Here's what some famous people had to say about New Year's:

MARK TWAIN:
"New Year's Day: now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual . . . New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls, and humbug resolutions."

JAY LENO:
"Now there are more overweight people in America than average-weight people. So overweight people are now average… which means, you have met your New Year's resolution."

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN:
"Be at War with your Vices, at Peace with your Neighbors, and let every New Year find you a better man."

ALBERT EINSTEIN:
"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow."

UNKNOWN:
"A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other."

OSCAR WILDE:
"Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account."

HOMER SIMPSON:
"You want me to spend more time with Dad? What about my New Year's resolution?
