the thermometer had been an inch longer we’d have frozen to death.” - Mark Twain

“I like these cold, gray winter days. Days like these let you savor a bad mood.” - Bill Watterson

“It is only when the cold season comes that we know the pine and cypress to be evergreens.” - Chinese Proverbs

“Shut the door not that it lets in the cold but that it lets out the coziness.” - Mark Twain
