Here's one from Helen Rowland... “Life begins at 40 - but so do fallen arches, rheumatism, faulty eyesight, and the tendency to tell a story to the same person, three or four times.”

Here is how I feel about it...I agree with Victor Hugo when he said, "Forty is the old age of youth; fifty is the youth of old age.”

Benjamin Franklin said,“At 20 years of age the will reigns; at 30 the wit; at 40 the judgement.” Do you agree with him?

I have to chuckle when I hear this quote from Voltaire. “What most persons consider as virtue, after the age of 40 is simply a loss of energy”

And a last birthday quote from that red headed funny lady of I Love Lucy, Lucille Ball said, “The secret to staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.”

40th birthday quotes can add a punch line or a deep thought to your celebration speech. Write and say some nice things about the birthday person, because next time the roles might be reversed. It could be them giving a little speech about you! So be nice when you are choosing your 40th birthday cake design, your Over the Hill party theme and your birthday quote.
