Don't knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn't start a conversation if it didn't change once in a while. ~Kin Hubbard

Whether the weather be cold, or whether the weather be hot;
Whether the weather be fine, or whether the weather be not,
We'll weather the weather whatever the weather,
Whether we like it or not.
~Cardiff Camera Club, c.1921

Whenever people talk to me about the weather, I always feel quite certain that they mean something else. ~Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest: A Trivial Comedy for Serious People, 1898

Cussing the weather is mighty poor farming. ~African-American proverb

I like storms. It's Earth's way of venting. ~The Resident, "00:42:30" [S2, E1, 2018, Dr. Austin], written by Harthan, Klaviter, Notarile, Deiker Restivo, & Lu

It was a dark and stormy night, the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept up the streets... rattling along the house-tops, and fiercely agitating the scanty flame of the lamps that struggled against the darkness. ~Edward George Earle Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton, Paul Clifford, 1830  [You really couldn't expect a page of weather quotations without this classic, could you? —tg]

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 or choose to dance in the rain! ~Terri Guillemets, "Homeward bound in the crashing of the rain," 1991  [ღS&G —tg]

I tried to catch some fog. I mist. ~Internet meme

What's the difference between weather and climate? You can't weather a tree but you can climate. ~Author unknown

Climate is what on average we may expect, weather is what we actually get. ~A. J. Herbertson, Ph.D., c. 1901

Climate... is what a locality has when you are buying a home there, and weather is what it has afterwards. ~"The Difference," Puck, 1904

Modern-day Denmark is a tourism wonderland, boasting a year-round average temperature of 14 degrees Centipede (108 degrees Richter). ~Dave Barry, Dave Barry's Only Travel Guide You'll Ever Need, 1991

Any proverbs about weather are doubly true during a storm. ~Terri Guillemets, "The truth of weather," 2006

All weather is sin-related. Lust causes thunder, anger causes fog, and you don't want to know what causes dew. ~Stephen Colbert, I am America (And So Can You!), 2007

Empirical analysis reveals that happiness is negatively related to temperature in a linear model, and is maximized at 13.9 degrees Celsius in a quadratic model. ~Yoshiro Tsutsui, "Weather and Individual Happiness," 2012, Osaka University, Japan  [Paraphrase: The temperature of happiness is 57 °F. –tg]

It was one of those somber evenings when the sighing of the wind resembles the moans of a dying man; a storm was brewing, and between the splashes of rain on the windows there was the silence of death. All nature suffers in such moments; the trees writhe in pain and twist their heads; the birds of the fields cower under the bushes; the streets of cities are deserted. ~Alfred de Musset, The Confession of a Child of the Century (La Confession d'un enfant du siècle), 1836, translated from French by Kendall Warren

The weather behaved itself. In the spring, the little flowers came out obediently in the meads, and the dew sparkled, and the birds sang. In the summer it was beautifully hot for no less than four months, and, if it did rain just enough for agricultural purposes, they managed to arrange it so that it rained while you were in bed. In the autumn the leaves flamed and rattled before the west winds, tempering their sad adieu with glory. And in the winter, which was confined by statute to two months, the snow lay evenly, three feet thick, but never turned into slush. ~T.H. White, The Once and Future King, 1958

...I will praise the English climate till I die — even if I die of the English climate. There is no weather so good as English weather. Nay, in a real sense there is no weather at all anywhere but in England. In France you have much sun and some rain; in Italy you have hot winds and cold winds; in Scotland and Ireland you have rain, either thick or thin; in America you have hells of heat and cold, and in the Tropics you have sunstrokes varied by thunderbolts. But all these you have on a broad and brutal scale, and you settle down into contentment or despair. ~G.K. Chesterton, Alarms and Discursions, "The Glory of Grey"

My favorite weather is bird-chirping weather. ~Terri Guillemets, "April morning on the patio," 1988

Life is like Chicago weather — you never know what you're gonna get. ~Internet meme à la Forrest Gump
