14 Quotes To Cozy Up With

There's nothing quite like the feeling of the security and comfort of home, and of all the seasons, winter seems particularly suited for cozy moments. A warm fire, a fluffy blanket, the soft glow of candles, the company of friends and family — it all adds up to a cozy time.

Some call it “nesting” or “cocooning”; the Danish call it “hygge” (pronounced “hoo-gah”), a word that roughly translates as “coziness.” It’s the desire to create a warm and welcoming environment to enjoy with the people you love — the feeling of well-being you get from being in comfortable and peaceful surroundings.

These quotes about the joys of being cozy remind us that the hustle and bustle of everyday life may keep the world running, but home is where the heart is — and it’s often the best place to be.

But winter is the time for comfort and for friendship / For warmth and food
Dame Edith Sitwell

She did not need much, / wanted very little. / A kind word, sincerity, fresh air, clean water, a garden, kisses, / books to read, / sheltering arms, a cosy bed, / and to love and be loved in return.
