A new year ahead

Posted by Claudia Moser on 2:24 PM in

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

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

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

I wish you all health since without it nothing really makes sense. I wish you all that 2012 will bring some dreams come true and leave some for the years ahead. I wish you all that the moments of happiness overcome those of sadness.

As for me, no resolution list, just the wish that things will be better and happiness, tranquility, joy and balance will be present in my life on a daily basis.

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

Happy New Year!



Great post!!! I love that last quote!!! One day at a time is fine for me.

@Cindy - so true, happy new year!

Awesome quotes! You said it right about the good health. Good health is everything and more than anything else. I guess that is why most resolutions include a diet for weight loss.

Great post!

And yes, I like your idea of just wanting to do things a little bit better.

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
