An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist
stays up to make sure the old year leaves.
Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every
new year find you a better man.
Every New Year is the direct descendant, isn't it, of a long line of
Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they
have no account.
I think in terms of the day's resolutions, not the year's.
Resolutions, like the good, die young.
-Fulton J. Sheen
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.
Time has no divisions to mark its passage; there is never a thunderstorm
to announce the beginning of a new year. It is only we mortals who ring
bells and fire off pistols.
Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve. Middle
age is when you're forced to.
