A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun.
Enjoy the trip. ~Author Unknown~
You are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely.
~Ogden Nash ~
Age is a high price to pay for maturity.
They say that age is all in your mind.
The trick is keeping it from creeping down into your body.
Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life
are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations,
the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are
less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced,
stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave.
Our lives are measured by these.
~Susan B. Anthony~
Blessed is the person who is too busy to worry in the daytime
and too sleepy to worry at night.
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~
Thanks to modern medical advances such as antibiotics,
nasal spray, and Diet Coke, it has become routine for people
in the civilized world to pass the age of 40,
sometimes more than once.
I'm sixty years of age. That's 16 Celsius.
You're not 40, you're eighteen with 22 years experience.
A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday
but never remembers her age.
Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people
who have the most live the longest.
