Birthday Quotes To Help Celebrate

It is always fun to celebrate birthdays, as well as to think about the many things that have been said about or that relate to them. Aside from getting wiser, one can delight in good food and good company.

Here are some awesome birthday quotes to liven up your big day, and perhaps even share with family and friends.

 

 

Famous Birthday Quotes Just for You

Since first reading Dr. Seuss, my favorite birthday quote has been:

1.) “Today you are You; that is truer than true.

There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”  – Dr. Seuss

 

Getting older (and hopefully wiser), we face old age, our senior years. Perhaps Emily Dickinson has the right idea:

2.) “We turn not older with years, but newer every day” – Emily Dickinson

 

Sam Hagar reinforced this idea saying:

3.) “Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.” – Sam Hagar

 

Can we live with that idea? Here’s what I always say:

4.) “Wow, thank you Lord for another great chance to make a difference.”

Birthday Quotes To Help Celebrate

 

Yes, I am grateful that I’m still alive. But life isn’t forever, so remember:

5.) “Live as if you were to die tomorrow.

Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Mahatma Gandhi

 

Henry Ford agreed:

6.) “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at 20 or 80.

Anyone who keeps learning stays young.

The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young”. – Henry Ford

 

Band leader, Les Brown emphasized:

7.) “You’re never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream” – Les Brown

 

George Eliot said:

8.) “It is never too late to be what you might have been.” – George Eliot

 

 

Inspirational Birthday Quotes and Sayings

While I was still in school, I had to read writings by ancient philosophers. I never thought they were relevant to me. As another birthday approaches, I’ve looked at some of those words of wisdom, re-evaluating their relevance.

Perhaps they are things that I’ve learned to live by, to accept – and yes – use as birthday quotes:

 

9.) “God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to

give ourselves the gift of living well,” – Voltaire

Birthday Quotes To Help Celebrate

 

A great birthday quote by William Shakespeare’s is:

10.) “With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.” – William Shakespeare

 

Mark Twain agreed,

11.) “Wrinkles should merely indicate where the smiles have been.” – Mark Twain

 

Certainly some good things to remember as we celebrate birthdays! Samuel Ullman said:

12.) “Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.” – Samuel Ullman

 

At birthday gatherings you also might also want to quote:

13.) “Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words,” – Plautus

 

14.) “Man’s main task in life is to give birth to himself,

to become what he potentially is,” – E. Fromm

 

15.) “Age is opportunity no less than youth itself,” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

16.) “Happiness is when what you think, what you say,

and what you do are in harmony,” – Mahatma Gandhi

 

Or you might hear:

17.) “I’m like a fine wine. They don’t bring me out very much

But, I am well preserved,” – Rose Kennedy

 

18.) “Beautiful young people are accidents of nature,

But beautiful old people are works of art,” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Birthday Quotes To Help Celebrate

 

Of course in discussing getting older, other pearls of wisdom are shared:

19.) “The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune,” – English Proverb

 

20.) “None are as old as those who have outlived enthusiasm,” – Henry David Thoreau

 

21.) “It’s not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old,

They grow old because they stop pursuing dreams,” – Gabriel G. Marquez

 

Another great birthday quote, this one by a comedian is:

22.) “Age is strictly a case of mind over matter.

If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter,” – Jack Benny

 

Another by George Burns is,

23.) “You can’t help getting older, but you don’t have to get old.” – George Burns

 

With laughter, Bob Hope said,

24.) “You know you’re getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.” – Bob Hope

 

Who would want to fix things?

25.) “If we could be twice young and twice old,

we could correct all our mistakes,” – Euripides

 

For those with a strong belief in God:

26.) “Our life is a gift from the Creator.

Your gift back to the Creator is what you do with your life,” – Billy Mills

 

 

More Happy Birthday Quotes and Wishes

Hearts are always mentioned with birthdays:

27.) “Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty –

They merely move it from their faces into their hearts,” – Martin Buxbaum

Birthday Quotes To Help Celebrate

28.) “The heart of the giver makes the gift dear and precious,” – Martin Luther
Some U.S. Presidents have made some birthday quotes:

 

29.) “Be sure you put your feet in the right place,
then stand firm,” – Lincoln

 

30.) “Whatever you are, be a good one.” – Lincoln

 

31.) “Let us seek the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past.

Let us accept our own responsibility for the future,” – Kennedy

 

Words of wisdom for aging from Confucius:

32.) “Study the past if you would define the future!”

 

33.) “It doesn’t matter how slowly you go, so long as you don’t stop.”

 

34.) “Choose a job you love.You will never have to work a day in your life.”

 

35.) “The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions.”

Birthday Quotes To Help Celebrate

As we grow older, may we remember these wise quotes:

35.) “It is not the strongest of the species that survive
But the one most responsive to change,” – Darwin

 

36.) “It’s the mark of an educated mind to be able to
entertain a thought without accepting it,” – Aristotle

 

37.) “Life is like riding a bicycle.
To keep your balance you must keep moving,” – Einstein

 

38.) “Obstacles are those frightful things you see
when you take your eyes off the goal,” – Henry Ford

39.) “Don’t celebrate how old you are,
celebrate the years you survived.” – Touaxia Vang

 

40.) “Don’t anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen,” – Ben Franklin

 

41.) “Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” – C.S. Lewis

42.) “Count your age by friends, not years, your life by smiles, not tears.” – John Lennon

43.) “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” – Tolkien

Birthday Quotes To Help Celebrate

 

So, as we all age – day by day, and as I pray I get to reach 70 in a couple of years, I often repeat this quote:

44.) “I don’t mind getting older; it’s a privilege denied to so many!” ― Chris Geiger, ‘The Cancer Survivors Club’
