New Year Quotes

Hello, Friends.  Hope the festive season is keeping you healthy and happy. Here things have been extremely busy. I’ve hardly had time to post anything. But I promise to make up for all the lost time as soon as the new year begins … uh, is that a new year resolution? Well, sort of.

Talking of new year, here are some interesting quotes on the new year:

*  Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.  ~ Benjamin Franklin

*  New Year’s Day is every man’s birthday.  ~ Charles Lamb

*  Never tell your resolution beforehand, or it’s twice as onerous a duty.  ~ John Selden

*  Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.           ~  Alfred, Lord Tennyson

*  New Year’s Day:  Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions.  Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.  ~ Mark Twain

*  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 beginning.                   ~ T.S. Eliot

*  Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.  ~ Oscar Wilde

*  One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this:  To rise above the little things.  ~ John Burroughs

*  May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions.  ~ Joey Adams

*  A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I’ve played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.                                ~ Edgar Guest
