50th Birthday Quotes and Sayings - Humor and Inspiration

Are you looking for some fun, inspirational or humorous 50th birthday quotes and sayings?

Congratulations on your 50th! What a great age to be! Enjoy your celebrations, and enjoy too, the excitement of looking forward to the next fifty years.

The great thing about being fifty is that, from now on, you can pretty much do as you please - you been through it all, and can make choices that suit you and not everyone else. As Jim Carrey says, "50 years: here's a time when you have to separate yourself from what other people expect of you, and do what you love. Because, if you find yourself at 50 years old, and you aren't doing what you love, then what's the point".

How true this 50th birthday quote is - live your life to make yourself happy from now on. You've done your bit for society, and now it's your turn.

If it's the fact that your looks are fading, then take the wise advice from Coco Chanel, who believes that, "nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it's up to you to merit the face you have at fifty". Or, as Joan Rivers says, "looking fifty is great if you're sixty".

We all grow old, and our looks do fade with age, but do it gracefully, and think young, and the rest of your life will be just as great as the first fifty years. Be like Muhammed Ali, who firmly believed, "fifty years old, 212 fights, and I'm still pretty". What a great 50th birthday quote.

If being fifty really bothers you, then try looking at it in a different way. As Victor Hugo said, "forty is the old age of youth; fifty is the youth of old age. You're into the second phase of a fantastic life. You are at the beginning of your old age, almost like being a kid again, so enjoy it!

Also, just because you are fifty, doesn't mean that you have to stop living the way you always have. Dawn Wells put it in a nutshell when she said "just because a woman is over fifty does not mean she no longer has anything to offer. If anything, we have so much more to offer! We have lived life, we get better with age. I do my best to work now I'm in my sixties. Sure, I could retire; but what would I do? Play Bingo? I think not"! One of the more inspirational 50th birthday quotes, isn't this?

Agatha Christie said "I have enjoyed greatly the second blooming.. suddenly you find at the age of 50, say - that a whole new life has opened before you". The words of this 50th birthday quote are so wise from this great author, and more people over 50 should look at life this way. Being fifty is great and exciting. There are many years to look forward to - years that will be just as exciting, if not more so, than the years leading up to now.

As Dorothy L Sayers said, "Except ye become as little children, except you can wake on your fiftieth birthday with the same forward-looking excitement and interest in life that you enjoyed when you were five, 'ye cannot enter the kingdom of God'. One must not only die daily, but every day we must be born again". One of the more fantastic 50th birthday quotes indeed!
