Whether you are spending a romantic New Year’s Eve night with your partner or enjoying the company of friends and family, you are probably going to want some great toasts to welcome 2014.

New Year’s Eve toasts can be friendly, romantic, and downright funny.

Here a few New Year’s Eve toasts ideas you can use this year as you ring in the New Year:

“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

“Ring out the old, ring in the new, Ring, happy bells, across the snow: The year is going, let him go; Ring out the false, ring in the true.” Lord Alfred Tennyson

“May the Lord keep you in his hand and never close his fist too tight on you. And may the face of every good news and the back of every bad news be toward us in the New Year.” Traditional Irish Saying

“Here's to the bright New Year
And a fond farewell to the old;
Here's to the things that are yet to come
And to the memories that we hold.”

“I used to know a clever toast
But now I cannot think it
So fill your glass to anything
And damn your souls, I'll drink it!
Life, alas
Is very drear
Up with the glass
Down with the beer!”

“May you never lie, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in each other's arms.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink with all of us
because we love you”

“Be at war with your voices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every New Year find you a better man.” Benjamin Franklin

"Love to one, friendship too many, and good will to all."

"If you are fortunate to be in the company of those most important to you on New Year’s Eve, toast the occasion with a heartfelt or witty saying, and make the night memorable.” Anonymous
