Last year I posted a Happy Christmas Eve! posting. I hope everyone had a very Happy Christmas again this year. This year I figured I would do a Happy New Year one.
Some from around the world, Australia, New Zealand, the Islands, and maybe even some from the Far East have already experienced the 2013 New Year, and we will also be experiencing it very soon. Here Midnight Eastern Standard Time (EST) about eight and a half hours from now….So Happy New Year 2013 to everyone!
And some words of wisdom from some great writers and thinkers:
He who breaks a resolution is a weakling;
He who makes one is a fool.
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
~Alfred, Lord Tennyson, 1850
Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink and swore his last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever. ~Mark Twain
Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account. ~Oscar Wilde
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
May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions. ~Joey Adams
