New Year’s Eve. We’ve literally been waiting for this day since the presidential candidates started making their way through the country and arguing on every platform known to man.

It’s been a rough year — not that we need to tell you — and it’s finally going to be put behind us. Tonight, we’re saying our final goodbyes to the tragic Brangelina breakup, voters thinking Harambe’s ghost would be a better fit for the White House than any of the presidential candidates, Kim Kardashian‘s social media cleanse (fingers crossed) and hopefully Mariah Carey‘s reality show. Good riddance to the BS that was 2016! Time to open a new chapter — hopefully it’s a more stable one.

Celebrate the end of 2016 with the top 10 best and most inspirational quotes about the new year. Bring on 2017!


“And now we welcome then new year. Full of things that have never been.” – Rainer Maria Rilke


“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.” – Neil Gaiman


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


“To have the kind of year you want to have, something has to happen that you can’t explain why it happened. Something has to happen that you can’t coach.” – Bobby Bowden


“New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change.” – Sarah Ban Breathnach


“The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.” – Melody Beattie

“Let our New Year’s resolution be this: we will be there for one another as fellow members of humanity, in the finest sense of the word.” – Goran Persson


“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.” – Gilbert K. Chesterton


“New Year’s Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time.” – James Agate
