T.S. Eliott

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.

Bill Vaughan

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.

Confucius

They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom.

Havelock Ellis

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.

Isadora James

A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.

King Solomon

A merry heart doeth good like medicine.

Charles Dickens

I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.

Clement Clarke Moore

He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot,
and his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot.
A bundle of toys he had flung on his back,
and he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.
His eyes--how they twinkled! His dimples, how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
and the beard on his chin was as white as the snow.
The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
and the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath.
He had a broad face and a little round belly,
that shook when he laughed, like a bowl full of jelly.

Buddy the Elf

We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.

Margaret B. Runbeck

Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but a manner of traveling.
