birthday

A Quote by Marlo Morgan on happy unbirthday, birthday, parties, time passage, growth, personal growth, aborigine wisdom, australia, talents, and talent

During our journey there were two occasions that we celebrated by honoring someone's talent.  Everyone is recognized by a special party, but it has nothing to do with age or birthdate - it is in recognition of uniqueness and contribution to life.  They believe that the purpose for the passage of time is to allow a person to become better, wiser, to express more and more of one's beingness.  So if you are a better person this year than last, and only you know that for certain, then you call for a party.  When you say you are ready, everyone honors that.

A Quote by John Ronald Reuel "J. R. R." Tolkien on birthday, darkness, power, and present

Bilbo first finds the Ring, but knows not what he has stumbled into! Not far away was his island, of which Bilbo knew nothing, and there in his hiding-place he kept a few wretched oddments, and one very beautiful thing, very beautiful, very wonderful. He had a ring, a golden ring, a precious ring. "My birthday-present!" he whispered to himself, as he had often done in the endless dark days. "That's what he wants now, yes; we wants it!" He wanted it because it was a ring of power, and if you slipped that ring on your finger, you were invisible; only in the full sunlight could you be seen, and then only by your shadow, and that would be shaky and faint. "My birthday-present! It came to me on my birthday, my precious."

J.R.R. Tolkien (1892 - 1973)
