Every man who possibly can should force himself to a holiday of a full month in a year, whether he feels like taking it or not.
Vacation: Two weeks on the sunny sands - and the rest of the year on the financial rocks.
A garden is never so good as it will be next year
When planning for a year, plant corn. When planning for a decade, plant trees. When planning for life, train and educate people.
Pro-rated at 500 at-bats a year that means that for two years out of the fourteen I played, I never even touched the ball.
I don't love baseball. I don't love most of today's players. I don't love the owners. I do love, however, the baseball that is in the heads of baseball fans. I love the dreams of glory of 10-year-olds, the reminiscences of 70-year-olds. The greatest baseball arena is in our heads, what we bring to the games, to the telecasts, to reading newspaper reports.
Tomorrow is the only day in the year that appeals to a lazy man.
My goal this year is basically to find the fairways
What were you worried about this time last year? Can't remember
This was a great year for preventive worrying. Seldom in recent history have so many people worried about so many things that didn't happen in the end.
If you want to test your memory, try to recall what you were worrying about one year ago today.
Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!î
Do you remember the things you were worrying about a year ago? How did they work out? Didn't you waste a lot of fruitless energy on account of most of them? Didn't most of them turn out all right after all

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better man.
The study of economy usually shows us that the best time for purchase was last year.
Volume depends precisely on the writer's having been able to sit in a room every day, year after year, alone.
If automobiles had followed the same development cycle as the computer, a Rolls-Royce would today cost $100, get a million miles per gallon, and explode once a year, killing everyone inside
To the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty, and in the same field, it beholds, every hour, a picture which was never seen before, and which shall never be seen again.
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.
The country and the Congress were misled into war. I regret that we were not given the truth; as I said more than a year ago, knowing what we know now, I would not have gone to war in Iraq. And knowing now the full measure of the Bush Administrationís duplicity and incompetence, I doubt there are many members of Congress who would give them the authority they abused so badly. I know I would not.
Once over there [Balkans], I felt extremely patriotic. Here are these people, from 18-year-olds to military veterans, enduring real duress for the cause of peace. I don't ever want to play for a regular audience again, only military folks who are starving for music.
I call it fan fatigue. I went to see Bob Dylan last year, who I think is absolutely incredible, but he suffers from his audience.
That was my aspiration, so I was there in a seminary with just boys who were studying to be priests. Pretty rigorous schooling; we never got home, we stayed there all year.
If a man wishes to truly not be written about, he would do well not to write letters to 18-year-old girls, inviting them into his life.
