Happy New Year – QUOTES for the Day

For the New Year, my friends, I have 4 quotes.

Come, gentlemen, I hope we shall drink down all unkindness. William Shakespeare

The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.   Melody Beattie

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. Gilbert K. Chesterton

New Year’s Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time. James Agate

And, to all you out there in Noxland have a happy and blessed 2018.

    Noxland? NOXLAND?? Does this mean we’re all NOXIOUS? :>) In any case, a blessed, healthy and prosperous 2018 to one and all.
