Stop and reflect on the year that has gone by. To remember both our triumphs and our missteps. Our promises made and broken. The times we opened ourselves up to great adventures or closed ourself down for fear of getting hurt. Because that`s What New Year`s is all about. Getting another chance. A chance to forgive. To do better, to do more, to give more, to love more. And to stop worrying about "what if" and start embracing what will be. So when that ball drops at midnight and it will drop let`s remember to be nice to each other. Kind to each other. And not just tonight, but all year long.

New Year`s Eve (movie)

If all morality comes from god, what does it mean to believe "god is good"? Wouldn`t that be a tautology? If Satan were to win the final battle (the spoiler says he doesn`t), defeat god, and become the most powerful force in the universe, wouldn`t he be our god? We`d meet the new boss, and he`d be the same as the old boss - good, by definition.

Penn Jillette

Some morning while you`re eating breakfast and you need something new to think about, though, you might want to ponder the fact that you see your kids across the table not as they are but as they once were, about three nanoseconds ago.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Just as one wouldn`t draw a lasting conclusion about oneself on the basis of a brief experience of indigestion, one needn`t do so on the basis of how one has thought or behaved for vast stretches of time in the past. A creative change of inputs to the system - learning new skills, forming new relationships, adopting new habits of attention - may radically transform one`s life.

Sam Harris

A theory in science is a logical creation. It reflects the most accurate experimental observations and the best understanding of how the world works. Yet a scientific theory doesn’t necessarily represent absolute truth. It can only capture the state of our knowledge so far. There’s every chance that a new piece of evidence will come to light that disproves the theory, and sends the theoreticians back to the drawing board.

Paul Parsons

New technologies will finally help medical professionals focus more on the patient as a human being instead of spending time hunting down pertinent information. They will be able to do what they do best: provide care with expertise. In turn, patients will get the chance to be equal partners in this process taking matters into their own hands.

Bertalan Mesko

One of the most important gifts we can give our children is the confidence to say "I don`t know." It`s the foundation from which we begin our investigation of the world: asking questions, taking the necessary time to understand the answers, and searching for new answers when the ones we have in hand don`t seem to work. The feeling of not knowing is also the source of wonder and awe.

Annaka Harris

By starting a new Internet business, an entrepreneur may create a new world.

Peter Thiel

In a small town or an apartment building with paper-thin walls, what I know about you is roughly the same as what you know about me. That's a basis for a social contract, in which we'll deliberately ignore some of what we know. The new privacyless world does away with that contract. I can know a lot about you without your knowing I know.

Eli Pariser

Consuming information that conforms to our ideas of the world is easy and pleasurable; consuming information that challenges us to think in new ways or question our assumptions is frustrating and difficult.

Eli Pariser

Science is much more than a body of knowledge. It is a way of thinking. This is central to its success. Science invites us to let the facts in, even when they don`t conform to our preconceptions. It counsels us to carry alternative hypotheses in our heads and see which ones best match the facts. It urges on us a fine balance between no-holds-barred openness to new ideas, however heretical, and the most rigorous skeptical scrutiny of everything - new ideas and established wisdom. We need wide appreciation of this kind of thinking. It works. It`s an essential tool for a democracy in an age of change. Our task is not just to train more scientists but also to deepen public understanding of science.

Carl Sagan

Every feature of a human organization is a result of a history, so that everything about them is negotiable and subject to improvement by the invention of new ways of doing things.

Lee Smolin

Mistakes are not just opportunities for learning; they are, in an important sense, the only opportunity for learning or making something truly new.

Daniel Dennett

Those who are successful give credit to their mistakes and give them a polished new name, experience.

Steve Maraboli

Although time seems to fly by, it never travels faster than one day at a time. Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest.
