Resolutions?


I know. I’m lazy. But I made myself a New Year’s resolution that I would write myself something really special. Which means I have ‘til December, right?
~ Catherine O’Hara

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

Now there are more overweight people in America than average-weight people. So overweight people are now average… which means, you have met your New Year's resolution.
~ Jay Leno

Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.
~ Oscar Wilde

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
A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one Year and out the other.
~ Anonymous

Mark Twain is so darn funny. I wish I could attend a cocktail party with him and Benjamin Franklin.

mshatch said...

I agree with Dianne but I'd like to invite Samuel Johnson to the party, too :)

Im sorry yo bring it to your blog, but I don't appreciate being lied about, or people talking about my family that way.Apologies again nevertheless.

Luanne Smith said...

Very funny. And true!

Stephen Hayes said...

Love the Oscar Wilde quote. Must remember it.

DL Hammons said...

I love the last one! :)

Kate Larkindale said...

Ah yes... Resolutions. Love the quotes. Wouldn't it be fun to be in the same room as Oscar Wilde and Mark Twaine?

Cynthia said...

I made some resolutions for this year...As I explained in my recent IWSG post, I consider resolutions more as considerations. Wink!

Lynda R Young said...

lol, I love these quotes, especially the last one.

Ella said...

OMG, these are great, fun, honest and so revealing! I love what you shared~ I just picked a word, "grow". I need to push things aside and do it anyway, reach and stretch towards the sun and keep going! I hope your New Year is off to a great start :D

Cecilia Robert said...

LindaC said...

I especially love the last one!

Patsy said...

Great quotes. Seems we shouldn't feel too bad if we break a resolution or two.

Kelly Hashway said...

LOL. These are great. The anonymous one at the end might be my favorite, though. :)

unikorna said...

Lovely quotes :))), I must a
admit new year resolutions don't work for me either, Catherine O'Hara spoke my mind precisely. Have a great year Lexa.

tfwalsh said...

These are good... made me giggle:)

Pk Hrezo said...

LOL.. Those are great! Especially that Leno one. Hee hee Every year my resolution is not to make any resolutions.

Hope your new year is going along smashingly, Lexa! :D

Elise Fallson said...

LOL! I stopped making New Years resolutions a long time ago. (;

Christine Rains said...

*LOL* Great quotes! I find if I call them goals rather than resolutions, I keep them.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

The Jay Leno one is scary because it's true.

Cathy Keaton said...

LOL. These are so funny! Jay Leno's quote is sadly true, isn't it? I hope I can keep my resolution which is to finish the first draft of my manuscript by the end of the year.

Beverly Stowe McClure said...

These are great. Now I know I have the whole year to write something special. Whee. Can take my time. :) I stopped making resolutions years ago because they didn't last a week.

Ciara said...

Ha, so drunk you kiss the one your married to.

Ciara said...

Ugh, excuse the typo. It's late. :(

Lexie C. said...

Love the Mark Twain one!! :)

Jimmy Fungus said...

I don't make New Year's resolutions. But that Jay Leno quote makes a good point. If the average person in America is overweight, then I guess if you're overweight, you're actually average weight. So a lot of people became average weight without having to do anything. Good for them, I guess.

These are great, especially Jay Leno's and Anonymous'. I hope you're having a really nice 2013, Lexa.
