- How many politicians does it take to change a light bulb? 10000001. One to change the light bulb and 10000000 to rebuild civilization to the point where they need light bulbs again.

Ugh! I’m checking the weather way too much this summer!
- Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.
- After three days men grow weary, of a wench, a guest, and weather rainy.
- Don’t knock the weather. If it didn’t change once in a while, nine out of ten people couldn’t start a conversation.
- If you want to see the sunshine, you have to weather the storm.
- A change in the weather is sufficient to recreate the world and ourselves.
- What can it be about low temperatures that sharpens the edges of objects?
- It’s so dry the trees are bribing the dogs.
- What dreadful hot weather we have! It keeps me in a continual state of inelegance.
- You can have money piled to the ceiling but the size of your funeral is still going to depend on the weather.
- April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain.
- Weather is a great metaphor for life–sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad, and there’s nothing much you can do about it but carry an umbrella.
- Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.
- You can’t get mad at weather because weather’s not about you. Apply that lesson to most other aspects of life.
- Conversation about the weather is the last refuge of the unimaginative.
- Change of weather is the discourse of fools.
