Deep Insights into Age and More Birthday Sayings

Funny clown puppet.

Age is a funny thing!

Is age a number?

Is age being or getting old?

Is age approaching death?

People clearly attribute different values and beliefs to age.

To some people the concept of age matters a lot. To other people it matters less. And to some very few people age doesn't matter at all.

In fact, for these few people the concept of age is of very little meaning. They don't measure themselves in terms of age, and they always forget how old they are as they in no way identify with age.

And guess what?

Because they do not identify with the limiting beliefs that are often associated with a certain age, they seem ageless!

Or in other words, they seem to stay younger for longer!

Interesting isn't it!

Here are some few more happy birthday sayings and funny age quotes:

Aging seems to be the only available way to live a long life.
~ Daniel Francois Esprit Auber ~

We know we're getting old when the only thing that we want for our birthday is not to be reminded of it.
~ Happy Birthday Messages ~

Middle age is when your age starts to show around the middle.
~ Bob Hope ~

All my life, I wanted to be somebody. Now I see that I should have been more specific.
~ Jane Wagner ~

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
~ Groucho Marx ~

Why is a birthday cake the only food you can blow on and spit on, and everybody still rushes to get a piece?
~ Bobby Kelton ~

A man of sixty has spent twenty years in bed, and over three years eating.
~ Arnold Bennett ~

The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted thirty years of his life.
~ Muhammad Ali ~

Here are some happy birthday sayings and phrases from wise men and women who learned through their years the real meaning of birthdays:

Few women admit their age. Few men act theirs.
~ Funny Birthday Sayings. ~

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 ~

At 20 years of age, the will reigns; at 30, the wit; and at 40, the judgment.
~ Benjamin Franklin ~

Live as long as you may. The first 20 years are the longest half of your life.
~ Robert Southey ~

The only time that you really live fully is from 30 to 60. The young are slaves to dreams; the old servants to regrets. Only the middle aged have all their five senses in the keeping of their wits.
~ Hervey Allen ~

One's 30th birthday and one's 60th are days that press their message home with iron hand. With his 70th milestone past, a man feels that his work is done, and dim voices call to him from across the Unseen. His work is done, and so illy, compared with what he had wished and expected! But the impressions made upon his heart by the day are no deeper than those his 30th birthday inspires. At thirty, youth, with all it palliates and excuses, is gone forever. The time for mere fooling is past; the young avoid you, or else look up to you and tempt you to grow reminiscent. You are a man and must give an account of yourself.
~ Elbert Hubbard ~

Thirty: the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, and thinning briefcase of enthusiasm, and thinning hair.
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald ~

When I passed 40, I dropped pretense, because men like women who have got some sense.
~ Maya Angelou ~

If life really begins on your 40th birthday, it's because that's when women finally get it: the guts to take back their lives.
~ Laura Randolph ~

To think, when one is no longer young, when one is not yet old, that one is no longer young, that one is not yet old, that is perhaps something.
~ Samuel Beckett ~

What start this! When sixty years have spread
Their grey experience o'er thy hoary head
Is this the all observing age could gain?
Or hast thou known the world so long in vain?

~ John Dryden ~

A simple celebration, a gathering of friends; here is wishing you great happiness, a joy that never ends.
~ Happy Birthday Saying ~

Just because you are one year older doesn't mean that you are one year closer to the grave.
~ Andrew Peloquin ~

Count your life by your smiles, not by your tears. Count your age by your friends, not by your years.
~ Happy Birthday Phrases ~
