In the year 1755, Benjamin Franklin wrote some advice still worth following in 2017:
"Be at War with your Vices, at Peace with your Neighbours, and let every New-Year find you a better Man."
I would change this quote to be gender-neutral, by substituting the word person for the word man at the end of the sentence. I can find no other fault with these wise words.
Happy New Year. Wishing you peace, happiness, and health in 2017.
