New Years Quotes
Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.
Each age has deemed the new-born year
The fittest time for festal cheer.
-Sir Walter Scott
Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve. Middle age is when you're forced to.
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.

A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other.
No one ever regarded the First of January with indifference. It is that from which all date their time, and count upon what is left. It is the nativity of our common Adam.
New Year's Day is every man's birthday.
The merry year is born
Like the bright berry from the naked thorn.
New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights.
-Hamilton Wright Mabie
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
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 new year begins in a snow-storm of white vows.
-George William Curtis
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
The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year's Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you're married to.
We meet today
To thank Thee for the era done,
And Thee for the opening one.
-John Greenleaf Whittier
