Quote of the Day (Alfred Lord Tennyson, on the ‘Threshold of the Year To Come’)

I am only merry for an hour or two
Upon a birthday: if this life of ours
Be a good glad thing, why should we make us merry
Because a year of it is gone? but Hope
Smiles from the threshold of the year to come
Whispering 'It will be happier.'”Alfred Lord Tennyson, The Foresters, Robin Hood and Maid Marian (1892)

A day in 2014 is already gone, but these verses were too good not to use. Happy New Year, again, friends!
