40th Birthday Card

For your kind information I am going to declare that in this hub you will get a lot of great 40th birthday card quotes. Some of the quotes are from great people but the sources of some are unknown.

I know that the definition of great is subjective here; that means what our humble friend Thomson may find mind blowing can seem dull and bogus to you, John Dough. It is very much possible that you may not like all these 40th birthday wishes but I think you will find some quotes suitable for your test and your sense of greatness. Well, if you do not like any of these birthday quotes then I'll give you 1 million dollars (just kidding!).

Everybody knows that the 40th is a milestone birthday. It is special and should be treated differently from say, 37th or 44th birthday. That is why you need to choose best birthday quotes to write on the card.

Here goes some quote for the forty years old.

40 is the new thirty

40th Birthday Poem

Life to Enroll

I realized, I was forty years old,
All this drama began to unfold.
Woke up, one morning; a pretty bad cold,
Rest in bed, repeatedly told.

I lay there in thought, uncontrolled
Upon defeat and surrender, I was not sold.
With a sudden spark, I became truly bold,
Jumped out of bed and youth filled with gold.

With peace and confidence, downstairs I strolled,
Opened the door, and life, I enrolled.
A few hurdles here, my way they were bowled,
Forty years of experience, success was foretold.

By Martin Dejnicki
