joy of life and may your resolutions for the days ahead stay firm,
turning all your dreams into reality and all your efforts into great
Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for
it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.
Of all sound of all bells... most solemn and touching is the peal which
rings out the Old Year.
A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year.
We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up
a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to
balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives...
not looking for flaws, but for potential.
The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is
that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new
backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New
Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts
afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.
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.
