Gramsci hated New Year’s Day

That’s why I hate New Year’s. I want every morning to be a new year’s for me. Every day I want to reckon with myself, and every day I want to renew myself. No day set aside for rest. I choose my pauses myself, when I feel drunk with the intensity of life and I want to plunge into animality to draw from it new vigour.

schrieb Antonio Gramsci am 1. Januar 1916 in der Turin-Ausgabe von Avanti! in seiner Kolumne “Sotto la Mole”. Der Text wurde vor einem Jahr im Viewpoint Mag veröffentlicht. Via Ingo Stützle.
