"Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right."
"A new year is unfolding – like a blossom with petals curled tightly concealing the beauty within."
"People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas."
"New Year's Day is every man's birthday."
"We meet today
To thank Thee for the era done,
And Thee for the opening one."
~John Greenleaf Whittier
"Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties."
"Celebrate what you want to see more of."
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man."
"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."
~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
"In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, but never in want."
"Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols."
