Another year behind us and a new one starting.
As for me, I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions. But, I do look forward to each new year full of hope and optimism that I will live my life better than the year before. In all honesty, I must admit that I am never nearly quite as successful at this endeavor as I want to be. But, who knows? The new year is fast approaching and I have yet another opportunity to get it right.
Here are my five favorite New Year’s quotes:
Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right. – Oprah Winfrey
New Year’s Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual. – Mark Twain
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
One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things. – John Burroughs
And, my absolute favorite:
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. – Benjamin Franklin
I’ve been seeing a lot of articles in the past several days about New Year’s Resolutions. Even the US government on its site USA.gov lists the top resolutions with links to sites to help you achieve your goals! Are you making any New Year’s Resolutions for 2012?
