“The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.”

– G.K. Chesterton

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”

– T.S. Eliot

“Each age has deemed the new-born year
The fittest time for festal cheer.”

– Sir Walter Scott

“Hope

Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,

Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”

– Alfred Tennyson

“Another fresh new year is here . . .

Another year to live!

To banish worry, doubt, and fear,

To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me

To live each day with zest . . .

To daily grow and try to be

My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity

Once more to right some wrongs,

To pray for peace, to plant a tree,

And sing more joyful songs!”

– William Arthur Ward

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

– Mark Twain

“Glory to God in highest heaven, Who unto man His Son hath given; While angels sing with tender mirth, A glad new year to all the earth.”

– Martin Luther

“Be always at War with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you, a better person.”

– Benjamin Franklin
