“For last years words belong to last years language
And next years words await another voice.”

“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. Youre doing things youve never done before, and more importantly, youre Doing Something.

So thats my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobodys ever made before. Dont freeze, dont stop, dont worry that it isnt good enough, or it isnt perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is youre scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”

―G.K. Chesterton,A Chesterton calendar



Each age has deemed the new-born year
The fittest time for festal cheer.”




―Walter Scott(1771-1832),苏格兰文学家
