The title phrase "a man for all seasons" comes from a passage by British author Robert Whittington (c. 1480–c. 1553) describing English statesman and writer Sir Thomas More, the subject of the play. Whittington says More could enjoy "marvelous mirth" and appreciate "sad gravity." More appreciated many emotional circumstances or "seasons" of life.
