More birthday wisdom...
You're only as old as you remember.
But seriously, looking 50 is great, if you're 60 - Joan Rivers.
And remember, after 30 a body has a mind of its own - Bette Midler
Looking fifty is great--if you're sixty.
Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, but it's up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.
Looking fifty is great--if you're sixty.
The man who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
Everyone over 50 should be issued every week with a wet fish in a plastic bag by the Post Office so that, whenever you see someone young and happy, you can hit them as hard as you can across the face.

Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.
Jean Paul Richter
Men are like wine: some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.
Pope John XXIII
All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.
And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip.
The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
Believing hear, what you deserve to hear:
Your birthday as my own to me is dear...
But yours gives most; for mine did only lend
Me to the world; yours gave to me a friend.
Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.
Every ten years a man should give himself a good kick in the pants.
First you forget names; then you forget faces; then you forget to zip up your fly; and then you forget to unzip your fly.
A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age.
A well adjusted woman is one who not only knows what she wants for her birthday, but even knows what she's going to exchange it for.
Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year: The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again.
Menachem Mendel Schneerson
No wise man ever wished to be younger.
Old age: A great sense of calm and freedom. When the passions have relaxed their hold, you may have escaped, not from one master but from many.
Live as if your were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
Here's a birthday spanking,
Sent you on a card,
One, Two, Three,
Put them right on hard,
Four, Five, Six
One to live on, one to grow on,
One to make you fat…
I still have a full deck; I just shuffle slower now.
Middle age is having a choice between two temptations and choosing the one that’ll get you home earlier.
Inflation is when you pay fifteen dollars for the ten-dollar haircut you used to get for five dollars when you had hair.
Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what happened.
It takes a long time to grow young.
Just remember, once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed.
Life is a moderately good play with a badly written third act.
May you live to be 100 and may the last voice you hear be mine.
Middle age is having a choice between two temptations and choosing the one that'll get you home earlier.
Middle age is the time when a man is always thinking that in a week or two he will feel as good as ever.
Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle.
Age is something that doesn’t matter, unless you are a cheese.
Old age is not so bad when you consider the alternatives.
You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.
One to-day is worth two to-morrows.
The really frightening thing about middle age is that you know you'll grow out of it.
The older the fiddler, the sweeter the tune.
Pope Paul VI
The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
There is still no cure for the common birthday.
They say that age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping it from creeping down into your body.
Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent that is to triumph over old age.
Thomas B. Aldrich
To know how to grow old is the master work of wisdom, and one of the most difficult chapters in the great art of living.
Henri Frederic Amiel
We know we're getting old when the only thing we want for our birthday is not to be reminded of it.
Whatever with the past has gone, The best is always yet to come.
When I have a birthday I take the day off. But when my wife has a birthday, she takes a year or two off.
When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not; but my faculties are decaying now and soon I shall be so I cannot remember any but the things that never happened. It is sad to go to pieces like this but we all have to do it.
Wisdom doesn't necessarily come with age. Sometimes age just shows up all by itself.
Just remember, once you’re over the hill you begin to pick up speed.
Birthdays are nature’s way of telling us to eat more cake.
We are always the same age inside.
The heyday of woman's life is the shady side of fifty.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Make hay while the sun shines.
