Add some humour to your life with funny quotes that will cheer you up. Here are some good end-of-year quotes that will make you laugh.

  • New Year's is a harmless annual institution of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, friendly calls, and humbug resolutions.
  • What's your plan for the 31st night? Mine is to check all bookmarks I added to my browser in 2023.
  • I was going to resolve never to be late again this New Year, but I didn't wake up until January 2nd.
  • Stop trying to press rewind. It’s life, not a movie.
  • New Year is a time to start afresh, all over again, but you realize things are too complicated and can't begin to. Happy New Year!

  • The funniest part of a New Year is making new resolutions. I think you have one too. Let me know your answer, and I'll try not to laugh as I did the last year.
  • If you have been on this earth for more than a few years, chances are high that you will need to live longer to complete all those resolutions.
  • If it makes you feel better, keep telling yourself: this year, I will. It's like yelling fire in a crowded theatre. You'll get out before it becomes dangerous.

  • My New Year's resolution is to stop hanging out with people who ask me about my recent year's resolutions.
