The object of a new year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul.
- G.K. Chesterton
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better man.
- Benjamin Franklin
In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, never in want.
- Irish toast
Glory to God in highest heaven,
Who unto man His Son hath given;
While angels sing with tender mirth,
A glad new year to all the earth
- Martin Luther
