Choose clever birthday quotes by celebrities made cleverer and more personal by original birthday wishes (written by me) for the ones you love. You'll only find this great combo right here.
Why have I decided to add personal birthday wishes to the clever quotes on this page? Clever birthday sayings, on their own, are great for brainiacs but they lack the heartwarming side of birthday messages, which is key to making birthday boy or girl feel super special.
But the clever side of any quote matters too. The right pick for that special someone celebrating a birthday is a clever saying with a message that brings him or her meaning and purpose in life (it shouldn't just be a brain teaser).

Look forward to middle age...
"Middle age is youth without levity, and age without decay."
~ Doris Day
Embrace your middle age and the youth that comes with it. Happy birthday!
I once saw this happen in a Star Trek episode...
"Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach 18."
~ Mark Twain
You make it happen for real...just with your amazing attitude. Happy birthday!
This means we must keep moving forward in thought and action...
"As long as any adult thinks that he, like the parents and teachers of old, can become introspective, invoking his own youth to understand the youth before him, he is lost."
~ Margaret Mead
Good advice. The peace of mind we earn as we grow older is better than anything our youth can tell us. It's done great for you. Happy birthday!
You should always look at the big picture.
"The years teach much which the days never know."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
If you look forward with the right eyes, you'll quickly see how to live out your days in happiness! Happy birthday!
Once again, it can be said that age does not matter.
"Age is just a number. It's totally irrelevant, unless, of course, you happen to be a bottle of wine."
~ Joan Collins
No matter how you look at getting older, I think you're simply priceless...just like vintage wine! Happy birthday!
