As you prepare to say hello to a New Year, I thought you might find encouragement and inspiration from the folks below:
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.
Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.
Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.
Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, 'It will be happier.'
Alfred Lord Tennyson
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
Any new beginning is forged from the shards of the past, not from the abandonment of the past.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Each New Year, we have before us a brand new book containing 365 blank pages. Let us fill them with all the forgotten things from last year—the words we forgot to say, the love we forgot to show, and the charity we forgot to offer.
Peggy Toney Horton
May your 2015 be filled with joy, peace, love, and lots of good books!
