Happy New Year 2007!
New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.
~ Mark Twain
I made no resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans, of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me.
~ Anais Nin
One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things.
~ John Burroughs
Of all sound of all bells... most solemn and touching is the peal which rings out the Old Year.
~ Charles Lamb
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
It wouldn't be New Year's if I didn't have regrets.
~ William Thomas
The only way to spend New Year's Eve is either quietly with friends or in a brothel. Otherwise when the evening ends and people pair off, someone is bound to be left in tears.
~ W.H. Auden
New Year's Eve, where auld acquaintance be forgot. Unless, of course, those tests come back positive.
~ Jay Leno
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.
~ Benjamin Franklin
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.
~ Thomas Mann
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
