Sam Levenson

The first guitar I ever got was for my 13th birthday.

Rick Springfield

My second play, The Birthday Party, I wrote in 1958 – or 1957. It was totally destroyed by the critics of the day, who called it an absolute load of rubbish.

Harold Pinter

And for the city’s birthday, we will host events in every neighborhood of the city, inviting all of our residents to share in the celebration of Boston’s great epic – the story of neighbors who support one another where it matters most.

Larry David

The day which we fear as our last is but the birthday of eternity.

Lisa Loeb

We’ll take the cake with the red cherry on top.

Navjot Singh Sidhu

Nicole will come up in conversations where it’s in a part of the conversation. Or we may be somewhere and I would tell some story about their mother and I. You know, we always honor her birthday.

O. J. Simpson

All I watch is the Food Network. I took a cheesemaking class a few weeks ago, and I told my family and friends to only get me kitchen stuff on my birthday. I’m into every kind of cookbook and anything by Anthony Bourdain. I’d love to own a restaurant if I could find the right chef.

Jesse McCartney

It was my 16th birthday – my mom and dad gave me my Goya classical guitar that day. I sat down, wrote this song, and I just knew that that was the only thing I could ever really do – write songs and sing them to people.

Stevie Nicks

My first recognition of age setting in was exactly on my 36th birthday. I have no idea why, on this day of all days, I looked in the mirror and realized my face no longer looked young.

Paulina Porizkova

I quit high school on my birthday. It was my senior year and I didn’t see the point. This was 1962, and I was ready to make music.

Barry White

You always get a special kick on opening day, no matter how many you go through. You look forward to it like a birthday party when you’re a kid. You think something wonderful is going to happen.

Some people won’t go the extra mile, and then on their birthday, when no one makes a fuss, they feel neglected and bitter.

Rachael Ray

All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.

I wrapped my Christmas presents early this year, but I used the wrong paper. See, the paper I used said ‘Happy Birthday’ on it. I didn’t want to waste it so I just wrote ‘Jesus’ on it.

Demetri Martin

You know you’re getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.

Bob Hope

Most of us can remember a time when a birthday – especially if it was one’s own – brightened the world as if a second sun has risen.

Robert Staughton Lynd

I told my father I wanted to play the banjo, and so he saved the money and got ready to give me a banjo for my next birthday, and between that time and my birthday, I lost interest in the banjo and was playing guitar.

Jackson Browne

Even when I was a kid, I had a good thing with kids. To this day, if I go to a birthday party with one of my kids, I swear to you, I am so much happier hanging out with my kids and their friends than talking to the grown-ups.

Shawn Levy

I suddenly realized how much I loved her when we attended Alfred Hitchcock’s 75th birthday party last August. There was something magical about that night, and it made me see how much she really meant to me.

Rod Taylor

For my birthday this year, my girlfriends – who knew I’d just inherited my dad’s turntable – gave me a carton of albums like ‘Blue Kentucky Girl,’ by Emmylou Harris, and ‘Off the Wall,’ by Michael Jackson. It’s all stuff we grew up with. I mean, you can’t have a music collection without Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ – it just can’t be done!

Connie Britton

My best kiss was on stage. Kelly Rowland from Destiny’s Child gave me a really nice soft kiss on my lips during a performance on my birthday. It was amazing.

Chris Brown

I did a cake for the 60th birthday of Elton John, for Britney Spears’ 27th birthday and for the ‘Circus’ album she put out – the cake had circus themes. I prepared a cake for a surprise 82nd birthday event for the architect Frank Gehry the cake was comprised of mini-replicas of his buildings.

Ron Ben-Israel

I had been offered a Hollywood contract before my 18th birthday. It gave me the spark I needed.

God gave us the gift of life it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.

Voltaire

It is ironic that the one thing that all religions recognize as separating us from our creator, our very self-consciousness, is also the one thing that divides us from our fellow creatures. It was a bitter birthday present from evolution.

Annie Dillard

My mom and my father’s birthday are on the same day.

Victor Cruz

Any time women come together with a collective intention, it’s a powerful thing. Whether it’s sitting down making a quilt, in a kitchen preparing a meal, in a club reading the same book, or around the table playing cards, or planning a birthday party, when women come together with a collective intention, magic happens.

