4.36 “In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
4.37 “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses 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.”
