By Jove It’s My Birthday–Beth Trissel


And I love a good quote, so here are a few suitable selections for my special day. Feel free to add some I may have missed.

“When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it happened or not.” – Mark Twain

“We turn not older with years, but newer every day.” Emily Dickinson

We are always the same age inside.
Gertrude Stein

It takes a long time to become young.
Pablo Picasso

Grow old along with me!
The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made.
Robert Browning

“Inside every older person is a younger person – wondering what the hell happened.” – Cora Harvey Armstrong

The years between fifty and seventy are the hardest. You are always being asked to do things, and yet you are not decrepit enough to turn them down.
T.S. Eliot

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

“A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman’s birthday but never remembers her age.” ~Robert Frost

“To me, fair friend, you never can be old,
For as you were when first your eye I eye’d,
Such seems your beauty still.”
~ William Shakespeare

“Just when you think no one has taken any notice of your birthday, here come two friends with an empty honey pot and a broken balloon.”~Eeyore’s Gloomy Little Instruction Book

“After all, what are birthdays? Here today and gone tomorrow.”

Eeyore from The House at Pooh Corner by A. A. Milne

“Eeyore,” said Owl, “Christopher Robin is giving a party.””Very interesting,” said Eeyore. “I suppose they will be sending me down the odd bits which got trodden on. Kind and Thoughtful. Not at all, don’t mention it.”
