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.
Melody Beattie

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.
Helen Keller

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

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!

I saw something on Facebook last week that may have been a paraphrase from one or more of those quotes. It said something like, "Today is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one."

Happy New Year.
