Quotes for the New Year

Many people look forward to the new year for a new start on old habits. ~Author Unknown

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. ~Charles Lamb

New Year's Day is every man's birthday. ~Charles Lamb

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

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

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"

I don't think I've ever read anything by Charles Lamb (although I shall have to remedy that), BUT, I just read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and they mention him a couple of times. I've added him to the list. Thanks for sharing the great quotes!
