Birthdays are always special whether you celebrate it with family, friends, and / or people who love you. And it's obvious that when someone's birthday is nearing, their friends and / or family may plan on hosting a birthday party. Perhaps you're the one who is in charge of sending the birthday invitations out, arranging for the food, beverages, and entertainment, and decorating the entire venue properly; you even have a gift purchased, waiting to be presented at the party. However, a gift, on its own, can't possibly convey what your feelings are for that person. Obviously, if you're going to be giving a special, thoughtful gift, you do wish to write at least something more than 'Happy Birthday!!' on the card; am I right?

It's not that writing in a card is some kind of an obligation, but a good practice. Thinking of heartfelt quotes or phrases for the people you love and adore can be tough at times. Which is why, we have put together some wonderful phrases and quotes you can use when an opportunity arises.

Quotes for the People You Love

Every time I wish to write a warm (sometimes silly) birthday card saying, I can't help but take help from my mom. She comes with the best quotes for birthdays. But now, since I'm older and can write my own messages in a card, she doesn't help me all that much. Who knows, you got booted off the train as well and are now searching for inspiring words to write. So, for those who aren't able to find what to write in a birthday card, here are some amazing birthday quotes for your mom, dad, and friends.

Quotes for Mom
When you need the right words, especially your mom, then you can't be too funny or easygoing with them. I guess I don't have to tell you that you should be warm, sweet, and gentle with your birthday wishes; it's sort of understood, right? So here are some sayings to make her feel extra special for the day.

Mom, you give me hope when my life is low.
You are true and honest, God's precious gift.
Happy Birthday Mom!

Your birthday... a time for warm thoughts
and fond memories,
for expressing the feelings and words
that often go unspoken,
for letting you the special person
in my life know that you are loved
and appreciated - always.
