Live as long as you may. The first twenty years are the longest
half of your life.
At twenty years of age, the will reigns; at thirty, the wit;
and at forty, the judgement.
When a man is tired of life on his 21st birthday it indicates
that he is rather tired of something in himself.
F Scott Fitzgerald
All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too
Birthdays are natures way of telling us to eat more
Real birthdays are not annual affairs. Real birthdays are
the days when we have a new birth.
And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count.
It's the life in your years.
There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might
get un-birthday presents ... and only one for birthday presents,
Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens
on your birthday each year: The same energy that God invested
in you at birth is present once again.
Menachem Mendel Schneerson
Believing hear, what you deserve to hear:
Your birthday as my own to me is dear...
But yours gives most; for mine did only lend
Me to the world; yours gave to me a friend.
Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people
who have the most live the longest.
Finally 21, and legally able to do everything I've been doing
Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone
who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey
around the sun. Enjoy the trip.
Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, but it's up
to you to merit the face you have at fifty.
My heart is like a singing bird... Because the birthday of
my life is come, my love, is come to me.
How swift have flown
To me thy girlish times,
A woman grown beneath
My heedless eyes!
In vain I rack
My fancy to believe
That speaks thee twenty-one.
Wisdom doesn't necessarily come with age. Sometimes age just
shows up all by itself.
Here's a birthday spanking,
Sent you on a card,
One, Two, Three,
Put them right on hard,
Four, Five, Six
One to live on, one to grow on,
One to make you fat
It takes a long time to grow young.
Just remember, once you're over the hill you begin to pick
May you live to be 100 and may the last voice you hear be
Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.
Jean Paul Richter
The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly,
and lie about your age.
There is still no cure for the common birthday.
They say that age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping
it from creeping down into your body.
Whatever with the past has gone, The best is always yet to
You are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely.
You grow up the day you have your first real laugh yourself.
Youth is a disease from which we all recover.
