“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right”

American media proprietor and talk show host Oprah Winfrey wrote in O, The Oprah Magazine for New Year’s Day 2004:

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.”

Oprah’s New Year’s toast has been included in many New Year’s Day quotation collections.


Wikipedia: Oprah Winfrey
Oprah Gail Winfrey (born Orpah Gail Winfrey; January 29, 1954) is an American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist. She is best known for her talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, which was the highest-rated television program of its kind in history and was nationally syndicated from 1986 to 2011. Dubbed the “Queen of All Media”, she has been ranked the richest African-American of the 20th century, the greatest black philanthropist in American history, and is currently North America’s first and only multi-billionaire black person.

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.
-- Oprah Winfrey

1 January 2006, The News Press (Fort Myers, FL), “Make a resolution to see more theater in 2006,” pg. L4:
While it’s been said that a New Year’s resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other, I’d rather go along with television talk show host Oprah Winfrey, who said it best: “Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right.”

26 February 2006, Indiana (PA) Gazette, “Using the Internet to advantage your gardening” by Maureen Gilmer, pg. E-6, col. 1:
“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it irght.”

It waa Oprah who said that. But no truer words were ever said for gardeners.
