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
Happy New Years everyone. ~ August

The only way to spend New Year's Eve is either quietly with friends or in a brothel. Otherwise when the evening ends and people pair off, someone is bound to be left in tears. W.H. (Wystan Hugh) Auden (1907–1973), Anglo-American poet. "31 December, 1947," The Table Talk of W.H. Auden, compiled by Alan Ansen, ed. Nicholas Jenkins (1990).
