New Year Quotations, Quotes, Quotation Collection

Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.
 

Brooks Atkinson

Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder - storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.

Thomas Mann

Then sing, young hearts that are full of cheer,
With never a thought of sorrow;
The old goes out, but the glad young year
Comes merrily in tomorrow.

Emily Miller

Each age has deemed the new - born year
The fittest time for festal cheer.

Sir Walter Scott

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Lord Tennyson
