Birthday quotes are often short and sweet, such as, "I’m so glad you were born, because you brighten my life and fill it with joy. Wishing you a day filled with love and cheer. Happy Birthday!" There are a variety of websites offering birthday quotes for loved ones.
Some birthday messages on the Internet are more poetic or romantic in nature. An example of this is, "One more year has come and gone; the sands of time keep trickling away; your birthday reminds me to let you know I'm thankful for you; each and every day." However, something brief could be considered an equally romantic gesture for the right person, such as, "Wishing you lots of hugs and kisses on your birthday, my love."
