The Winter solstice is a celebration in which all people of the earth are invited to take part. For thousands upon thousands of years before our modern holidays came about, all inhabitants of earth celebrated the Winter solstice. This joyful occasion takes place twice a year one in the Northern Hemisphere and one in the South Hemisphere. This day has the shortest hours of daylight and the longest night of the year. I hope you enjoy these Winter Solstice Quotes!
Winter Solstice Quotes
“Is there a moment quite as keen or memory so bright
As light and fire and music so sweet
To warm the winter’s night?”
— Adam Christianson
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields,
that it disses them so gently?
And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt;
and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
— Lewis Carroll
Don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter.
It’s quiet but the roots are down there riotous.
The gift of light we thankfully take
But not shall it be alone for our sake
The more we give light
The one to the other
It shines and it spreads and it glows still further
Until every spark by friends set aflame
Until every heart with joy to proclaim
In the depths of our souls a shining sun glows.
