Happy 2011!!

Hope the final days of 2010 are treating you well, and all the best to you and yours in 2011!

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

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

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

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

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

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

"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." - Ha! Twain is always good for the wicked ut spot on quote.
I haven't gotten around to reading it yet, but I'm hoping the first volume of Twain's autobiography that just came out is as snarky and fun as all of his sound bites.

The Kind of Sound Bites existed before sound bites did. . . .
