YOUTH IS WHEN YOU'RE ALLOWED TO STAY UP LATE ON NEW YEAR'S EVE. MIDDLE AGE IS WHEN YOU'RE FORCED TO.
~ Bill Vaughn
THE OBJECT OF A NEW YEAR IS NOT THAT WE SHOULD HAVE A NEW YEAR. IT IS THAT WE SHOULD HAVE A NEW SOUL AND A NEW NOSE; NEW FEET, A NEW BACKBONE, NEW EARS, AND NEW EYES. UNLESS A PARTICULAR MAN MADE NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS, HE WOULD MAKE NO RESOLUTIONS. UNLESS A MAN STARTS AFRESH ABOUT THINGS, HE WILL CERTAINLY DO NOTHING EFFECTIVE. UNLESS A MAN STARTS ON THE STRANGE ASSUMPTION THAT HE HAS NEVER EXISTED BEFORE, IT IS QUITE CERTAIN THAT HE WILL NEVER EXIST AFTERWARDS. UNLESS A MAN BE BORN AGAIN, HE SHALL BY NO MEANS ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN.

WHAT GREATER THING IS THERE FOR TWO HUMAN SOULS, THAN TO FEEL THAT THEY ARE JOINED FOR LIFE — TO STRENGTHEN EACH OTHER IN ALL LABOR, TO REST ON EACH OTHER IN ALL SORROW, TO MINISTER TO EACH OTHER IN ALL PAIN, TO BE ONE WITH EACH OTHER IN SILENT UNSPEAKABLE MEMORIES AT THE MOMENT OF THE LAST PARTING? ~ George Eliot
