Quotes of the Day for 16 February 2001 – Snow

A week ago I used weather as the theme, because of how boring the weather had been this winter. I spoke too soon, as I write this it's been coming down for five hours. In the morning it will look like a Christmas card, except along the highway where the ditches will be full of errant automobiles. I'll stay home and work, here are some quotes on Snow.

     - Jeanette Winterson

The memories of long love gather like drifting snow, poignant as the mandarin ducks who float side by side in sleep.
     - Lady Murasaki

I used to be Snow White - but I drifted.
