here's a little new years' inspiration. in case you need it.


some words of wisdom:

"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

"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

"one resolution i have made, and try always to keep, is this: to rise above the little things." john burroughs

"be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man." benjamin franklin

"no one ever regarded the First of January with indifference. it is that from which all date their time, and count upon what is left." charles lamb

"cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right." oprah winfrey

Since you did not put any suggested listening on this post, I'll add one for you: brand new day by Joshua radin, except change it to brand new year! I heart that song :) and I like that that video and all the quotes too!
P.s.- word verification: pregrag.... gross!
