When I was little I thought, isn’t it nice that everybody celebrates on my birthday? Because it’s July 4th.
About astrology and palmistry: they are good because they make people vivid and full of possibilities. They are communism at its best. Everybody has a birthday and almost everybody has a palm.
All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.
Being seventy is not a sin.
Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.
