60th Birthday One Liners


Today is the 60th birthday of the next King of England so I thought I'd gather together some 60th birthday one liners and I'll tell you why

The most popular search term under the heading of 60th birthday is not 60th birthday gift ideas but '60th birthday one liners'. This wouldn't be odd if people generally when searching for something to say on someone's birthday used the expression 'one liners'...but they don't. They say birthday poems, birthday verses, birthday quotes, usually accompanied by the adjectives 'free' and 'funny'. When it comes to the 60th birthday it would seem that people, en masse, feel that the poor 60 year old hasn't the attention span to cope with a whole four line verse but can just about manage a one liner

If you Google 60th birthday one liners you get on the first page not a single site that's in the business of providing things to say on birthday cards..and there are many, including my own verses4cards site so, for example a candy company has exploited the popularity of the search term and the lack of attention given to it by poem/quote providers.

Well I'm a poem/verse/rhyme provider and by virtue of the following one liners, hand selected by me, we'll see whether this blog entry on this brand new blog climbs the greasy pole and gets beyond the candy company

UPDATE

19 days after '60th birthday one liners' was posted here it was on page one of the Google results page in 4th position just below the candy company. I've made another change so in another 20 days or so I hope to get in pole position. I'll let you know. UPDATE On 13th Dec, just 29 days after posting, this page made it to No 1 using the search term 60th birthday one liners.



So here goes


Happy 60th Birthday. My thoughts are free to go anywhere, but it's surprising how often they head in your direction.


You are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely." -Ogden Nash


Happy 60th Birthday! You're not getting older...just more distinguished!


It is often said that With Age Comes Wisdom and you're One Of The Wisest People I Know!


Just like fine wine, you grow better with the years! Happy 60th Birthday!

Today, be aware of how you are spending your 1,440 beautiful moments, and spend them wisely... and since today is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun, enjoy the trip.


You're not getting older, you're getting better.

Youth is a work of nature, but age is a work of art! Congratulations on your second childhood! Happy 60th Birthday!


As William Shakespeare might have said of you
Have you not a moist eye, a dry hand, a yellow cheek, a white beard, a decreasing leg, an increasing belly? Is not your voice broken, your wind short, your chin double, your wit single, and every part about you blasted with antiquity?


"There are three hundred and sixty-four days when you might get un-birthday presents and only one for birthday presents, you know." This Lewis Carroll quotation is invaluable and is my birthday present to you


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

God grant me the senility To forget the people I never liked, The good fortune to run into the ones I do, And the eyesight to tell the difference.


Never go to a doctor whose office plants have died.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away from them and you have their shoes.


Sixty! Now is the time to make your mark on the world – explore the Antarctic or become an astronaut. Make your mind up to take on exciting new challenges - straight after your afternoon nap.



Today, on your 60th birthday be aware of how you are spending your 1,440 beautiful moments, and spend them wisely.


Happy 60th Birthday and remember, as the Chinese say: You can not prevent the birds of sorrow from flying over your head, but you can prevent them from building a nest in your hair (added extra)
Remember hair!


How did it get so late so soon?

It's night before it's afternoon.

December is here before it's June.

My goodness how the time has flewn.

How did it get so late so soon?

Dr. Seuss



May the best of your past (and you’ve got a lot) be the worst of your future. Happy 60th



Happy 60th Birthday and by now you‘ll know: There is still no cure for the common birthday and you’ll also be aware that reaching another birthday is much better than the alternative


Happy 60th Birthday . Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending


If you cannot do great things at the age of 60, do small things in a great way


Happy 60th birthday HRH Charles
and
Happy 60th Birthday Phil Bex
(a dear old school pal of mine)

Life is a battle, if you don't know how to defend yourself then you'll end up being a loser. So, better take any challenges as your stepping stone to become a better person. Have fun, explore and make a lot of memories.
