As this year we had or have snow for the first time since 7 or 8 years in Belgium, here are

13 quotes about snow

1. Sex is like snow, you never know how many inches you're going to get or how long it will last !

2. Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.

3. Snow and adolescence are the only problems that disapear if you ignore them

4. When it snows, you have two choices : shovel or make snowmen

5. Kindness is like snow - it beautifies everything it covers

6. Advice is like snow; the softer it falls, the longer it dwells upon, and the deeper it sinks into the mind

7. To live anywhere in the world today and be against equality because of race or color, is like living in Alaska and being against snow !

8. The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball.

9. Don't complain about the snow on your neighbor's roof when your own doorstep is unclean

10. Genius is an African who dreams up snow

11. Money is only congealed snow

12. Before you love, learn to run through the snow leaving no footprint

13. Courtesies cannot be borrowed like snow shovels, you must have some of your own.

I started doing my T13 last week, and then my kids disturbed me before I could finished and I never did get to finished. Life with 5 kids huh?

Great quotes! I wish I lived in a place that has snow!

Rasmenia said...

These are wonderful quotes & I had never heard any of these before - so nice to read something new!

Oh, & I see you are in Belgium - we're neighbors...I'm just a short bit away from you in France, just outside of Paris. We had some snow yesterday for about 10 minutes. ;)

Happy TT to you!

I just read last night in my Amsterdam/Belgium book about Waterloo. I never realized that it was a suburb of Brussels! We're thinking of a day trip to Brussels from Amsterdam. Maybe we could meet up for waffles and chocolate!

I love your first quote I was trying not to make dirty jokes when I posted the other day: "they said it was eight inches but we only got four"...

Here's my answer to your last at mine:

Being a native German speaker don't you find Dutch-Flemish really easy to understand?... I wanted to move to Amsterdam quite seriously about 18 yrs ago and took up learning Dutch I RACED through the course on the back of all the German I'd done in 5 yrs at school it was so easy. Once you realized the guttural kkkhhhh sound is just a G and the N on -en endings isn't pronounced you can leap ahead... and all those expressions verzekkering/Versicherung etc etc surely I would have thought Dutch would come to you more easily than English which is full of French, Latin and Greek...?~no??

Gledwood said...

Zal ik iets op Nederlands sagen? U praat met meneer Gledwood ~ ik ben al 36 jaar oud maar ik ben jong van herz.

Makke ik zinvoll?

Dat is wat ik remember van mijne nederlandskursus von alle deze jaaren

nej hoor! wat kan ik voor U doen!!! London is well lekker...

OK tot later, Gattina

LOVE #7! Never heard some of these before... and I'm not sure I get #11... snow jelly? Slips through your fingers? Maybe?

Heather said...

Seven years without snow? I can't even imagien it, especially after the last two winters we've had with record snowfalls. Great quotes!

Cute list, and certainly appropriate at this time.

Happy TT!

But, but, but, my front steps are unclean from the snow blowing off the neighbor's roof! No way to win *hanging head*

Tossing Pebbles in the Stream said...

Well, we have 36 inches here. It won't go down until next month.

I am glad you are having a touch of real Winter. Have you laid on the ground and made a snow angel yet?

Tink said...

We didn't have any snow over here... :( I liked the quotes though! :)
Thanks for visiting my TT.

Dr.John said...

Interesting but snow and I are not friends.

Nicholas said...

Great lost, though I am not sure I understand #11.

Puss-in-Boots said...

That's interesting. Maybe I should do 13 on rain, cyclones and floods...lol.

Lifecruiser said...

No snow for that long? Sounds like heaven to me, even though we have had quite sparsely with snow the past years.

Great quotes, never have seen any quotes about snow earlier, I really don't know how you find everything :-)
