40th Birthday Quotes & Wishes

Our collection of 40th birthday quotes to help wish that special someone a very happy birthday on this rather significant occasion!

Forty is a funny in-between sort of age. Not really old, not really young. As one person put it: "I'm not old, I'm just chronologically gifted".

Whether you want to tease someone about how old they are or give them a heartfelt congratulations on their birthday, these birthday quotes are a fun way to wish them a special day. They are all quite short, so they should fit into a birthday card or speech. I hope you enjoy them!
