Resolutions? None for me. How about you?

I was looking up quotes for my email signature and ran across a list of New Year's quotes. They all seem to be about making resolutions, something I stopped doing because I NEVER keep them, despite good intentions. How about you? Do you still make resolutions? Here are three quotes I liked:

- I do think New Year's resolutions can't technically be expected to begin on New Year's Day, don't you? Since, because it's an extension of New Year's Eve, smokers are already on a smoking roll and cannot be expected to stop abruptly on the stroke of midnight with so much nicotine in the system. Also dieting on New Year's Day isn't a good idea as you can't eat rationally but really need to be free to consume whatever is necessary, moment by moment, in order to ease your hangover. I think it would be much more sensible if resolutions began generally on January the second. ~Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones's Diary

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

- 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. ~Brooks Atkinson

I've kind of got a silent resolution and so far lived up to it - have practiced guitar for 60 minutes a day, each day, so far! But not today yet but I know I will before I lay my down to sleep.
