60 Brilliant Birthday Messages, Wishes And Quotes

funny birthday wishes for 40 year old man


The number 4 signifies death or denotes something bad in some Asian countries. In Europe and the US, there are no similar prejudices to ordinary numerals; and we should say that it makes us happier than the Asians. The majority of the people live happily without expectations that the 40th line detects the end of the life; they just live up to the hilt. This is the age of a true wisdom, the youth, and, surprisingly, the energetic peak of the body! If you are 40, you should not worry about the years you have lived, but should think of the time you will live further! You have a lot of it and know what do you want, how you can get it, and how joyful it will be – to give effect to your intentions. Be happy and pass your 40th birthday even better than you celebrated all the previous ones!

Funny 40th Birthday Sayings

Religious, mystical and astrological biases make us think that we even should forget about the celebration of our 40th birthday. Why should we believe in these weird customs, if they are based on suggestions and stupid ideas? Just imagine your life that ends when you get forty. No birthday speeches, no cakes, no happy smiles, no alcohol, and friends; no parties and no laugh. To be honest, we even cannot understand, why someone supposed that it is dangerous to have a joyful party on a significant day. Forget about those idiots, sitting calmly in their moody houses and keep have fun for your bday!
