Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better man.
A health to you, a wealth to you, And the best that life can give to you.
May your right hand always be stretched out in friendship, but never in want.
May the best of this year be the worst of next.
May you never lie, cheat, or drink. But if you must lie, lie in each other's arms. If you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink with all of us because we love you.
Love to one, friendship to many, and good will to all.
Happy New Year, friends. May the New Year always be better than the old.
