“May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.” — Neil Gaiman

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” -Oprah Winfrey

“One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things.”
– John Burroughs

“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

To change ones life: Start immediately. Do it flamboyantly. – William James

“All great changes are preceded by chaos” – Deepak Chopra

“And now they’re telling me I’m crazy over here because I don’t sit there like a goddamn vegetable. Don’t make a bit of sense to me. If that’s what’s bein’ crazy is, then I’m senseless, out of it, gone-down-the-road, wacko. But no more, no less, that’s it.” – One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest

 

“Maybe there is no Heaven. Or maybe this is all pure gibberish—a product of the demented imagination of a lazy drunken hillbilly with a heart full of hate who has found a way to live out where the real winds blow—to sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whisky, and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind except falling in love and not getting arrested . . . Res ipsa loquitur. Let the good times roll.” – HST

 

“I shambled after as I’ve been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!'” – Jack Kerouac

“To be a surrealist . . . means barring from your mind all remembrance of what you have seen, and being always on the lookout for what has never been.”
—Rene Magritte, quoted in Time, April 21, 1947
It is living and ceasing to live that are imaginary solutions. Existence is elsewhere.”
—Andre Breton
“We are all failures—at least, the best of us are.” – J.M. Barrie

“We are all capable of infinitely more than we believe. We are stronger and more resourceful than we know, and we can endure much more than we think we can.”  – David Blaine
“There is safety in the midst of danger. What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?”
– Van Gogh

 

“To be weird! That is my goal!”-Alfred Jarry

And finally….

“Sometimes you just have to pee in the sink.”- Charles Bukowski
