For last year's words belong to last year's language,
And next year's words await another voice.
TS Eliot
Old Year and New Year by Christina Rossetti

New Year met me somewhat sad:
Old Year left me tired,
Stripped of favourite things I had
Baulked of much desired:
Yet further on my road to-day
God willing, further on my way.
Happy New Year

Is cultural knowledge more important than language skills?

    Ideas are fat but reality is slim @lisa? Is this a Chinese saying? I guess what you mean is that it is all very well in theory, but in practice it isn't the case.
