  • Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.
    * Brooks Atkinson


  • Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.
    * Thomas Mann


  • Then sing, young hearts that are full of cheer,
    With never a thought of sorrow;
    The old goes out, but the glad young year
    Comes merrily in tomorrow.
    * Emily Miller


  • Each age has deemed the new-born year
    The fittest time for festal cheer.
    * Sir Walter Scott


  • 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.
    * Lord Tennyson
