Message Guy Tip #1:
When you should choose birthday wishes

Choosing birthday wishes over quotes or poems comes down to one reason. And it's a very good reason to go this route. What is it?

For me, your birthday is not the only time to celebrate you. If I had my way, every day would be a celebration in your honor. And what a great celebration it would be. Happy birthday!

Life is short...and birthdays are even shorter. Blow out your candles and eat as much birthday cake as you want. Plus, don't wait until you get home to open your gifts — open them right now.  Have a truly special day. 

Things change but you've managed to stay the same all these years. You're still the same wonderful person you've always been. Happy birthday!

Message Guy Tip #2:
When you should select birthday quotes

Choosing birthday quotes over wishes or poems is something to consider when you find yourself in a certain situation. This situation pretty much is solved when you go the quote route. What is this situation? Read more ►

This is how we should all look at getting older...

"Old age, believe me, is a good and pleasant thing. It is true you are gently shouldered off the stage, but then you are given such a comfortable front stall as spectator."


Enjoy the view. You've earned it! Happy birthday!

You are my single best friend in the world...

"A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world."

Leo Buscaglia

Happy birthday, my dearest friend!

These are words to celebrate your birthday by...

"Pick the day. Enjoy it — to the hilt. Take the day as it comes, people as they come. The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present — and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future."

~ Audrey Hepburn

In other words, enjoy your special day — it only comes once a year. Happy birthday!


To personalize the birthday quotes on my site for the people you love (and for you), I've written sample birthday wishes to add before and after them. What a personal combo!

Here's how to have a truly happy birthday...

"The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it."

Richard Bach

Enjoy your special day, as if you were the king of the world.

Wherever you go on your birthday, be happy, don't worry!

"From there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere."

Dr. Seuss

Find joy wherever you can. Happy birthday!

As you grow older, remember these words...

"To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funny bone."

Reba McEntire

I'm sure you'll be a great success your whole life. Happy birthday!


Message Guy Tip #3:
Why you should add birthday wishes to birthday quotes

You ABSOLUTELY NEED to add personal birthday wishes before and after famous birthday quotes! Why? Put simply: a quote without a birthday wish is like a hamburger without a bun. Put not as simply...

There's no such thing as age...

"There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age."

~ Sophia Loren

Happy birthday! Enjoy your very own fountain of youth.

Age is a state of mind.

"You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old."

 ~ George Burns

Happy birthday! May you never "get old" in spirit.

Here's the secret to staying young.

"The trick is growing up without growing old."

~ Casey Stengel

May you grow up to be young.

Message Guy Tip #4:
When you should pick birthday poems

Why should you use birthday poems over wishes or quotes? Sometimes, a poem is a better way to go when you have a certain tone in mind. What is this tone? Read more ►

By Message Guy

Getting older is not so bad,
Nor is a wrinkle or two,
Slowing down is relaxing,
Nothing's wrong with you.

You look simply amazing,
Nobody can call you gruff,
You're a hero to us all,
You have the right stuff.

Today is your special day,
It just came out of the blue,
May you always be so blessed,
A very happy birthday to you.

Let's get out the balloons,
Let's bring out the cake,
Let's blow out the candles,
Let's really celebrate.

You deserve to be happy,
You have it coming your way,
You deserve to be loved,
Since it's your special day.

Happy birthday!

Birthday Toasts

Message Guy Tip #5:
When you should choose birthday toasts over speeches

There's a very good time to choose short and sweet birthday toasts over long and deeper ones. When?

If our journey through life is more important than our ultimate destination, I'm glad I had the chance to take to the road with you and see the sights. Happy birthday to the best traveler this world has ever known.

I would like to paraphrase what John Barrymore, a great actor of stage and screen, once said, "Joy frequently comes to you through a door you long forgot you ever left open." You have left so many doors open — so much so you should have never-ending moments of joy day after day. May today bring you the most joy. Happy birthday.

For your toast, I thought I'd do a nice rhyme. Yet when I sat down to write it, I ran out of time.  So I thought I'd quit and just wish you "Happy Birthday." But I could not keep my guilt at bay. I tried again and these very words broke through: "You're finer than the finest this world has to offer. Here's to you."


Birthday toasts are the perfect birthday messages for your repertoire of tributes — when you have to say a few words at the birthday party or dinner for somebody special.

There are so many ways, in so many languages, to say what you've taught me about love. But the French say it best: "Aimer, ce n'est pas se regarder l'un l'autre, c'est regarder ensemble dans la même direction." (which means "Love doesn't mean gazing at each other, but looking, together, in the same direction." ) So I must love you in the truest sense. Happy birthday!

Here's to a person who can inspire anyone to believe in themselves, love themselves and, ultimately, change their life for the better...all with a good ear, true words of wisdom and a heart of gold. That person is my best friend and my hero. You. Happy birthday!

Wherever you go, you always come bearing gifts. You give hope. You give strength. You give love. You are one of a kind...truly a gift. On behalf of everyone here, I would like to raise my glass and offer a toast: Thank you for your guidance, your wisdom and your love. Happy birthday!