Phylicia Rashad

As I approach my 88th birthday, it’s become apparent to me that my eyes and ears, among other appurtenances, aren’t quite what they used to be. The prospect of long flights to wherever in search of whatever are not quite as appealing.

Mike Wallace

For my birthday my husband learned to cook and is cooking one day a week for me. But he only likes to do fancy dishes. So we end up with weird, obscure things in the refrigerator.

Cheryl Hines

Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.

Sammy Hagar

If we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday at a time of presidential inaugurals, this is thanks to Ronald Reagan who created the holiday, and not to the Democratic Congress of the Carter years, which rejected it.

David Horowitz

There weren’t any astronauts until I was about 10. Yuri Gagarin went into space right around my 10th birthday.

John L. Phillips

I grew up doing all that stuff because I was obsessed with the ’50s. I had sock hops for birthday parties. So I’ve always done The Twist and stuff. It was pretty natural and, with my parents doing it all the time, I’d just copy them. Not very pretty.

Brittany Snow

The turning point was when I hit my 30th birthday. I thought, if really want to write, it’s time to start. I picked up the book How to Write a Novel in 90 Days. The author said to just write three pages a day, and I figured, I can do this. I never got past Page 3 of that book.

James Rollins

One I built when I was a kid, and it was a real miniature of Disneyland. I fell in love with the park when I went there with my parents on my 12th birthday.

Bobby Sherman

It’s odd the things that people remember. Parents will arrange a birthday party, certain it will stick in your mind forever. You’ll have a nice time, then two years later you’ll be like, ‘There was a pony there? Really? And a clown with one leg?’

David Sedaris

When I was a kid, for my birthday every year, my mother made me pasta bechamel, which is rigatoni with a white cream sauce.

Mikhail Baryshnikov

I want to say that probably 24 hours after I told CBS that I was stepping down at my 65th birthday, I was already regretting it. And I regretted it every day since.

Walter Cronkite

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.

Brit Marling

Mum loves me being famous! She is so excited and proud, as she had me so young and couldn’t support me, so I am living her dream, it’s sweeter for both of us. It’s her 40th birthday soon and I’m going to buy her 40 presents.

Adele

The reason I met my husband was because I remembered a friend’s birthday. The moral of the story is: Remember people’s birthdays.

I always wanted to shave. It is a very natural process. For my birthday I got a lot of shaving stuff.

Chaz Bono

If you can give your child only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.

Bruce Barton

With a recent birthday, I’ve been acting now for twenty years.

Thayer David

I wasn’t very good about juggling family and my career. I was interested in who was coming to the children’s birthday party, what my son was writing. I was thinking about Legos.

Jill Clayburgh

I’ll never forget my 24th birthday when my tooth got punched out. And for a second I was like, it would be really hilarious if I sold it on eBay. But I can’t, that’s just too creepy. I don’t think I can go there.

Evan Rachel Wood

The best way to remember your wife’s birthday is to remember it once.

E. Joseph Cossman

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.

Lionel Blue

I saw Richard Linklater’s film ‘Slacker’ for my twenty-first birthday. That was the moment when it all seemed possible. This guy gave me hope.

Kevin Smith

You know you’re getting old when you get that one candle on the cake. It’s like, ‘See if you can blow this out.’

Jerry Seinfeld

I went to a rare live Van Dyke show and met him there. And then he came to a show of mine and we spoke back stage. The third time was at Brian Wilson’s birthday party.

Matthew Sweet

John Candy knew he was going to die. He told me on his 40th birthday. He said, well, Maureen, I’m on borrowed time.

Maureen O’Hara

Love the giver more than the gift.

Brigham Young

The Queen of Crafts herself, Martha Stewart, and I have the same birthday. I prefer to think it’s the glue-gun wielding, perfect-tart-producing Martha and not the copper pan-throwing, jail-going Martha. But I suppose if I am going to share a calendar square with some of Martha, I have to share it with all of Martha.

Sloane Crosley

Brilliantly lit from stem to stern, she looked like a sagging birthday cake.

Walter Lord

Well, I started conducting kind of by accident. I wanted to give myself a special birthday present for my fortieth birthday, and I was living in San Francisco at the time and I started attending some of the concerts and then simply dropping hints.

Bobby McFerrin

About astrology and palmistry: they are good because they make people vivid and full of possibilities. They are communism at its best. Everybody has a birthday and almost everybody has a palm.

