Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
Albert Einstein

Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

I think in terms of the day’s resolutions, not the year’s.

Henry Moore

Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw
on a bank where they have no account.
Oscar Wilde

For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
and next year’s words await another voice.
T.S. Eliot

I made no resolutions for the New Year. The habit of making plans,
of criticizing, sanctioning and molding my life, is too much of a daily event for me.
Anaïs Nin

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

One resolution I have made, and try always to keep,
is this — To rise above the little things.
John Burroughs

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

What the new year brings to you will depend a great deal
on what you bring to the new year.
Vern McLellan

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

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

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 person made New Year resolutions, he or she would make no resolutions. Unless one starts afresh about things, that person will certainly do nothing effective.
G.K. Chesterton

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

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.
Ellen Goodman

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 Tennyson
