Dear readers, I want to wish you a blessed and prosperous new year! To do thus, I tried to think of something wise and witty to say, but alas, I am not that wise or witty. So, I pulled some new year quotes from others far wiser and wittier than I. I hope they inspire! “Each New Year, we have before us a brand new book containing 365 blank pages. Let us fill them with all the forgotten things from last year – the words we forgot to say, the love we forgot to show, and the charity we forgot to offer.” ― Peggy Toney Horton “Each age has deemed the new-born year The fittest time for festal cheer.” ― Walter Scott “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 “Faith is why I’m here today and faith is why I made it through.” ― Jonathan Anthony Burkett, Neglected But Undefeated: The Life Of A Boy Who Never Knew A Mother’s Love “Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book.
Write a good one.” ― Brad Paisley “Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” ― Oprah Winfrey “Hope Smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering ‘it will be happier’...” ― Alfred Tennyson “For last year’s words belong to last year’s language And next year’s words await another voice.” ― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets “New Year’s most glorious light is sweet hope!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan “As we did every New Year’s Eve we made ridiculous resolutions that no one would keep, and quietly we all wondered what the coming year would hold, each of us praying for our own private miracles. Good health. Better health. A marriage for this child, a good job for another. This hopefulness was something hardwired into our psyches, that a new year might mean some monumental something wonderful could happen to bring us happiness at a level we had never known. A new year was a chance to start over. Maybe even, just maybe, there would be peace on earth for one entire day.” ― Dorothea Benton Frank, “The Last Original Wife”
