    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.

    Some funny new years quotes

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


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


    Many people look forward to the new year for a new start on old habits. ~Author Unknown


    A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other. ~Author Unknown


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


    No one ever regarded the First of January with indifference. It is that from which all date their time, and count upon what is left. It is the nativity of our common Adam. ~Charles Lamb


    New Year's Day is every man's birthday. ~Charles Lamb


    The merry year is born
    Like the bright berry from the naked thorn.
    ~Hartley Coleridge


    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


    Never tell your resolution beforehand, or it's twice as onerous a duty. ~John Selden


    New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights. ~Hamilton Wright Mabie


    The Old Year has gone. Let the dead past bury its own dead. The New Year has taken possession of the clock of time. All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months! ~Edward Payson Powell


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


    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


    The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year's Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you're married to. ~P.J. O'Rourke


    Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past. ~Henry Ward Beecher


    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 new year begins in a snow-storm of white vows. ~George William Curtis







    For last year's words belong to last year's language
    And next year's words await another voice.
    And to make an end is to make a beginning.
    ~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"


    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


    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


    People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas. ~Author Unknown


    And ye, who have met with Adversity's blast,
    And been bow'd to the earth by its fury;
    To whom the Twelve Months, that have recently pass'd
    Were as harsh as a prejudiced jury -
    Still, fill to the Future! and join in our chime,
    The regrets of remembrance to cozen,
    And having obtained a New Trial of Time,
    Shout in hopes of a kindlier dozen.
    ~Thomas Hood


    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. ~Brooks Atkinson


    Each age has deemed the new-born year
    The fittest time for festal cheer.
    ~Walter Scott


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


    Glory to God in highest heaven,
    Who unto man His Son hath given;
    While angels sing with tender mirth,
    A glad new year to all the earth.
    ~Martin Luther


    A new oath holds pretty well; but... when it is become old, and frayed out, and damaged by a dozen annual retryings of its remains, it ceases to be serviceable; any little strain will snap it. ~Mark Twain, speech in New York City, 31 March 1885


    But can one still make resolutions when one is over forty? I live according to twenty-year-old habits. ~Andre Gide


    I do think New Year's resolutions can't technically be expected to begin on New Year's Day, don't you? Since, because it's an extension of New Year's Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system. Also dieting on New Year's Day isn't a good idea as you can't eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second. ~Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones's Diary


    New Year's Eve, where auld acquaintance be forgot. Unless, of course, those tests come back positive. ~Jay Leno


    We meet today
    To thank Thee for the era done,
    And Thee for the opening one.
    ~John Greenleaf Whittier


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


    Of all sound of all bells... most solemn and touching is the peal which rings out the Old Year. ~Charles Lamb


    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.
    ~Edgar Guest


    It wouldn't be New Year's if I didn't have regrets. ~William Thomas


    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


    May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions. ~Joey Adams


    He who breaks a resolution is a weakling;
    He who makes one is a fool.
    ~F.M. Knowles


    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. ~G.K. Chesterton


    I think in terms of the day's resolutions, not the year's. ~Henry Moore


    Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols. ~Thomas Mann


    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


    New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions. ~Mark Twain


    Every man regards his own life as the New Year's Eve of time. ~Jean Paul Richter


    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

    I ended up having a pretty good new years. Went out with a friend and then met up with a few other people in the city. Drank at one of my old spots :) Today I think we're having a BBQ.

    Hey thanks all (and thanks Jaleena, those classes were terrible, I'm questioning severely whether I want to do anything with this masters...). My neighbors (I watched their cats for the last 2 weeks) brought me alcohol as repayment with jello shots and more to come later. So I'm being terrible and drinking it. Makes being on my own a little more fun . . .for now :lol: However, my tolerance has gone down the shitter.....I have none anymore. and damn how I've missed my best friend alcohol. I should have saved this for the national championship game next week, however.

    Don't read this Erik; if you do, you're seeing things.

    That's me tonight!! Not so much with the drinking, as I'm driving, unless I can find a place to crash close to the club. Private party with 300 of my closest friends, I can't think of a better way to end off a crummy year.
