An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.
Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.
Hamilton Wright Mabie
New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights.
Edward Payson Powell
The Old Year has gone. Let the dead past bury its own dead. The New Year has taken possession of the clock of time. All hail the duties and possibilities of the coming twelve months!
