“Winter is the king of showmen, turning tree stumps into snow men, and houses into birthday cakes, and spreading sugar over lakes. Smooth and clean and frosty white, the world looks good enough to bite. That’s the season to be young, catching snowflakes on your tongue. Snow is snowy when it’s snowing. I’m sorry it’s slushy when it’s going.” – Ogden Nash Celebrate winter and a Syracuse University tradition this week during Winter Carnival! http://studentactivities.syr.edu/traditions/winter-carnival.html

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
