I hereby resolve to make fewer resolutions

Dalrymple has a lighthearted piece in today’s New York Daily News, in which he forswears New Year’s resolutions:

Does there come a time in life when we wake from the dream of self-improvement, when we can accept with a good grace that our character, our habits and our tastes are fixed, and that this must be true of other people as well as of ourselves?
Given his prolific output, his devoted readers may not be surprised to learn that his desk and study “are not only a mess, but that they have always been a mess.”
