“An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.” ~ Bill Vaughan
“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 12 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
“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. ” ~ Oprah Winfrey
And my favorite:
“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”
Here’s to many happy beginnings, all. See you next year.
