The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul.
G. K. Chesterton

Every man regards his own life as the New Year's Eve of time.
Jean Paul Richter

A dog's New Year's Resolution: I will not chase that stick unless I actually see it leave his hand!So what are my 2011 resolutions? There are many actually, but everything start from this resolution, to keep more time for myself.
