New Year

A Quote by Lucille Clifton on renewal, growth, new beginnings, birthdays, and new year

i am running into a new year
and the old years blow back
like a wind
that i catch in my hair
like strong fingers like
all my old promises and
it will be hard to let go
of what i said to myself
about myself
when i was sixteen and
twenty-six and thirty-six
even thirty-six but
i am running into a new year
and i beg what i love and
i leave to forgive me

Lucille Clifton (1936 -)

A Quote by Jim Collins on questions, new year, resoltuion, business, passion, work, and flow

The start of the New Year is a perfect time to start a stop doing list and to make this the cornerstone of your New Year resolutions, be it for your company, your family or yourself. It also is a perfect time to clarify your three circles, mirroring at a personal level the three questions...

1) What are you deeply passionate about?
2) What are you are genetically encoded for -- what activities do you feel just "made to do"?
3) What makes economic sense -- what can you make a living at?

Those fortunate enough to find or create a practical intersection of the three circles have the basis for a great work life.

A Quote by Lewis Carroll on children, christmas, happiness, peace, play, wishes, new year, fairies, and good will

Christmas-Greetings [From a Fairy to a Child]

Lady, dear, if Fairies may
  For a moment lay aside
Cunning tricks and elfish play,
  'Tis at happy Christmas-tide.

We have heard the children say -
  Gentle children' whom we love -
Long ago on Christmas Day,
  Came a message from above.

Still, as Christmas-tide comes round,
  They remember it again -
Echo still the joyful sound
  "Peace on earth, good-will to men!"

Yet the hearts must childlike be
  Where such heavenly guests abide;
Unto children, in their glee,
  All the year is Christmas-tide.

Thus, forgetting tricks and play
  For a moment, Lady dear,
We would wish you, if we may,
  Merry Christmas, glad New Year!

Lewis Carroll (1832 - 1898)
