Happy 2014!

“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.”
―    G.K. Chesterton

“Each age has deemed the new-born year

The fittest time for festal cheer.”
―    Walter Scott

“Real courage is when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”
―    Harper Lee,   To Kill a Mockingbird

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could.  Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day.  You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
―    Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The more we let God take us over, the more truly ourselves we become – because He made us. He invented us. He invented all the different people that you and I were intended to be. . .It is when I turn to Christ, when I give up myself to His personality, that I first begin to have a real personality of my own.”
―    C.S. Lewis

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”  ―    Harriet Tubman

“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”
―    Laura Ingalls Wilder

“Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?”
―    L.M. Montgomery

“The beginning is always today.”
―    Mary Wollstonecraft

May 2014 be a year filled with many hours of enjoyment, peace, and reading good books!  Happy New Year!

About Theresa

I live in an old farmhouse in upstate New York (no, *not* the big city!) in the country with my family, two dogs, two calves, and two horses. I love to cross stitch, quilt, read, and look at needlework blogs :) and I love coffee *and* tea!
