Quote: I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.--Neil Gaimon

Today's poem is by Alfred Lord Tennyson

And because it is a poem you have probably read before or parts,  here is another by Adrienne Su.

Happy New Year!
