Birthday is such a wonderful day in your life. It's loaded with gifts, surprises, wishes and blessings from your near ones. It's the time to celebrate with friends and loved ones. Your 50th birthday is all the more special, it's the age at which you are half-way to completing a century! To celebrate this birthday in a memorable way, here's something that may help; some fiftieth birthday sayings that can also be used in your party invitations or birthday cards.
♦ I'm not 50, I'm 49.95, plus tax.
♦ The only time you really live fully is from thirty to sixty. The young are slaves to dreams; the old, servants of regrets. Only the middle-aged have all their five senses in the keeping of their wits.
♦ Middle age is when you've met so many people that every new person you meet reminds you of someone else.
♦ Forty is the old age of youth; fifty is the youth of old age.
♦ 50 years: here's a time when you have to separate yourself from what other people expect of you, and do what you love. Because if you find yourself 50 years old and you aren't doing what you love, then what's the point?
♦ I think when the full horror of being fifty hits you, you should stay home and have a good cry.
♦ You take all of the experience and judgment of men over 50 out of the world and there wouldn't be enough left to run it.
♦ Looking fifty is great, if you're sixty.
♦ Happy 20th anniversary of your 30th Birthday.
♦ The years between fifty and seventy are the hardest. You are always being asked to do more, and you are not yet decrepit enough to turn them down.
♦ After a man is 50, you can fool him by saying he is smart, but you can't fool him by saying he's pretty.
♦ The man who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
♦ At age 50, everyone has the face he deserves.
♦ To know how to grow old is the masterwork of wisdom, and one of the most difficult chapters in the great art of living.
~Henri Frederic Amiel
♦ Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.
♦ I'm not interested in age. People who tell me their age are silly. You're as old as you feel.
~Henri Frederic Amiel
So forget about those wrinkles on your face. Just sit back and enjoy the autumn of your life. Hope these quotes keep you smiling (or laughing) for years to come.
