Quotations for the New Year


Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.
~ Oprah Winfrey


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 a beginning.
~ T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"


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


Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.
~ Brooks Atkinson


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


It wouldn't be New Year's if I didn't have regrets.
~ William Thomas


The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.
~ G.K. Chesterton


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


For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice.
~ T.S. Eliot


Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past.
~ Henry Ward Beecher


The object of a new year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul
~ G. K. Chesterton


Serious trouble comes when the New Year's resolutions collide with the old year's habits.

Thanks again Missbibbledoo....

I started the "Quotes for Quitters" thread as I have always loved quotes for their ability in a few words to convey a memorable message. To me quotes are like portable wisdom. Over the years I have acquired a collection that has always been useful.

Congratulations on your remarkable ongoing recovery. It is amazing to see not only the new you but how you immediately started helping others by sharing your wisdom!

If I had a vote for rookie of the year, it would be you :D
