New Year quotes for writers (and people who like quotes)

Neil Gaiman 2016Neil Gaiman
I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.

The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.


Rainer Maria Rilke
And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.

    I love that first quote of yours from Neil Gaiman, who I’ve never heard of before.