When someone asks if you’d like cake or pie, why not say you want cake and pie?

The worst part about celebrating another birthday is the shock that you’re only as well as you are.

I wanted to buy a candle holder, but the store didn’t have one. So I got a cake.

Mitch Hedberg

At her birthday, my seven-year-old daughter will say that she wants these big cakes and certain expensive toys as presents, and I can’t say no to her. It would just break my heart. But when I was little, for birthdays we just played outside and we were happy if we got any cake.

Goran Ivanisevic

I’m a summer baby, so I usually have my birthday as a good summer memory.

Sloane Crosley

Like many women my age, I am 28 years old.

Mary Schmich

I’m most comfortable in my birthday suit.

Amanda Seyfried

I’m over the moon to be involved in the ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas special. I can’t quite believe it as it’s a part of the family tradition at the Jenkins household. I heard the news that I got the role on my 30th birthday and it was the best birthday present ever.

Katherine Jenkins

If you look over the years, the styles have changed – the clothes, the hair, the production, the approach to the songs. The icing to the cake has changed flavors. But if you really look at the cake itself, it’s really the same.

John Oates

Thirty was so strange for me. I’ve really had to come to terms with the fact that I am now a walking and talking adult.

C. S. Lewis

I was fired at the pinnacle of my career, on my 39th birthday. And in the year that followed, I learned that there are many psychological phases of being ‘let go.’

Mika Brzezinski

We didn’t have a whole lot of money when I was growing up either. I would always ask for magic books or magic tricks for my birthday or for Christmas and the rest of the year I either had to mow lawns or find part time jobs to help supplement the cost of doing magic.

Lance Burton

The return of my birthday, if I remember it, fills me with thoughts which it seems to be the general care of humanity to escape.

As far as those kinds of things, I also played at the concert to call for the release of Nelson Mandela when he was a political prisoner in South Africa. We were celebrating his 70th birthday and calling for his release.

Cat Deeley

Citizens, thank you for all your birthday wishes. I am 88 years old today and still lucky to live in the greatest city in the world.

Ed Koch

Lucy took care of me on the set, and made sure that none of the crew cussed around me. She also had birthday parties for me and made sure that they were well attended.

Otis Blackwell

I had a birthday one night on a farm we were shooting on. I walked into the tent, and there were 150 people waiting for me, all wearing masks of my face.

Stephen Hopkins

I used to be good with kids, but as I get older, I’m grumpy and terrible with them. As for doing a gig at a 6-year old’s birthday party, you couldn’t pay me enough.

Johnny Vegas

Let them eat cake.

Marie Antoinette

My brother got a .22 for his 12th birthday I got a .22. He got a hunting knife I got a hunting knife.

Stephanie Cutter

My son had his eighth birthday recently and we had a chance to borrow the film and show it to all of his friends that was at his birthday party and they loved it. I was a little nervous. I said they might not even like it, and say his daddy’s movie is wack, but they loved it.

Though beauty gives you a weird sense of entitlement, it’s rather frightening and threatening to have others ascribe such importance to something you know you’re just renting for a while.

Beauty is being in harmony with what you are.

Peter Nivio Zarlenga

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.

When I first thought of the idea for ‘Sweet Valley High,’ I loved the idea of high school as microcosm of the real world.

This would be girl-driven, very different, I decided – and indeed it is.

Tadao Ando

This whole beauty thing is something I’ve never comprehended.

Donald Trump

Music, as many people have said, is the universal language. Of course points are made which make you think about things, but ultimately it makes you feel.

Beauty is but a flower, which wrinkles will devour.

A supermodel needed to be able to be on ‘Sports Illustrated,’ to be able to walk runways, to be able to do beauty ads, to be on covers.

The terrifying and edible beauty of Art Nouveau architecture.

The beauty about the D-list is that people who are on it probably don’t know they are.

Kathy Griffin

I like to find the beauty in the ugly. When I’m in a thrift store, I gravitate toward pieces I know I’ll wear a ton, and insane pieces that I’m sure most people would consider gross.

One of my favorite beauty products is Vincent Longo Water Canvas creamy blush. I have it in every color and I’ve been using it for 5 years and that’s all I put on when I leave the house. It looks so natural I just put a little bit on my cheeks to give them some color.

Jennifer Garner

I think we have become obsessed with beauty and personally I’m really saddened by the way women mutilate their faces today in search of that.

