“Each first of January that we arrive at is an imaginary milestone — at once a resting place for thought and meditation, and a starting place for fresh exertion in the performance of our journey. The man who does not at least propose to himself to be better this year than he was last must be either very good or very bad indeed.”
- Charles Lamb (1775-1834), as quoted by Joan Anderson, in A Year By The Sea, p.82
