Ring out the old
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.
Never tell your resolution beforehand, or it's twice as onerous a duty.
Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man.
