Final Quote(s) of the Day post of 2015: New Year's Eve

"Ring out wild bells to the wild sky,
      The flying cloud, the frosty light:
      The year is dying in the night;
      Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.


 "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."

 

(Alfred, Lord Tennyson)


"New Year's eve is like every other night; there is no pause in the march of the universe, no breathless moment of silence among created things that the passage of another twelve months may be noted; and yet no man has quite the same thoughts this evening that come with the coming of darkness on other nights. "

(Hamilton Wright Mabie)


"An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves."

(Bill Vaughan)
