Happy New Year!!! How appropriate that my first Thoughtful Thursday blog lands on New Year's Day! One of my favorite things to collect is fabulous quotes, so here are a few to begin 2009 with.
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.
~T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"
One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things. ~John Burroughs
We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential. ~Ellen Goodman
May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions. ~Joey Adams
We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
Check back tomorrow to see where I will be writing my book.
