New Years Eve!!!

Here we are the last day of the year....2011.   Many things have happened this past year. Some were positive, some negative. Some we have done, others have been done to us but most, if not all, have affected our lives in one way or another.  Here is to new beginnings, new chances, new opportunities and the New Year. May 2012 be happy, healthy and prosperous and through hard work, commitment, patience and understanding may it bring you all you desire. 

 I have gathered up some quotes about the New Year, I hope you enjoy.


"An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves." ~ Bill Vaughn

"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 Years Day/" ~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce

"Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right" ~ Oprah Winfrey 

 "New Year's Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time" ~ James Agate

"People are so worried about they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas"

"A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other" 

 "Here's to the bright New Year, and a fond farewell to the old; here's to the things that are yet to come, and to the memories that we hold".

"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man." ~ Benjamin Franklin

"Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve. Middle age is when you're forced to". ~ Bill Vaughan

"What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year."
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox

"Let our New Year's resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word" ~ Goran Persson
