Short and Sweet: February Quote by Katherine Paterson

Short and Sweet post today because I'm on deadline.

This quotation is perfect for the February much of the country is having.

"I used to try to decide which was the worst month of the year. In the winter I would choose February. The reason God made February short a few days was because he knew that by the time people came to the end of it they would die if they had to stand one more blasted day." ―Katherine Paterson

About Katherine Paterson

Katherine Womeldorf Paterson is a Chinese-born American writer who has more than 30 books to her credit with 16 of them written for children.

Her book The Great Gilly Hopkins was one of my daughter's favorites. The movie of the same name, with the screenplay written by her son Steven Paterson, was truly delightful.

You may remember Ms. Paterson as the author of Bridge to Terabithia. From 1975 to 1980, she won 2 Newberry Medals and 2 National Book Awards for 4 different books.

Takeaway Truth

As I look out on this gray February day, I think Katherine Paterson was spot on with her description of this short month that already seems longer than one with 31 days.
