  • January brings the snow, / Makes our feet and fingers glow.

    • Sara Coleridge,
    • "The Months," Pretty Lessons in Verse for Good Children ()
  • I do not like January very much. It is too stationary. Not enough happens. I like the evidences of life, and in January there are too few of them.

  • January, month of empty pockets!

    • Colette,
    • "Empty Pockets" (1928), Journey for Myself ()
  • January is my favorite month, when the light is plainest, least colored. And I like the feeling of beginnings.

  • By January it had always been winter.

  • And what does January hold? Clean account books. Bare diaries. Three hundred and sixty-five new days, neatly parceled into weeks, months, seasons. A chunk of time, of life, waiting to be filled. One thing is certain. There will be more newness than ever before. All the world over men and women are facing changed values, an altered lay-out of life.

  • Begin this year as though you too / Were really not the same — / Like every January first, / Brand-new in your old name.

    • Marnie Pomeroy,
    • "January 1," in William Cole, ed., Poems for Seasons and Celebrations ()
  • January has only one thing to be said for it: it is followed by February. Nothing so well becomes it as its passing.

  • January is the month for dreaming.
