Quote du jour/Henry Ward Beecher

Every man should be born again on the first day of January.  Start with a fresh page.  Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first day of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past.

  Henry Ward Beecher

  1. Happy New Year, and what an excellent quote for it! For regret lives in the past, but anticipation is all in the future. x

  3. I do like that quote, Nan. I will try to remember it all year.

    My father was a New Year's baby and January 1 was and still is special to me.

    Have a wonderful New Year and take care of yourself and enjoy your family.

    1. In the days this was written, it was a good thing to have some weight. So different from now when all you hear about is how one is supposed to lose, lose, lose!
