When celebrating someone's 65th birthday, sayings that detail a reflection of the person's life, personality and growth are appropriate. In addition, well wishes for a long and prosperous future are common during a birthday celebration of someone who has officially entered his senior years.
Phrases such as "I can't believe how time flies when we're having fun" or "You don't look a day over 65" capture the person's positive traits during a birthday celebration. Phrases that depict a person's personality, such as "You may be a senior citizen but you still act and look like a teenager" or "You're only 65 on the outside — the inside is as spunky and playful as a child" reflect more on the person's fun spirit versus the age. Funny sayings, such as "Inside every 65-year-old is a young person wondering what happened" and "You're at an age when your back goes out as much as you do" can prompt a playful smile from the recipient on his birthday. Another popular phrase that offers a humorous moment is "Your age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping it from trickling down into your body." Sayings can also include a genuine happy birthday wish and hopes for a healthy and happy future.
