Happy New Year Shayari 2017 whatsup/facebookO good New Year, we clasp
This warm shut hand of thine,
Loosing for ever, with half sigh, half gasp,
That which from ours falls like dead fingers' twine:
Ay, whether fierce its grasp
Has been, or gentle, having been, we know
That it was blessed: let the Old Year go.
~Dinah Maria Craik (1826–1887), "A Psalm for New Year's Eve," 1855 ["The author of 'John Halifax, Gentleman,' has written to her publishers to say that she does not wish her name to appear as it usually does, Dinah Muloch Craik, but as Dinah Maria Craik. The fashion of retaining one's family surname after marriage is peculiarly American. In England they drop it, and retain the middle name." The Critic, 1883 December 8th —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]
A Happy New Year! There is a glow of cheer and optimism in the very words "New Year." The old year, with its anxieties and worries, is over. It too brought happy days and sunshine, and in memory we must cherish the bright places. ~May Louise Crane, "Poet-O-Grams," American Poetry Magazine, January 1934
New Year's Day—Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual. Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink, and swore his last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever. We shall also reflect pleasantly upon how we did the same old thing last year about this time. However, go in, community. New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls, and humbug resolutions, and we wish you to enjoy it with a looseness suited to the greatness of the occasion. ~Mark Twain (1835–1910), in Territorial Enterprise, 1863 January 1st
1. A Wise Man should never resolve upon any thing, at least never let the World know his Resolution, for if he cannot arrive at that, he is asham'd....
2. Never tell your Resolution before hand; but when the Cast is thrown, Play it as well as you can to win the Game you are at.
~John Selden (1584–1654), "Wisedom," Table-talk, published posthumously, 1689.

When then is lost, as time is by,
we look upon the yearly wine
to see our substance in the lees.
Did tribe and purse most pleasing leave?
To look for clear and faithful sense,
that gives a bodied stance bouquet,
then see the vat at mirror's face
and find in it, the yearly pace.
~E. Marshall, "Vintner Epilogue (Happy Old Year)," 2008
Many years ago I resolved never to bother with New Year's resolutions, and I've stuck with it ever since. ~David J. Beard (1947–2016), tweet, 2009 December 31st
I am fading from you,
But one draweth near,
Called the Angel-guardian
Of the coming year.
If my gifts and graces
Coldly you forget,
Let the New Year's Angel
Bless and crown them yet...
May you hold this Angel
Dearer than the last,—
So, I bless his Future,
While he crowns my Past.
~Adelaide A. Procter (1825–1864), "The Old Year's Blessing," A Chaplet of Verses, 1862 [Procter, a philanthropist, published her book of poems for the benefit of The Providence Row Night Refuge for Homeless Women and Children. —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]
I have always liked the idea of hearing the clock strike twelve on the last night of the old year.... wakeful to welcome the new year's angel when the old one has winged his flight from us, bearing with him the record of our inner years, its sins and sorrows. ~Claribel (Charlotte Alington Pye Barnard, 1830–1869), "New Year's Eve," Fireside Thoughts, Ballads, etc., etc., 1865
But then I do think New Year's resolutions can't technically be expected to begin on New Year's Day, don't you? Since, because it's an extension of New Year's Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system. Also dieting on New Year's Day isn't a good idea as you can't eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second. ~Helen Fielding (b.1958), "Sunday 1 January,"Bridget Jones's Diary, 1996

New Year's Eve, where auld acquaintance be forgot. Unless, of course, those tests come back positive. ~Jay Leno (b.1950)
For 'tis the season, when the nights are long,
There's time, e'er morn, for each to sing his song.
The year departs, a blessing on its head,
We mourn not for it, for it is not dead:
Dead? What is that? A word to joy unknown,
Which love abhors, and faith will never own.
~Hartley Coleridge (1796–1849), "New-Year's Day," Poems, 1833
There is too much said at New Year's about turning over a new leaf. Are the old leaves all so badly written that we must hasten to forget them? Is the blank whiteness of the untouched page more pleasant to the eye or more fortifying to the will than those closely written, underlined, untidy, but familiar pages which make up the story of one's life? ~Bliss Perry, "Turning the Old Leaves, The Atlantic Monthly, January 1907
I found that a new oath holds pretty well; but... when it is become old and frayed out and damaged by a dozen annual retryings of its remains, it ceases to be serviceable; any little strain will snap it. ~Mark Twain (1835–1910), speech, Tile Club Dinner for Laurence Hutton, New York, 1885 March 31st, quoted in Mark Twain Speaking, Paul Fatout, ed., University of Iowa Press, 1976
Now the year is dying fast...
All his children stand around...
Twelve there are: I dimly mark
All their figures in the dark,
Hovering near the patriarch...
Pressing the year's death-cold brow,
I rose up with many a vow.
~Caroline May (1820–c.1891), a.k.a. Caromaia, "The Dying Year's Counsels," inThe Christian Treasury, 1880
There are those who try to bottle the old year for safekeeping but at midnight the cork always pops. ~Terri Guillemets, "Memories old & new," 2005
All the west, whereon the sunset sealed the dead year's glorious grave
Fast with seals of light and fire and cloud that light and fire illume,
Glows at heart and kindles earth and heaven with joyous blush and bloom,
Warm and wide as life, and glad of death that only slays to save...
~Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837–1909), "Sunset and Moonrise" (New Year's Eve, 1889) ["No Englishman will need to be reminded of the date on which Westminster Abbey was honoured by the funeral of Robert Browning." The Athenæum —tεᖇᖇ¡·g]
