Happy Birthday to Me!

“With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.”
William Shakespeare

But I’m not sure going back to babyhood would be better

“Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen.”

**Mark Twain

Stop and Say Hello

Do You Smile at An Elderly Person Every Day? You Should. One day that will be you.**DB

A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture.
**Abraham Heschel


Make Up Your Mind

It’s paradoxical, that the idea of living a long life appeals to everyone, but the idea of getting old doesn’t appeal to anyone.

**Andy Rooney

Time Moves On

Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.

**Dion Boucicault

But Within Every Myth is a Truth. . .

“Legends are lies that have attained the dignity of age.”

**Henry Louis Mencken

Peak Age

“Thirty-five is a very attractive age. London society is full of women of the very highest birth who have, of their own free choice, remained thirty-five for years.”

**Importance of Being Earnest

Second Chances

“Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.”

Sammy Hagar

On that note: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY MOM! ❤  She’s the one who hooked me on books/quotes and she still reads all my posts, so wish her a great day 😛

Shadows of Laughter or Frowns?

“Time flies over us, but leaves it shadow behind.”
