Happy new year. Each of the last few years, I’ve written a blog post about resolutions during the first week of January. While I encourage you to read those posts—you can find last year’s here—I feel I said what want to say about the topic. So, I’m going to do something different this year. Here are a series of memes I made which paraphrase quotes from famous writers as messages, wishes, and yes, even resolutions, for the new year. I hope you enjoy them.

Wishing you a surcease of sorrow in the new year, Edgar Allan Poe
Another year has passed. So it goes, Kurt Vonnegut
The new year dwells in possibilities, Emily Dickinson
Wishing you the best of times (and not the worst of times) in the new year, Charles Dickens
Wishing you a new year in which you rise, Maya Angelou
Wishing you a year full of unexpected journeys, JRR Tolkien
Wishing you a year free of war and full of peace, Leo Tolstoy
Be fearless and therefore powerful in the new year, Mary Shelley

Once again, a happy new year.
