Twenty One & Full of Fun

Why do we celebrate birthdays? Henri J. M. Nouwen has a very good reason you might agree with, "Celebrating a birthday is exalting life and being glad for it. On a birthday, we do not say: 'Thanks for what you did, or said, or accomplished.' No, we say: 'Thank you for being born and being among us.' Celebrating a birthday reminds us of the goodness of life."



1. Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.



2. Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.



4. And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.



6. Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty - they merely move it from their faces into their hearts.




8. We know we're getting old when the only thing we want for our birthday is not to be reminded of it.




9. No matter how you choose to see it, birthdays are a great opportunity to have a few laughs and make peace with getting older.




11. All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.




13. Your life is a gift from the Creator. Your gift back to the Creator is what you do with your life



16. When a man is tired of life on his 21st birthday it indicates that he is rather tired of something in himself.





18. There was a star danced, and under that was I born.




21. Finally 21, and legally able to do everything I've been doing since 15.




Being born was great for me,
Though I can’t recall the chore,
But every year I’m pleased to see,
That it’s me they all adore.


My mom and dad stay close to me;
They claim to know me well;
They’re proud to know a celebrity,
And me, I know they’re swell.


They celebrate, they laugh and sing,
And gifts on me they shower;
I must have done a wondrous thing,
My birthday cries, BABY POWER!







HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!! :)



PS: Thought of collecting 21 Birthday quotes so as to symbolize my birthday. But sad, me, Google threw tantrums in its search. Visitors are requested to pour in their gifts (either in the form of cash or cash exchangeable items) rather than wishing in my comments section :P



Thanks!! Keep Visiting!!
