Best New Year Quotes for New Year 2017A sort er walkin' meetin'-house, all sin-born fears are fled—
For, don't the righteous own the earth, an' ain't the devil dead?
But the day after New Year's Day, the devil moves his head,
An' I am all broke up to find the old scamp isn't dead;
An' later in the afternoon, he jest begins to blink,
An' has the cheek to lift his head, 'an cock his eye an' wink...
~Sam Walter Foss (1858–1911), "New Year Righteousness," Back Country Poems, 1892
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. ~Author unknown
Peace, peace to the Old Year! peace!
Let in mourning all murmuring cease,
All the jubilant hopes that he crushed,
All the voices of song he hath hushed;
Lose in love thy regret,
And remember the bright blades of bloom
That he gathered thee out of the gloom...
~Luella Clark (1832–1915), "The Old Year," in The Ladies' Repository, January 1858 [In Clark's 1904 April Days, the poem is titled "Going." —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]
Each New Year's Day is like starting a treasure hunt again from scratch, with a slightly altered map. ~Terri Guillemets, "X Moves," 2004
A Friend stands at the door;
In either tight-closed hand
Hiding rich gifts, three hundred and threescore:
Waiting to strew them daily o'er the land
Even as seed the sower.
~Dinah Maria Craik (1826–1887), "A Psalm for New Year's Eve," 1855 [The author preferred to be cited as "Dinah Maria Craik," but I would prefer to cite her as "Dinah Maria Muloch Craik." Modern reference sources show her name spelled Mulock, but from much of what I've seen in her own time it was written "Muloch" with an H rather than K, including a book of her poems published within her lifetime. Most of the original books are cited "by the author of" titles of her previous works, as was commonly done, especially for women. Well, fortunately I need not concern myself with the proper spelling since she preferred to leave off her maiden name. —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]
Good resolutions are useless attempts to interfere with scientific laws. Their origin is pure vanity. Their result is absolutely nil. They give us, now and then, some of those luxurious sterile emotions that have a certain charm for the weak. That is all that can be said for them.

They are simply cheques that men draw on a bank where they have no account. ~Oscar Wilde (1854–1900), The Picture of Dorian Gray, 1890
Last night the Old Year passed away, all
Scarred with guilt and sin;
This morn the New Year, pure and white,
Time's angel ushered in.
The starry midnight gates were flung
Upon their hinges wide,
The angels dipped their silv'ry oars in
Time's incoming tide.
~Eliza A. Wetherby Otis (1833–1904), "The New Year (1885)," in California "Where Sets the Sun", 1905 [Being The Writings of Eliza A. Otis (Mrs. Harrison Gray Otis, long with the staff of the Los Angeles Times) 1876–1904, In Poetry and Prose, assembled, arranged and edited by her husband. —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results means you're either insane or are making a New Year's resolution. ~@thedeadauthor, 2015
Heap on more wood!—the wind is chill;
But let it whistle as it will,
We'll keep our Christmas merry still.
Each age has deemed the new-born year
The fittest time for festal cheer...
~Walter Scott (1771–1832), Marmion; a Tale of Flodden Field, 1808
For hark! the last chime of the dial has ceased,
And Old Time, who his leisure to cozen,
Has finish'd the Months, like the flasks at a feast,
Is preparing to tap a fresh dozen!
~Thomas Hood (1799–1845), "Anacreontic for the New Year," The New Monthly Magazine, January 1842
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth.
~Martin Luther (1483–1546), Christmas carol for his little son Hans, 1535
A New-Year's day—'tis but a term of art,
An arbitrary line upon the chart
Of Time's unbounded sea—fond fancy's creature,
To reason alien, and unknown to nature.
Nay—'tis a joyful day, a day of hope!...
And we, whom many New-Year's days have told
The sober truth, that we are growing old—
For this one night—aye—and for many more,
Will be as jocund as we were of yore,
Kind hearts can make December blithe as May,
And in each morrow find a New-Year's day.
~Hartley Coleridge (1796–1849), "New-Year's Day," Poems, 1833
The old year is gone, the new year begun, and those of us who set store by the calendar draw a line to sum up a total, since it is man's habit to count the minutes and the days and try to map time.
Happy New Year Quotes 2017 whatsup/facebookNature, of course, has her own map of time, and although man's calculations may approximate it, they miss the mark repeatedly. If we insist on starting the year in mid-Winter, the solstice would be the logical moment, and the solstice occurred nine days ago. The ancients, being practical people, started their year with the vernal equinox, the beginning of Spring.
But, being insistently illogical, we follow long habit and ingrained tradition and give this day unwonted significance. We draw a mythical total line, hoping somehow to stop time long enough to sum up. But even before we have totted the first column, time has gone beyond us. Time doesn't wait for totals. Only the tax collector can command time, and even he can't check the sun in its course. The sun already leans toward Spring and another Summer. ~Hal Borland (1900–1978), "Another Year," January 1961
To our savage as well as our animal ancestors, spring was a time of awakening from the winter's torpor, a time of throbbing pulse, of eager running hither and thither, of combat and mating and rioting. It was the real New Year, and should be ours instead of that pale, frost-bitten shadow of a shade which the almanacs have deluded us into anæmically celebrating in midwinter. ~Woods Hutchinson, A.M., M.D. (1862–1930), Civilization and Health, "Chapter XVI: Spring Fever and Spring Cleaning," 1914
Whether we want them or not, the New Year will bring new challenges; whether we seize them or not, the New Year will bring new opportunities. ~Michael Josephson (b.1942),
Farewell, old year; we walk no more together;
I catch the sweetness of thy latest sigh...
Good-bye, kind year, we walk no more together
But here in quiet happiness we part;
And from thy wreath of faded fern and heather
I take some sprays, and wear them on my heart.
~Sarah Doudney (1841–1926), "Farewell to the Old Year," in The Sunday Magazine, 1881
The last fire of many that have blazed on my hearth these twelve months gone is fast sinking into ashes. I do not care to revive its expiring flame, because I find its slow fading into darkness harmonious with the hour and the thought which comes with it as the shadow follows the cloud. While it is true that our division of time into years is purely conventional, and finds no recognition or record on the great dial face of the heavens, no man can be quite oblivious of it.
