“Be at war with your voices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every New Year find you a better man.”
“Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow ye diet.”
“Old Time, in whose banks we deposit our notes
Is a miser who always wants guineas for groats;
He keeps all his customers still in arrears
By lending them minutes and charging them years.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes
“May you never lie, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in each other’s arms.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink with all of us
because we love you”
“I used to know a clever toast
But now I cannot think it
So fill your glass to anything
And damn your souls, I’ll drink it!
Is very drear
Up with the glass
Down with the beer!”
“If you are fortunate to be in the company of those most important to you on New Year’s Eve, toast the occasion with a heartfelt or witty saying, and make the night memorable.”
“May the Lord keep you in his hand and never close his fist too tight on you. And may the face of every good news and the back of every bad news be toward us in the New Year.”
Traditional Irish Saying
Happy New Year To You
“Happy New Year to you!
May every great new day
Bring you sweet surprises–
A happiness buffet.”
“Happy New Year to you,
And when the new year’s done,
May the next year be even better,
Full of pleasure, joy and fun.”
“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language And next year’s words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.”
“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 Alfred Tennyson
“Here’s to the bright New Year
And a fond farewell to the old;
Here’s to the things that are yet to come
And to the memories that we hold.”
“Love to one, friendship too many, and good will to all.”
