Author Quotes to Ring in the New Year

Celebrate the New Year with these memorable quotes from authors.

 

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.”

Neil Gaiman

“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

 

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“A new heart for a New Year, always!”

? Charles Dickens

“The only way to spend New Year’s Eve is either quietly with friends or in a brothel.  Otherwise when the evening ends and people pair off, someone is bound to be left in tears.”

? W.H. Auden

“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. Unless a man starts on the strange assumption that he has never existed before, it is quite certain that he will never exist afterwards.”

? G.K. Chesterton

“Each age has deemed the new-born year
The fittest time for festal cheer.”

? Sir Walter Scott 

“Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering ‘it will be happier’…”

?Alfred Tennyson
