Birthday Quotes

by 40th Birthday Sayings

Birthday quotes are the best choice.

They are the simplest way to add meaningful words to a card especially when you cannot think of anything original.  They can also come in handy for times when you need to give a birthday card, but you don’t know the person very well.  It’s a classic choice and a wonderful add-on inside the Happy Birthday card.  Quotes are also an excellent choice to personalize a birthday invitation.  Check out the page we made to highlight the different types of invitations you can choose or create for a birthday party.

Choosing a quote for someone you do know well can also can be the perfect touch especially when you match the verse to the card or match the verse to their personality.  You simply cannot lose by choosing a quote.

Here are some favorites.
