From the staff of Plymouth Voice to all faithful readers:

May the New Year bring you good health, happiness and prosperity. Without you we wouldn’t be here today.



New Year’s is a harmless annual institution, of no particular use to anybody save as a scapegoat for promiscuous drunks, and friendly calls and humbug resolutions.

Mark Twain


Never be afraid to raise your voice for honesty and truth and compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world…would do this, it would change the earth.

William Faulkner


Show the readers everything, tell them nothing.

Ernest Hemmingway


I have written a great many stories and I still don’t know how to go about it except to write it and take my chances.

John Steinbeck


Intelligence is measured by a person’s ability to see validity within both sides of contradicting arguments.

F. Scott Fitzgerald


One day a long time from now you’ll cease to care anymore whom you please or what anybody has to say about you. That’s when you’ll finally produce the work you’re capable of.

J. D. Salinger


If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing well. If it is worth having, it is worth waiting for. If it is worth attaining, it is worth fighting for. If it is worth experiencing, it is worth putting aside time for.

Oscar Wilde


Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.

George Orwell


It is very difficult for the prosperous to be humble.

Jane Austen


Be truthful, and the result is bound to be amazingly interesting.

Virginia Woolf


Life is ours to be spent, not to be saved.

D. H. Lawrence


Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.

Anne Frank


Let your love be stronger than your hate or anger. Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break.

H.G. Wells


We are always the same age inside.

Gertrude Stein
