“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language
And next year’s words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning.”
— T. S. Eliot
Not generally given to excess, moderate in their habits and restrained in wielding the corkscrew, Quadrant readers are far too sensible to begin 2015 with hangovers.
Then again, as Zeg notes, there is no shortfall in existing headaches, as the year now winding down has left us with more than enough to go on with.
