21st Birthday Quotes

Funny and happy 21st birthday quotes and quotations


Turning 21 marks the beginning of a period when friends’ comments that an individual has a lot of gray matter upstairs is an observation on the power of their brain and not the premature appearance of it in their hair.

Hopefully, those statements are true both in that a person is becoming more intelligent as they reach the first decade of adulthood and not sporting gray hair at a time in life when the only gray that a person actually wants to see is on the leather interior of a shiny new convertible.

Sentiments expressed in 21st birthday quotes share that the stupidity of youth has been replaced by a keen observation of the world around an individual. A mindset is forming that makes it obvious that a nuclear freeze refers to attempts to halt the development of nuclear weapons and not a new jalapeno ice cream treat.

When a person turns 21, they know they will continue doing stupid things. But they can take solace in the knowledge that at 21 they can legally do the things they’ve been doing since they were 15. Twenty-one isn’t the end of a person’s youth but only a time for more carefree behavior that’s now accompanied – hopefully -- with a bit more maturity.
