“May all your troubles last as long as your New Year’s resolutions.’ – Joey Adams
“Another fresh new year is here . . . . Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear, To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs, To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
by William Arthur Ward

And been bow’d to the earth by its fury;

The regrets of remembrance to cozen,
And having obtained a New Trial of Time,
Shout in hopes of a kindlier dozen.”
