26 Engrossing 30th Birthday Quotes


Are you close to celebrating your 30th birthday? A bundle of emotions springs up when you think of being 30. Would it be any different from the stormy years of teenage and beyond? Would you be simply showing your age on your skin, or being asked to act your age, as common wisdom says? Halfway between 20 and 40 lie the eventful ten years that make up the ’30s.
