The best way to remember your wife's birthday is to forget it once.
E. Joseph Cossman
My biggest hero, Gregory Peck, was my birthday present on April 14, 1973. I just sat and stared at him.
My mother asked me what I wanted for my birthday, so I said I wanted to read poetry with her.
I wanted to buy a candle holder, but the store didn't have one. So I got a cake.
I think, at a child's birth, if a mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift should be curiosity.

To me - old age is always ten years older than I am.
I get uncomfortable when people give me presents and watch me open them. I don't have birthday parties, because the idea of a group of people singing and looking at me while I'm blowing out candles gives me hives.
If you can give your child only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
There is still no cure for the common birthday.
When someone asks if you'd like cake or pie, why not say you want cake and pie?
I like to go to anybody else's birthday, and if I'm invited I'm a good guest. But I never celebrate my birthdays. I really don't care.
I'm not going to be caught around here for any fool celebration. To hell with birthdays!

Like many women my age, I am 28 years old.
I am a big popcorn fanatic. I love popcorn. In fact one year for my birthday, my husband bought me one of those big popcorn machines like they have in movie theaters.
This is a wonderful way to celebrate an 80th birthday... I wanted to be 65 again, but they wouldn't let me - Homeland Security.
To my surprise, my 70s are nicer than my 60s and my 60s than my 50s, and I wouldn't wish my teens and 20s on my enemies.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
