New Year’s, As Observed By Famous People
Here's what some famous people had to say about New Year's:
"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."
"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."
"Be at War with your Vices, at Peace with your Neighbors, and let every New Year find you a better man."
"Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow."
"A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other."
"Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account."
"You want me to spend more time with Dad? What about my New Year's resolution?
