As another year comes to an end, I’ve been searching the web for famous quotes to help bring in the new year. All of these quotes are so true. I wish you all a new year filled with love, laughter, good health, and prosperity. See you in 2012!
An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.
Many people look forward to the new year for a new start on old habits.
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
One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things.
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, Bridget Jones’s Diary
