Thousands of people attending New Year’s Eve celebrations in London, United Kingdom, on Tuesday 31 Dec. 2013 experienced the world's first multi-sensory fireworks display as Vodafone, in partnership with the Mayor of London, had created a spectacular display on the banks of the River Thames that they were able to taste and smell, as well as see and hear.

Here’s some New Year’s quotes and sayings for 2014:

“Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties,” – Helen Keller

“The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective,” – G.K. Chesterton, English poet and writer

“Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365-page book. Write a good one,” -Brad Paisley

“Sometimes too much to drink is barely enough,” – Mark Twain, author

“New Year’s Resolution: To tolerate fools more gladly, provided this does not encourage them to take up more of my time,” – James Agate, British critic and diarist

“First you take a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes you,” – F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of “The Great Gatsby”

“Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man,” – Benjamin Franklin

“New Year’s Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual,” – Mark Twain

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right,” – Oprah Winfrey

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. If you’re making mistakes, you’re doing something,” – Neil Gaiman, author
