Welcome 2010

Hello 2010. Who are you and what will you bring? How will you begin and how will you end? What events will mark you, cause the world to remember you with either a smile or a tear? Of course you will have your share of surprises. And you will be predictable in many ways, too.

Welcome 2010. And what better way to begin our time together than with some wonderful quotes and sayings? Here are some of my favorites:

"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man." - Benjamin Franklin

"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"

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

Welcome 2010.


  1. I like the Benjamin Franklin one best of all - great words of advice to start out a new, fresh year.

    Happy 2010 :D

  2. You know, I just ran across that T. S. Eliot the other day. First time I'd seen it. But B. Franklin is still my favorite.

  3. Ah yes, who can match the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin? But I'm glad that I was able to include a quote that you hadn't seen yet, Bish! : )
