Don't just count your years, make your years count.
It is lovely, when I forget all birthdays, including my own, to find that somebody remembers me.
For me, the end of childhood came when the number of candles on my birthday cake no longer reflected my age, around 19 or 20. From then on, each candle came to represent an entire decade.
There are two great days in a person's life - the day we are born and the day we discover why.
Like many women my age, I am 28 years old.
Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.
Love the giver more than the gift.
The way I see it, you should live everyday like its your birthday.
The worst part about celebrating another birthday is the shock that you're only as well as you are.
How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
A gift, with a kind countenance, is a double present.
There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents, and only one for birthday presents, you know.
I wanted to buy a candle holder, but the store didn't have one. So I got a cake.
You know you're getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.
God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
If you look over the years, the styles have changed - the clothes, the hair, the production, the approach to the songs. The icing to the cake has changed flavors. But if you really look at the cake itself, it's really the same.
When I was little I thought, isn't it nice that everybody celebrates on my birthday? Because it's July 4th.
The reason I met my husband was because I remembered a friend's birthday. The moral of the story is: Remember people's birthdays.
On every birthday, I ask my wife, 'What would you like this year?' and her instant reply is, 'Diamonds! Diamonds! Diamonds!' I'm always living in hope that one day she'll say she just wants me!
I love the big fresh starts, the clean slates like birthdays and new years, but I also really like the idea that we can get up every morning and start over.
I'm not materialistic. I believe in presents from the heart, like a drawing that a child does.
Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.
Cherish all your happy moments; they make a fine cushion for old age.
The best way to remember your wife's birthday is to forget it once.
E. Joseph Cossman
For my birthday my husband learned to cook and is cooking one day a week for me. But he only likes to do fancy dishes. So we end up with weird, obscure things in the refrigerator.
To give somebody your time is the biggest gift you can give.
If I could be doing anything, I'd be laying on the floor in my birthday suit eating junk food and watching something dumb on TV.
When someone asks if you'd like cake or pie, why not say you want cake and pie?
A birthday is just another day where you go to work and people give you love. Age is just a state of mind, and you are as old as you think you are. You have to count your blessings and be happy.
With my wife I don't get no respect. I made a toast on her birthday to 'the best woman a man ever had.' The waiter joined me.
Success is like reaching an important birthday and finding you're exactly the same.
A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age.
I have an extensive library - every birthday when I was a kid my parents would ask what movie or book I wanted, so I have built up a big collection over the years.
