The earth is said to be about 4.5 billion years old. Yet, we celebrate the birth of every New Year as if it is a novel occurrence. As the earth nonchalantly continues to spin around the sun, let us remind ourselves that life on this planet is one of those miracles that we can never fully comprehend. Here are some famous New Year quotes that inspire us to celebrate life.
- Debbie Harry
I get myself a gig somewhere, whether it's in a club, whether it's in a bar, it doesn't matter, and I just work on New Year's Eve because I always feel it's very symbolic for me for the next year, for the new year.
- Tucker Carlson

New Year's Eve, we're going to be doing a concert with the Philadelphia Orchestra in Symphony Hall. It makes me feel good, because of all the people they could have had, they wanted me! We do have to do a little work with the rhythm section.
- T. S. Eliot, Little Gidding
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.
- John Alexander Joyce
You must leave your many millions,
And the gay and festive crowd;
Though you roll in royal billions,
There's no pocket in a shroud.
These things I remember as I pour out my soul: how I used to go with the multitude, leading the procession to the house of God, with shouts of joy and thanksgiving among the festive throng.
- Henri Matisse
He who loves, flies, runs, and rejoices; he is free and nothing holds him back.
- Jay Leno
Now there are more overweight people in America than average-weight people. So overweight people are now average... which means, you have met your New Year's resolution.
- Catherine O'Hara
I know. I'm lazy. But I made myself a New Years resolution that I would write myself something really special. Which means I have 'til December, right?
- Thomas Jefferson
The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family.
- Julia Ward Howe
I shall stick to my resolution of writing always what I think no matter whom it offends.
