Every man who has lived for fifty years has buried a whole world or even two; he has grown used to its disappearance and accustomed to the new scenery of another act: but suddenly the names and faces of a time long dead appear more and more often on his way, calling up series of shades and pictures kept somewhere, "just in case," in the endless catacombs of the memory, making him smile or sigh, and sometimes almost weep.
~ Alexander Herzen ~

The first birthday poem below is rhyming, uplifting and funny, the second birthday poem is also rhyming while the humor is a lot more subdued, and the last birthday poem in this batch is not as such funny or witty but tries to embody an ambiguous mood of getting older:

Funny 50th birthday quotes: guy in white tux dancing. Goodness me are you really 50?
And yet you're still really quite nifty.
Suppose now you'll have to be
Staid and refined, not unlike me
So when, if ever, we go out downtown
Who'll get the job of playing the clown?
I guess not us, we'll be toeing the line.
We'll leave that to the youngsters, still 49.

~ Funny Birthday Quotes ~

To have reached that stage
When people who look old
Who are only my age

~ Richard Armour ~

I like spring, but it is too young.
I like summer, but it is too proud.
So I like best of all autumn, because its tone is mellower, its colors are richer, and it is tinged with a little sorrow. Its golden richness speaks not of the innocence of spring, nor the power of summer, but of the mellowness and kindly wisdom of approaching age. It knows the limitations of life and its content.

~ Lin YĆ¼-tang ~

Funny Birthday Sayings That Inspires the Birthday Child to Take Things Less Seriously

One of the great things about getting older is the accumulating sensation of life's perspective broadening all the time.

When getting older you stop paying that much attention to insignificant details and start measuring things, choices and possibilities in terms of their long term potential.

This 'bigger' perspective on life also means taking many things less serious as you realize they actually don't really matter that much. And when you realize their insignificance, you can laugh about it and yourself.

Here are some funny 50th birthday sayings and quotes that via the help of 'the bigger perspective' will help the birthday child have a good laugh at his or her own situation and age:

There are numerous advantages to being fifty. Just ask any 80 year old.
~ Funny 50th Birthday Sayings ~

If you cannot do great things at 50, do small things in a great way.
~ Funny Birthday Phrases ~

50! Now is the time to make your mark on the world - explore the Antarctic or become an astronaut. Make up your mind to take on exciting new challenges - right after your nap.
~ Funny 50th Birthday Sayings ~

Fifty is the age when you look back and smile at what you have achieved, frown at those missed opportunities, and release a slight chuckle at those moments.
~ Funny Birthday Phrases ~

I'm aiming by the time I'm 50 to stop being an adolescent.

The following funny 50th birthday quotes are perfect to remind your friend or loved on why the next 50 years are going to be amazing, and the funny birthday sayings and funny birthday phases below serve to adjust the right outlook on life:

~ Louis Kronenberger ~

Birthday balloon with the number 50 written on it.

Whether 50 or 15, there is in every human being's heart the lure of wonder, the unfailing childlike appetite of what's next, and the joy in the game of living. In the center of your heart and my heart there is a wireless station; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer, courage, and power from men and from the infinite, so long you are young.
~ Samuel Ullman ~

Maturity is the ability to speak, think, and act your feelings within the bounds of dignity. The measure of your maturity is how spiritual you become during the midst of your frustrations.
~ Funny Birthday Phrases ~

Old age, calm, expanded, broad with the haughty breadth of the universe, old age flowing free with the delicious nearby freedom of death.
~ Walt Whitman ~

As you can see, the 51st year of life is something to be anticipated, looked forward to, and anxiously coveted.

The next year of the birthday child's life is something that should be a time of joy and excitement. It's a new year of learning and growing, and each year that will pass is another year in which the stores of experience have grown.

In this new year, encourage the birthday child to tap into those stores of experience to put to good use the abundance of wisdom that has been accumulated over the last half century.

Happy 50th Birthday from all of us here at, and may this be the best year yet.
