Hang the twinkle lights, pop the champagne, and throw on something sparkly, because the worst year in recent history is finally almost over and it's time to celebrate. While there are a lot of ways to ring in 2017, the very best way for book nerds is to dress like the Fitzgeralds, drink like Hemingway, party like Anaïs Nin, and toast at midnight with one of these New Year quotes from famous authors. Trust me, by midnight, you're better off sharing someone else's words than slurring your own.
Its no secret that 2016 was a rough year for just about everyone. Filled with violence and terror, dirty politics and disappointing election results, hatred and bigotry, the last 366 days are something we'd all rather put behind us, literally and metaphorically. But with a new year on the horizon, now isn't the time for negativity and doubt — it's the time for hope, change, and (of course) plenty of clinking champagne glasses.
The countdown is officially on, and 2017 is almost here. Instead of spending the night reliving the worst parts of 2016, do what any good writer would do and put on something fancy, pour yourself a glass of something strong, and share some of these 17 New Year quotes from authors to help ring in the new year the right way: with beautiful words of wisdom.

Fishing for Wishes returned to Lowestoft South beach. Pictures: MICK HOWES
But it was all in the name of charity as a fishing match attracted a good turnout to Lowestoft’s South Beach on Saturday (December 9).
Catching hopes and dreams, the anglers were all hoping to net more than just fish, as the competition was held in aid of the Make-A-Wish Foundation UK.
The Fishing for Wishes event saw keen anglers from around the region “in good spirits” as they aimed to become the new champion – after the winner of the two previous events in 2013 and 2015 was unable to defend his title this year.
With many of the competitors decked out in Santa outfits, some had even decorated their shelters with a festive theme for the popular biennial event for the first time.
At the Fishing for Wishes event in 2013, more than £7,700 was raised while in 2015 £9,512 was raised to help fund special treats for seriously sick children.
Phil White, event manager, said a “great day” was had by all.
“I’m truly grateful to everyone involved and everyone who supported us – you’re all winners to me,” he said.
“The whole reason behind the Santa theme and the event date is that Santa grants children’s wishes at Christmas and that is exactly what we aim to do.”
Jeff Stannard was crowned as the new champion, with biggest flat fish awarded to Jamie Bale with a quality dab of 31cm. Dev Bale won the best junior title.
The overall tally raised is not yet known as sponsorship is still being collected as the final total goes to Make-A-Wish Foundation UK.

With Mark’s help, Make-A-Wish crafted an extraordinary wish experience for James. To build the suspense, Mark sent James a video message saying he wanted to be part of his wish – but that it might be some time before they could get together.
“Little did James know that we’d planned for him and parents Peter and Joanne to fly from their home in Western Australia to spend a week fishing and filming an episode of Fishing Addiction at Clearwater Island Lodge,” Paul said.
“To get James to the Northern Territory without arousing suspicion, we told him that Make-A-Wish had received a donated fishing charter experience.
“On the morning of the big reveal, James and his family went to a Darwin shop ‘to meet a fishing guide’ where there was a camera crew waiting. Mark jumped out from behind a fishing tackle display for the surprise of a lifetime!”
Mum Joanne said it was wonderful to see James forget about his life-threatening medical condition and just enjoy being the centre of attention, doing what he loves.
James’ heart condition, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, means that the left ventricle responsible for pumping oxygenated blood around the body didn’t form in the womb. His first open-heart surgery was at two days old, and Joanne said they’ve since lost count of how many surgeries James has endured.
“Whilst James gets too out of breath to play highly active sports, he does enjoy swimming in a squad, playing competitive lawn bowls, and of course, fishing!” Joanne said.
“The highlight was James and his dad both catching their first barramundi, and watching the two grow closer together. James also learnt new fishing skills for life from hanging out with Bergie and his crew. It’s done wonders for his confidence.
“Down the track, when times get tough with James' health, he will always be able to look back and relive those magical moments.”
Mark said he could relate to James’ story, as his youngest son spent time in hospital as a baby.
“It just made sense to me that if we could make a difference to a young fella’s life then we should definitely help out,” Mark said. “Not only did we get to see the family all have an awesome time together at Clearwater Island Lodge, but our team also got such a buzz out of providing this opportunity for them.
“I guess that’s what Fishing Addiction is all about and why we do it – seeing people’s fishing dreams come to life.”
The Fishing Addiction episode at Clearwater Island Lodge will be aired next year.
Every day, six families around Australia receive the devastating news that their child has a life-threatening medical condition. Since 1985 Make-A-Wish has granted more than 8000 wishes to very sick kids around Australia. As the charity receives no government funding, they rely on the support of community to make wishes like James’ come true.
