Thoughts for Thursday: Resolutions

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is New Year's Resolutions. Check out my other blog for more quotes.

Resolution One: I will live for God. Resolution Two: If no one else does, I still will.--Jonathan Edwards

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.--Abraham Lincoln

Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.--Benjamin Franklin

For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.--T.S. Elliot

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. So that's my wish for you...Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life. Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.--Neil Gaiman
