Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.

Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient short comings considerably shorter than ever. We shall also reflect pleasantly upon how we did the same old thing last year about this time. However, go in, community. 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, and we wish you to enjoy it with a looseness suited to the greatness of the occasion. ~ Mark Twain

Comes now a smiling New-Born Year
To fill to-day with goodly cheer—

By Daddy Time, of clothes bereft

A Son of Darkness or of Light
No man can tell, God bless him!
But be he base or glorious
Time puts it wholly up to us
To dress him! ~ John Kendrick Bangs(1862-1922), “The New-Born Year” (January First), The Cheery Way: A Bit of Verse For Every Day, 1920

New Year’s Quotes

New Year’s Eve,New Year’s Day,New Year’s resolutions

But then I do think New Year’s resolutions can’t technically be expected to begin on New Year’s Day, don’t you? Since, because it’s an extension of New Year’s Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system. Also dieting on New Year’s Day isn’t a good idea as you can’t eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second. ~ Helen Fielding“Sunday 1 January,” Bridget Jones’s Diary, 1996

The regrets of remembrance to cozen,
And having obtained a New Trial of Time,
Shout in hopes of a kindlier dozen. ~ Thomas Hood


New Year's Quotes , And now from yonder hill the sun's bright beams

And now from yonder hill the sun’s bright beams
Shine through the mist, and flood the world with light;
The path winds on, leaving our broken dreams
Of tangled briar and brake far out of sight.

The path before us shines in the sun’s ray.
We follow on, into the coming year,
And in hope’s sunshine greet each op’ning day. ~ Lilian Pearce

And made of it a happy year. ~ Edgar Guest
