50 Birthday Quotes for Your Mother, Father, Son and Daughter

When someone near and dear to your heart turns another year older, you’ll want to do everything you can to make their day extra memorable. Whether you’re throwing a birthday party, a cocktail party or planning a dinner at the honoree’s favorite restaurant, it’s tradition to give the guest of honor a Happy Birthday card. As if picking out a card wasn’t tough enough, on top of that you’ll need to craft a happy birthday message too.

When you sit down with a blank greeting card in front of you, don’t be surprised if you can’t seem to put the pen to paper. Many of us get a case of writers block when we sit down to write a birthday card greeting, especially to the people we love the most. Sure, the birthday honoree knows just how much you love and appreciate him or her but, it doesn’t hurt to remind them on their day.

The following birthday quotes will make for the nicest addition to your birthday cards for family and friends. Jump to any relevant section below:

60 Birthday Quotes To Celebrate Life, Age and Friendships

wise birthday wishes

 

Let us never know what old age is. Let us know the happiness time brings, not count the years. – Ausonius

Isn’t that one of the most inspiring Birthday Quotes ever? Doesn’t it also bring back fond memories?

Remember that feeling you got as a kid the day before your birthday; counting down the hours until finally, your big day came. Everyone was nice to you, they gave you presents with hand written greetings, left you thoughtful messages; and if you were lucky, you got to decide where to have your birthday party (lazer tag!). The spotlight was on just you for a full 24 hours, and it was awesome.

Then somewhere along the lines, your birthday became less about fun and more about trying not to cry all over your birthday cake. You feel older (and not necessarily wiser), and can’t help looking back at the things you just can’t do anymore like lazer tag. It sounds depressing because, well, it is.

But it doesn’t have to be. You just need some cheering up.

If you’re sitting there struggling to think of something clever, or you’re looking for some birthday wishes to cheer you up, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re sending an e-mail, text, signing a birthday card, or leaving a voicemail, this collection is filled with as many ways to say happy birthday as possible.

So without further ado, here are the 30 birthday wishes to help put the ‘awesome’ back into that special day for you or someone you love.

25 Quotes About Birthdays to Help Write a Birthday Card

wise birthday wishes

We all appreciate birthdays. Whether they’re our own, or someone else’s, they offer us an opportunity to focus our attention on the individual and celebrate their achievements, successes and happiness. They also offer a new start – our own personal New Year – for the year ahead.

Birthdays are an important ritual, particularly when many of us can feel undervalued or overlooked in a complex and competitive world. As they come around every year, it can sometimes be hard to express our appreciation in a heartfelt and original way.

That’s why we may want to write a well thought out birthday card. One that is precise and profound, and truly lets the person we are celebrating understand how we feel about them.

However, it’s not always easy to come up with the appropriate message. Saying the right thing, at the right time, is dependent on the personality of our loved one, what they are going through in their life at that time, and our particular relationship with them.

Do we give them some food for thought about aging? Do we offer them some profound life advice? Or do we go for something laid-back and funny?

The following examples will help you find the perfect thing to say, so you can express a message of love, care, and optimism, and help someone celebrate their birthday with pride, passion, and purpose.

So without further ado;

Here are 25 quotes about birthdays to help write a birthday card.

On Aging

We live in a culture that is so focused on staying young forever, that it instills a certain degree of fear and anxiety about the aging process. What we should be doing instead, is celebrating the wisdom that comes with age. The following quotes can help your loved one see that aging is something to enjoy, not something to worry about!

“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” – Mark Twain

“If you are pining for youth I think it produces a stereotypical old man because you only live in memory, you live in a place that doesn’t exist. Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been.” – David Bowie

“We live in a youth-obsessed culture that is constantly trying to tell us that if we are not young, and we’re not glowing, and we’re not hot, that we don’t matter. I refuse to let a system or a culture or a distorted view of reality tell me that I don’t matter. I know that only by owning who and what you are can you start to step into the fullness of life. Every year should be teaching us all something valuable. Whether you get the lesson is really up to you.” – Oprah Winfrey

“Youth is happy because it has the ability to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old. – Franz Kafka

“Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young.” – Dorothy Canfield Fisher

“There are six myths about old age: 1. That it’s a disease, a disaster. 2. That we are mindless. 3. That we are sexless. 4. That we are useless. 5. That we are powerless. 6. That we are all alike.” – Maggie Kuhn

“One of the best parts of growing older? You can flirt all you like since you’ve become harmless.” – Liz Smith

“We have to be able to grow up. Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life. They are what we have been through and who we want to be.” – Lauren Hutton

“Wrinkles should merely indicate where the smiles have been.” – Mark Twain

Life advice

Like any annual event, a birthday is an annual milestone that offers us the time and space to reflect on our lives and how far we’ve come. You may want to write a birthday card that offers some life advice to the birthday boy or girl, so they can look back at their life with pride and look forward with a sense of hope and optimism.

“A birth-date is a reminder to celebrate the life as well as to update the life.” – Amit Kalantri

“A friend like you is more priceless than the most beautiful diamond. You are not only strong and wise, but kind and thoughtful as well. Your birthday is the perfect opportunity to show you how much I care, and how grateful I am to have you in my life.” – Anonymous

“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” – Oprah Winfrey

“A birthday is just another day where you go to work and people give you love. Age is just a state of mind, and you are as old as you think you are. You have to count your blessing and be happy.” – Abhishek Bachchan
