Looking for inspirational birthday quotes?
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.
Since first reading Dr. Seuss, my favorite birthday quote has been:

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.”

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:

give ourselves the gift of living well,” – Voltaire
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:

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

|Man's main task in life is to give birth to himself, to become what he potentially is. The most important product of his effort is his own personality. |
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.
Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting; The soul that rises with us, our life's star, Hath had elsewhere its setting, And cometh from afar; Not in entire forgetfulness, And not in utter nakedness, But trailing clouds of glory do we come from God, who is our home.
Real birthdays are not annual affairs. Real birthdays are the days when we have a new birth.
In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.
Try to keep your soul young and quivering right up to old age.
Keep true to the dream of thy youth.
Friedrich Von Schiller
If you want to be happy, be.
Henry David Thorreau
One of the signs of passing youth is the birth of a sense of fellowship with other human beings as we take our place among them.
There was a star danced, and under that was I born.
Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.
James M. Barrie
There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.
Every human being on this earth is born with a tragedy, and it isn't original sin. He's born with the tragedy that he has to grow up...a lot of people don't have the courage to do it.
Most of us can remember a time when a birthday - especially if it was one's own brightened the world as if a second sun has risen.
Whatever with the past has gone, the best is always yet to come.
PLeas'd to look forward, pleas'd to look behind, And count each birthday with a grateful mind.
May you live all the days of your life.
Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.
Jean Paul Richter
... the birthday of my life,
Is come, my love is come to me.
Christina Georgina Rossetti
From our birthday, until we die, Is but the winking of an eye.
William Butler Yeats
Sugar in the gourd and honey in the horn, I never was so happy since the hour I was born.
The best birthdays of all are those that haven't arrived yet.
Sing a song of Birthdays
Full of fun and cheer
And may you keep on having them
For many a happy year.
It is lovely, when I forget all birthdays, including my own, to find that somebody remembers me.
There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get 'un-birthday' presents ... and only one for birthday presents, you know.
Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words.
The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune.
The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.
It is utterly false and cruelly arbitrary to put all the play and learning into childhood, all the work into middle age, and all the regrets into old age.
