that come straight from the heart can alter someone's life. Don't just send ordinary birthday wishes to your loved ones. They deserve more. Your birthday wishes can become messages of love
, inspiration, and kindness.
- Susan B Anthony
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.
- Jim Eason
If you want to look young and thin, hang around old fat people.
- Jane Wagner
All my life, I always wanted to be somebody. Now I see that I should have been more specific.
- Henry David Thoreau
If you want to be happy, be.
- Soren Kierkegaard
If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye, which ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never.
The more candles, the bigger the wish.
- John Burroughs
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
- Thomas Moore
My Birthday! What a difference sound
That word had in my youthful ears,
And how each time the day comes round,
Less and less white its mark appears.
- Margaret Fuller
Very early, I knew that the only object in life was to grow.
- John Heywood
Would ye both eat your cake and have your cake?
- Thomas Hood
I remember, I remember
The roses, red and white,
The violets, and the lily-cups,
Those flowers made of light!
The lilacs, where the robin built,
And where my brother set
The laburnum on his birthday,
The tree is living yet.
