New Year

Inspirational quotes to inspire you in the new year.

~Edward Payson Powell

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"

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

~John Burroughs

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
