The new year begins in a snow-storm of white vows.  George William Curtis

Year’s end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.  Hal Borland

The Old Year has gone. Let the dead past bury its own dead. The New Year has taken possession of the clock of time. All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months!  Edward Payson Powell

The merry year is born like the bright berry from the naked thorn.  Hartley Coleridge

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

Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right.  Oprah Winfrey

Explore. Dream. Discover.  Mark Twain

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. Chesternut

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.  Benjamin Franklin

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

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws, but for potential.  Ellen Goodman

You can’t have a better tomorrow if you are thinking about yesterday all the time.  Charles F. Kettering

Time past and time present, both, may pain us, but time improved eloquent in God’s praise.  Mary Baker Eddy
