At my age flowers scare me.
I was forced to live far beyond my years when just a child, now I have reversed the order and I intend to remain young indefinitely.
For me, the end of childhood came when the number of candles on my birthday cake no longer reflected my age, around 19 or 20. From then on, each candle came to represent an entire decade.
It is lovely, when I forget all birthdays, including my own, to find that somebody remembers me.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Handmade presents are scary because they reveal that you have too much free time.
For my birthday this year, my girlfriends - who knew I'd just inherited my dad's turntable - gave me a carton of albums like 'Blue Kentucky Girl,' by Emmylou Harris, and 'Off the Wall,' by Michael Jackson. It's all stuff we grew up with. I mean, you can't have a music collection without Prince's 'Purple Rain' - it just can't be done!
I have an extensive library - every birthday when I was a kid my parents would ask what movie or book I wanted, so I have built up a big collection over the years.
I jumped out of an airplane on my 34th birthday because I promised myself I would. I have an interest in confronting my fears.
We all have special numbers in our lives, and 4 is that for me. It's the day I was born. My mother's birthday, and a lot of my friends' birthdays, are on the fourth; April 4 is my wedding date.
At her birthday, my seven-year-old daughter will say that she wants these big cakes and certain expensive toys as presents, and I can't say no to her. It would just break my heart. But when I was little, for birthdays we just played outside and we were happy if we got any cake.
If every year is a marble, how many marbles do you have left? How many sunrises, how many opportunities to rise to the full stature of your being?
Most of us can remember a time when a birthday - especially if it was one's own - brightened the world as if a second sun has risen.
Robert Staughton Lynd
For my birthday my husband learned to cook and is cooking one day a week for me. But he only likes to do fancy dishes. So we end up with weird, obscure things in the refrigerator.
I binge when I'm happy. When everything is going really well, every day is like I'm at a birthday party.
I had a birthday one night on a farm we were shooting on. I walked into the tent, and there were 150 people waiting for me, all wearing masks of my face.
We'll take the cake with the red cherry on top.
Navjot Singh Sidhu
The worst part about celebrating another birthday is the shock that you're only as well as you are.
I like to give people novels I think they would like, on no particular occasion - just when we're in a bookstore together. I like to receive reference books on my birthday.
I wanted to buy a candle holder, but the store didn't have one. So I got a cake.
You know you're getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.
We have to be able to grow up. Our wrinkles are our medals of the passage of life. They are what we have been through and who we want to be.
My policy on cake is pro having it and pro eating it.
I'm not materialistic. I believe in presents from the heart, like a drawing that a child does.
People give one another things that can't be gift wrapped.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
