I have always liked both the truth and the sentiment of this quote. Full of things that have never been; in sentiment it is realistically hopeful and in truth it speaks to the life that is about to unfold, neither positive or negative, but one that will be and just is.
It makes no promises, the rest is up to us, the way we maneuver and navigate through a new mindset (because that's what New Year's really are about, a new mindset and a way to mark the passing of time).
So here is to being on the brink of a new year, may this be the beginning of anything that you want. -tM