Baalbek is so beautiful. It is the heart of beauty in the Middle East – I want to embrace these people with my music. I will try so hard for them. Their president is a Christian, their prime minister is a Muslim. Music is for everyone.

Mstislav Rostropovich

It’s not some great work of beauty and love to be a rock-and-roll singer.

Robert Plant

But the beauty of Einstein’s equations, for example, is just as real to anyone who’s experienced it as the beauty of music. We’ve learned in the 20th century that the equations that work have inner harmony.

Edward Witten

Throughout the centuries, man has considered himself beautiful. I rather suppose that man only believes in his own beauty out of pride that he is not really beautiful and he suspects this himself for why does he look on the face of his fellow-man with such scorn?

Isidore Ducasse Lautreamont

Today I see beauty everywhere I go, in every face I see, in every single soul.

Gustave Courbet

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.

H. P. Lovecraft

The game in beauty is changing so much, if your product isn’t high tech or can’t make a unique performance claim – plump your lips, reduce your lines, look glossy, and stay on for 24 hours – you can’t go to market today. I’m not just talking about a $20 lipstick, but a $5 lipstick!

Andrea Jung

Khloe Kardashian

For the greater beauty of the instrument, the balls representing the planets are to be of considerable bigness but so contrived, that they may be taken off at pleasure, and others, much smaller, and fitter for some purposes, put in their places.

Jerry Hall

Well I do find the beauty in animals. I find beauty everywhere. I find beauty in my garden.

June Jordan

O, thou art fairer than the evening air clad in the beauty of a thousand stars.

Julia Roberts

The problem with beauty is that it’s like being born rich and getting poorer.

Marguerite Young

One must learn, if one is to see the beauty in Japan, to like an extraordinarily restrained and delicate loveliness.

Robert Louis Stevenson

As an inspiration to the author, I do not think the cat can be over-estimated. He suggests so much grace, power, beauty, motion, mysticism. I do not wonder that many writers love cats I am only surprised that all do not.

Ugliness is in a way superior to beauty because it lasts.

Serge Gainsbourg

The beauty we love is very silent. It smiles softly to itself, but never speaks.

Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

Louisa May Alcott

Beauty and the Beast seemed like it all was really brown. The whole thing was just so brown and orange and yellow, like Burger King or something. I don’t think I would have liked Beauty and the Beast at any age.

Colin Farrell

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Peggy Fleming

Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars – mere globs of gas atoms. I, too, can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more?

Bryant H. McGill

Like charity, I believe glamour should begin at home.

Loretta Young

I mean the beauty of being a writer is it’s not like being a swimmer. When they were talking about our Olympic swimmers and they’d say, ‘Oh she’s so old,’ and she’s all of 25 or something.

Felicity Huffman

To give pain is the tyranny to make happy, the true empire of beauty.

Samuel Butler

The pattern of a newspaperman’s life is like the plot of ‘Black Beauty.’ Sometimes he finds a kind master who gives him a dry stall and an occasional bran mash in the form of a Christmas bonus, sometimes he falls into the hands of a mean owner who drives him in spite of spavins and expects him to live on potato peelings.

A. J. Liebling

Jordan has a strange, haunting beauty and a sense of timelessness. Dotted with the ruins of empires once great, it is the last resort of yesterday in the world of tomorrow. I love every inch of it.

Rachel Bilson

Poetry a criticism of life under the conditions fixed for such a criticism by the laws of poetic truth and poetic beauty.

George Bancroft

The beauty of this country and what people participate in is the competitive nature that we allow to exist and the fact is that we are better because we have great competitors.

Lee Scott

Such discussions help us very little to enjoy what has been well done in art or poetry, to discriminate between what is more and what is less excellent in them, or to use words like beauty, excellence, art, poetry, with a more precise meaning than they would otherwise have.

Hayden Panettiere

Thanks to capitalism, the importance placed on beauty has never been so manipulated.

Michael Stipe

Lafcadio Hearn

The beauty of a main title is that you establish your main theme and maybe a bit of your secondary theme. You plant the seed that you’re going to go water later in the score. And so, having that removed just made it so much more difficult.

Danny Elfman

Art is beauty, the perpetual invention of detail, the choice of words, the exquisite care of execution.

Truth isn’t always beauty, but the hunger for it is.
