春节是辞旧迎新的时候,人们可以在岁末整理一下心情,告别过去,开始新的征程。国外有很多知名的作家都写过他们对新年的感受,这些感受跟我们自己的有什么不同呢?

Hartley Coleridge

For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning.

看看知名作家如何话新年

T. S. Eliot

Each age has deemed the new born year

The fittest time for festal cheer

Walter Scott

Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve. Middle age is when you're forced to.

Bill Vaughan

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.

No one ever regarded the First of January with indifference. It is that from which all date their time, and count upon what is left. It is the nativity of our common Adam.

Charles Lamb

The proper behavior all through the holiday season is to be drunk. This drunkenness culminates on New Year's Eve, when you get so drunk you kiss the person you're married to.

P.J. O'Rourke

People are so worried about what they eat between Christmas and the New Year, but they really should be worried about what they eat between the New Year and Christmas.

Author Unknown Drop the last year into the silent limbo of the past. Let it go, for it was imperfect, and thank God that it can go.

Brooks Atkinson

We meet today

To thank Thee for the era done,

And Thee for the opening one.

John Greenleaf Whittier

Of all sound of all bells... most solemn and touching is the peal which rings out the Old Year.

William Thomas

Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.

Thomas Mann

New Year's is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.

Mark Twain

Every man regards his own life as the New Year's Eve of time.

Jean Paul Richter

The only way to spend New Year's Eve is either quietly with friends or in a brothel. Otherwise when the evening ends and people pair off, someone is bound to be left in tears.

Oprah Winfrey

Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right.

Edith Lovejoy Pierce

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.

Ellen Goodman

We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives... not looking for flaws, but for potential.

G. K. Chesterton

The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul.
