Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time. Jean Paul Richter
Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words.
Birthdays? yes, in a general way;
For the most if not for the best of men:
You were born (I suppose) on a certain day:
So was I: or perhaps in the night: what then?
James Kenneth Stephen
From our birthday, until we die,
Is but the winking of an eye
William Butler Yeats
There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents ... and only one for birthday presents, you know.
Old age: A great sense of calm and freedom. When the passions have relaxed their hold, you may have escaped, not from one master but from many.
the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.
Christina Georgina Rossetti
No wise man ever wished to be younger.
One of the signs of passing youth is the birth of a sense of fellowship with other human beings as we take our place among them.
The greatest comfort of my old age, and that which gives me the highest satisfaction, is the pleasing remembrance of the many benefits and friendly offices I have done to others.
May you live all the days of your life.
Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made.
Inside every older person is a younger person - wondering what the hell happened. (I love this one!!)
Cora Harvey Armstrong
To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.
Old age isn't so bad when you consider the alternative.
Of late I appear
To have reached that stage
When people who look old
Who are only my age.
When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it happened or not.
I'm at an age when my back goes out more than I do.
A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age. Robert Frost
You are only young once, but you can be immature for a lifetime.
John P. Grier (Isn't that the truest statement I've read ina a long time)
If I'd known I was going to live this long (100 years), I'd have taken better care of myself.
Men are like wine. Some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.
Let us respect gray hairs, especially our own.
J. P. Sears
Age is a high price to pay for maturity.
If we could be twice young and twice old we could correct all our mistakes.
Growing old is like being increasingly penalized for a crime you have not committed.
Call this an unfair generalization if you must, but old people are no good at everything.
Moe, from the Simpsons
Everything I know I learned after I was thirty.
Time and Tide wait for no man, but time always stands still for a woman of thirty.
Thirty-five is when you finally get your head together and your body starts falling apart.
After 30, a body has a mind of its own.
Thirty five is a very attractive age; London society is full of women who have of their own free choice remained thirty-five for years.
