'I am simply a 'book drunkard.' Books have the same irresistible temptation for me that liquor has for its devotee. I cannot withstand them.' L.M. Montgomery

'There are no faster or firmer friendships than those formed between people who love the same books.' Irving Stone

We've Turned a Page!


This was suppose to post automatically at midnight New Year's Day. Don't know what happened! But the sentiment is still the same!


We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.
                                ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce 


For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice.
                                ~T.S. Eliot


New Year's Day - Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.
                                 ~Mark Twain 


Character is the ability to carry out a good resolution long after the excitement of the moment has passed. 
~Cavett Robert


Come, gentlemen, I hope we shall drink down all unkindness.  
~William Shakespeare


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


Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering 'it will be happier'...
~Alfred Tennyson

Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one.
~Brad Paisley

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

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

A happy New Year! Grant that I
May bring no tear to any eye
When this New Year in time shall end
Let it be said I've played the friend,
Have lived and loved and labored here,
And made of it a happy year."
~Edgar Guest

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
